The Mediterranean-inspired home was built around an interior courtyard.

HOUSES DON’T HAVE to be old to be distinguished. Demarco was just a plot of land on Killiney Hill before the current highly luxurious bungalow dwelling was constructed in the second half of the last century.

It’s now a strikingly contemporary one-storey home with an extensive site in one of the most sought-after areas of the capital.

One of the most interesting features of the bungalow is the open-air internal atrium that the entire house surrounds, with large floor-to-ceiling windows creating further light throughout the home.

Along with the atrium, there is a large raised patio area that extends around the lounge,dining and kitchen areas, with southwestern sun and all-round privacy.

At the entrance of the bungalow, there’s a bright entrance hall with ebony timber floor, which also features in many of the living areas. The hall leads into the bright, spacious lounge which has triple-aspect windows looking out onto the gardens.
