LAID OUT OVER three levels and located in the much sought-after area of Mount Prospect Avenue in Clontarf, take one step through the gates of no 65 and it’s clear that this is no run-of-the-mill detached four-bed.

Spread over 6,254 sq ft, this modern family home has every high-level finish you might expect from a home built in 2007.  Features like underfloor heating and Carlson windows and doors throughout, contribute to a B3 energy rating.

Look around further and you’ll discover space and amenities that would suit the constant entertainer. Now on the market for €2,750,000, any host would want to make good use of this lavish, Celtic Tiger-era home.

The hub of this home is undoubtedly the kitchen. A hand-painted design by Alan Browne with an island unit and granite worktops anchors the space. 

Off the kitchen sits a separate utility room – a godsend in many homes for keeping the kitchen clutter and laundry-free.

Limestone floors unite the open plan area creating a natural flow from one space to the sun room. Double doors lead outside from this light-drenched space. 

To the side sits a dining space with large rooms and more double doors that also lead to the outdoor area

From the hallway, the eye-catching staircase leads to the first floor and its four large double bedrooms.

The master suite puts you in the lap of luxury with its large en suite shower room and not one, but two, walk-in dressing rooms. Even better news is that the specifications of the other bedrooms aren’t too different. Jacuzzi baths, heated towel rails, and large wet rooms ensure the en-suite bathrooms are far more than mere functional spaces.

Wander down to the basement and you’re confronted with a full bar that even has a dance floor. A games rooms, a cinema room, and a gym with shower facilities and sauna, along with two guest toilets, complete the space.

Oak finishes cover the floors, and lighting and TV points are carefully considered. Stock up well and the basement is a self-contained and independent space in itself.

In terms of privacy, no 65 is a gated property that’s accessed through electronic gates. A gravel drive leads to the front door where there’s space for up to six cars.

The back garden faces south and is home to a water feature, two block-built sheds and a granite tiled seating area that mimics an amphitheatre.
