11 Nashville Pk , Howth, County Dublin
Nashville Park is quite simply one of Howth’s best kept secrets. Beside the village and within walking distance of bus & Dart, your children will be forever grateful because convenience living is not over-rated. This is a dead-end cul-de-sac used pretty much by residents only. Despite it being adjacent to the village, there is no traffic. Or noise. It is quiet and rural. Fishing trawlers & sail boats pass by in Balscadden Bay below and gulls squawk overhead. This is rural-maritime, unique, special and must be visited to fully appreciate what a wonderful place this is to live. I should know, as I was fortunate enough to grow up here. The house is unusual, quirky and unconventional. Dating from the late 1800’s it’s Victorian in every way. One of six terraced homes perched high above the village and harbour in Howth, constructed for military men by Scottish builder Robert Nash. Extending to 220sq m (2,368sq ft), this home has been in the same family for the half it’s life. Though in need of upgrading, beneath its floral carpets and wallpaper, the bones of a wonderful Victorian home lie. A drawing and dining room flank each side of the reception hall, both of which have original fireplaces. Ceilings which soar to 13ft feature tapered sides and ordained both ground floor reception rooms and the two largest of the five bedrooms. The views from the front doorstep and both front reception rooms are wonderful, and even more impressive from the top floor where Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island are revealed. The property faces south yet has little or no rear garden. The sunken patio area to the rear has the potential to provide a sheltered space for all fresco dining, ample space to entertain and enjoy. The kitchen and dining area needs attention, and the fortunate new owner will impose their stamp on this part of their new home. Inside is old fashioned and does require redecorating throughout. But make no mistake, at this price, the reward for the effort will be a home that will be cherished by all who live here.
