Designed by award winning Architect, Stephen Nelson and John Duffy Design Group this contemporary and elegant home is a roomy 8000 sq feet and is set on circa. one acre. The split level design provides magnificent, unrivalled sea views over Dunmore East Village, Hook Head Peninsula and as far as the Saltee Islands.
Built in 2005 the house design incorporates local traditional architectural features with the use of natural slate & cedar wood soffits, limestone & sandstone, together with rendered external wall finishes, but all with a tasteful contemporary twist.

All the joinery is bespoke, including grand floor to ceiling height doors on the ground floor living areas. The windows are solid oak custom made in Austria. The flooring throughout is Maribu, an African Hardwood which provides an additional departure from the norm.
