Oceanfront House is a striking contemporary home on Dublin's windswept Howth Peninsula—one of the most coveted coastal locations on the Emerald Isle. This one-of-a-kind, five-bedroom home sits discreetly into the landscape in an area of outstanding natural beauty, just outside Howth village.
A sense of place Oceanfront House is the last word in discretion. The property was imbued with a sense of place by its creator, the internationally renowned architect Andrzej Wejchert of AD Wejchert and Partners. Oceanfront House is located 30 minutes to Dublin city center and 20 minutes to the airport. The restaurants and facilities of Howth village are just a short walk away. At one with its private setting on the Hill of Howth, Oceanfront House offers an unrivaled, front-row view of Ireland's Eye, Lambay Island, and the Irish Sea beyond. The structure itself pays homage to its surroundings through the use of local materials. Clad in Howth Stone, an indigenous ochre colored sandstone, the exterior walls blend seamlessly into the landscape. The roof is covered in sustainable, corrosion-resistant zinc, and offers two roof terraces from which to take in the breathtaking coastal panorama
Luxurious Coastal Living The residence is composed of a split-level, single-story living and entertaining wing and a two-story bedroom wing, offering a total 3,390 square feet of airy, light-filled interior space. Oceanfront House affords splendid isolation but with every modern luxury. Designed to an exacting standard, the finishes throughout are meticulous. Double-glazed and thermally broken windows bring in the light and the views yet also provide protection from the elements. White-oiled oak and Liscannor-tile floors throughout are equipped with an underfloor gas-fired heating system. The sleek contemporary kitchen, situated on the entrance level to connect to the main living spaces, features white siltstone countertops. An open doorway leads into a large dining room overlooking the living room, itself divided into two distinct areas by a dual-fronted fireplace. Vast walls of glass frame the dramatic vistas of the Howth coastline and the Irish Sea.
Designed for Ultimate Peace and Privacy Every area of the house offers privacy. Three luxurious bedrooms are on the entrance level. A flight of stairs leads down to two additional bedroom suites and a sixth bedroom, currently configured as an office. The joinery, flooring, glass balustrades, open shelving, and niches are all beautifully crafted. The main bedroom has a sumptuous bathroom. The second bedroom has a spacious en suite with a shower and a sliding glass door to a private terrace. Each of the bedrooms has an oversized en suite bathroom (three of which have baths) appointed with Philippe Starck sanitary ware and Hansgrohe showers, all as luxurious as those in the world's finest hotels. The house is set within 7.2 acres of verdant private grounds. It is surrounded by 300 acres of magnificent land which is totally protected landscape. The land has been designated as an area to which attaches a Special Area Amenity Order, which attributes the most stringent level of planning protection. No other home can ever be built here. This is because the surrounding landscape is Government-designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a home to wild birds, animals, sea cliffs, heathland, and rocky outcroppings. It is land which was sacred and inspirational to many creative people, most notably Samuel Beckett and James Joyce. The house is in close proximity to three main beaches, two hidden beaches, yacht clubs, exclusive golf clubs, excellent schools, and frequent public transport systems BR>
