RINN RUA, 4 CLAREMONT GROVE
UNIQUE PROPERTY OVERLOOKING KILLINEY HILL
Churches Estate Agents are proud to present this stunning opportunity to acquire a prime property tucked away in one of Killiney\’s most exclusive locations. Set just meters away from the base of Killiney Hill Park, Claremont Grove is a small private road of just five properties. Rinn Rua takes prime position on the crest of a hill with sweeping views of the lush side of Killiney Hill, with the KIlliney Obelisk square in direct view of the house. From this vantage point you have a glimpse of sea views out over Dun Laoghaire and a peek at the Poolbeg towers and Dublin Bay all from the property.
Rinn Rua sits on a 0.2 acre plot up a private shared laneway. Entering the site there is an ample gravel drive and a private garage. The grounds slope towards Killiney Hill with the house itself perched on the higher west side of the plot. The house itself measures 138 sq m (1485 sq ft) all on a single level.
Entering the property up a step of steps to the porch we enter a fine, wide corridor (6.9m x 1.7m) running the length of the house. To the right you enter the fabulous living room (6.5m x 4.9m). From the front of the living room there is a vast picture window which floods the room with light and takes in phenomenal views of Killiney Hill and the surrounding countryside. A sliding double door steps out onto a rear porch and from here there are clear views north over Dublin city centre. The living room features a quality dark-wood floor and open fireplace. Leading behind the fireplace there is an additional dining room area (3m x 4.9m) with window and service-window through to the kitchen.
The spacious kitchen (4.7m x 3m) is situated at the west-end rear of the building. A U-shaped fitted units includes new appliances, large north facing window and set of sliding doors onto the west-facing garden patio area. The paved patio includes a wonderful historic granite stone wall along its length. There is also a substantial boiler house (containing oil-fired boiler and tank) which could also serve as a utility room and laundry.
To the South-West side of the house there are three large double bedrooms, each with new carpet and fitted wardrobes. Each also has fantastic views towards Killiney Obelisk, especially the large master bedroom (4m x 3.4m) at the front of the house which has a giant picture window taking in the entire hillside. At the back of the house is a large main bathroom (2.5m x 1.85m) which includes bath, walk-in shower, basin and wc. The hallway also includes two hot presses.
Outside the majority of the garden is to the South of the house, with mature lawn bounded by an old stone wall, elevated above the road. This could become a private enclave and when used to its full potential a sun-soaked haven set in magnificent hillside surroundings.
This property presents a unique opportunity to create a fabulous home on a large and rare site in a stunning location in Killiney. The possibilities with the house are only limited by your creativity. Taking in those fantastic views and using the full extent of this wonderful raised 0.2 acre site, the right owner could create an incredible property in keeping with other prime examples in the area.
The location speaks for itself. Less than 5 minutes walk to the entrance to Killiney Hill Park and a ten minute brisk walk to the top. Killiney or Dalkey DART stations are both approx. 20 minutes walk, while excellent local amenities include The Druid’s Chair and Fitzpatrick Castle on your doorstep. Barely farther afield is Killiney Beach and Killiney Golf Club, each less than 5 minutes drive. While local villages of Dalkey, Glasthule and Dun Laoghaire provide everything else you could need. Access to the N11 or M50 can be made in less than 15 minutes.
This property is a great example of a lifestyle location. Enjoy the local scenery and amenities in a truly one-of-a-kind home.
