07th May 2019
If you fancy having a personal cinema, wine room and gym in your home, this renovated Clontarf property may be for you…
Clontarf is one of Dublin’s most affluent suburban neighbourhoods. Not only does it boast beautiful sea views, but there is also St Anne’s Park, Clontarf golf course and a warm, village atmosphere to boot.
If you’d like to make Clontarf your home, have a look at this luxurious property available to buy right now.
Located at 17 Vernon Avenue in Clontarf, Ormond Hall has been lovingly refurbished and restored by its current owners. It dates back to the 1800s; when it was originally built and owned by the same family who lived in Clontarf Castle.

Today, it is a luxuriously modern home; boasting features such as a home cinema and a hi-tech security system, to name but two.
To enter the property, new owners must climb a flight of granite steps; passing through the front door to an elegant (and spacious) entrance hallway.
From here, pass through to the formal drawing room which has been tastefully decorated in grey and silver tones. This room comes with a feature fireplace, a large bay window (allowing for lots of natural light), wood panelling and an overhead chandelier.
Then, directly across the hall from the drawing room, there is a spacious home office with mahogany parquet flooring. While it’s convenient for anyone who works or studies from home, it could also be easily transformed into an additional living area.
Back in the hallway, there is access to a large guest bathroom, pantry, storage room, as well as a bright kitchen-cum-diner.
The kitchen could be described as the heart of this Clontarf home. The light-filled room boasts oak-trunk floors, a hand-painted Design House kitchen and access to the garden via double patio doors.
Estate agents Coldwell Banker say it is, “a dream kitchen for an aspiring chef; with a 1.1-metre natural gas stove, including professional wok burner and two built-in wall ovens (ideal for special occasions)”.
What’s more, it comes with a host of other improvements; such as plate-warming drawers, a breakfast and coffee bar area, and the convenience of two full-sized, Sub-Zero fridge/freezer units.
The kitchen also offers plenty of seating; including a sofa area with a large TV point, built-in shelf units, as well as a luxurious feature gas fireplace.
This period property has five double bedrooms; three of which are located on the first floor (and two of which have walk-in wardrobes, both plumbed for easy conversion to en-suites if desired by the new owners).
Meanwhile, the master suite is positioned on the top floor; offering beautiful views of Howth Head. It comes with lots of storage and a walk-in wardrobe; as well as a stylish en-suite bathroom with stand-alone rain shower.
On the ground floor, a double guest bedroom comes with built-in wardrobes and a roomy guest bathroom.
On the ground floor, new owners can make use of a custom-built cinema room; perfect for cosy nights in or children’s sleepovers.
This home-cinema is connected to the wine room; which features a 130-bottle, in-built, subzero wine fridge; two refrigeration units for storing beer, spirits and champagne; as well as a snack bar and dishwasher.
Also on this level, new owners can work out in the home gym, which was designed and installed by Fittr in Wicklow. It includes a full-sized Hammer Strength HD rack and a dual adjustable pulley station; as well as free weights, a stationary bicycle and an open area for core training.
Estate agents at Coldwell Banker say, “Professional-grade rubberised flooring has also been fitted into this spacious and well-mirrored space”.
The rear garden is the perfect place for summer entertaining; with built-in external lighting and speakers; two BBQ areas with a piped-gas fire table, and a play area for kids.
There is also a large shed for gardening equipment and storing outdoor furniture, as well as three raised vegetable beds for home-growing. Not only that, a 10-camera ADT security system and iron gates are installed for added safety.
At €3.25 million, this Clontarf home is far from cheap. Perhaps it’s time to play the lottery…
