The Dalkey Home Behind This Gate Is Straight Out Of Your Dreams

Where would you live if you won the EuroMillions? Oh sure, you'd get the obligatory villa in Spain or somewhere equally paradisal, but you'd also want somewhere closer to home. We'd probably go for somewhere like this.

Located on Barnwell Road in Dalkey, Dunross is a three-storey family home hidden away behind electronic wooden gates. It dates back to the 1930s but more recent extensions have increased to the floor area to a spacious 335 sq m.

Here's a rundown of the home's many rooms: entrance hall, interconnecting library, dining, and drawing room, super Pogenpohl kitchen, utility and guest w.c., four large double bedrooms (three of which are en-suite), a family bathroom, family room, home gym, three basement storage areas, a home office, and a large double-height entertainment room.

The house's entertainment area boasts an unusual vaulted shape, based on an idea by a super yacht designer rather than an architect. Yeah, that's the kind of house this is.

The house isn't the only attraction. Behind that large front gate is one-quarter acre of gardens and a cobble driveway. The main garden is private haven surrounded by mature hedging.

And from the windows of the houses upper floors, you've a stunning view of the nearby sea.

Smitten? All you need to own a place like this is a little determination, a dollop of elbow grease, and approximately €1,900,000 in cold hard cash.
