A Room With A View And A €10m Price Tag To Match

Drumleck House on Ceanchor Road has come to market under the baton of local auctioneers Gallagher Quigley. Currently owned by Feargal Naughton of Glen Dimplex, it has been home to Neil and Sandra Wilson, John and Gertrude Hunt and has hosted  Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Arden and Peggy Rockefeller. Drumleck is the second high profile property on Ceanchor Road to come to market recently, the other being the former residence of the Guinness family, Ceanchor House and which we understand is still under negotiation – aka up for sale. 

In keeping with the latter, Drumleck is as the bumpf professeses, “a self-contained garden of Eden” and boasts 740sq m (8,000sq ft) Ber-exempt living space, which sits on 4 hectares, or 10 acres and was built in the 1830s and updated by every successive owner.

Laid out in a C shape, the entrance hall has a 26ft ceiling, Waterford Crystal chandelier and chequerboard floor. Two formal connected reception rooms to the left look over the lawn sweeping down to a rocky bluff that was dynamited by a previous owner for a better view of the sea. Next to the reception rooms is a west-facing dining room where you could easily entertain 20 people.

On the other side of the hall are a large kitchen with a cherry-red Aga and a breakfast room that looks through the garden, salvaged Georgian columns framing the Poolbeg chimneys, across Dublin Bay. Off the kitchen is a corridor to an outside two-storey building housing staff quarters, storage rooms and wine cellar.
