IF YOU’VE ALWAYS dreamed of living by the sea, Greenvale might just be the perfect property for you.

Located right on the beachfront at Holmpatrick in Skerries, the five-bed home is seconds from the sea and boasts views over Skerries South Strand and Shenick Island.

The exterior is an eye-catching teal, while the front garden comprises a manicured lawn, making for the ideal spot to sit and soak up the views.

Inside, the accommodation is bright and spacious throughout its 2,820 sq ft. Stained glass double doors open to the main hallway, which features attractive checkerboard tiled flooring. 

The sitting room is to the right, with a large bay window flooding the space with light and providing picturesque sea views. There’s an antique marble fireplace in here, as well as the original ceiling cornices and centre rose.

The dining room is a warm and inviting space, with two large west facing windows, high ceilings and tongue and groove flooring. This room is currently used as a dining and living hybrid area, but could easily be transformed into just a dining room for hosting guests.

Moving through to the rear of the house, the kitchen and living area is split level. The kitchen is charming, with an AGA set in brick surround, a Belfast sink and granite worktops.

Sliding patio doors open from the living area to the west-facing rear garden, which features old stone walls and is designed for dining al fresco on the patio area.

All five bedrooms are located on the first floor, with four of them benefitting from their own en suite bathroom. The master bedroom is to the front of the house and enjoys sea views from the bay windows. Directly across the hall is the study, which is currently in use as a dressing room.

Greenvale is a convenient 10-minute walk along the coast from Skerries town centre and all of its restaurants, cafes and shops, while the DART station can be reached in 20 minutes. 

Sea swimmers won’t be stuck for choice when it comes to taking a dip close to home, either, meaning you’ll be able to go from the cold Irish Sea to sitting by the fire in minutes. 

Greenvale, South Strand, Skerries, Co Dublin is on the market for €930,000 through Kelly & Co via Daft.ie.
