  • 15



    We at Felicity Fox are delighted to present to the market this beautifully situated 3 bedroom house nestled in a private setting on Skerries Harbour.  This home offers stunning views over the harbour and beyond and to the rear the house looks out to the Irish Sea.  The large rear garden is South East facing and completely private.  The interior has its own unique charm with exposed stone walls and an open plan layout upstairs complete with a timber panelled vaulted ceiling.  Viewing is a must to appreciate all that this magnificent property has to offer!

    The property dates from c.1830 and from the 1940s onwards it was used to store boats, hence the name.  The current owners converted the property in 1975 to a dwelling with full planning permission and have used it as a holiday home ever since creating many happy memories there with their children.

    The accommodation extends to approximately 90sqm (968sqft) over two floors with the living space located upstairs to take full advantage of the stunning views to front and rear.  The entrance door opens to a large hallway leading to the bathroom and bedrooms.  There are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single.  Each bedroom has fitted wardrobes.  The master bedroom features a door to the rear garden.  An open tread timber spiral staircase leads upstairs to an open plan room with exposed stone walls and a timber vaulted ceiling.  This room comprises a kitchen and a living area with a large fuel burning stove as the central feature.  A set of double doors open to a Juliette balcony overlooking picturesque Skerries Harbour.  To the back of the room another set of double doors open to a raised deck with views towards the Irish Sea and steps down to the rear garden.  This South East facing garden is completely private as it is not overlooked and is bounded by original high stone walls.

    Skerries is an idyllic coastal town situated in North County Dublin.  This vibrant location offers a host of amenities including beaches, walkways, restaurants, cafés and a wide range of shops.  The sporting enthusiast is also catered for with sailing, rugby, GAA, tennis and cricket on offer.  There are a number of primary and secondary schools in the area including an Educate Together National School.  The town is served by Irish Rail Inter City Services.  Dublin Bus operates routes from the town to neighbouring areas and Dublin city centre.  The M1 and M50 are easily accessed connecting Skerries to the wider road network.
