LOCATED ON AN elevated site overlooking Dunmore East in Co Waterford, it’s difficult to pick just one standout feature of Auskurra House.

The five-bed property boasts unrivalled sea views over Dunmore East village, Hook Head Peninsula and across to the Saltee Islands. And if you fancy a swim, you won’t even need to venture as far as the sea, because this home includes a pool, sauna and steam room on site.

Built in 2005, the accommodation spans an impressive 8,000 sq ft over three floors. The interior is bright, modern and airy, with features including bespoke joinery, solid oak window frames and African hardwood flooring.

Stepping inside at ground floor level, there is no shortage of large living spaces to enjoy. The main hall leads to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. 

Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors span the width of this room and provide access to a beautiful terrace with expansive sea and countryside views.

The kitchen is ultra modern and features high gloss units, a large breakfast bar/island and top of the range appliances. There’ll be no need for fold-out chairs if you’re a fan of hosting dinner parties, with room to seat at least eight in the dining area.

A separate lounge is on the other side of the dining area, with ample built-in storage and space for relaxing here. If you’re working from home, there’s also a separate office space.

Two feature staircases made of glass, hardwood and steel lead to the lower ground floor and the first floor – or you can hop in the lift if you prefer.

When your workout and yoga class are complete, head to the pool house for a dip in the 25ft heated pool and soak up the countryside views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Unwind in the sauna and steam room afterwards before heading back to the main house.
