Fortal is a superb example of a Victorian period residence standing on mature gardens and grounds of approximately 0.4Ha (1 acre) further enhanced by the stunning sea views over the rooftops below, Dublin Bay and across to Howth. It retains all the period embellishments of the era including decorative ceiling coving, sliding sash windows and original doors as well as beautiful examples of period marble fireplaces. The property enjoys generous proportioned accommodation that extends to approximately 382 sq.m (4,112 sq.ft) over the three levels. Being double fronted, the two principal reception rooms either side of the hall are beautifully proportioned and overlook the front garden and the stunning views. The kitchen/breakfast room and morning room overlook the sunny south facing garden to the rear. Also to the side of the property is a sunroom with guest w.c., a large storage area and a workshop.
On the half landing is the family bathroom and at first floor level there are four excellent double bedrooms, two being en suite, enjoy the stunning sea views.
The spacious basement level enjoys higher than expected ceilings and incorporates a sitting room, three bedrooms, two of which are currently laid out as home offices, a bathroom and utility area. It has the added advantage of its own separate access making it very versatile as self-contained accommodation for a relative or a wonderful environment for kids to mature into teenagers with their friends.
A sweeping drive leads to the front of Fortal providing off street car parking for numerous cars. There is also a second vehicular access opening directly into the rear garden off the private road. The gardens and grounds are set out mainly in lawn bordered by high trees giving immense privacy and seclusion with the rear garden enjoying a sought after sunny south facing orientation.
