Karnak, Killincarrick Road, Greystones, Co Wicklow





Karnak is a home of true distinction situated within the leafy Burnaby Estate on Killincarrig Road, a wide leafy road, host to the most charming row of Victorian terraced houses, standing tall behind meticulously clipped hedges and wrought iron gates.

Karnak is ideally positioned, overlooking Burnaby Park a beautiful recreational park bordered by low lying stone walls and mature trees, where many walk their dog, kick a ball or simply rest on the park benches.

To describe this location as convenient is an understatement. There is no other residential road in Greystones that stakes claim to being within the closest reach of the Greystones Dart station, with the beach and main street itself a mere stroll away.

Deceptively spacious, this fine example of a period home (built circa 1895) will overwhelm the most discerning of buyer. Once through the hall door, it is inevitable, one will experience an ambience of grandeur and opulence with old world (representative of its grand old age) features such as high ceilings, extensive wall panelling, detailed architraves, ceiling roses, coving and built in radiator covers.  It is worth mentioning that neighbouring houses on the terrace have added impressive, modern extensions setting somewhat of a precedent for remodelling and expansion.

An impressive archway leads through to the inner hallway showcasing the original hardwood staircase. The elegant well-proportioned drawing room oozes sophistication with feature cast iron fireplace and plush curtains draped generously over large sash windows. The living room, also of generous proportions, offers up more of a casual feel, a nice contrast to the formality of the front room. Upstairs over two levels, spacious bedrooms and high specification bathrooms can be found off light filled landings.

Greystones needs little introduction as the seaside town was recently awarded a LIVCOM 2021 Gold medal award for being the most liveable community in the world. A stunning place to live, located between sea and mountain, renowned for its sea swimming culture, state of the art Marina, lush forests and hiking trails – all within a 45 minute commute to Dublin.
