With extensive amounts of glass in almost every room, this modern Dalkey home feels bright and connected to the outdoors. 

An innovative design and the latest home technology throughout make Graymoor very different from many traditional properties currently on the market in the Dalkey area.

Situated on Loreto Avenue, right next to Loreto Dalkey school, the property’s design centres around three courtyards, maximising the light that can enter the house, while providing a link to the outside, despite the fact that the house has no traditional garden.

There is a landscaped courtyard on the ground level as you enter, and the hallway leads through to the bespoke solid oak kitchen. It also features large swathes of Italian Carrara and Grey Tundra marble, while the dining space features sliding glass doors that open up completely to the courtyard, creating a real indoor-outdoor feel.

There is also a sunken lounge on this level, with provides a cosy space if you feel the need to retreat from all the glass. A garage with electronic door provides a place for car parking, and an adjacent oak-lined boot room will store the coats and bags that get discarded as you enter the house.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms share an external courtyard terrace that provides light as well as outdoor access, while the other two bedrooms have views over the main ground floor courtyard, and there are two other lightwells adding brightness to this level.

The master bedroom has an en suite that is concealed by mirrored wardrobe panels, while all the bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes with sliding mirrored panels, and fold-down desk areas. The blinds and curtains throughout the house are electronically controlled, and the blinds retract into recesses in the wall, so are invisible when not in use.

The top floor is split between a fully glazed space offering views of the sea, and a large outdoor terrace. This space could serve as a living room or entertaining space, while the roof terrace would be the perfect place to host summer get-togethers.
