A spectacular curved and glass walled hillside sanctuary. An architectural masterpiece in Killiney, perched at the top of Killiney Hill Road with arguably the best south facing site and panoramic views.
Approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway the spectacular approx. 1.3 acre of grounds provides the most amazing setting for this unique family home. The dramatic curved design, built circa 2005 and designed by architects Conroy Crow & Kelly has maximised the potential in terms of light, space and views. This masterpiece features three levels of glass fronted accommodation and terraces creating a living experience that infuses warm and inviting family living in a truly contemporary setting.
The main house extends to approx. 1,000 sq m / 10,691 sq ft and briefly comprises six reception rooms, five en suite bedrooms and a host of ancillary accommodation. In addition, there are approximately 2,000 square feet of terraces which are accessed from each of the three levels. The private and secluded grounds are a real feature of the property with the large infinity swimming providing a dramatic focal point.
Approached through bespoke double entranced gates, a sweeping gravelled driveway leads to the carparking forecourt with attractive granite cobble lock finish. The main house is perfectly positioned on the 1.3 acre site to maximise the views and to take full advantage of the southerly orientation. The private grounds have extensive planting, structure and form with various terrace areas. The landscape design has taken full advantage and cleverly integrated the gradient of the site. The garden centrepiece is the large infinity swimming pool which occupies the prime position that can be enjoyed from the garden and the house simultaneously. The large patio and terrace areas all face South and are thoroughly enjoyed and accessed by all living and bedroom accommodation. Undoubtedly, the golf practice area is a fun and serious addition to the property, with the focus on improving your putting and bunker play. The practice area is a bespoke design and made by Huxley consisting of a 6 hole putting course based on famous golfing greens. The deceptively spacious garage includes double entrance doors and electronic lift parking system that can accommodate 4 cars. Finally, a distinctive, architecturally detached structure in the lower part of the garden incorporates the bright and airy gym area with shower facilities.
