€4.5m Howth seafront mansion designed by architect Colin Jennings / studio|dsq.
Violet Hill has some of the best views in Dublin. It looks out over Dublin Bay to the front and to the side, you can see Dublin city. “At night when the lights come on it’s just incredible.”
Engaged by the current owners, the brief was to alter/enhance the existing large seafront home and to optimise the aspect. The south-facing four bedroom house, located off Windgate Road on the southern slopes of the Howth Peninsula is on two acres of land with no buildings surrounding. Its completely uninterrupted bay vista features the Kish Bank lighthouse in the distance, ships coming and going; to the right, is Wicklow Head, Bray Head, Dalkey Island and Dun Laoghaire.
