Peek into this luxurious five-bed at the foothills of the Dublin mountains

The views are to die for.


YOU DON’T EXPECT to find a house at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains that looks just like this.

But Granville, a five-bed house on the market for €1.29m, is a modern dream home with incredible views, lots of space, and a very contemporary design.

The outside of the house doesn’t quite show off how much space there is within – but a look around the gardens shows that this home offers a lot of space.

Unusually, the bedrooms are on the ground level, so that the living areas upstairs take full advantage of the great views to the mountains, city and sea beyond.

With a grey palette throughout, splashes of colour create areas of interest – like paintings, stained glass windows, and stand-out furniture.

The light tones mean that the house feels spacious and bright, with a kitchen and living space that feel calm and soothing.

The downstairs area comprises a glazed atrium, master bedroom and double bedroom – both with en-suites – three double bedrooms and bathroom.

Surrounding all of these outside the home are the landscaped gardens, which can also be accessed from the master bedroom, and which get the sun all day long.

Located far enough from the city to really feel like a country retreat, this home is also near enough to the M50 to ensure you don’t feel isolated.
