We invite you to look at our Virtual Videos online.
This 5 bedroom Georgian residence stands tall and proud on one of Dublin's most scenic roads, with a remarkable and panoramic sea vista making this a picture-perfect home, an idyllic location to reside. This charming Georgian house dating from 1843 offers exceptionally spacious accommodation and embodies all the needs of the 21st century making it ideal for the family market.
The current owners have lovingly maintained, restored and upgraded it over the years to ensure so many of the original features are still intact allowing the prospective buyers the opportunity to take ownership of a superior and elegant residence. It could be argued that this is one of the most spectacular homes to come on the market in recent times and offers a combined blend of luxury and comfort with an excellent balance of living and bedroom accommodation. Mount Vernon will surely raise eyebrows in the local residential market.
This impressive house is set back from the main road and on inspection, viewers will be impressed by the retention of many period internal features of the Georgian era including; original plasterwork, high ceilings with exquisite ceiling cornices and centre roses, timber doors, impressive fireplaces, sash windows with shutters and original front door with fanlight and granite steps. Coming through the railed gated drive as you alight the granite steps you are walking into a world of charm and character. The entrance hall highlights what is in store in terms of the proportions and the intricacy of the original period features. The tiled hall features high ceilings, beautifully restored coving, centre rose and original spindle staircase.
Off the hallway to the right are two magnificent adjoining interconnecting reception rooms that boast yet again high ceilings, gold leaf coving that has been restored, centre rose, magnificent fireplaces, sash windows and window shutters. The drawing room to the front captures the most spectacular sea views and is a room where one could sit back in luxury and drift away on a cloud of tranquillity. The dining room can cater for entertaining on a grand scale and also features French doors leading out onto a patio area that is a real oasis.Further down the hall is a cosy living space featuring a brick open fireplace creating a main focal point in the room. From this room there is also access to a cellar that possibly could be converted into a wine cellar, a great space for any discerning wine connoisseurs.
To the rear of the house is a big open plan modern kitchen and dining space and is in keeping with the style of the house. This is the heart and hub of the home where the entire family can gather. The kitchen offers ample space for the most discerning of chefs and also features high-end built in appliances making dinner preparation and baking an enjoyment. The dining part to the kitchen overlooks the rear walled garden.
From the kitchen and dining space patio doors lead out to a 150ft garden that is split over three levels. A beautiful paved area to cater for all your summer BBqs and outdoor gatherings, steps then lead up to a lawn garden that features mature trees and shrubs giving a country stately feel and offering immense privacy. Further up the garden is another section which could be arguably a site with potential subject to PP. There is also a garage with a WC which could be easily converted for numerous uses, such as an au-pairs quarters, art studio, gym or home office. It is also important to note that there is enough width along the side passage to drive your car around to the rear.
A utility room and a downstairs WC completes the downstairs accommodation.
Continuing up the magnificent and original spiral staircase you reach the first return. On this level you have two bedrooms, one which is currently being used as a living space. This could be a great ‘pad’ and every teenagers' dreams if they were to get the entire floor. A large family bathroom completes this floor. On to the first floor you are completely struck by the proportions, high ceilings and the ever changing sea views. There is a magnificent landing space on this floor that is being used as another living space, yet again the owners utilising the incredible views. To the left is the master bedroom. This room features sash windows with shutters, high ceiling, original coving and feature fireplace. This room has a beautiful classical feel to it that would definitely grace any New York Boutique hotel and also has the advantage of an en-suite. Next to the master bedroom is what you would think only the most enviable celebrities could have, a library and a pool room. This could of course be a bedroom but the owners have taken full advantage of what only can be described as a retreat for one to capture the sea views, St Anne’s and Royal Dublin golf clubs, Howth and the Dublin mountains. It is also important to note that part of the property includes 150ft x 100ft ownership of the sea, another magical amenity to this fine residence. This is a home that keeps on giving! Now to the top of this superb home is a 5th bedroom. This bedroom space offers a walk in wardrobe and a fully tiled en-suite with a shower room.
There is no doubt this is the five bedroom house to be in while working from home or simply availing of, or enjoying further living space, combining period elegance with all the convenience required for modern living.
