JB proudly presents Kilcarrig to the market. This handsome detached period home is set in a spectacular location on the Howth Peninsula and enjoys breath taking views across the Irish Sea towards Ireland's Eye, Lambay and beyond. Approached by a winding driveway, Kilcarrig stands proudly on an acre of meticulously maintained grounds which are stocked with a colourful array of mature ornamental trees, shrubs and flowering plants. Its superb, elevated position not only ensures it enjoys stunning unobstructed sea and island views but has a degree of privacy not shared by other houses in this area. The windows in the principal reception rooms to the front of the house perfectly frame Ireland's Eye and the ever-changing sea views. Ireland's Eye is home to a large variety of seabirds, guillemots and fulmars, all of which can be observed from this amazing vantage point. The current owners have been meticulous caretakers of their home which is rich in original features that seamlessly blend with the timeless modern upgrades that have been carried out. Constructed in 1894 and reconfigured and extended in 1986, all period features remain intact and in pristine condition. Ground floor accommodation comprises 4 gracious reception rooms, 3 of which are interconnected, a guest WC, kitchen/breakfast room, study and a utility room. On the first floor are 5 large bedrooms including master en-suite and dressing room, a family bathroom and separate study/single bedroom. Kilcarrig is an approximate five minute walk to Howth Harbour where there is an abundance of seafood restaurants, shops and bars to be found. Howth is well served by public transport with DART and bus providing convenient access to the city centre. The area hosts a wide range of recreational facilities including sailing, golf and coastal walks. Properties of this calibre rarely come to the market making viewing of this enviable period home a must for the discerning purchaser.
