PERCHED ATOP AN elevated site of 1.25 acres in Howth, Dublin, is Bayview House.

Bayview House is approached via a sweeping driveway, with splayed granite steps leading to the main entrance door. Oak flooring covers the reception hallway.

There’s ample space at Bayview – 8,867 sq ft of it, to be exact. As well as that, there are Dublin Bay views (as the name suggests) from many of the rooms.

From here, there is access to the formal dining room and drawing room, which boasts an ornate mahogany and marble fireplace.

A picture window looks out from the drawing room into the sunroom, which extends to the length of the living room.

Continuing onward to the kitchen, there’s no shortage of storage space with solid cherry wall and floor units, a centre island and a black granite worktop with plenty of room for preparing meals. Appliances include a Miele cooker, hob and microwave.

The open-plan dining area in the kitchen is perfectly positioned to soak up the first class views.

In the west wing of the house on this floor is the master bedroom, complete with solid cherry wardrobes and presses, an en-suite bathroom and separate dressing room. There are three bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, a Jack and Jill shared bathroom and a family bathroom also on this floor.

In addition, there is a large south-facing conservatory with double doors leading to a paved patio area, complete with a barbecue for summer dining in the sun.

A stairwell off the main hallway gives way to the lower ground floor, where there’s an impressive entertainment room, which features a half-moon shaped oak bar. A chilled wine cooler is located in the storage room on this floor, with a laundry room here too. 

There are two double bedrooms on the lower ground floor, each with an en-suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes. Double doors bring you out onto a large open deck area, meaning you’re never far from the picturesque views of the capital.

If guests fancy taking a dip, they won’t have to brave the cold seas of Howth and can instead enjoy a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, located just off the function room.

Built into the eaves of the building is a large split level mezzanine, with one area used as a gym and the other as a home office. Velux windows fill the space with light, while there is also a storage area and en-suite bathroom on this floor for further convenience. 

Outside, hedges and trees provide privacy, and there’s a pond and feature waterfall on the grounds too.
