JB is proud to present this imposing Victorian property to the market. Glenview is approached via electric gates from Thormanby Road and is situated on approximately 1.2 acres of landscaped grounds with spectacular sea and island views. This stunning property enjoys immense character throughout and retains many period features indicative of the era of construction including high ceilings, magnificent fireplaces and attractive ceiling coving. With extensive accommodation of approximately 300 sqm (3,229 sq ft), the ground floor consists of an entrance porch through to hall with living room, dining room and drawing room off. There is also a guest wc, cloakroom and closet conveniently located off the hallway. A separate inner hallway leads to an extensive kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys garden views to the front and also magnificent views of Irelands Eye and Dublin Bay. For added convenience there is a utility room, cellar, boiler room and wc off this hallway. At first floor level, the master bedroom suite has spectacular sea views of Irelands Eye, Lambay Island and Dublin Bay, stretching as far as Portmarnock, Skerries and beyond. There is a walk in dressing room area and en suite bathroom off. There are three more double sized bedrooms at this level (one with en suite), family bathroom and hot press. This wonderful residence is complemented by extensive landscaped gardens which have been nurtured over the years. Mainly presented in lawn, the garden boasts sea and island views and has an array of colourful flowers, shrubs and mature hedging which provides privacy at all times. There is a stone built outhouse for further storage and many suntrap areas that are perfect for outdoor entertaining. The large, sweeping driveway allows for ample off-street parking and the extensive lawned area to the front of the property, which was previously used as a tennis court, could easily be restored. Glenview is just a short walk to all of the amenities in Howth Village including shops, restaurants, bars and public library to name but a few. Howth itself offers sailing at Howth Yacht Club and golf at the nearby Deer Park and Howth Golf Clubs. The breath-taking coastal and hill walks that Howth is so rightly famed for are all within easy reach. Access to the city centre is very convenient with a frequent bus service and Howth DART Station close by. This entire property has immense character throughout and now offers the discerning purchaser an opportunity to acquire a substantial home of distinction in a highly sought-after coastal location.
