If you regularly pass up and down the Knockmaroon Hill between Chapelizod and Castleknock, chances are you'll have wondered what lies behind the mysterious gates pictured below.
Wonder no more because the gaff is now on the market and we can reveal just what you'd be getting for the cool €1,295,000 you'd be paying for the property.
The home, known as 'Sunnyslopes' boasts the most incredible panoramic views over the Liffey Valley and the Dublin Mountains. The Edwardian style family home lies smack bang in the middle of Castleknock and Chapelizod villages and is adjacent to the Phoenix Park.
Looking out the front (or back?... we can't really tell), you are greeted by the sights and sounds of the River Liffey as it flows towards town as well as the Dublin Mountains looking over the south of the city. Imagine sitting here on a summer's day and watching the world pass by in front of you.
The home is described in its Daft ad, which can be read in full here, as:
"A perfect balance of bedroom and living accommodation with two elegant reception rooms that are inter connecting, a particularly inviting country style kitchen/breakfast room complete with solid fuel stove, a sunroom overlooking the gardens, balanced by four bedrooms and generous bathroom facilities. There are also two large attic rooms that could be used for a variety of uses measuring an additional 46 sq. m. approx."

We suppose there's a teeny tiny chance we'll win the Lotto one day but for now we'll just have to make do with looking at the photos.
