Nestling on the eastern slopes of Killiney Hill and enjoying beautiful sea views across Killiney Bay, our home is an enchanting Edwardian Residence of enormous character and charm and comes with all the modern comforts that one would expect from a house of this calibre.. In keeping with the era in which it was built there are many striking features such as high cornice ceilings, bay windows and marble fireplaces. Killiney is among one of Dublins most exclusive residential areas and it's unspoilt beauty, fantastic local restaurants, and pubs, and proximity to Dublin City have made is the home of choice for many well known artists, writers and musicians.
It has featured in the works of many well known writers such as James Joyce, Hugh Leonard, Flann O'Brien and Maeve Binchy. The house is literally a one minute walk away from Killiney Beach, five minute walk to Killiney Hill Park and a two minute walk to the local train station bringing you to Dublin City Centre in 24 minutes. For those wishing to use it as a base to explore the many different parts of Ireland, it would also work very well.
