Karen Mulvaney of Coldwell Banker is proud to present to market the most exquisite home in the heart of Clontarf. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a truly unique family home. This immaculate residence has been painstakingly restored and refurbished to the highest standard and the attention to detail is second to none.
Ormond Hall was the original house on the road dating back to the 1800's, built and owned by the Vernon family who lived in Clontarf Castle.
Clontarf needs little introduction as an ideal place to live in Dublin. Living on Vernon Avenue offers residents an eclectic mix of amenities and eateries right on their doorstep but also the calm and privacy of low density neighbourhoods. A quick stroll to the end of the road and you are on the beautiful Clontarf promenade with its sea walks, green spaces and cycle track accessing all of Dublin Bay.
