DNG are delighted to present Crosthwaite House to the market.
The property is an imposing end of terrace double fronted Victorian residence overlooking an enclosed park with views over the town to the sea and Killiney Hill. The property is just ten minutes walk from the town centre, shopping, Sandycove dart station, the Pavilion, the new library and theater, the waterfront and yacht clubs.
No expense has been spared by the owners on a tasteful restoration of the house sympathetic to the imperial fashion of the 1860’s when Crosthwaite Park and its imposing terraces were laid out to provide the most prestigious addresses in Kingstown, particularly favoured by the professions and senior public office holders of the day; and so it is once more.
Occupying 420 sq.m/4,520 sq.ft over three stories, the house retains its original period features throughout including cornice work, magnificent marble fireplaces, ceramic handled doors and sash windows and shutters bearing original Victorian fastenings and fittings.
With a centrally located staircase naturally lit by a recently restored Turner style conservatory roof ope, the house has three exceptional reception rooms. On the first floor, an immense bay windowed formal drawing room, designed, decorated and furnished for lavish entertaining, overlooks the Park.
A well proportioned dining room and a sumptuous morning / sitting room together with a gentlemen’s library/study are found at hall door level, which is approached from outside by a flying staircase consisting of a double set of granite steps
There are six bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dressing room off the master bedroom, three bathrooms, two of which have been carefully restored incorporating original Victorian/ Edwardian fittings, a utility room and a large kitchen incorporating a unique Architect designed garden room leading out to a private and well maintained garden with birch trees, mature shrubs, flowers and a water feature beside a gazebo used by the family for al fresco dining.
A wonderful home in which to live, entertain and bring up a family, the house is also close to several excellent primary and secondary schools as well as a multiplicity of social and recreational amenities.
