With spectacular sea views, this Dalkey home is certainly in an enviable location


San Elmo Lodge is a home situated just off Torca Road and high above the sea at Killiney Bay, with views that would capture your attention all year round. It makes the most of its split-level site, and is set into the hillside making it unobtrusive to the eye.

Inside, the style is minimalist and understated, with sleek modern materials and unfussy finishes. The first floor houses the main living areas including the kitchen and dining room. This open plan space has floor-to-ceiling windows that make the view the star of the show, and a terrace at this level is ideal for al fresco dining, allowing you to look out to the sea.

The kitchen is well fitted out, with a Bulthaup island, Siemens oven and conductor hob, and an integrated spice rack. The pantry area that divides the kitchen and living spaces has extensive storage, as well as an American-style fridge, wine fridge and ice maker.

A study is separated from this space by sliding doors, and a TV room also enjoys privacy from this main space, allowing a place to retreat. The mature trees that surround the house ensure a pleasant view in all directions.

The lower level that looks out to the garden is where the master bedroom is located, which has its own dressing room and wetroom. It is also very bright thanks to large windows. There are two more double bedrooms on this level, as well as a shower room and bathroom. A laundry room on this level houses the washing machine.

If you’d like these spectacular views to be yours, you’ll need deep pockets — at €3.9 million, it’s not in many people’s budgets, but it has been reduced! We can always dream.
