DescriptionSummerhill is a detached and very private family home with bright and spacious accommodation over 3 floors. The property is on an elevated site with commanding southerly views of Dublin Bay and south county coastline. The property is in excellent condition and has the benefit of planning permission to extend the existing accommodation to the side and rear if required. There are generously proportioned bedrooms and a number of bathrooms and a feature is the large paved terrace area to the front to make the most of the wonderful southerly aspect ensuring maximum levels of afternoon and evening sunshine and designed to make the most of this marine vista. A superb entertaining and relaxing area. The large attic room is currently used as a games room and has Velux cabrios to the front, which turn from a window to a balcony to further enjoy the views.
The landscaped gardens are laid out in tiers of lawn amidst mature plants A sweeping driveway leads you up to the property away from prying eyes and there is a large double garage with electric door.
Watch the merchant ships and ferries glide in to and out of Dublin Port, and the flotilla of pleasure craft sail out from Dunlaoighre. The views at night with twinkling lights from across the bay are just as mesmerising.
