Description

Villa Belvedere has been painstakingly refurbished and extended to an exemplary standard and represents what can only be described as a spectacular home with the finest of sea views over Dublin Bay. Dating back to c. 1850 this unique home provides 218 sq. m./2,350 sq. ft. of well laid out living accommodation arranged over two floors and bathed in natural light throughout. There is a perfect balance between living and bedroom accommodation with original features such as fireplaces, mahogany panelled doors & ceiling roses/cornice plasterwork having been reinstated, combining Victorian charm with modern day conveniences. Without doubt the pièce de résistance of this wonderful home are the spell binding sea views after which the house is named, enjoyed not only from the principle accommodation but also from the terraces and balconies, ensuring that the "beautiful sights" can be appreciated as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

Glazed door opens into the entrance porch which leads into the entrance hall with wainscot panelling, celing cornicing and rose. To the right of the hall is the living room with feature oriel bay window encapsulating the majestical sea view, there is an 18th century white Carrara marble fireplace with gas coal effect fire, ornate ceiling rose and cornicing. To the left of the hall is the dining room and kitchen, the dining room is to the front of the property again enjoying the wonderful sea vista and with a Regency French Carrara white marble fireplace with matching cast iron grate. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke timber cabinetry hand painted in sage, the floor and wall mounted units are complemented by white marble countertops, a black Aga, and integrated appliances, there is an Italian marble tiled floor. At the end of the hall we arrive at the drawing room with English Victorian white marble fireplace with matching cast iron dog grate, ceiling rose and cornicing. From the drawing room French doors framed by a window either side open out to the rear courtyard and its immersive rockery. Also on the ground floor is a guest wc with original Hammond "of Dublin" toilet.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms. The main bedroom with a French Rocco rouge marble fireplace and has the advantage of an ensuite shower room, there is a window framing the bay and a door leading out to the balcony overlooking the sea providing an ideal haven for morning reading. The second bedroom also has the benefit of a balcony overlooking the sea. The second and third bedrooms are served by a large ‘Jack and Jill' shower room with twin wash hand basins. On the mezzanine galleried landing is the fourth bedroom.

The gardens to the front of the property are laid out in a formal style with a lawned area bordered by topiary hedging and flower beds stocked with mature shrubs and plants. There is a delightful paved terrace providing unobstructed commanding views of the bay and an idyllic space to enjoy ‘Al Fresco' dining. A side entrance leads to the rear of Villa Belvedere, at ground level there is a paved courtyard area with fireplace providing the ambience of an outside living room. Granite steps ascend past naturalistically landscaped raised beds to the upper terrace where evening sunshine and panoramic views are to be enjoyed.

Vico Road is one of Dublin's most exclusive coastal addresses and is understandably often compared with the Italian Riviera and has deservedly earned the reputation as Ireland's Amalfi Coast. It is therefore no surprise that it has become the chosen location for many of the world's pop stars,
actors, authors, film producers, and racing drivers.

Conveniently located within 10mins walking distance to Dalkey village where an outstanding selection of speciality shops, bijou restaurants and shopping facilities are to be found. For recreational amenities Killiney Hill, Killiney Golf Club and Sorrento Park are all nearby. An abundance of picturesque coastal and beach walks are literally on the doorstep. Some of South County Dublin's most prestigious schools are within close proximity to include The Harold, St Patrick's National School, Holy Child, Loreto Abbey Dalkey and St Joseph of Cluny. The villages of Killiney & Dalkey are well served by public transport links with Dublin Bus and the DART providing easy access to the City Centre. The Aircoach also stops at the nearby Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and on Castle Street in Dalkey. The M50 and all main arterial routes are also within easy reach.

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.
