DescriptionSherry Fitzgerald is proud to present “Bendemeer”, 42 Howth Road, Sutton, a hidden gem, located on the main road from Sutton Cross to Howth village, along the north coast of a spectacular Peninsula.
A detached dormer bungalow built in the 1930's and extended to the back in the 1970's, a testament to the craftsmanship of other times, with many original features which include fire places, original staircase in the heart of the house , and high ceilings with covings and centre rose. “Bendemeer” has retained its old world eloquence while moving with the times and interlacing the modern unobtrusively. A beautiful, bright family home exuding character and atmosphere, ready for the new.
Remote from the hustle and bustle, it nestles back from the road, in its own green space, of approximately 0.3 acres and is within walking distance of the Burrow Beach.
Access by way of driveway from the road, approaching the property, the bay windows and original tiled front porch are unique stand out features to the front. Beyond the hall door a spacious entrance hall connects to ground level facilities and accommodation areas, comprising of breakfast room, kitchen, utility area, living room, study, dining room, sitting room, bathroom, and three bedrooms. Upstairs there is the Dormer bedroom and a superb view with extensive storage space in the attic.
Flanked by grass lawns back and front, getting most light to the front, morning, and most light to the back, afternoon and evening, Bendemeer is light filled with so much possibility.
Location is most convenient with a host of amenities on your doorstep including schools like Burrow NS, St Fintans primary & secondary, Santa Sabina, and Sutton Park. There is also excellent public transport on your doorstep including bus and DART to & from Dublin City. There is a local shopping centre within minutes walk. There are an abundance of natural walks close by including; Burrow beach, Howth Harbour and Howth head & cliff walks. Super sporting facilities like tennis, rugby, golf, and sailing are all well set up here. Dublin Airport is close by.
“There's a bower of roses near Bendemeer's stream.....” - Thomas Moore.
The name of this property has been very well chosen by the first owners. Bendamir appears on ancient maps of Persia as a river which flows through the ruins of Chilminar. Thomas Moore immortalised it in his Eastern Romance 'Lalla Rookh' (1817) when Zelica plays her lute and sings the ballad Bendemeer's Stream to Azim.....in later years the song was extracted from its original source and popularised by many tenors like John Mc Cormack and later Frank Patterson ......so it came to be associated with the Irish mystical landscape.
