DescriptionSouth End is a charming double fronted period residence which combines original period character with modern day living.
Dalkey is renowned for its unique properties and South End is no exception - driving up Knocknacree Road one could easily be unaware of its existence, however, this wonderful property which dates to c. 1880 stands proud on its secluded elevated site which offers the utmost in privacy.
More reminiscent of a country house than a home in the heart of Dalkey, crossing the threshold of this quaint and utterly charming property you will be immediately taken by the beautifully appointed accommodation.
Extending to approximately 2,475sq. Ft. At ground level, there is a bright hallway; off this is a spacious kitchen dining room with doors leading out to the rear garden. Off the kitchen there is a utility room/ boot room with a door opening out to the rear of the property. Leading down three steps from the hallway you enter a very fine drawing room with solid pitch pine floors and a feature fireplace. A guest w.c completes the accommodation at this level.
Upstairs there is a living room with a feature fireplace and Bay window with views over Dublin Bay. This room doubles as a guest bedroom, with its own ensuite bathroom. There are four other bedrooms, two doubles, the principal is ensuite. A family bathroom completes the accommodation. The property is further enhanced by off street parking and an exceptionally private South facing rear garden with a separate garden room.
The house was extended and very extensively refurbished less than ten years ago, with a new roof, wiring, plumbing and Internet cabling throughout. The hot water system was prepared for the installation of a solar panel.
The location needs little introduction - it is a gentle walk down to Dalkey town with its host of excellent amenities including specialty shops, bars, restaurants, churches and public transport links. The house has immediate access to the beautiful walks over Dalkey and Killiney Hills.
