Property Description:

JB Kelly presents a truly unique opportunity for anyone in search of a rural retreat safe from prying eyes, yet only a 5 minute walk to Howth Village. Brackenhurst is a magnificent detached family residence and is situated on approximately 8 acres on a quiet cul-de-sac just off Nashville Rd in Howth. The site, rising to the rear and currently laid out as gardens, hobby allotments, an apiary and paddocks, is situated in arguably one of the most picturesque locations in North County Dublin. There is also a vehicular entrance to the rear opening onto Thormanby Road.

The house itself extends to approximately 225sqm and is approached by a private treelined driveway surrounded by an array of mature shrubbery and elevated flower beds. Accommodation consists of an entrance hall, living room and steps up to an elevated family room with panoramic sea views. There is also a modern kitchen with Aga oven and utility with guest WC off, dining room, master bedroom with en-suite, 3 further bedrooms, 2 of which share a Jack & Jill bathroom, and a spacious family bathroom

Located at the side of the main house are stables and at the lower end of the site are 2 large detached garages surrounded by mature flora native to the Hill of Howth. The rear of the site comprises an apiary, 2 acres of allotments and a further 2 acre field overlooking the Irish Sea. It is extremely rare to find a site this substantial yet so close to all the local services and amenities on the Howth Peninsula. Brackenhurst represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly exceptional property in a superb location.
