ENJOYING UNRIVALLED SEA views on the north side of Dublin sits Howth Lodge, a property dating back to the mid 1800s, and home to a collection of luxury apartments that overlook Claremont Beach.

Originally used as the summer home of the British viceroy in Ireland, many may remember the hotel that sat in its place before it was reimagined almost twenty years ago.

One apartment within, 26 Howth Lodge, is now on the market for €1.25m. The property comprises of three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a living room and kitchen/dining room spread across almost 2000 sq ft.

Making up most of the ground floor, the apartment enjoys high ceilings, crystal chandeliers and period touches in keeping with this listed building’s bygone era.

Herringbone floors and pristine coving in the living room are nods to the property’s rich history, too. Upgraded in function, yet traditional in aesthetic, the double glazed sash windows keep the heat in and further add to the building’s original era.

There’s no shortage of storage in the galley-style kitchen, and it’s bright too, due to the large sash window. The light that pours in is enhanced by the use of white for the floor and work surfaces.

Although the apartment boasts three bedrooms, the smallest of the lot has taken on the role of home office for now.

The remaining two double bedrooms come complete with an en suite bathroom each, as well as plenty of storage and lots of light.

On great days, the terrace, leading from folding French doors is the perfect place to look out over Dublin Bay.

It’s not just this apartment’s proximity to the beach, the period design within and the upgraded features that make this an envy-inducing home, either. Howth village is just a walk away, so residents can enjoy some seafood in a harbour bar or restaurant in minutes flat.

26 Howth Lodge, Howth, Dublin 13 is on sale for €1,250,000 from Gallagher Quigley via Daft.ie.
