LISTING OF THE DAY
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Price: €9 million (US$10.6 million)
Tucked away behind ornate wrought-iron gates and down a winding driveway, visitors will find County Dublin’s Montebello estate on Killiney Hill Road. This charming Victorian manor house is set amid approximately 3.9 acres, where likely every one of the country’s fabled “40 shades of green” can be found in its parkland style gardens to the front and formal gardens to the side and rear.
Indeed, one of the property’s major selling points is that the plot is surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, which provide complete privacy from the surrounding area.
“We are seeing quite a lot of interest from international buyers, including from U.K. but even all the way from Hollywood,” said listing agent Ben Lillington-Lester of Savills in South Dublin.
The home’s main living space includes a light-filled drawing room, an interconnecting dining room, a conservatory/sun room, and a separate sitting room as well as a kitchen and breakfast room to the rear. All seven bedrooms, including the master suite, are located on the upper floor.
According to the listing, the house dates from the 1870s, and features high ceilings and ornate plasterwork. Many of its original features have been preserved throughout the residence.
“I personally love the painted ceiling cornicing and roses,” Mr. Lillington-Lester said. “The home also features some beautifully stripped original woodwork, including two large pillars in the reception hall.”
The 7,858-square-foot house has seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms.
The property has a lot of extras, including a detached gate lodge (which currently houses the grounds staff), a pair of stables and a swimming pool with an adjacent pool house that has a changing space, shower and sauna. The house also has a large roof terrace with panoramic views of the area.
Leisure facilities in the area abound, including golf, swimming, sailing and stunning coastal walks around the hills of Killiney and Dalkey. Nearby Dalkey Village boasts a wide variety of restaurants, bars and boutiques. The M50 highway and N11 road are readily accessible to cars and nearby public transportation options include the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit), bus routes and the LUAS (tram/light rail system) stop at Cherrywood.
