SEAFIELD HOUSE

DONABATE, COUNTY DUBLIN, IRELAND

An attractive mid-18th Century mansion, built circa 1730. Magically positioned
within some 80 acres or 32 hectares on the shores of Malahide Estuary, on the
periphery of Dublin city and within a 15 minute
drive of Dublin International airport.

Enjoying an idyllic position within glorious private grounds the water views
over Malahide Estuary are exceptional and the mature Victorian designed
gardens and stone outbuildings include a magnificent walled garden, a Yew Walk
and an attractive cut-stone enclosed stable yard. In use as a private
residence but possibly suitable for alternative use(s), subject to any
necessary consents.

Accommodation within the house extends to some 10,000 square feet or 929
square metres and includes 5 principal reception rooms and 8 principal
bedrooms. A gate lodge and studio apartment in the stable yard provide further
accommodation.

Tranquil country living this close to a bustling and vibrant Capital City and
its International airport is truly remarkable. Seafield House benefits from a
south facing aspect. The large portico is bathed in sunshine during clement
weather and provides protected vista€TM over the estuary, with a backdrop of
the Dublin Mountains. The €Yew Walk€TMis thought to have been inspired by one
at the Duke of Devonshire€TM Lismore Castle (county Waterford). The stable
yard provides good garaging and stabling. There are ample pleasure walks
within the estate and good pasture grazing for horses.
A small slipway provides access to the estuary. The maritime village of
Malahide is about 5 away (by boat) and hosts numerous traditional pubs, wine
bars, artisan cafes and seafood restaurants.
Dating to circa 1730 the original Georgian design of the classical Palladian
villa style is attributed to the renowned architect Sir Edward Lovett Pearce.
Notable designs by him including the original Irish Houses of Parliament.

At the height of fashionable Victoriana, circa 1855, Seafield House was
remodelled, with the extensive works including the adding of the €West Wing€TM
including the striking 5-storey Italianate tower, and the completion of the
extensive stable yard with clock tower.

A comprehensive restoration was completed circa 1996. Whilst listed as a
Protected Structure some sympathetic changes may be permitted. Some commercial
use(s) and extensions or conversions may also be considered.

The reception hall is beautifully executed and original to the Georgian
Palladian design. Two storey€TM in height and running the full depth of the
house it is crossed by a gallery at first floor level and features decorative
timberwork, pilasters and ornate window and door architraves. The principal
reception rooms are suitably opulent yet are of a scale to be comfortable. The
tower extends over 5 floors to a viewing roof terrace, which has dramatic
views over the estuary to the Dublin Mountains and Malahide village. The lower
ground floor opens at ground level to the rear of the house. Upstairs the
Master Bedroom Suite runs the entire depth of the eastern faé§ade of the house
and includes a large south facing bedroom, a bathroom and a dressing room.
There are 7 further principal bedrooms, 5 having their own bathroom or shower
room and 2 sharing a large family bathroom. The Gate Lodge and Studio
Apartment complete the accommodation.

There are 5 golf courses nearby and water sports are popular in the area.
There are marinas, yacht clubs and sailing clubs. There are numerous walking
trails in the area and equestrians are well catered for. The Donabate village
train station, a 5 minute drive from Seafield House, provides regular commuter
services to Dublin€TM city centre and a rail service to Belfast city. The
local area has important wildlife conservation areas.

This calculator is for illustrative and guidance purposes only and is not an offer of a loan. The amount you can borrow will depend on your individual circumstances and is subject to lending criteria, terms and conditions. Your mortgage may be subject to loan to value or loan to income limits and these limits may vary. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business variable rate at the end of the fixed period.

APRC calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. For Buy to Let, APRC includes a fee for the Banks solicitor of €950 plus VAT at 23% plus outlay of up to €350.

Principal Dwelling Homes: The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary. A typical mortgage of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. [The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home].

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP YOUR REPAYMENTS YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME.

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE REPAYMENTS ON YOUR LOAN, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL GO INTO ARREARS. THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR CREDIT RATING, WHICH MAY LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS CREDIT IN THE FUTURE.
