“Vailima” on the Baily’s Ceanchor Road, nestles within its private surrounds enveloped by a variety of tall trees , hidden from view.
This is an extraordinary site of c.0.76 acres with a perfect aspect facing south. The view over Dublin Bay towards Dalkey Island and beyond is breath-taking by day and spectacular by night. The grounds are populated by a variety of colourful plants, trees and shrubs all clearly benefitting from a lifetime of gardening. Over the years this has included an orchard, a greenhouse and a vegetable garden in addition to the lawns and terrace.
Designed by Robin Walker of renowned architects Scott Tallon Walker for his parents in 1947, “Vailima” is modest with a unique warmth of character throughout its c.1764Sq.Ft (c163.9 M2).
A genuine credit to its owner, it has been maintained to perfection permitting all who view to experience a brief glimpse of a moment in times past. This is a delightful place to be.
Some original features will be cherished and retained while the scale of this property will allow expansion should more space be desired. The fortunate new owner may upgrade and enhance what exists and as neighbouring homes are two stories, the potential is obvious here.
Ceanchor Road is located off Carrickbrack on the southern slopes of the Howth peninsula. It is favoured for its splendid views, its remarkable micro-climate and its convenient access to the adjacent scenic coastal walks & hidden beaches. Equidistant from shopping at Howth & Sutton, all amenities are close to home.
Briefly comprising a hall, two reception rooms, a kitchen, 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms and a garage.
“Vailima” is a rare, precious home with one previous owner since it’s creation in 1947, a truly once in a life time opportunity.
