The favoured Balscadden road meanders from Howth Harbour towards the beginning of the cliff walk at the foot of Kilrock. This convenient, spectacular location is just a short walk from the nearby village and is populated by just a few special seaside homes. Seamount is a detached period Villa dating from c.1890 with wonderful sea views on three quarters of an acre of private gardens. The existing floor area is c.5,000 square feet laid out across two floors spanning the width of the site. It benefits from a desirable dual aspect with a sunny southerly orientation to the rear and views north over the sea along the northern coastline with Irelands Eye and Lambay Island's in the foreground. In the distance the hypnotic scene of the Mourne mountains is visible on a clear day while each day the sail boats and working trawlers busy themselves in and out of the harbour below. Architects covet this duel aspect as it offers optimal design creativity where sea views and natural light can become an integral part of a home. Seamount is dated and requires complete renovation throughout. In recognition of its condition, the present owners engaged Tyler Owens architects to design a project of enhancement befitting such a spectacular seaside site. Their design was granted full planning permission paving the way for its fortunate new owner to create their dream home in a choice location. Should the plans be finished as is the existing c.5,000 square feet will grow to an impressive c.7,000 square feet. Or, if an alternative design is desired the precedent is set outlining the obvious potential available here. Outside the mature gardens offer excellent privacy and a perfect south facing aspect with ample private parking for cars and boats. Balscadden is a well walked backwater location along the peninsulas shoreline. The charming village is within a short walk from home while its immediate surroundings are distinctly rural. When combined with the maritime and period architecture here it is easy to understand why Balscadden is deemed so special. "The hill of Howth for health and heather" as apt today as it was 100 years ago. The cosy charms of Howth's pretty fishing village and the raw beauty of its wild places makes for an irresistible combination only 9 miles from the city centre. Viewing available by appointment only with Conor Gallagher BER G 5,000 sq ft Full planning permission for project of enhancement to c.7,000 square feet - plans available by email Walking distance of village, harbour, Dart and bus.
