HISTORY OF PROPERTY

"Windgate House" was originally built in c.1935. This magnificent home is one of the best examples of the art deco style in Ireland, with the site carefully selected for its panoramic sea views of Dublin Bay. A separate 2 bedroom house was built onto the main house in 1984 which can be used separately or connected back to the main house. The design of Windgate is based on 1930's German art deco architectural styles. There is a separate Chalet and Wendy house.

Windgate House is accessed by a sweeping driveway with dual entrance gates to Windgate Road.
