Hawk eye views from Vico Road for €2.145m
Split-level Dalkey property has panoramic sea views and sloped gardens
Vico Road is one of the most prestigious addresses in the country – and with good reason. The uninterrupted sea views of the Irish “Bay of Naples”, just a short distance from the picturesque village of Dalkey, have captivated celebrities and the very well-to-do for decades.
Hawk Cliff, a split-level residence, has enviable maritime vistas from Sorrento Terrace all the way to Bray Head and beyond to the Wicklow Mountains.
Constructed in the 1960s, but with recent overhauls, the property has a footprint of 278sq m over two floors. It is all designed to maximise the sea views: reception rooms are on the upper level, and the recent addition of two terraces gives a further 92sq m of space for entertaining outdoors.
With a style more in keeping with Hollywood Hills, Hawk Cliff retains a contemporary feel despite its age. All rooms, with the exception of a lounge and study, have sea views, which is probably a blessing as the sea views would be far too distracting from the mundane task of work.
The four-bedroom house is part of a receiver sale, and despite being staged for sale and in good condition, the new owners will want to undertake some upgrades. The bathrooms need an overhaul, and the kitchen while in good shape, lacks the contemporary style of a property of this calibre.
The gardens are sloped over terraces, as the site itself is tucked into the edge of the hill, and new owners have the benefit of access to the popular Vico Baths just outside their front entrance.
Hawk Cliff is for sale through Savills with an asking price of €2.145 million.
