DescriptionSince 1837 Mount Salem has rested gently amid the rolling lands of South County Dublin. Consisting of 380sq.m./ 4,090sq.ft. approx. the property is welcoming rather than imposing in character.
Approached by a flight of six granite steps, the well-proportioned double fronted faé§ade centres on the front door with fan and side lights. Flanking the front door on both sides are a pair of sash windows. Upon entering the front hall there is a pair of fine reception rooms one to the left and one to the right. Currently in use as a drawing room and dining room respectively the two rooms with their graceful high ceilings and fireplaces fit the character of a fine family home.
Progressing through the home you pass under a glazed archway which reflects the design of the front door and surrounding glazing into the rear hall. If you proceed upstairs there is a landing, brightened by a skylight, which services the master bedroom with generous en suite, two large double bedrooms and a family bathroom across the rear of the house. All of the bedrooms enjoy a pleasant outlook over the enclosed sunny rear garden.
At the garden level a series of store rooms span the front of the property. Across the rear is a fourth double bedroom which is positioned beside a bathroom and to the right of the bedroom is a fifth bedroom/ office. Beside the fifth bedroom/office is a family room with glazed double doors leading though to the conservatory. The kitchen with cream painted units and an Aga completes the main rooms at this level and gives access to a hallway/ boot room and on to a W/C.
Mount Salem is a protected structure and is described on the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage as Mount Salem as an integral component of the domestic built heritage of South County Dublin, with substantial period features in place in the house this is truly a special property and viewing is required to appreciate the nature of this home.
The house sits on approx. 0.2 of an acre and to the front there is a further approx. 0.5 of an acre of gardens. The well planted grounds are a delight. Neither standing in the home or on the grounds would you believe that are in the well populated South County Dublin beside the N11 QBC and only a short walk from the Green Line LUAS.
There is development potential in the extensive front grounds subject to planning permission.
