IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE THAT, in today’s world of rising costs, taking on a big refurbishment may be the last thing some new home owners have in their sights.
So, for those looking for a luxury modern home that’s ready to walk into, take a look at Old Horizons, a completely overhauled four-bed home in Howth that spans 190 m² and has some of best views in the county.
Now on the market for €1,200,000, improvements have meant that the house has an A3 BER thanks to great insulation, a new extension and a fresh internal layout.
A house split over three levels, the middle floor is home to the living room – a modern space with semi-solid oak floors, an electric fireplace, fitted storage units and two roof lights which let the natural brightness pour in.
From the get-go you can tell that this house takes pride in its positioning. Views towards Portmarnock and Malahide are presented in the hallway while a glass handrail keeps things airy and ensures nothing is obstructed.
The middle floor also has a guest toilet and a utility room that’s separate from the large and elegant kitchen and dining room. Fully integrated appliances, a striking kitchen island and stone worktops make this a dream space for the keen cook.
There’s peace of mind when it comes to safety thanks to more toughened glass rails on the balcony that’s off the main bedroom, which also has built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The balcony is covered so the views and fresh air can be enjoyed all year around.
There is a second room that also has an en suite – this one looks over the back garden.
At lower garden level, there’s an office/gym that soaks up any available light with floor to ceiling windows – a clever design feature for a room that’s essentially in the basement.
A shower room and a cellar ideal for storing sports equipment, gardening tools as well as wine makes this a versatile and handy space as it has direct access to the garden.
The garden is low maintenance and in good shape, ready for the next owner with green fingers to work their magic. There’s a patio and BBQ are along with more storage. This outdoor space also has the benefit of lighting and external plug points ideal for any garden parties, which are inevitable.
For Dublin folk, the picturesque village of Howth, just north of the city, needs little in the way of introduction. Casana View is a collection of properties on a family-friendly cul-de-sac with the village just a 20 minute walk away.
With every amenity needed for everyday family life, as well as a host of new activities, on the doorstep, whoever buys Old Horizons – as the name suggests – is sure to broaden their own.
Old Horizons, 16 Casana View, Howth, Dublin 13 is on the market for €1,200,000 through JB Kelly.
