Three waterfront Raheny homes left
Howth Road, Raheny, Dublin 5
If you have the funds for an upmarket seaside address on Dublin Bay, this development of four five-bed detached houses perched on the corner of Howth Road and Kilbarrack Road junction should fit the bill.
Three of the four architect-designed homes that make up this development are still on the market.
Number 3, Kilbarrack Road, which was priced at €850,000, has already been sold, but the show house at No 822 Howth Road, which can be bought with or without furnishings, is available at €975,000.
Number 4, Kilbarrack Road costs €895,000. The largest house is the corner unit, the 2,961 sq ft No 824 Howth Road, which has 323 sq ft more space than the other three and costs €1.1m.
The homes' A3 energy ratings come from solar panels, an A-rated gas boiler and heat recovery system.
The three-storey waterfront homes were designed by Mark Turpin of Donnelly Turpin, a Dublin-based architectural firm, to be filled by natural light - a feature window juts out to the front of the first floor and there are triple-glazed skylight windows in the second-floor bedrooms and bathrooms.
He made the most of the views with floor-to-ceiling windows in the kitchen/dining/living room.
The facades contrast a contemporary black and white render with blue-black Spanish slate roofs. Inside, a grand entrance hall lends a sense of space. To the right of the hallway is a staircase with wood-turned banisters, which leads to a striking open landing with a reading/study area.
Each of the properties, which are located between Clontarf and Sutton, and just minutes away from Howth Village, have a large kitchen/dining/family area on the ground floor, with French doors leading out to a paved patio and manicured gardens with shrubbery and trees.
There is also a utility room, a separate living room and a guest WC on the ground floor. The first floor has three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, while the top floor has the remaining two bedrooms, both of which are ensuite.
The contemporary Hacker Classic Art kitchens, imported from Germany, are at the rear of the houses. The design is a mix of dark wood and cream, with a long island and integrated Electrolux/Siemens appliances. The sitting rooms have a wood-burning stove and a limestone or granite fireplace. The exteriors are complemented by natural timber fencing and cobble-lock driveways.
