DNG are proud to present this wonderful family home. A tranquil space where an active and extended family can feel at home. Located minutes from the seashore, beside public transport, schools, sports facilities, parklands and a myriad of walks stretching from the shore to the Dublin hills Slainte has appeal. Built in 1984 and extended in the early 2000s Slainte has much to offer.
The current owner's brief to the architect included 'a multi-functional space that complimented the existing building, increased light and where creativity and joy could flourish. Slainte is an example of the value of creative architectural input and reflects the architect's vision "Architecture should be the resolution of frustrations, and the development of dreams into reality" Simon Hoe architect added interest, light and space transforming the original building into a home that is warm and welcoming. The clever extension surprises with a double height living space creating an experience of calm and harmony which is further enhanced by the lush growth, winding paths and sitting nooks in the garden. Dappled light streaming through long tall windows from different directions bring you right home from the busy bustle to the peace and quiet. Secluded yet providing multi-functional spaces including a home office, bathroom, bedroom, living space and mezzanine area. It can be shared by all the family or reserved for grandparent visits or the parent's suite while complimenting the living space, three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom in the original building. The unique design allows for family to live together yet apart. It lends itself to the many generational stages in life from young family to growing teenagers and college students to the older years to accommodate the fond nanny.
Secure and private the rear garden is a delight, a lovely space to soak up the sun, meditate, to potter to ones heart's content, or simply enjoy a good read under the vine. It is planted with fruits including apricot, fig, cooking and eating apples, red and black currant, grapevine, copper hazelnut and a small productive vegetable bed. You will find herbs dotted here and there in the perennial borders that line the paths. Birds pop about nipping, picking and twittering among the trees as you make your way round. High walls make this garden safe and secure where children and pets are free to play, create and explore.
