A rare opportunity to acquire this 1970’s built home positioned on an elevated site in the popular coastal town of Howth.
The property presents a fantastic refurbishment opportunity in this sought after neighborhood, especially for those wishing to live amongst all that the Howth Peninsula has to offer. Thormanby Lodge is situated just off Thormanby Road, approximately one kilometer downhill from the Howth Summit. Number 10 sits proudly at the top end of an enclave with eleven other similar designed homes.
The property requires upgrading and some repairs throughout, however, there is plenty scope to transform this unique home which is complimented by a backdrop of coastal rich landscapes.
A flight of steps lead up to the front door and upon entering the house you will immediately notice the original parquet flooring which is still intact and an open thread staircase is centered in the hallway. There is also a functional bathroom with a shower enclosure in the entrance hallway which adjoins a bedroom facing onto the rear garden. The kitchen requires a full refurbishment and benefits from having access from both the hallway and the dining section of the open plan living room. The L shaped living room wraps around the hallway (see floorplans) and has an open fire, which could easily be converted to a wood burning stove. A prominent feature of this home is the southwest facing walled balcony, positioned off the living room, however, it does require some repair work. This is a lovely feature of this home and attracts sun all day into late evening, with its westerly aspect.
An open thread staircase leads to the second floor where you will find the landing area and very useful under eaves storage units, completed with louvre doors. The dual entry bathroom is accessible from both the landing and from the largest bedroom, the bathroom requires a full refurbishment. The master bedroom faces onto the front of the house and has a picture window peering out over a hilly green landscape. There is also access to the bathroom from this bedroom and there is also built in wardrobes under the eaves. The third bedroom is positioned at the back of the house and overlooks the mature garden.
The sloped driveway runs up the full length of the house to the back garden and has a stone wall on one side. The front garden also slopes and is laid out with lawn and shrubbery. At the top of the driveway is a block built garden house which could easily be converted to a garage/ workshop or even a habitable living space. Another unique feature of this property is a spacious cellar positioned underneath the house, which you don’t see in modern homes. Access to the underground cellar is through a half door on the driveway.
