LOCATED IN HOWTH, Dublin 13, Kenure is a strikingly beautiful property, from its architecture to its interior.

On the market for a sweet €1,650,000 through JB Kelly, the three-bed property was built in 2013. Inside, the design is contemporary, with plenty of traditional touches.

Positioned on the Howth Road at the entrance to Howth village, the house boasts an almost-seaside location, with Burrow Beach just a 10-minute walk away. No need to battle for a parking space on sunny summer days.

The property is set back from the road and is accessed by electronic gates, with a gravel driveway providing parking for several cars. There is an array of greenery in the front garden, including beech, silver birch and tree ferns, which create a lovely sense of privacy for the rooms to the front of the house.

A great first impression is made as soon as you step through the front door, with a decorative arch and extra high ceilings in the entrance hallway. Many of the rooms at Kenure are painted a stone blue, which both creates a sense of calm and complements its coastal location.

A large living room is located off the hallway, with a more classical feel in here. Two large bay windows fill the room with natural light, while a marble fireplace and walnut flooring add a warm feel.

A beautiful set of double doors with a fanlight overhead lead to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. This room is perfect for entertaining, with ample seating space, a south-facing aspect and double doors to the rear garden.

A wood-burning stove is ideally located in the living area to add warmth to the space on cold winter days. Providing further storage, a utility room is located off the kitchen.

The most impressive element of Kenure, perhaps, is the back garden. It measures approximately one third of an acre, features a sizeable manicured lawn and has a gravel pathway which leads to a block-built storage shed.

There’s also a greenhouse, meaning the new owners can grow their own produce year-round, while the patio is perfectly located to take advantage of the south-facing aspect. Those with a green thumb are sure to appreciate the multiple variations of plants and fruit trees.

Moving back inside, a bespoke staircase leads to the first floor. There are three double bedrooms and the main bathroom at this level. The master bedroom is to the rear of the house and makes the most of the south-facing aspect, with a private balcony and views of Howth Hill from here.

This room also features a walk-in wardrobe with multiple storage options, and an en suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms are located to the front of the property, with a balcony which overlooks the front garden in one.

Kenure offers an idyllic way of life for those who want to live both close to the city and the coast. Claremont Beach and Balscadden Bay Beach are within walking distance, as well as the aforementioned Burrow Beach, while there is no shortage of walks to enjoy in and around Howth.

There’s a good selection of schools nearby, while Howth DART station is just a 15-minute walk away and provides options towards the city centre and beyond.
