The Old Rectory represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a most elegant two storey over garden level Victorian residence of immense style and character enjoying an envious position on Lower South Strand in the heart of this charming and historic North Dublin town.
A landmark property once occupied by James Hans Hamilton, the local Landlord later to be commemorated by the Hamilton Monument in Skerries, The Old Rectory enjoys the most spectacular views of Shenick Island, Church Island and, of course, Rockabill Island. This property also enjoys pedestrian access (across a small pathway) to the wonderful sandy beach and picturesque coast line. Is located in a prestigious and sought after residential location opposite Skerries Rugby Club.
Approached by imposing stone steps the Victorian entrance porch leads to an impressive reception hall with feature staircase providing access to each of its three floors. There are two wonderful reception rooms on this level each enjoying many fine architectural embellishments of its era including magnificent fireplaces and high ceilings with ornate covings. The dining room to the rear enjoys spectacular views across the beach to Skerries Islands. There is also a large cloakroom off the hallway. On the upper floor, there are four spacious bedrooms together with family bathroom and the views from the rear bedroom, in particular, are spectacular. The garden level can also be accessed from the front of the rectory and benefits from an equally impressive hallway leading to a large family room at the front and fine oak fitted kitchen to the rear. There is also a spacious utility room and access to the private walled garden.
The garden areas add great character to this historic property and the front graveled garden is bounded with typical wrought iron railings and strategically positioned shrubs and plants. The rear split level garden is mainly paved and bounded by attractive stone walls with pedestrian access to the wonderful sandy beach. There is also a large private side garden with newly laid lawn and patio area.
