From the hills to the sea - you can have it all with this beautiful Skerries house

And it’s only 40 minutes from Dublin city centre.

FOR A SMALL coastal town north of Dublin city, Skerries has got a lot going for it.

It’s on the train line so it’s a mere 40 minutes into the big smoke, plus it’s right on the sea so you can wake to the sound of the waves if you’re lucky.

The house is located on three-quarters of an acre of land with views over the limestone cliffs of Milverton Quarry and the countryside.

Situated on Togher Hill, there are panoramic views of the countryside. The town itself is a third of a mile away and it’s a ten-minute walk to the train station, making it perfect for commuters.

Entering the property through the double-height reception hall, potential buyers will find a cloakroom and a guest bathroom.

The kitchen is south/west facing and so gets light long into the evening.

Out in the south-facing landscaped garden there’s an Indian sandstone patio to avail of all that sun.

There’s even a large double garage which has been converted to a music/art studio.
