DescriptionBuilt in 1999 to exacting standards, this particularly charming home is in immaculate condition throughout its spacious c.3,040 Sq. Ft (c282.7 sq m.).
Occupying an extraordinary site surrounded by a blanket of aged trees ‘Kermanac’h’ enjoys unrivalled seclusion within its own quiet boundaries, a perfect balance of privacy and convenience with neighbours and a village nearby.
Balkill Road is just below the Summit of the Howth Peninsula. It leads down to the bustling harbour and vibrant village below and naturally local scenic walks and all amenities are within easy reach of home.
Electronic gates open into an elevated driveway with ample parking for residents and their guests. The house sits in the centre of its site, above its entrance. It is two stories of equal scale and double fronted with smartly appointed accommodation on either side of the hall and landing. Outside, the decorative window shutters give a sense of the ‘French influence’ that is continued inside. Hardwood timber floors laid on solid concrete feature in the 3 principle reception rooms. On the left a well-proportioned reception room (currently a study), on the right the main living room featuring a fireplace and double doors to the formal dining room behind. Beyond is the over-sized kitchen, living and dining space spanning the width of the property across the rear and featuring a double height space complemented by curved glazing. This space is filled with natural sunlight while there is generous utility and storage areas provided off the kitchen.
A wide staircase leads to upstairs, where the ‘gallery’ landing offers a pleasant reading space while the luxurious main bedroom overlooks the rear garden from its private balcony. Four large double bedrooms, three ensuite shower rooms and a main family bathroom complete the accommodation on this level.
“Kermanac’h” is a discreet hidden home of remarkable quality and charm. Viewing is imperative to fully appreciate the unique opportunity to acquire this truly special residence. Viewing is available by appointment with Gallagher Quigley.
