Three dream houses to buy if you want to live by the sea

Have you ever dreamed of living by the sea? Coastal living comes with all sorts of benefits; the fresh, salty air is good for our lungs; while the beautiful views work wonders on our mental health. If you're on the lookout for a new home and have a taste for luxury, have a look at these three houses available to buy right now.

208 Clontarf Road, Clontarf – €950,000

Overlooking Clontarf’s seafront promenade, this four-bedroom home at 208 Clontarf Road is one to view. It has been fully renovated throughout and is in turn-key condition. The house's traditional features, such as high ceilings and fireplaces, blend perfectly with the more modern ones. These include triple-glazed windows; multiple TV points and sound speakers; gas-fired central heating; and chrome downlights. A well-kept lawn is located to the rear of the property, with a patio area for al fresco dining. Off-street parking is also available, but you can leave the car at home as Clontarf village is a mere stone's throw away.

Calander Cottage, Claremont Road, Killiney, Co. Dublin – €1,295,000

If the grandeur of the previous property isn't for you, consider this quaint cottage on Claremont Road, Killiney. This detached dormer bungalow has breathtaking views across Dublin Bay. It's deceptively small-looking from the front, with four bedrooms and five bathrooms inside. The home is bright and airy with 10ft patio doors and large picture windows throughout. While the upstairs rooms require modernisation, each of the bedrooms feature an ensuite bathroom and views over Dun Laoghaire Harbour and Dublin Port. Located near Killiney and Dalkey Villages, the house is in close proximity to bars, restaurants, and shops; while the entrance to Killiney Hill and the Tower Tea Rooms is only a short walk away.
