IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a property unlike anything else on the market – and if you don’t mind taking on a big project – The Grove in Killiney, south Dublin will tick the boxes.

With 27 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms and spanning a massive 16,041 sq ft, the period mansion  offers no shortage of space. And get ready to wake up to beautiful views across Killiney Bay and out toward Bray Head.

The high number of rooms may make more sense when you consider that the property was once in use as a nursing home, and that a 17-bedroom extension was added in the mid 1970s. The main house was built circa 1840, and itself includes 10 bedrooms.

After making your way up the tree-lined avenue, you’ll find period details like bay windows, arched entryways and ornate finishes throughout the property.

Picture windows flood The Grove with natural light, making each room feel (even more) spacious and airy. Other features include a mahogany fireplace, an intricately carved oak fireplace, stained glass detailing and a sun terrace for al fresco dining.

Taking a quick walk through of the ground floor of the property, there’s a grand staircase in the hall, with the dining room to the left. From here, there’s a large commercial kitchen, making it easy to entertain and serve guests. 

To the right of the hallway is another living area – the morning room – with access to the conservatory, and two interconnecting drawing rooms. Beyond here is another reception room.

In the original part of the house, there are 10 bedrooms across the first and second floors, with eight of these boasting views of Killiney Beach and across Bray Head.

There are a further 17 bedrooms across the property and the extension, 15 of which have en-suite bathrooms. Future owners may wish to remove the extension entirely, making the property a lower-maintenance asset.

Moving down to the basement, there’s a boiler room, laundry room, staff kitchen and additional bathroom.

Outside, the property sits on two acres of mature elevated grounds with a variety of trees throughout, including chestnut, walnut and eucalyptus. For long evenings spent outdoors, there’s a patio area, courtyard and walled garden.

If you’re looking for even more room, there’s full planning permission for a five-bedroom detached house spanning 3,143 sq ft within the walled garden.

Both Killiney Beach and Killiney Hill Park are within walking distance of the property, as is Killiney village – meaning you’ll never be far from sea swims, restaurants, bars, shops and cafes.

The Grove has the potential to be a grand residence for the right owner, and the seaside location is one thing that won’t need any changing at all.

The Grove, Killiney Hill Road, Killiney, south Dublin is on the market for €4,500,000 through Hooke & MacDonald via Daft.ie.
