Glenview, Thormanby Road, Howth, Co. Dublin

4 5 Detached 📏 299.98m2



Many of the exceptional original features, which have to be seen to be appreciated, remain in the house including fireplaces and ceiling plasterwork. Immaculately presented, these features reflect the superb upkeep seen throughout this important detached residence. Bright reception rooms and spacious bedrooms offer the discerning purchaser all the accommodation one needs with approximately 300sqm of living and sleeping space.

The gardens are a real feature with pathways and large lawn areas. There is large half-moon shaped patio terrace behind the house with paved areas leading to a fish pond and water feature. There are large lawn areas and a feature is the sunken stone water feature in the back garden. There is a Japanese style garden at the end of the garden, and there is a greenhouse and potting shed. A large detached garage is an ideal store for cars and directly behind the house is a stone built outhouse with slate roof, ideal for bins and additional storage.

Considering the size of the house and gardens; front and back, there may possibly be development potential to build a number of houses on this large site, subject to p.p.

The house is ideally situated with both Howth Village and Howth Summit within easy walking distance. It is easy to understand why Howth is one of the most sought after addresses in Dublin as it offers a wide variety of amenities in abundance. There are numerous sports clubs; sailing, golf and GAA to mention but a few. There are excellent transport links to the city centre; with a bus stop for the 31 route outside the front gates. The DART station at Howth harbour offers ease of access to all parts of the capital and Dublin Airport is a mere 20 minute drive. There are popular coastal and hill walks. Howth has developed a solid reputation for having some of the best dining establishments in north county Dublin, specialising in the locally caught fish. There is an excellent primary school in the village, numerous churches for every religion, library and a cornucopia of shops and gastronomic pubs. There is an active working fishing industry at the Harbour and a world class Marina.

It is rare that such a large period home with such large gardens is available and viewing by appointment is highly recommended.
