ANYONE WHO HAS been swept up in the sea swimming trend in recent years – and with €1,300,000 to spare – might like a to organise a walk around this 381 m² home in Co Wicklow.
Just a ten-minute stroll from Magheramore Beach, this spacious five-bed home doesn’t just have a luxurious setting, however. Features inside include a fully-equipped gym, a cinema room and a kitchen that would suit a professional chef.
The high-end vibe of this house is set as soon as you walk into the hallway and are met with marble floors and a stand-out cantilevered staircase that leads to an upper mezzanine.
Underfloor heating and a contemporary high gloss kitchen that has a central island, a five ring induction hob, a Quooker tap and integrated Miele and Liebherr appliances are all sure to make this space a dream to cook in even before the next owner makes any changes to the space.
A utility room, off the kitchen, keeps things streamlined while storage units keep clutter at bay. There’s also a Corian sink and a recessed drainer along with more worktop space.
The main social space of this home has got to be this open-plan kitchen. Well-zoned and double height, it incorporates the lounge area in the centre, the dining space and then leads to sliding doors that open onto the patio.
The vaulted ceilings make way for a feature window that can be seen from the mezzanine gallery area, too, so both levels are flooded with natural light.
This home’s interesting layout means that three of the five bedrooms reside downstairs. And each of them have a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite with the main bedroom opening out on to the patio via double doors.
This all leaves plenty of space on the upper levels for more luxury touches – namely the large home gym, cinema room, a home office and another utility room. The remaining two bedrooms share the family bathroom.
The grounds surrounding this massive house are in great nick too. Approached by electric gates, the garden is laid in lawn that has a trampoline tastefully sunken into the ground so it doesn’t obstruct any views and isn’t an eyesore.
There’s plenty of parking and space to BBQ in, while an alarmed garage and a shed mean a lot more storage – the next owner might need it for water sports equipment anyway.
In terms of location, this home certainly isn’t in the middle of nowhere. A ten-minute drive will bring you to the busy seaside town of Wicklow.
And a trip further on to Greystones will let you park up and take the DART if you don’t feel like driving to the office. However, there’s no doubt you’ll be happy enough to work from your own naturally lit office on the mezzanine.
