On the first floor the spacious drawing room extends the full width of the house and allows one to gaze out at the ever changing vista.

The property is said to have been built by the Smith Family who were suppliers of granite for the construction of Dun Laoghaire Harbour and who leased the lands along the seafront in the early 1800’s including the site on which 9 Newtownmith was built. The Smith family were also developers and built many of the homes in the area and their name has lived on in the place name Newtownsmith. At the time of construction the houses faced directly out across the road to a rocky foreshore much like that further on at Scotsmans Bay but over time the lands were reclaimed to provide amenity space. The house was fully complete by the early 1860’s.
