BUILT IN THE early part of the 20th century, Brackenlea is a luxurious house in the Howth hills with commanding sea views, five bedrooms and no shortage of green space surrounding it.

Home to the Bewley family until 1986, the newest owners spent time renovating the original house, extending each of the two levels to create more social and sleeping spaces, and, all the while, ensuring the best views of the sea.

Mimicking the outdoors and its lavish location, the inside is expansive and drenched in natural light seeing as floor to ceiling glazed windows and doors make up much of the patio-facing rooms. L-shaped and open plan layouts make up the main social spaces – the kitchen, living and dining area is bright and sleek in style.

The kitchen is sure to suit those who love cooking. It’s home to a large granite island unit with plenty of storage, a four-plate Aga and appliances by Neff, Liebherr and Fisher & Paykel. There are two dishwashers and a double sink with a waste disposal unit, which means keeping this place clean shouldn’t be too taxing.
