MORNINGS AT BRAMLEY Hill – situated in Dublin’s coastal town of Howth – must be quite a treat.

The house, which is on the market for €3,500,000, has breathtaking views of Dublin Bay, and the perfect deck from which to enjoy them.

It’s not just the panoramic vista of the bay that you get with this house, though it’s certainly one of the main draws.

The impressive architect-designed property was built in 2000, so it’s crammed full of modern features.

The focus when designing contemporary homes tends to be in getting as much light as possible into the building, and that was clearly the mindset of the architects here.

Large windows and double-doors work with the house’s neutral palette in keeping it light and bright inside.

Bramley Hill is located on a private road which is shared by a small number of other properties.
