TUCKED AWAY ON Violet Hill off Church Road in Killiney, south Co Dublin, Sarrett has an enviable Irish address – but its design feels distinctly LA.

Completed just last year, the five-bed property sits on an elevated site of 0.39 acres looking out at the Dublin Mountains, the Sugarloaf and Kilternan.

It’s on the market for €2.85m, with its recent completion meaning it’s ready to be moved into and enjoyed straight away. 

The contemporary home, which spans 514 sq m over three floors, has been designed to make the most of its elevated position, with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

Stepping inside, the front door opens to a large entrance hallway. There’s an indoor ‘zen garden’ here complete with greenery and scupltures, the ideal spot to take a break from technology and unwind.

A beautiful floating oak staircase leads to the first floor, where a double-height stone feature wall, double-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows give a lasting idea of what the rest of the accommodation is like. 

The open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is a light-filled and modern space, with features including LED ambient lighting, sleek kitchen units and quartz worktops. The most impressive element, however, is the outdoor all-weather terrace which is accessed from the living area via glass sliding doors.

With a glass roof, uninterrupted mountain views and plenty of space, Sarrett is perfectly set up for entertaining, special occasion dining or a day of watching the clouds go by.

The home office has these same views and direct access to the terrace, while a playroom is located behind a sliding door in the kitchen and opens onto the rear garden. A smaller sitting room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony is also on this floor.

Two of the bedrooms are on the first floor, with one of the two featuring a balcony, a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom. The other bedroom at this level opens onto the rear garden.

The most impressive bedroom, of course, is the master bedroom which is located on the second floor. It boasts the best views of the mountainous landscape, and comes complete with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. There’s one further bedroom on this level, with a private balcony overlooking Killiney Golf Club.

Sarrett is equipped with sustainable features throughout, including a heat recovery ventilation system, air-to-water heat pumps and a rainwater harvesting system. Plus, its A2 Building Energy Rating (BER) ensures it runs efficiently and cost-effectively.

While the interior of the property is impressive all by itself, the landscaped grounds offer a whole other layer of appeal. The house is approached through electric gates via a sweeping driveway, where there’s ample parking space, an electric vehicle charging point and a garage.

Mature trees create a sense of privacy throughout the outdoor seating areas, which include a terrace with a fire pit. A water feature adds to the tranquil feel, while the remainder of the garden is mainly laid in lawn.

Sarrett is a five minute drive from Killiney, while the coast is less than a 10 minute drive away. Dalkey village can be reached in the same amount of time, with no shortage of shops, sports clubs, bars and restaurants to enjoy. 

If you’re looking for a luxury Dublin property that has it all, it’s unlikely you’ll find a better match than Sarrett.
