APPROACHED BY A generous driveway filled with hedges and shrubs, Ard na Greine is a breathtaking sight from the front. Plus, a wander around the back presents you with more natural delights: a south facing garden that stretches out to a large lawn.

On half an acre and commanding sea views, this light-drenched Dalkey home is now on the market for €2,450,000, with six bedrooms for that price.

Timber floors contrast with bright white ceiling coving and light grey walls to show off the light that’s welcomed into the home. A guest WC and under-stair storage make the most of the space.

Doors to the side lead to the two lounges that are connected to a family room and ground floor shower room.

A walk to the end of the hall presents a spacious pantry and kitchen, pristine in finish and connected to a separate dining room and utility room.

Built-in and freestanding appliances combine to provide the right amount of clean lines, yet the space isn’t void of character. The straight lines of the timber floors are mirrored in the crisp white planked ceiling, adding further rhyme and reason to the space.

Every back room of Ard na Greine has access to the sun trapped patio that leads on to the lush lawn.

The dining room is off to the side, a layout that offers privacy from neighbouring homes. Yet this doesn’t stop light from flooding the space thanks to well-positioned windows overhead and along the length of the back wall.

The elegant reception rooms embrace the original fabric of this house. A bay window with stained glass details reflects and absorbs the light, beautifully.

Open fireplaces with marble hearths sit in each of the lounges making a cosy winter retreat. However, high ceilings, timber flooring and large windows keep things from being claustrophobic.

The family room with its orangery-style ceiling and access to the back garden makes for a good summer room option. And, if casual entertaining is on the cards, then built-in cabinets provide perfect storage for any quick clean ups before guests arrive.

On the DART line, by the sea and home to many celebrity faces, the village of Dalkey needs very little introduction.

Throw in an abundance of schools and amenities in the surrounding areas of Dún Laoghaire, Killiney and Monkstown and Ard na Greine makes for a pretty superb suburban family home by the sea.

Ard Na Greine, Ardeevin Road, Dalkey, Co Dublin is on sale for €2,450,000 through DNG Dun Laoghaire via
