DescriptionSan Elmo Lodge is a stunning maritime villa set amidst wonderfully private walled grounds of 0.4 acre off Torca Road and high above the sea at Killiney Bay.
The setting offers the utmost in privacy and tranquility not to mention stunning sea views. San Elmo Lodge is an exceptionally well designed dePaor home which integrates beautifully into this split- level site akin to what one might see in the Californian Hills. Minimalist and open plan in
design with floor to ceiling glass walls, engineered timber floors and dramatic sea views, an air of calm prevails throughout this cleverly paired back residence.
The first floor houses the main reception and entertainment areas - wonderfully bright with large floor to ceiling windows: open plan in design with the kitchen, dining and living room areas occupying the central section of the house with access to an enclosed terrace.
A study is hidden away behind pocket sliding doors and the tv room and guest w.c. are off the entrance hall. The elevation provides stunning views, framed through mature pines.
The lower garden level is occupied by a large principle bedroom with dressing room and superb wetroom. There are two further double bedrooms, a shower room and bathroom. The laundry and cellar/storage area are built into the natural granite outcrop.
