Description

Las Rocas is a truly unique residence, situated on an elevated site with a south westerly orientation that extends to approximately 1.25 acres. Dramatically constructed into the rock face to enjoy 180̊ views over Dublin Bay to the port, the city and the Eastern coastline of North County Dublin, this stylish property has been designed to melt into the Howth Hilllandscape even as it spectacularly encompasses those incomparable, panoramic views.

Exuding charm and elegance both inside and out, Las Rocas provides generous and comfortable family accommodation.This magnificent five bedroom property extends to approximately 433 sq. m. of well-orchestrated and proportioned accommodation throughout. The clever design of the naturally sloping site has resulted in a two storey property with the main access on the ground floor, but easy accessibility at both levels. On entering, one is immediately struck by the calm and elegant entrance hall with feature staircase. At this level are four bedrooms, two with a shared Jack and Jill bathroom, one with ensuite shower room.

The large master bedroom offers West-facing views, a generously proportioned ensuite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe with ample storage and shelving. The broad central flight of stairs leads up to an expansive landing area flooded with natural light from the octagonal glass lantern roof. To the front is a large family room with access to the study and Southfacing sun room with wall-to-wall windows. The sitting room, which is accessed from both the family room and landing, has a polished sandstone fireplace and windows on three sides to draw the eye to the constantly changing vista across the water.

The large open kitchen / dining room with island unit and top of the range Neff appliances has ample storage units, a well-designed pantry and easy access to the adjacent utility room. A fifth bedroom, with wooden panelling and large ensuite bathroom, completes the accommodation at this level. All the reception rooms and the kitchen have magnificent views and all have access through full-length glass sliding doors to the large South-West facing wraparound terrace.

Las Rocas is afforded considerable privacy due to its elevation and the mature hedging surrounding the property. Approached through iron security gates, the property is accessed via a curving, paved driveway bordered by beautifully maintained gardens. The grounds offer a colourful montage over the course of the year with attractive flowering beds and shrubberies. Keen gardeners will appreciate the variety of planting including stunning rhododendrons and flowering climbers which tumble down the rock face. Of the water features within the garden, the most eye-catching is a pumped waterfall, effortlessly cascading down the quarry face to the rock pool below. The sloping site is home to meandering pathways and strategically placed benches, offering the opportunity to appreciate a space full of tranquillity and serenity, yet with enough trees and shrubbery for children and adults of all ages to enjoy exploring or a game of Hide and Seek. Of particular note is the south and west facing wrap around patio, with built in barbecue and ample space and seating to enjoy one of Dublin’s most exceptional views. Las Rocas is a glorious and tranquil secluded space to watch the sun pass over Dublin City and Bay to its setting in the west.

Sutton is an enviable and much sought after Dublin suburb, offering charming village living whilst also being very accessible to Dublin City and its surrounding environs. The established and quaint villages of Sutton, approximately 2.5 km, and Howth, approximately 4 km from Las Rocas include a charming selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques.
