Moy Ire, is an impressive red brick , beach front residence with epic views and accommodation to match. This grand, double fronted home has both compelling scale and amenity, with a picture perfect bay aspect and fabulous south facing principle rooms from which to enjoy it. The accommodation runs to an arresting c6400 square feet (c594 m2) and covers three stories over a self-contained basement, the latter providing opportunities for staff, or inter-generational living arrangements. Entering the property the first of many striking spaces is the monumental stairwell, stylishly furnished with a coiling , brass trimmed oak staircase, which seems to go up forever , whilst another short flight brings you down to double doors and the main reception room. Beyond those doors everything changes, an enormous kitchen/living area , bathed in southerly light , with wall to wall fenestration and affecting vistas beyond. This space flows onto an inviting patio area and well considered coastal garden , with direct beach access to Sutton strand. As the principle room, it serves a number of functions effortlessly, with copious space to cook, dine , lounge etc. The style here is luxurious but relaxed , with chic cabinets , simple hardwood flooring and a contemporary Carrera fireplace. At this level there is also a sunny laundry room with killer sea view and an adjoining boot room with internal access to the large double garage. Moving back to the front of the house there are twin receptions flanking the entrance. These lovely rooms are slightly more intimate in scale and both have elegant square bay windows. One room has a fireplace and traditional panelling and is used as a family TV room, the other is designed as an adult study. There is also a marble powder room , cavernous cloaks area and a pretty porch on the ground floor. On the first floor a large airy landing leads to a serious entertainment space , expansive and with an elevated , apparently limitless view over Dublin bay. In the foreground the pristine wilderness of Sutton creek and Bull Island with it’s resident seal colony. In the distance an encompassing panorama from Howth Head , over the peaks of the Dublin mountains round to the port and cityscape to the West. This room is glamorous and festive, with comfortable furnishings, crystal chandelier and deco style, marble fireplace. The three first floor bedrooms are all doubles and all have polished marble en-suites. The bed room to the rear would surely be highly coveted, given its mesmerizing sea view. The two front rooms are also charming with double windows and traditional joinery. The third floor is lofty and secluded and is entirely devoted to the Master suite. This is another vast, luxurious set of rooms, again with numerous captivating coastal views. The bedroom’s huge volume is further magnified by a discreet balcony and the sweeping borrowed seascape beyond. The en-suite is properly opulent and oversized, it is finished with Arabescato stone , high end fittings, and a raised bath with framed views. Even the separate w.c. has a rooftop view down the length of the blue lagoon. The suite is completed by a large functional dressing room. Down in the basement the luxury continues, with 1,000 square feet of self-contained accommodation and its own separate external access. It is roomy and well laid out with a spacious living area, kitchenette , double bedroom and large en-suite. Moy Ire is a rare thing in that it combines imposing kerb appeal with abundant amenity and most importantly, a bewitching location. The timeless scene of sky, sea and strand ,only interrupted by the slow progress of ships, or the occasional murmuration of migratory flocks , makes for a very special place to live. The Howth peninsula is home to wonderful heritage sites and a picturesque fishing harbour, but is perhaps most renowned for it’s natural beauty and protected landscapes. Many scenic routes and walking trails criss cross the spectacular upland heath and rugged coastline.Though Howth is undoubtedly the place for outdoor pursuits , more sedate pleasures are also well catered for, in the vibrant village scene of pubs, eateries and shops.
