Situated at the water’s edge in Killiney, the three-story Dunmara home offers direct water access and a sweeping view of everything from Dalkey Island to Bray Head. Built in 1878, the 4,670-square-foot home is accented by a castellated tower and partially vine-draped façade. Seafront terraces and a walled-in courtyard garden add allure to the storybook-esque property.
Inside, an expansive drawing room with a seated bay window overlooks Killiney Bay. The adjacent dining room and alfresco terrace create an indoor-outdoor entertaining space. A breakfast room and bar connects to the kitchen, while a study and family room promise to refresh residents. Six bedrooms—which overlook the water or courtyard— provide a good night’s sleep at the end of a busy day.
Outside, the manicured grounds also feature gravel pathways, shrubbery, a full-size tennis court, a timber chalet ideal for garden entertaining, and a former boathouse that can be used as a cinema room. The home is currently on the market for around $5 million. (Inquiries: David Ashmore, email@example.com; Darragh Brady, firstname.lastname@example.org)
