Wake up to sea views from this breathtaking cliff-top home in Howth

The €1.5m property is perched right on the Howth Peninsula.

BEFORE EVEN LOOKING inside the door of 23 Balscadden Road, it’s clear the property is a winner.

Poised on a cliff-edge on the Howth Peninsula with panoramic views over the Irish Sea towards Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island, this family home enjoys possibly one of the best east coast views around.

That view has been incorporated into many elements of the property’s design, from the wraparound balcony on the entrance level, to the living room terrace, to the glass-walled sun lounge and the large windows at the rear of the house.

Inside, the main living areas are on ground level, with sleeping accommodation on the floor below.

Unlike many below-ground designs though, as the house is built into the slanted cliff face, there is an abundance of natural light throughout.

The entrance level features an expansive bright tiled entrance hall, a large living room leading to a terrace overlooking Puck’s Rock and Devil’s Rock, a kitchen, a sun room opening onto a patio, a dining room and a lounge.

Despite its secluded location, the house is within walking distance of Howth village and its many amenities, including shops, bars, restaurants and DART and bus links. It’s also a 35-minute drive from Dublin city centre.
