DescriptionSherry FitzGerald is proud to introduce The Tunnel, a most impressive and beautifully presented detached Edwardian residence in landscaped gardens of c. 0.45 acres. Built in 1902, this stunningly appointed home was sensitively renovated and extended by its present owners just over a century later to provide 325 sqm (3,500 sqft) approx. of elegantly proportioned family accommodation.
The Tunnel occupies a pivotal setting at the corner of St.Vincent Road and Portland Road in the heart of the leafy Burnaby Estate, one of the finest and most sought after residential locations in the greater Dublin area. The delightfully landscaped and sun drenched south and west facing gardens provide an oasis of seclusion and serenity. Yet standing here it is hard to believe the south beach, DART and all the amenities of Greystones Town Centre are just a few minutes' walk away.
The wonderfully presented accommodation briefly comprises entrance porch, reception hallway, music room, drawing room, sitting room, family room, study, large kitchen / dining room, sunroom and cloakroom on the hall floor. Upstairs there is the master bedroom suite, three large double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The interior photographs show the house furnished whilst the video shows it without furnishings.
The most attractive entrance to the house is somewhat unique and features special mention in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage.
Greystones town has thrived in recent years and really is the perfect place to live, in fact having won the accolade of 'Global Most Livable Community Award' in 2008 and again in 2021! It is a special place for families with its unrivalled local amenities which include beaches, harbour / marina, and such local sports clubs as the rugby, tennis, GAA, soccer, golf, hockey and bowling clubs. There is an enviable array of eateries, boutique shops, supermarkets, cafes, cosy pubs, library, two golf courses and much more. The local primary and secondary schools are highly regarded. For those who must travel the N/M11/M50, DART, TFI bus routes and Aircoach bring the country, capital, airport, centres of business and education within easy reach.
