Description“Galtee Lodge” is a modern contemporary home extending to an impressive c.366 M2/c.4000 Sq.Ft over two levels.
This splendid home was designed by David Craig, Dublin Design Studio Architects to take full advantage of the breath-taking views from this elevated site.
The site rises from front to rear by a full storey presenting the opportunity to create a unique two-storey home with two ground floors, both connecting directly to adjoining gardens. Respecting the sites topography and its surrounding context, this home has been set into the sloping site, allowing two storeys to be presented to the front and a single storey to the rear. This design strategy was adopted to allow the main living spaces, situated at the upper level, to open directly out onto a large sunny private garden to the South and also enjoy the generous terrace which has the benefit of the spectacular views to the front.
A generously proportioned open plan kitchen-living-dining space provides the main event at this level. This dual aspect space is filled with natural day light always and is equally impressive as night falls when the surrounding village and streetscape lights up. With high-level clerestory windows and a vaulted ceiling, uninterrupted panoramic views towards Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Islands complement this part of the home. Large sliding doors allow the main living spaces to spill out onto the large terrace to the front and the extensive use of frameless glass balustrades enhances this space without obstructing views.
A separate more intimate family room shares a double-fronted log burning stove with the main living space and also gains access to the large terrace. The double-height master bedroom suite is located next to this room on the same level with access to its own private terrace. By locating the family bedrooms and the recreation room in a staggered arrangement at street level, the scale of the house is softened. Each of the five family bedrooms opens directly to the outside to enjoy the spectacular views.
The reception hall features a bespoke curved glass and steel stair case within a walnut panelled hall complemented by ambient lighting by night and natural light by day from the clerestory glazing above. Natural walnut and oak deliver texture and style combining a warmth of character rarely found in a home of such scale.
A rated for energy efficiency, ensures a low level of energy consumption. This was achieved through the use of high levels of insulation and particular attention to air-tightness allowing the internal environment of this large space to be kept comfortable with a minor heat load. The solar water heating is cost-effective. Finished to a suitably impressive standard throughout, the kitchen is a triumph of design while the adjoining utility space is conveniently nearby.
Great design cannot be over-rated. This over-sized home is proof that generous spaces can be effortless, comfortable and calming to live in.
Imperative viewing to fully appreciate the unique opportunity to acquire a home of considerable appeal.
Asgard Road is a mature cul de sac situated just above Howth village and harbour with all of the wonderful amenities and services that this unique maritime address has to offer.
