  • Property Details

    A charming Victorian residence in mature grounds, situated in this much sought after location walking distance from Enniskerry village, while enjoying a tranquil countryside aspect and wonderful views.Dating from approximately 1860, Oakview House was once part of Kilgarron House, which was built for the daughter of a previous Lord Powerscourt and subsequently used as a Dower House of Powerscourt. The house which has not been on the open market for over 40 years, comes with an interesting history. Having once been home to the famous writer Frederick Forsyth, a subsequent owner split the property and created two separate homes, naming the second residence as Oakview which remains today. This very private, bright and spacious residence contains all the charm and features of the Victorian Period such as cornice work, centre roses, high ceilings and large windows overlooking the beautiful countryside and wonderful mature and maintained gardens.The accommodation extends to 239.5 sq.m (2578 sq.ft). The ground floor comprises of drawing room, with a large picture window overlooking the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains and a decorative fireplace. Double doors lead to the dining room with French windows leading to the garden and terrace areas. Both rooms provide ample space for grand entertaining. Also on the ground floor is a large country style kitchen with oil fired Rayburn range and many fitted cupboards. An opening leads to the family room or ‘snug’, a cozy room ideal for relaxing beside a large wood-burning stove. A downstairs lavatory and utility room completes the accommodation on this level.Upstairs there are four large bedrooms and walk-in hot press which are accessed off an elegant hallway. Three of these bedrooms are ensuite and the master has a wonderful dual aspect with magnificent views over the countryside. A large attic runs the length and width of the house, provides ample storage.The gardens of Oakview are spectacular and the current owner has created wonderful well -stocked herbaceous borders, a large lawn and productive vegetable garden.
