If you love sea swimming, this Sandycove home is in an ideal location. 


With what is surely one of the most desirable locations in the south Dublin area, Carrig Na Chattan is a five-bedroom home that sits just metres from the Forty Foot, the beloved swimming spot. Its proximity to the sea means that it has stunning views of the water, right across Dublin bay to Howth.

Inside, the house has several comfortable reception rooms for a family to relax in. A dual aspect drawing room has a large bay window that overlooks the garden, and a side window that looks out to James Joyce’s tower.

The kitchen and breakfast room are modern and bright. A black subway tile splash back contrasts with the crisp white units, creating a fresh simplicity. There is also a central island that can be used as a breakfast bar or prep space, while a pantry and utility room provide further storage.

Upstairs, four of the five bedrooms look out to the sea, while the family bathroom has an electric shower.

Sandycove home for sale

The garden is a real feature of this property, with a private, large lawn that overlooks the sea, and would be great for children to enjoy, or adults to spend summer evening in. To the front of the house, a wrought iron fence adds character to the house, while climbing plants on its exterior soften its appearance.

As well as its proximity to the sea, this house has an excellent location, just a 15 minute walk away from the nearest DART station. It’s also within walking distance of Sandycove, Glasthule and Dalkey villages, with their numerous restaurants and shops, while it has easy access to the rest of the south Dublin coast. There are also a number of schools nearby.
