Hill House is a well detached residence standing majestically on the top of Dalkey Hill ensuring an enviable birds eye panoramic view over Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire, Dublin Bay to Howth and out towards the city. This is perhaps, Dalkeys finest elevated site of which this two-storey house takes full advantage with fabulous views from most rooms. Furthermore, the spectacular grounds extend to approx. 0.76 acres and are beautifully landscaped and planted.
A house like this rarely comes to the market so when it does it is easy to understand the strong interest generated. The extensive accommodation has been designed to deliver maximum effect from its spectacular position. To deliver the "wow" factor the generous living/dining accommodation is situated on the first floor, each area has a different view, whether it is the city & Howth from the drawing room area, Killiney Bay from the dining area window and indeed Killiney Bay over to Bray Head from the kitchen. A wraparound balcony runs across the front of the property with a sitting area on the westerly side taking full advantage of the view. Each room has superb proportions ideal for their designated purpose. The kitchen is particularly attractive, a country style kitchen of solid pine salvaged from the old Ivy baths. The kitchen enjoys access to the large south facing Indian sandstone patio area. Off the double height landing with two large skylights are a guest w.c., a study which again enjoys access to the rear garden and the main bedroom suite which is double aspect and is complete with a large ensuite shower room.
The downstairs accommodation is currently split into two self-contained units, the first is a one-bedroom unit to the front with living room, kitchen area, bedroom and shower room. The second unit is accessed from the size of the house and incorporates a super open plan kitchen/living/dining area with utility room off, two double bedrooms, a main bathroom with shower and cast-iron bath. These units can very easily be re-incorporated into the main house by the removal of two studded walls.
The grounds are another real feature of this important property, wonderfully mature after years of loving care from the current owner. Extending to approx. 0.76 acre there is the orchard to the left of the property, mature hedging to the front and a glorious south facing rear garden to the back. The rear garden has a large Indian sandstone patio area off the kitchen and study, a wonderfully private lawned area with a large garden room.
Finally, the location in Dalkey is superb, the main street is close by with its array of specialty shops, schools, the DART and some of the town's most enjoyable walks.
