Exquisitely presented Arts & Crafts style waterfront residence with uninterrupted views over Dublin Bay and beyond situated in the exclusive and private Baily, County Dublin.

Danes Hollow is, without doubt, one of the finest houses in County Dublin. It could possibly lay claim to the most exceptional views from a residential dwelling, to the Baily Lighthouse, across Dublin Bay and beyond. Situated in the exclusive and highly sought after enclave of Baily, County Dublin the property not only enjoys panoramic views and immaculately landscaped terraced gardens, but ease of access to the city of Dublin, the international airport and beyond.

Built by the current owners approximately 16 years ago, with a nod to the arts and crafts style, this exceptional family home contains gracious formal reception rooms, comfortable family rooms, luxurious bedrooms and exceptional leisure facilities. The principal rooms are designed to take full advantage of the southerly aspect and waterfront views.

Approached via electronic entrance gates from Thormanby Road, a sweeping driveway winds down the hill to the residence, where there is ample parking for a number of cars discreetly located, so as not to take away from the pleasant landscaping and views. The intricately designed wrought iron gates hang in front of double wooden doors which lead to the entrance hall, reception hall and steps to the formal dining room. One's eye is instantly drawn to the delightful sea view through a fantastic bay window, where double French doors lead to the veranda. The principal reception rooms on the garden level are all interconnecting, but can easily be separated by recessed sliding doors and include a formal drawing room, informal sitting room, and library.

The well designed bespoke kitchen leads to a magnificent orangery which provides even more splendid sea views and is an ideal room for more

informal entertaining, or simply to relax and take in the vista. The garden side of the ground floor contains a large media room and a den, both with double doors to the garden.

Two sets of spiral staircases lead to the first floor where there are four beautifully proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a particular feature of the house, with double French doors out to a private balcony, two dressing rooms and a superb master ensuite bathroom. In addition there are three further large bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms and built in wardrobes.

The lower ground floor of the residence contains a serene swimming pool room with a hot tub and feature bay windows can fold back entirely, bringing the outside in and providing access on to the southerly sun bathing terrace. Both ladies and gents changing rooms are located off the pool room. A separate door leads to the gym room, with a large mirrored wall, wine cellar and laundry.

Gardens & Grounds

The gardens and grounds of Danes Hollow are a particular feature and were designed by renowned landscape designer Michael Balston where a number of beautiful terraces interspersed with mature shrubbery take full advantage of the elevated position and stunning views. A rare gem is the Shell House which has been discreetly covered and tucked away with an ornate planting design covering its roof. The Shell House contains a spacious oak panelled office with kitchen and washroom facilities.

Widely regarded as the most beautiful place to live in County Dublin, Baily is renowned for its outstanding views together commanding southerly aspect. Baily and Howth have managed to strike exactly the right balance, being a largely unchanged fishing village and yet offering everything that visitors and locals require including

a number of restaurants, pubs and shops.

A further outstanding attraction of this area is the

proximity to Dublin International Airport which is just 17km away or a twenty minute drive. Dublin City Centre is just under 16km drive.
