Lord it over the rest of Dublin in this €3.75m Gothic revival mansion

Tudor Hall has been home to authors, hotel designers and even the Earl of Longford.

IF THE WALLS of Tudor Hall could talk, they’d have plenty of tales to share, thanks to the home’s many well-known former owners and residents.

The 19th century property in Monkstown has seen many creatives come and go, including Beatrice Coogan, author of The Big Wind, and David Collins, the Irish architect who designed Claridge’s in London – definite conversation starters.

If you fancy living within these storied walls, however you’ll need €3.75m for the privilege.

Spanning over 5,500 sq ft, Tudor Hall sits on half an acre in an area called The Hill, a leafy area of Monkstown peppered with similarly imposing homes. Over the years, the property has been entirely modernised and updated inside, making it the luxurious six-bed it is today. 

Upon entering, you’re greeted by two hallways: the eye-catching portico opens to an elegant outer corridor paved with flagstones, then leads to an inner hall that draws the eyes to the sweeping staircase.

Two social areas lead off the spacious entryway: to a library with an open fireplace and to an elegant drawing room that’s flooded with light thanks to a bay window that overlooks the back garden. 

This room leads to the dining room, the perfect spot for more formal meals. The ground floor is also home to a cloakroom and downstairs bathroom.

It’s clear that during renovations a lot of attention was paid to the kitchen. Its layout, colour palette and function are very much focussed on busy family life and entertaining.

Complete with an Aga, a central island and plenty of storage, the space benefits from natural light due to the French doors that lead to the south-east facing outdoor seating area.

Upstairs, the master bedroom sits on the first level, with an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes. Two more large double bedrooms and a bright family bathroom complete the first floor. 

Wander up to the second floor and you’ll find three further bedrooms and another bathroom.

The house sits on half an acre, ensuring privacy and space for keen gardeners to get creative. Tudor Hall sits back from the road, with plenty of mature trees making you feel as if you’re in the heart of the countryside.

In way of location, this home needs very little introduction. Serviced by the DART, and multiple bus routes, the city centre is less than thirty minutes away.

Add a Monkstown address, a surrounding half acre and a detached games room/garage and Tudor Hall has all the makings of a truly enviable family home.
