IT SEEMS FITTING that Saint Christophers was the name given to these two homes in Howth seeing as he is the patron saint of safe travels. Just a short stroll from Howth harbour, the village and the DART station, there’s a huge chance that whoever has had the luxury of living here hasn’t needed to travel much by car.

Now, one of these striking modern homes is on the market for €2.2 million and for anyone with Dublin in their heart – as well as the money in the bank – this could just be the place.

Spanning 400 m², this large home that was built in 2008 nods to past grandeur but has all of the conveniences needed for a life of modern luxury. Stepping inside the front door, the entrance hall with its Portuguese limestone flooring and guest cloakroom gives an idea of what’s in store for the rest of the house. An atrium with an electric weather sensitive roof soaks the space in natural light, too.

Along with the more traditional looking rooms sits a more contemporary open plan kitchen, living and dining space. There are two formal reception rooms that both have fireplaces and a study ideal for those who work from home. 

One of the reception rooms has double doors that lead to the dining room and then on to the stand-out sun room that looks out onto the well-maintained gardens.

The limestone flooring in the hallway continues throughout the ground floor and into the high-end kitchen by SieMatic that features brands such as Neff and Gaggenau. From this space, double doors open out onto the back garden, which faces south.

The bathrooms actually outnumber the bedrooms in this large home, which mean no one should be left short. Upstairs sit the five bedrooms all of which are double and en suite. The main bedroom has the best view Howth Head. And if the en suites aren’t enough, there’s also a main family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath.

With plenty of off-street parking in the driveway to the front and a large private garden to the back, inside and out this is a home for the house proud and those who love to host guests.

The village of Howth has the benefit of being close to Dublin city centre yet it offers a great sense of community, plenty of amenities and scenic views.

Indeed, it’s the location, as well as the size, of this home that’s the big draw. Hypothetically, if you were to park up on move-in day and lose your car keys, would it really matter all that much?

Saint Christophers, 101 Howth Road, Howth, Dublin 13 is on the market for €2.200,000 through Gallagher Quigley.
