If only we had the money…
If you’re on the lookout for a bedroom in Dublin but like to torture yourself with houses and mansions that are out of your reach then you have come to the right place.
We have come across this Victorian Gothic mansion in Killiney, Co. Dublin, and to say it’s beautiful is a total understatement.
As seen of Daft, St. George of St. George’s Avenue is a “towered and gabled red-brick Gothic-Revival house.”
“The property is entered through solid double doors underneath the tower. The entrance lobby has a delightful encaustic ceramic tiled floor in a rich pattern.
“Double doors with glazed lead panelled glass bearing a red rose in the centre, leads with a step upward into the hall proper. This generous hallway opens to the inner hall where the main stairway is situated.
“The hall has two doorways positioned on either side, the drawing room and dining room.”
Oh, and it has a lift that will take you to the first floor as well as a service wing. Fancy.
But if you don’t fancy using the lift, “the timber staircase forms the dramatic rise to the first floor with an oratory located on the first return.”
The views from the mansion are absolutely stunning too, as it sits over Killiney Hill Road and you can see the sea from nearly every window.
However, it comes in at nearly €10 million… so you know, we won’t be buying it any time soon.
A girl can dream though.
