Plenty of space in Malahide for €1.4m

Large house on one acre with four bedrooms and four reception rooms

An Solas is just eight years old, a dream home built to the vendors’ specifications in the green of the countryside just outside Malahide village.

A large house with a peaceful air, it has a floor space of 3,200sq ft (280sq m), marble floors, sandstone fireplaces, a palette of pale creams and dark timbers and windows that are a design feature of many rooms.

Agent Savills is quoting €1.4 million for the private treaty sale.

That the vendors put a lot of thought into An Solas is obvious throughout, immediately so in the elegant sweep of the entrance hallway from where a wide, spiral staircase climbs from a cream marble floor (heated underneath) to a spacious, gallery-style landing.

Surreal view

A glass door at the end of the hallway gives a surreal view of the rear garden. There are four bedrooms off the landing, the main one front-facing, en suite and with a balcony and walk-in double wardrobe.

The ground floor has a kitchen/breakfast/ diningroom, cinema/TV room, sunroom and formal sitting and dining rooms.

A moodily elegant, brocade wallpaper in the diningroom nicely sets off a sandstone fireplace. A front-facing room, it has a deep, box-bay window and easily fits a 10-seater dining table.

Marble floors

The sitting room also faces the front, has a similar fireplace, marble floor and is accessed by double doors from the hallway.

The cinema room is just that: a comfortable room dominated by a large screen with seating, a projector and fitted units housing sound and music technology.

In the kitchen/ breakfast/diningroom there is a centre aisle with a marble top, extensive fittings, windows overlooking the garden and a door to the patio.

A sense of the garden as part of the house is especially evident in the sunroom.

To the side of the house, a step down from the kitchen, its double doors and wall of windows give full views of the garden’s 120 foot length and the tall, sentinel trees at its end.

An en suite guest bedroom on the first floor landing has a high, peaked window giving views of fields and trees.

There’s also a standalone therapy room to the side of An Solas, with its own private garden.
