Istria is a superb spacious family residence, occupying a magnificent, elevated site on Dalkey Avenue with spectacular views of Dun Laoghaire Harbour, Dublin Bay, Howth and the city lights. Ideally positioned a short walk from Dalkey town with its excellent shopping facilities, schools, bus routes and the DART not to mention Killiney Hill with its wonderful walks.

There are two bedrooms to the rear which enjoy wonderful sea and city views where one can watch the ships sail into Dublin Port. The principal suite which enjoys views across the bay is exceptionally spacious with a fully shelved walk-in wardrobe/ dressing room and a bathroom ensuite. Completing the accommodation at this level is a modern wet room.
The property is further enhanced by landscaped gardens. Approached to the front through gates that open onto a driveway with car parking for up to 4 cars. This area is bounded by walls and mature plants and shrubs. There is direct access to the rear via a side entrance. The northwest facing rear garden has been beautifully landscaped with lawns, gravel pathways, strategically planted shrubs, trees and plants providing all year-round colour and a raised patio area with access into the conservatory.
