If you’ve ever passed through the seaside village of Killiney in Co Dublin, you’ll likely be familiar with Camelot. With its turret, archway and rounded brickwork, this is a truly memorable property.
The three-bed home on Victoria Road was constructed in 1853 by Robert Warren as a gate lodge to three properties; Victoria Castle (now Ayesha Castle), Mount Eagle and Mount Mapas Cottage. Warren owned Killiney Hill and much of the village at the time.
Camelot is a protected structure and features an original circular cut castellated tower with lancet windows and an archway which stretches over Victoria Road.
Measuring 1,655 sq ft, including an extension to the rear, the house offers beautiful views over Killiney Beach, Bray Head and the Sugar Loaf.
Inside, the accommodation spans three floors and is a smart-looking modern home. The interior has been carefully curated, with a mixture of contemporary and antique finishes.
The main living area is a bright and inviting space, with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors, plus access to an attractive balcony with sea views. The kitchen is located just off the living room, with grey Shaker-style units here.
A newly fitted wet room has been installed on this floor, with a spacious walk-in shower. Double doors lead from the hallway to the circular dining hall, where an eye-catching granite staircase gives access to the first floor.
On the first floor, a studio/home office is in the round tower. A large circular roof window floods the space with nature light, and makes for a good spot to work or read.
The master bedroom is on this level, with a large en suite bathroom with a jacuzzi and corner shower, plus a sliding glass door onto a balcony with picturesque views.
At lower garden level, there are two further bedrooms and a shower room. The lower section of the circular tower acts as a storage room/wine cellar, while there’s access to a courtyard from the hallway. One of the bedrooms opens to the south-facing patio and 36m-long garden.
The gardens at Camelot are rich in mature trees and shrubbery, with high granite walls adding to the sense of privacy. The heart of Killiney is a quick five-minute stroll away, while Dalkey can be reached in 20 minutes. Designated off-street parking is available, if needed.
A one-of-a-kind property, Camelot offers a unique and charming place to call ‘home’.
