An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a direct shorefront property in the heart of Sandycove, one of South County Dublin’s finest and most sought after addresses. Mornington Avenue is a little known road of just three houses that forms the point just off Sandycove Avenue East.
Carrig Na Chattan is an aesthetically pleasing detached period family home of immense charm and character built in an Arts and Crafts style that occupies an impressive corner position boasting stunning views of Joyce’s Tower to the side and unparalleled spectacular sea views across to Howth from the rear with the rocks below the back wall.
A striking wrought iron railed entrance leads to the hall door. The beautiful generously proportioned hall opens to a kitchen/breakfast room, pantry and utility. To the rear of the house is the drawing room with large bay window looking out the garden across to Howth. Next is the dining room with a bay window to the side with a view of Joyce’s Tower in the distance. Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, four with attractive sea views and a bathroom/w.c. concludes the accommodation at this level.
The rear garden of the property is a particular feature of this wonderful period home as it is private, laid out in lawn measuring approximately 33.5m (110ft) in length. It enjoys an unrivalled 180Â° sea vista from Dun Laoghaire to Dalkey whilst looking straight across to Howth.
The location of the property needs little introduction and is steeped in history. It offers easy access to DART and bus services. Located within walking distance are the villages of Sandycove, Glasthule and Dalkey which boast a wealth of amenities including top class restaurants, bistros, pubs, shops and boutiques. Also, within walking distance are the famous Forty Foot at Sandycove, Killiney Hill, tennis, golf, football and GAA clubs. Some of Dublin’s most renowned primary and secondary schools are all within easy reach. A strong historical and cultural heritage surrounds the wider Sandycove and Dalkey areas including Joyce’s Tower and the medieval Dalkey Castle. Dun Laoghaire is nearby with its ever walkable piers, the People’s Park (which hosts a Farmer’s market every Sunday) and numerous shops and restaurants in the town. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiasts. The convenience and desirability of this house and its location cannot be overstated.
