THERE IS A distinct advantage to living on a relatively small island: homes with seaside views are reasonably easy to find. Whichever corner of the country you’re conducting your property search in, you’re liable to find a home with a seaside view.
We’ve narrowed down that search to these four homes with delightful seaside views, where you can settle down, work from home, or raise a family — all with that calming water view within reach. From Waterford to Kerry, here are four homes with sea views you can add to your property wish list.
Just nine kilometres from Dungarvan, Ballinagoul Beg offers an expansive view of Dungarvan Bay and the Comeragh Mountains beyond. The five bedroom, four bathroom detached home is just an easy stroll to local beaches and Helvic Harbour.
The open-plan kitchen/dining room is the heart of the house — and boasts some of the best seaside views. The kitchen was hand-crafted by Philip Dunne with granite worktops; off the kitchen there is a bright conservatory as well as an additional lounge, perfect for entertaining guests. The newly fitted stove in the living room heats the entire home while you gaze out at the ocean.
Just up the coast in Co Wicklow, 3 Cliff Manor is a three bedroom, three bathroom terraced home with a balcony that would rival the Spanish coast. You can’t argue with the Irish Sea views from the home’s spot nestled against the clifftop.
The accommodation comprises a porch and an open plan dining/family room with a patio that offers incredible sea views. The fully-equipped contemporary kitchen accesses a low-maintenance westerly facing rear garden. There is also a guest WC, utility room and additional living room on the ground floor. Upstairs, you’ll find three double bedrooms, including the main bedroom with en suite bathroom and access to the sea-view balcony.
Across the country in Co Kerry, a search for homes with seaside views will deliver a five bedroom, three bathroom detached home looking out to Valentia Island, Knightstown, and Church Island.
With quality finishes throughout, you’ll be looking at your seaside views from a home you’ll be able to enjoy for a long time. Hardwood floors, doors, stairs, skirting and architrave are notable additions, and the home includes three reception rooms, a large scullery room, two bathrooms and a separate utility and WC on the main floor. Outside, the grounds are fully landscaped, and include a steel garage and tennis court.
Finally, back to Co Dublin, this three bedroom, one bathroom semi-detached home in Rush offers views of one of the 29 Martello towers in the county. The sea view at this home is to the rear, and the home is situated at the end of the village and beside Rush Harbour. You enter the property through the storm porch into the sitting room and then into a large kitchen/dining room. Both rooms have open fireplaces.
Upstairs, you’ll find two double bedrooms and one large single room, along with a family bathroom. The lawned gardens at the back overlook the Martello tower and the sea beyond.
