Slick Sutton coastguard station transformation for €995,000

Clever makeover expands and updates coastguard cottage

The Coastguard Station tucked away at the end of Sutton’s Strand Road is a rare find. Steeped in maritime history, the original terrace of low buildings is one of a number constructed by the British navy around Ireland in the 1850s to protect the Irish coastline. The current owners purchased the simple brick-faced cottage and adjoining two-storey whitewashed lookout tower with panoramic views of Dublin bay for €400,000 in 2014. After a tortuous planning process they extended to the rear and the result is a sympathetically constructed home filled with light, charm and discrete spaces.

Now on the market for €995,000 through Gallagher Quigley, the simple original structure has been cleverly transformed to incorporate three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and three reception rooms. Owners Nadia and Mack Lennon have form in the home refurbishment space – Nadia is a house designer (she adds the aesthetic flourishes to an architects’ drawings) and Mack is a property manager. Prior to this project they had extensively restored a vast 1930s beachside property on nearby Burrow Road.
