Living On the Edge
CLIFFTOPS is an apt name for an eagle's nest abode on the foot of the Three Rock Mountain in Dublin's Sandyford from where you can see Wales on a clear day.
The unusually high elevated position near a rocky drop-off means an entire vista of Dublin city and the bay from the striped stacks of Pigeon House to Howth Head is opened up to you from the garden and many of the key rooms inside. Planning usually limits home construction from this height up.
The gardens stretch to just under a half-acre; there are five bedrooms and a converted attic (currently used as a study) making Clifftops perfect for a large family. Two of the bedrooms are en suite and the master bedroom also has its own dressing room.
Downstairs it has an L-shaped kitchen and breakfast room with timber units and a polished granite work surface.
There's also a living room/dining room, a study, TV room and a family room. The BER is D2.
And if you fancy a pint, you're a stroll away from the famous Blue Light pub where Irish music sessions are a tradition and you might bump into regulars Bono and Adam Clayton – the latter recently held his wedding day lunch at the venue.
