Savills is delighted to present Palermo, a spectacular period residence located on sought after Killiney Hill Road, with breath-taking views across the sea and towards Bray head.
Palermo is approached through a pair of smart black pillars and down a sweeping drive with space to park numerous vehicles. The drive continues down to a pebbled terrace / parking area which has access to the garage with wooden double roller doors to the front. The pebbled terrace has raised flower borders and space for pots and garden furniture. The entrance is fitted with a video surveillance system for driving on to Killiney Hill. There is a path leading across the front of the house and towards a lower store area with three separate coal sheds and a useful garden store shed. There are steps descending to the lower ground floor level and a door with access to the property.
The rear gardens are quite a size and benefit from some wonderful sea views. There is a paved terrace to the top with a variety of mature shrubs scattered within it and steps leading to the main terraced gardens. The majority of the outside space is lawned and has been terraced with pathways to the left and the right. There is a magnificent mature border to the rear, packed full of shape and colour. The pathways continue to the very rear of the plot with steps and a gate providing rear pedestrian access to Strathmore Road. There is a Victorian greenhouse with a mature grape vine and a water tap.
Large wooden double gates leading to the main driveway, attractive raised flower and shrub border, access to numerous store rooms as well as an outside WC, former Lion house' and outdoor viewing cage, beautiful steeple and weather-vane.
The main access to Palermo is from Killiney Hill Road, with pedestrian exit onto Strathmore Road. There is a five minute walk to the beach and eight minutes to Killiney DART Station. The beautiful historic village of Dalkey with many artisan shops and restaurants is approximately one mile from the house.
This spacious home benefits from many charming features to include high ceilings, impressive fireplaces, original cornices and working shutters. Property of this calibre demands gardens to match and Palermo stands on a wonderful mature plot with terraced rear gardens packed full of life and colour. There are also substantial detached outbuildings to include an excellent
mews house with comfortable self-contained living accommodation.
An interesting feature of Palermo is a decorative pagoda-shaped steeple with a weather-vane which has an H symbol cut into its metal, representing the Hone family, who were one of the former owners of the property. The Hones were related to the famous Irish Artist, Nathaniel Hone.
