WHEN ARCHITECT PAUL Brazil turned his hand to a 4.5 acre site overlooking The Curragh in 2010, he created something special: a brand new home that felt distinctly timeless.

Inside, the four-bedroom house features Belgian smoked oak flooring on the ground level, with an entrance area leading to a library and dining room on the right, a drawing room and terrace at the rear, and a utility room and kitchen on the left.

The kitchen, with its eleven-foot high ceiling, is a haven of natural light and feels like the natural heart of the home thanks to a large island and dining area.

Along with bespoke Seabury units, the kitchen includes a three-oven electric range Aga, Miele appliances and Silestone worktops.

The master bedroom has a balcony offering a lookout over the Curragh Plains, plus a walk-in shelved dressing room and a large en-suite bathroom tiled in Carrara marble. All other bedrooms have their own shower rooms en suite.
