Description


Description
Grand designs meets amazing spaces....

Pictures speak louder than words when trying to describe this truly wonderful conservation project which has brought a derelict stone building back to life. Originally part of a ' famine cluster' of dwellings, the property then spent most of its life as an agricultural building before the current owners carefully and creatively transformed it into a stunning modern residence. Designed and overseen by renowned architect Emmet Humphreys, this is one of the best examples of clever conservation we have ever encountered.

Externally, the property at first glace appears to still be an agricultural building. That is until you turn around the corner, enter the wonderful enclosed courtyard and feast your eyes on all the surprises that await. Surprisingly spacious, the property boasts approx. 132m2 of living space over one and a half floors designed in an ultra modern minimalist theme. Every item and fixture is bespoke, handmade and of the highest quality. The polished concrete floors are warm to the touch due to underfloor heating. Flooded with natural light the extra large pivot doors and roof lights catch all the sun from their south facing aspect. One of the most wonderful features is the first floor lounge area which overlooks the ground floor living area. An eye for detail, quality and design are a must to fully appreciate this unique home.

Located on quiet lane just off N.1 and only a 2 minute walk from the well known Monasterboice Inn. Nearby bus stop with excellent commuter service and Dublin airport is less than 35 mins via M.1.
