IT’S NOT OFTEN that a redbrick five-bedroom house in one of South Dublin’s most sought-after, suburban neighbourhoods comes to the market with such pristine, contemporary design throughout.

Extending over 402 square metres (4,327 square feet), the spacious house uses bay windows, high ceilings, a triple-aspect kitchen/dining/family room and a series of roof lights to create a home that’s bathed in natural light.

The house is on sale for €2.5 million.

The front door opens to a large, triple-height entrance hallway with a feature oak-treaded staircase, striking atrium ceiling of nine metres and roof light designed to fill the home in natural light. The hall is flanked by two reception rooms with bay windows on either side.

From the hallway, wide steps lead down to an extremely spacious open-plan, triple-aspect kitchen/dining/family room with 3.25m ceiling height, which opens onto a beautifully landscaped rear garden.

One of the house’s unique features is a sprawling 50 square metre attic, ideal for an au pair’s accommodation, a home office, teenagers’ den or a play area for the kids. The attic looks onto the hall atrium and features two large roof lights.
