Property Description

Sherry FitzGerald is proud to introduce Knockrath, a stunning detached family residence of gracious splendor set in delightful secluded gardens in this wonderful location in the heart of Greystones and every wonderful amenity the town is renowned for.
Dating from 1893 this stunning Victorian residence extends to a generous 460 sq. m/ 4,951 sq ft approx., including the former Montessori school. There is a wonderful balance between the formal reception rooms, family living spaces, bedroom and ancillary accommodation. The principal rooms are beautifully proportioned, perfect for both entertaining on a grand scale and more intimate every day family living. This home has been lovingly maintained by the same family for the past 25 years and original character, charm and period features are preserved in almost every respect. These included high ceilings with decorative ceiling plasterwork, magnificent marble chimney pieces, timber window shutters, clay tiles and pitch pine windows, doors, staircase, floors and even the original service bells in the kitchen.
An outer porch leads to a light infused entrance hallway with magnificent hand carved staircase dated 1893 sets the tone as one enters. The splendid drawing, dining and family rooms immediately adjoin one another off the left side of the hall. The back hall also gives access to the family room and two cloakrooms. A separate inner hall leads to the kitchen and its ancillary areas, the former Montessori and the morning room over- looking the front garden. Upstairs the bedroom accommodation is approached by two wings from a spacious landing with elegant archways.
The house is approached through wrought-iron gates along a sweeping tarmacadam driveway which skirts the front lawn before sub dividing to the front and rear of the house to the courtyard containing the former stables, garage and outbuildings. To the rear there is also a large garden mainly in lawn. The entire is bordered and interspersed with an assortment of wonderful mature timber and shrubberies.
Knockrath features in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage and is described, we quote, as a detached multiple-bay-two-storey rendered with molded quoins house. The front door has a segmental arch head. To the north is a two-storey projecting gable bay which in turn has a canted single storey bay. To the south is a square single storey bay. Windows above the entrance have segmental arch heads but otherwise are flat-headed; all have one over one sash frames; some have molded surrounds. Overhanging eaves with decorative bargeboards to the pitched and slated roof. The house is set within a large garden, well set back from the road behind plain wrought-iron railings with slim carved square granite posts with rounded pyramidal caps.
The location is just second to none! Greystones is a wonderful place especially for families. Voted World s most livable community in 2008, it boasts an enviable array of sporting and leisure facilities for adults and children alike. These include the local Rugby, GAA, Soccer, Tennis, Bowling and sailing clubs, Shoreline indoor swimming pool and fitness centre, blue flag beach, new harbor, marina and much more. There are three golf clubs within striking distance at Greystones, Delgany and Charlesland in addition to Druids Glen, Bray and Powerscourt to name but a few. The many local primary and secondary schools also have excellent reputations and there are churches for all main denominations. The town has a comprehensive range of renowned eateries, cafes, cozy pubs, specialist and boutique shops, supermarkets, organic food shops and delicatessens. For those who must venture beyond all Greystones has to offer the N11/M50 is just minutes away as is the DART/Mainline rail station together with the 84,84x and 184 bus routes to Dublin city, major centres of employment and the Aircoach to Dublin airport.
