Words can barely describe the breathtaking vista that unfolds as you enter this residence which is tucked away in the hills of Stepaside one of South Dublin's most prestigious suburbs. Spectacular, uninterrupted views across Dublin Bay, from Sutton to Killiney Hill with views of Ireland’s eye in the distance can be seen from almost every room in the property and provides an ever changing tableau, where each season brings its own spectacular sights and sounds to invigorate the senses. Imagine all of this together with glorious sun - drenched gardens which incorporate a vegetable patch, pond, sunny patio area, rockery, tennis court and land suitable for grazing which is enjoyed by the local deer, and a picture begins to emerge of what a truly special property this actually is. Tucked into the hillside on an elevated c. 7.4 acre site, Garrivhan is a fine dormer bungalow which has been extended over the years and now measures an impressive 290 sq.m/ 3,122sq.ft approx.

The grounds that come with the property are substantial; the immediate environs contain beautiful mature gardens with an abundance of many fine plants and mature trees. The house itself sits on c. 0.8 acres of mature gardens while the full site itself extends to a total of 7.4 acres approx.
