Hendre, St. George's Avenue, Killiney, Co. Dublin, A96 FR94

€4,400,000 - Asking Price|6 Bedrooms, 637 sqm approx

It is the light that first hits you when you enter Hendre. The entire house is designed to maximise the beautifully clear light of the Irish coast, flooding through full-height glass walls and windows to infuse the design with the natural beauty of a magnificent setting.

Situated in Killiney Hill, above Killiney Bay, just outside of Dublin, the villa was devised to maximise this light and space. Inspired by the work of Mies van der Rohe, it sits on the site of Lt. Col. E. Watson’s large 1906 estate, but was completely rebuilt in 2007 by architects Smith and Kennedy, and renovated in 2014 to bring the level of finish and amenities on par with the dramatic architecture and impressive location. The result is a Modernist masterpiece, sitting proudly in 1.03 acres of private parkland; an iconic design statement transformed into a flexible and beautiful family home.
