Discover the allure of Lisnacarrig, a truly unique residence situated among the privileged few who enjoy direct access to the sea in South County Dublin. Nestled in the picturesque coastal town of Dalkey, Lisnacarrig is one of only 54 homes with direct shorefront access that offers an extraordinary backdrop of Dalkey Island with The Muglins and Kish lighthouse in the distance. Originally constructed in the 1970’s, Lisnacarrig underwent a transformative redesign and extension approximately 30 years ago under the visionary supervision of renowned architect Robin Mandal. Exhibited in the RIAI Annual Awards in 1998, the result is a home that seamlessly integrates with its coastal surroundings, ensuring breathtaking panoramic 180 degree sea views across to Howth, over Dalkey Sound and Dalkey Island from nearly every room in the house. As you approach Lisnacarrig, a driveway welcomes you with ample off street gravelled car parking surrounded by mature shrubbery and immense privacy with a striking view across to Dalkey Island. The entrance hall sets the tone for the home, featuring a cloakroom/guest w.c. with stairs leading to the heart of the residence. The kitchen/breakfast room off the hall is elevated and directly overlooks the bright and airy living space, while the generous open-plan living room with dining area has stairs leading down to the Robin Mandal inspired lower sitting room with unparalleled panoramic views over Howth, Dalkey Sound and Dalkey Island. Access from this level leads to the rear garden which comprises a decked balcony with steps down to a lower patio that directly accesses the seafront creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living. Dalkey Island offers a natural windbreak from high seas and strong winds. The upper floors house two bedrooms, with the main bedroom featuring an en suite bathroom and a wonderful seating/viewing area. Additionally, Lisnacarrig offers ancillary family accommodation. This area comprises a kitchen, a sitting room, a dining room, and a bedroom with an en suite bathroom. It is directly integrated with the main property and offers potential subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission. Lisnacarrig invites you to experience the epitome of seaside living. With its unique design, breathtaking views, and exclusive location, this home stands as a testament to timeless elegance and a connection to the natural beauty that surrounds it. Dalkey is one of South County Dublin' s most sought after and highly desirable, coastal, suburban addresses and it' s easy to see why with its wide selection of specialist and boutique shops, restaurants, pubs and local facilities. There are also a wide selection of leisure and recreational activities in the immediate area such as the tranquil maritime scenic walks along Coliemore Road, Vico Road and over KIlliney and Dalkey Hills. Boats from Coliemore Harbour ferry the adventurous across to Dalkey Island to explore its obvious beauty, vibrant wildlife, and the historic Martello Tower.
