Located off Carrickhill Road in Portmarnock, No. 28 The Quarry holds a unique place in Irish history as it was once occupied by the Irish TV presenter Eamonn Andrews & his family. Back in the early 70's they purchased this unique house, a single storey, flat roofed building dating from the 1940's and perched on the edge of the disused stone quarry which was part of the property. They asked the well renowned Architect Sam Stephenson to redesign their home. The architect cleverly retained the initial house and incorporated it into a unique & spectacular new home. Although the grounds of the house have become part of small niche development of apartments, the main house remains as unique & stylish as ever. Whilst retaining some of the original features of double height ceilings & floor to ceiling windows that take full advantage of the south facing orientation, the house has been lovingly restored & reconfigured for modern living & now boasts a B2 energy rating. The refurbishment included a rewire with ample sockets & wall lights & lighting on the staircase completes the ambience. A full re-plumbing of the house provides for 4 modern bathrooms, new high output radiators and a highly efficient condensing boiler. New carpets and wooden floors have been fitted along with a new kitchen with island unit. All the double bedrooms have chrome mirrored sliding wardrobes. The whole property has been tastefully decorated throughout, with € farrow and ball € paint colours and timber wall panelling adding to the style. The stylish accommodation extends to almost 2000 square feet and now comprises of porch entrance opening up to a very bright & spacious living room with mezzanine. Steps lead down to the newly fitted kitchen/dining room with sun terrace off. There are three double bedrooms (two with ensuite & balconies) a family bathroom & guest w.c plus a family room at mezzanine level. Further features include double glazed windows, gas fired radiator central heating with new boiler & communal permit parking. Superbly located in a quiet unique setting yet within easy access to schools, shops & public transport.
