DescriptionIsland View is undoubtedly one of the nicest seafront residences to come to the market this year. Nicely positioned within this small gated enclave of 6 detached homes, Island View occupies a superb waterfront position and the 6 homes benefit from exclusive access to a private harbour along with neighbouring Rocklands.
The property is beautifully presented and has been tastefully staged to make the most if its waterside setting - drawing inspiration from the coastal surroundings of Dalkey, neutral calming tones, organic greens and chalky blues were enlisted throughout the property which brings harmony to its enduring features and the unspoilt sea views.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of living in Island View is the proximity to the sea, in the summer you can clearly hear the sound of boats zipping past or, canoeists chatting as they head over to Dalkey Island. Then of course there is the sound of the waves lapping off the rocks below.
The accommodation extends to 174 sq. m but there is obvious potential to go up into the enormous attic space and increase the overall floor area, subject to the necessary planning. A set of double front doors open into a welcoming L-shaped hallway with guest w.c.. The kitchen/dining and principal reception areas look out to sea and enjoy access to a timber deck, they in turn link through to the double height sitting room/snug - all of which make entertaining at home a must.
The four bedrooms to the rear are currently used as three bedrooms and a study, the main bedroom enjoys a walk in wardrobe and ensuite shower room - the two further bedrooms are well serviced with a family bathroom and separate shower/wet room.
The property is ready for immediate occupation and will appeal to both empty nesters and the family market alike due to its secure and private location within walking distance of Dalkey's main street.
The location itself needs little introduction, situated in the heart of Dalkey and just a stroll from Bullock Harbour, Coliemore Harbour and the DART, it couldn't be more convenient. Dalkey offers a host of excellent amenities including its specialty shops, host of restaurants, churches and some of the town's most enjoyable and scenic walks. There is also a selection of excellent schools including Loreto Abbey, Harolds Boys, Castlepark School, Rathdown and St. Joseph of Cluny.
To the front of the property is a spacious cobblelock area with car parking for two cars. There is a very useful lean-to to the right handside which provides valuable additional storage and direct access to the private south facing garden. This garden enjoys a sunny orientation and is easily accessed from the house. The main lawn runs down to the coast and is bounded by granite walls with direct access to the foreshore which is part of the property title. There is right of way to the harbour at Rocklands next door which the houses in Beulah Court enjoy.
