TUCKED AWAY AMONG lavish gardens sits Las Rocas, a five-bedroom mansion just minutes away from Howth village.

With a name that means ‘the rocks’ in English, the property is located on an elevated site and really does looks as though it has been transported from a Spanish island. The total floor area of the home spans an impressive 4,273 sq ft.

Entering the property at ground floor level, a striking central staircase immediately grabs your attention.

On this ground floor level there are two large double bedrooms which share a Jack and Jill en-suite bathroom, meaning there’s access to the bathroom from each bedroom. There is also another bedroom with sea views and an en-suite bathroom, which features a Pharo shower system and rain forest shower head.

Also on this floor is the master bedroom, which boasts spectacular views of Dublin Bay, Sutton Creek and the Dublin Mountains from an outdoor terrace. A walk-in wardrobe and high spec en-suite bathroom complete the room.

The central staircase leads to an extensive landing area which is filled with natural light as a result of the octagonal glass roof overhead.

A large family room and a large sunroom are on the first floor, both with access to a wraparound terrace with views of the Dublin Mountains and Dublin Bay. Dinner al fresco, anyone?

Potential homeowners with large families needn’t worry about having enough space to relax peacefully, with a study and sitting room also on this floor.

A double bedroom and en-suite bathroom provide further space, while there is also a guest bathroom with eye-catching mosaic tiles.

The open-plan Siematic kitchen and dining room – complete with Chinese slate floor tiles – share impressive sea and island views, with an island breakfast bar and dining table giving ample room for the entire family.

For those who enjoy hosting guests, the property also includes a separate guest lodge with a living room, kitchen and bathroom.

Las Rocas is approached via a sweeping driveway off St Fintan’s Road. The gardens are built into the rock face, with rock pools and mature greenery.

Despite the site’s secluded location, there are several bus routes within walking distance, while Bayside and Howth DART stations are a 10 minute drive away. The city centre can be reached by car in 35 minutes.

Saint Fintan’s National School and Sutton Park School are both a short walk away. For sport enthusiasts, Howth Golf Club, Deer Park Golf Club and Suttonians Hockey Club are in close proximity to the property.
