On the southern slopes of the Howth peninsula, the five contemporary-style split-level homes that make up Cluain Aedin are tiered on a hillside site at a lower level to Carrickbrack Road, which affords each property views across Dublin Bay.
The houses in the Sutton gated development, which is located beside Howth Golf Club, were designed in 2008 by architect Orla FitzGerald, who was a founding member of O'Mahony Pike Architects before setting up her own practice. After the recovery from the property crash, the site and its designs were sold to a developer. Cluain Aedin was released in 2016, but a receiver was appointed to the developer. Weslin New Homes has since finished off the scheme, which has just been relaunched with a refitted showhouse by Suzanne Walton Design.
The development consists of five four-bed detached homes, one of which is reserved. Prices range from €1.35m for the single 2,508-sq ft home to €1.55m apiece for the other larger properties, which each span 3,329 sq ft.
Each house sits on its own half-acre plot, complete with a gravelled driveway large enough for several cars.
Inside, there is an American-style layout, with large open-plan spaces, extra-high ceilings, large picture windows, and several roof windows. The contemporary-style kitchen was designed by Longford-based Reilly Brothers and is fitted with integrated Siemens appliances. There are feature fireplaces to the entrance hall, sitting room and dining room.
Viewings are by appointment.
