This Malahide house, with indoor pool, will set you back €2.8 million

Have you ever dreamed of living in a house by the sea; with your own home cinema and indoor swimming pool? This property in Malahide is worth a look


Malahide is a popular spot for those who like good food, with restaurants and cafes serving fresh seafood daily. It’s also served by Dublin’s DART rail line and offers beautiful views across the Irish Sea.

For those who’d like to make the seaside village their permanent home, here’s a luxury property available to buy right now.

37 Abbott’s Hill, Malahide

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and cinema – this property in Malahide is worth a view. Located at 37 Abbott’s Hill, the house has been finished to an exceptional standard and well-maintained by its current owners.

Enter the property via a large cobble driveway and stone steps which lead to the double front doors.

From here, pass through the bright entrance hallway; with its solid marble staircase, recessed lighting, coving and seating area; and from here, onto the living room.

The living room boasts American walnut flooring, a bay window and a Belle Cheminee fireplace with marble surround. It also has recessed lighting, plus ceiling coving and centrepiece. The warm, earthy tones in this room make it an inviting place to relax in the evening and/or host guests.

Elsewhere, there is a hand-painted Mark Wilkinson kitchen. Its features include an electric Aga stove; a built-in Nespresso coffee machine; microwave; American-style fridge/freezer; dishwasher; island unit with sink and stylish granite worktops.

There is also a large dining area with double doors leading to the south-facing rear garden (more on that later), as well as a living area with an open fireplace and TV point. With so many sections to the kitchen, it truly is the heart of the home.

Upstairs

There are five bedrooms, all of which come with an ensuite. Not only that, but two of the bedrooms also benefit from large walk-in dressing rooms.

Looking to the master bedroom specifically, it boasts a bay window with sea views over Lambay Island; as well as a Belle Cheminee marble fireplace with gas insert; surround sound and recessed lighting.

Its ensuite comes with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, with a large free-standing bath, jet shower, double sinks, surround sound, built in plasma tiled TV, and wall and floor lighting.

Other features

Other notable features in this Malahide house include a home cinema and indoor swimming pool, both of which are great for relaxation as well as when having guests over.

The pool measures 11 metres in length and boasts underfloor heating, a full bar area, jacuzzi, sauna and walk-in rain shower.

Meanwhile, the cinema has sound-proofed walls, electric blinds and built-in, luxury recliner chairs on a raised platform.

Outside

To the front, electronic gates open to the cobble lock driveway, which offers parking space for up to 10 cars. There’s also a double garage to the side of the house, should new owners wish to use it.

What’s more, the property benefits from large south-facing gardens with views over Malahide beach, the Island Golf Club and Lambay Island from the sun terrace.

At €2.8 million, it certainly doesn’t come cheap. Perhaps it’s one to add to the lottery-win wishlist…
