This recently refurbished house combines its old shell with modern flourishes, and would make for a unique home.


Set in an enviable location, just three minutes’ walk from Sandymount strand, 18 Saint John’s Road combines features full of character with modern luxury.

The living area is the star of this home, with a 7.2 metre-high vaulted ceiling, exposed wooden beams and brick walls, and an open fireplace with a solid fuel stove. It manages to feel both spacious and cosy, dramatic and casual. A spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine that overlooks this space, providing another relaxation area.

The newly-refurbished kitchen, in contrast, is all sleek white units and minimal finishes, which is a bright space that feels very contemporary. An adjoining family room could be used for a multitude of purposes. There is also utility room on this level, as well as a room that is currently used as an art studio.

Sandymount house for sale

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, several of which also feature vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The main bedroom has an ensuite, and there is also a family bathroom.

Outside, there is a patio area with a raised deck to the side of the house, while the mature garden at the rear can be accessed through double doors from both the kitchen and family room. The garden features old stone walls, fruit trees, and there is also an old coach house that serves as a garage or storage area.

As well as its proximity to the beach, this home is also well-placed to access the city centre, which is just a 15 minutes’ drive or cycle. The DART is also close by, as well as many good schools. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this home.
