Nestled in a picturesque enclave just off Sandycove Road, Sandycove House stands as a testament to Victorian elegance and timeless charm. This semi-detached two-storey over garden level family period residence offers a truly unique living experience, combining period features with modern comforts. Situated within a leisurely stroll of Sandycove Point, the iconic Forty Foot, Glasthule Village and Dalkey Town, this home presents a rare opportunity to embrace coastal living at its very finest. As you approach Sandycove House, you are greeted by pillared vehicular gated access, leading to a gravelled off-street parking area with ample space for multiple cars comfortably. Beyond the entrance lies a private oasis, adorned with lush lawns and bordered by mature shrubbery and a selection of mature trees, creating a serene and tranquil setting. A wide side access leads through to the sunny south-facing rear garden which is a particular feature of this superb property, offering a perfect spot for play, relaxation and al fresco dining. The garden is thoughtfully landscaped with a combination of patio, lawn bordered by granite walls and complemented by an array of mature trees, shrubs, and planting. The overall site area extends to approximately 0.18 hectares (0.45 acres), providing ample space for outdoor enjoyment and offers vast potential for further development subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission. There is also a very useful garden store or garage workshop neatly tucked away to the side. Stepping inside, Sandycove House welcomes you with gracious room proportions and a sense of grandeur indicative of its Victorian heritage. While the property has been well maintained, there is plenty of opportunity for a discerning buyer to impart their personal touch and modernise the generous reception areas and bedroom accommodation. The drawing room and main bedroom are particularly fine examples of this period era and enjoy large feature sliding sash windows and excellent ceiling detailing. The location of this home is second to none making it the perfect location for those looking to establish themselves on one of Dublin’s most desirable and sought after addresses with easy access to the DART and regular bus services. Within walking distance are the villages of Sandycove, Glasthule and Dalkey Town Centre boasting a wealth of amenities including top class restaurants, bistros, shops and boutiques together with friendly pubs, tennis clubs, golf clubs, rugby, football and GAA clubs. Some of Dublin’s most highly regarded primary and secondary schools are located within easy reach. The tranquil, scenic walks by the seafront and over Killiney/Dalkey hills are particularly popular and a cycle track now also connects Sandycove Harbour with Blackrock Town Centre. Historical heritage surrounds the wider Sandycove area including Martello Tower at Sandycove Point which featured in James Joyce’s Ulysses and the medieval Dalkey Castle. Close by are the People’s Park with a famous Sunday Farmers market and the wonderful suburbs of Dalkey and Glasthule with its famed seafront as well as Dun Laoghaire Harbour and piers, mean that the convenience and desirability of the area cannot be overstated. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina at Dun Laoghaire will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast.
