Capilano is a massive, 6,000 sq ft three-storey house on a hillside overlooking the whole city skyline at Ticknock Road, Dublin 18.

No opportunity to take advantage of this vista - from Howth to Dun Laoghaire - has been left unexploited. And there's even a full bar, where you can swallow a few martinis and cultivate a bit of attitude with your altitude.

It was built in the 1960s and a refurbishment in 2007 included raising the upper floor, so as to make even better use of the house's vantage point.

On the lower ground floor are the entrance hall and a basement games room, as well as a downstairs toilet. The upper ground floor contains the 'secondary' living room, which opens onto the upper garden, and two bedrooms.

The 'main' living room on this floor, the one with the bar, is around 40 feet by 25 and has wall-to-wall windows and an open fire.

The kitchen - or kitchens - are also on this level. There's the main kitchen, with the eating area and the views, and a secondary kitchen off it for concentrated cooking.

There's also a dining room on the upper ground floor, with room to seat about 12 people, and with patio doors to the garden.

The first-floor houses the master bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite with a marble floor. Three more bedrooms, two en suite, can also be found on this level.

A door on the first-floor landing gives access to a huge rooftop patio which the selling agents estimate at about 1,000 square feet, and which includes the obligatory hot tub.

It's on about two-and-a-half acres of gardens. The lower part is a flattish lawn, while the upper part is sloped, and there's a disused tennis court at the top.
