360° Virtual Tour


JB Kelly is proud to present this wonderful 3 storey Georgian property to the market located in the heart of Howth Village. Built in 1888 and recently renovated throughout, 1 Abbey Street boasts all the charm and character of this era with high ceilings, sash windows, dado rails and ceiling coving.

Boasting comfortable versatile accommodation of approximately 196sqm, this property could be suitable for home and income purposes. Repurposing the accommodation does not require any structural alteration, making the current floor plan extremely flexible. The current owners have changed the use of some of the rooms but this can easily be changed back to their original purpose (eg original reception rooms being used as bedrooms and original bedrooms used as reception rooms). The top floor has been adapted as a self contained apartment with kitchen, living room and en-suite bedroom.

Accommodation consists of an imposing hallway with 2 interconnected reception rooms, both with period fireplaces, utility room and guest WC. There is a light filled bathroom on the first floor return and at first floor level there is a large open plan kitchen / dining / living room with stunning sea views of Howth Harbour and Howth Pier. There is also a bedroom with en-suite off at this level.

A light filled conservatory with sea views is located on the second floor return. Continuing to second floor level, there is a kitchen, living room and double sized bedroom with en suite off. This level can be maintained as an apartment to provide an income or simply changed back to 3 bedrooms depending on requirements. A spiral staircase leads to a spacious attic conversion which can be used for a variety of purposes.

1 Abbey Street is just steps away from all the bustling activity in Howth Village including restaurants, bars and shops. Coastal promenade walks can be enjoyed at the nearby Pier and Harbour. There are numerous recreational amenities in Howth including breath taking cliff path walks, golf and sailing. The city centre is easily accessed with a regular bus service and Howth Dart Station is within walking distance.

This property enjoys immense character throughout and now provides a rare opportunity to create a home of true distinction in a premier coastal location.

Viewing is highly recommended and is by appointment only.
