TUCKED AWAY ON an elevated site in Howth, Dublin 13, Hill Cottage is a one-of-a-kind property.

The three-bed house has been rebuilt and redesigned by its current owners, transforming the former artisan home into a modern and deceptively spacious residence of 1,414 sq ft.

Stepping inside, the front door opens to the open-plan living and dining space. This room enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to its south-facing orientation, while high ceilings add to the airy feel.

There’s a large feature fireplace with a brick surround in here, making for the ideal spot to cosy up in front of. A neat bedroom and a separate study are accessed off the open plan space, while three steps lead to the kitchen.
