Warm welcomes in this immaculate luxury home by the north Dublin coastline

Karibu Sana is a traditional Swahili greeting… and the name of this Malahide four-bed.

IF THE ADDRESS of this property wasn’t revealed, many buyers would likely imagine it to be in the countryside, far from the hustle and bustle of the capital, judging by its exterior.

Karibu Sana is a red-brick family residence that sits on newly landscaped gardens of one acre. And it’s situated in one of north Dublin’s most covetable residential locations: Malahide, Co Dublin.

Extending over more than 3,700 sq ft, Karibu Sana (which loosely translated means ‘welcome’ in Swahili) has been recently upgraded. The interior flawlessly combines countryside charm and modern finishes.

The property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway, where there’s ample space for multiple cars to park. There is a large double garage to the side.

Inside, the hallway matches the grandeur of the home’s exterior, with Spanish floor tiling and a feature staircase with a gallery-style landing overhead.

To the right of the hall is the spacious living room which features a remote-controlled fireplace, two beautiful bar units/drinks cabinets and plush carpeting. A bay window to the front, two large windows to the side and double French doors to the rear ensure that every corner of the room is filled with light.

The kitchen and breakfast room sits to the rear of the property, where appliances include a ceramic hob, double oven and a new wine cooler, plus a porcelain-tiled floor.
