New house on the coast in Duncannon, Co.Wexford with panoramic sea views. Completed by Fergus Flanagan Architects in 2019.
The site was elevated with magnificent views and over looked the Barrow estuary which separates the counties of Wexford and Waterford.
This is a sensitive site in planning terms and in order to get this over the line with the planning department we had to prove that the new house wound not be an intrusive feature on the landscape. We achieved this by creating a single story flat roofed home which is nestled into the slope.
The home is designed in such a way that all of the living spaces have a sea view.
All of the service areas of the house such as the bathrooms, laundry rooms, storage rooms were located to the north of the main spine that connected all of the living spaces. In order to take away from a design which could look elongated we have employed a subtle curve in the external walls.
We also break this elongation with the use of the garage to the front and a covered terrace to the rear. Strategically positioning the garage to the front of the house gives us the opportunity of creating a car port between the garage and the main entrance. The garage also houses an external coat and boot store for items like muddy boots coats etc and it houses a sink for washing these items. The garage also contains the plant room. The house has two covered terrace areas, one of the east side of the house off the main living area. The second one is located off the main family room. This way we are following the movement of the sun and ensuring that the family can enjoy the outdoor beauty of this site.
The entrance hall separates the public spaces and the bedroom wing – Private and Public spaces. The Master Bedroom is located at the end of the house and contains both a
large walk-in-wardrobe and a master en-suite. The bath itself has a sea view from the bath. We have also created a small private covered area off the bedroom to sit and read.
The end result is a beautiful family home that is transfixed on the magnificent views of the site and a home that will suit any climate.
