A house by the sea.
Situated half way up Howth Hill, commanding spectacular views from an amazing vantage point, this RIBA award winning unique residence was designed by O'Donnell and Tuomey Architects who took inspiration from various elements of the outstanding setting. Upon initially entering this property you are greeted with truly outstanding views of Irelands Eye filling the landscape as you walk into the central living area and the hall. The various rooms crop different views from the huge panoramic outlook encompassing Dublin Bay and Howth Harbour giving every room a unique viewing experience that enhances the quality of character of The Boat House. The use of robust materials and the use of colours are central to the feel of the house, the presence of curved walls coloured with grey pigmented lime wash reference the Martello Tower on Irelands Eye and in the harbour. Internally the accommodation flows well, connecting seamlessly internally as well as with the outside world. The accommodation offers a wide variety of spaces that may be used in different ways throughout the occupant's residency without the need for alterations.
One enters the main accommodation at the raised ground floor level. The main living room is split level with floor to ceiling windows and access to a balcony overlooking the harbour. The kitchen / dining room may be accessed from this room. The kitchen is fully stocked with floor mounted presses with a Smeg four ring gas hob and oven with integrated fridge freezer with single touch soft close cupboards. The patio area in the rear garden is accessed from here.
The rear of the property is a cosy sitting room, an ideal location to wind down to enjoy the peace and serenity of the location ...
