THERE ARE SEA VIEWS, and then there are Sorrento Road sea views. Driving toward Mount Alverno, it’s easy to see why the stretch of coastal road from Dalkey Village upward to Killiney Hill is often referred to as Dublin’s ‘Riviera’.

This five-bedroom mansion enjoys a secluded location between Sorrento Road and Nerano Road, and shares an access point with three other homes: Monte Alverno, Kilross House and Kilross Cottage. The latter two are owned by Van Morrison and Eddie Irvine, so you’ll be in good company.

Every effort has been made to ensure the design of this vast, split-level property blends seamlessly with the natural landscape.

The lower level exterior of the house is constructed from imported Portuguese granite, a perfect complement to the existing natural granite outcrop that frames the 7,050 square foot site.

Inside, the rooms have been designed to take full advantage of the coastal location, with views over Dublin Bay and Dalkey Island from many points within the house. There’s also a beautiful outdoor terrace and dining area to the front.

On the ground floor, a lengthy entrance hall leads to four generous bedrooms. Each of these has an en-suite bathroom, with an additional dressing room and guest living room.

Access to the first floor is by staircase or lift, where a landing opens onto a long dining area with a recessed atrium window spanning the length of the room.
