SITTING AT THE end of a long paved driveway and surrounded by a mature treeline, Falconwood House is an eye-catching property even on first glance – but it’s inside that the four-bedroom home really comes to life.

Inside, a foyer feature a sweeping custom-made staircase in dark wood sets the tone for the house, with backlit onyx panelling and Italian-sourced feature lighting throughout.

The eclectic palette continues as you move further into this boldly designed home, with a mix of solid oak and granite floors, 3D wall features and mirrored panelling in the ground floor areas.


Accommodation on the ground level includes a living room with an inset fireplace, a lounge area, an open plan kitchen/dining area, an office and a guest bedroom – but the star feature is definitely the vast leisure room.

As well as the items one might expect to find in a fitness room of this calibre – gym equipment, a shower area and a sauna – the room also features a large Jacuzzi and a resistance swimming pool for at-home training. Double doors open from the leisure room to the rear garden.


For entertainment that’ll never be hampered by the Irish weather, there’s an enclosed garden space outside with its own barbecue – though upstairs also features a large balcony terrace with landing access, for relaxing on during sunnier days.


Sleeping accommodation upstairs comprises three large double bedrooms, with a master en-suite bathroom and a main family bathroom featuring fossilised granite finishings.


The property is set on a site of 1.3 acres, with outdoor feature lighting, a secure gated entrance and a remote-controlled double garage for storage or parking. Brittas sits right on the Dublin-Wicklow border, enjoying a tranquil rural location that’s also just 45 minutes drivetime from the city centre.

Falconwood House is on sale for €995,000 with DNG Tallaght via Daft.ie. Private viewing is available by appointment.
