Apt 9, Saint Helen`s, Marine Parade, Sandycove, Co. Dublin, A96 D426






74 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to offer this exceptional seafront property, 9 St. Helen's (c. 800sqft/74.3sqm), for sale by private treaty. Built circa 1984, this exclusive small development enjoys uninterrupted sea views over Scotsman's Bay, the Martello Tower, The Pier and Howth.

A superb opportunity to purchase a spacious, fully refurbished and bright top floor apartment that offers an enviable lifestyle. Number 9 is set in a building of only 3 apartments. Each apartment benefits from its own floor and this provides for tremendous privacy. It has highly sought-after parking and a private lock up storage unit. The interior communal area of the building has all been refurbished, with the beautifully maintained landscaped grounds by the management company. The rear of the development leads on to the main street in Glasthule Village and the DART. Dalkey is within walking distance.

Situated in one of the most desirable location in South County Dublin, properties in this building do not come up for sale regularly and with good reason. As for lifestyle, Sandycove has it all, from coastal walk, bathing areas, sailing clubs, the piers to the local villages that provide all one could wish for whether it be boutique shopping or gastronomy. The iconic Cavistons is very near and that is only one of many that are at the disposal of the new keeper of number 9 St. Helen's.

Viewing is quite simply a must and this property cannot fail to impress.

Top Floor Hall:
This apartment is set on the top floor and has enjoyed exclusive use of the hall/common area on the top floor. This has meant the current owner has created a very warm welcome to number 9 with clever units and superb Amtico flooring.

Entrance Hall: c. 2.56m x 1.43m
There is a beautiful glass porthole on the hall door that is in keeping with the seaside theme of this special residence. Amtico flooring is both visually appealing and hard wearing. Panelled walls with glass panelled doors leading to the open plan kitchen and living space.

Open Plan Living/Dining Area: c. 4.24m x c. 5.96m
This room is flooded with natural light as it benefits from dual aspect on both ends. The views to the front are sublime with the pier on your doorstep and the ocean framed by a bay window. This is one of the many things that set this location apart. Amtico flooring in the living area leads to the tiled kitchen area which was fully renovated by the current owner.

Kitchen Area: c. 3.77m x 3.50m
The kitchen has been fitted with bespoke Robert Mooney kitchen with clever colouring and an island unit. Marble countertops and splashbacks add a real sense of luxury without compromising on practicality. The island unit acts as a raised breakfast bar with built in storage around it. This kitchen is cleanly laid out so is both visually appealing and functional. A smart feature is the instant boiler tap which makes for a constant flow of boiling water. Stainless steel Smeg oven and hob, Stainless steel Liebherr fridge/freezer and Smeg integrated dishwasher. Recessed lighting and double drainer sink with mixer taps. Sliding glass door to the balcony.

A superb feature of a more mature build is the well-set balcony. This is a calm space to the rear and has clever tiling that matches that in the kitchen but is specifically for outdoor use, thus making it practical. A storage closet houses the dryer and gas boiler.

Bedroom 1 (Main): c. 3.04m x 4.75m
Wraparound built in wardrobes, recessed lighting and climate control. Double doors lead to a Juliet balcony looking to the rear of the development which is calm, quiet and has mature greenery and rock garden on the landscaped grounds.

En Suite: c. 2.20m x 1.61m
Tiled walls and floor, w/c, built in wash hand basin with built in cabinet. Stainless steel heated towel rail, bath with shower attachment.

Bedroom 2: c. 2.56m x 3.75m
This is a superb room with a window to the front that has beautiful views all the way out to Howth as well as the pier directly across the road. Built in wardrobes, clever built in shelving, built in study desk and bespoke fitted bedroom furniture.

Bathroom: c. 1.88m x 2.45m
This room has a clever storage closet behind the door that is plumbed for a washing machine. W/c, walk in shower and fitted vanity on door. Marble surround with sunken sink. A special mention must go to the attic accessed via Stira with oodles of storage. This is a fantastic bonus to a property like this.


To the front there is allocated parking for one car and mature greenery. This property is in an exclusive setting that has one the best views a discerning purchaser could hope for. To the rear is a quiet, mature lawns with an access to Glasthule Village which is directly behind this low-density development.


If travelling from Dun Laoghaire DART station, continue on Crofton Road merging onto Queen's Road. Follow this road for about 500m onto Marine Parade. St. Helen's will be on the right.
