Beckett is a fine family home at 11 meters wide, this imposing double fronted five bedroom detached house extends to 287.7 sq.m. / 3,097 sq.ft. over two levels.
Beckett is named after one of Ireland’s most influential and aspirational, world renowned, literature artists, Samuel Beckett, who hailed from South Dublin. Crosthwaite Park has a very close bond with Irish literature artists as John Millington’s family home was on Crosthwaite Park for 16 years. The adjoining house to Beckett is called Millington after John Millington. Samuel Beckett was born and raised not far from Crosthwaite Park, in Foxrock.
Built by Red Rock Developments with exceptional attention-to-detail and designed by leading architects, Coady Architects, this ‘A’-rated traditional masonry-built family home comes with contemporary finishes throughout. Red Rock specifically appointed the award winning Coady Architects to design Beckett and Millington. The brief to Coady Architects was to “design two traditional houses but with a contemporary finish in order to be keeping with the style of the adjoining Áthnua which dates from the 1930’s”.
Outside you really get a feel for the contemporary finishes. The front elevation of the house comprises a mix of Vandersanden Toscane yellow brick, natural standing seam zinc, hardwood timber, granite and render.
The bay window is the centre piece to the front elevation. The high specification Vandersanden Toscane yellow brick, handmade and imported from Belguim is a unique feature for any newly built home in Dublin. There is a brick trim running around the entire lower perimeter of the house with full height sections of brick on two elevations.
To the rear, the single storey family room is an architectural masterpiece. With a natural standing seam zinc roof, the emphasis on the design of this space was to get as much light as possible into the room. This has been achieved with the majority of back elevation finished with two large pieces of glazing divided by a full height brick centrepiece. There is a full height double slider to the side where the family room opens out onto the garden and two windows along the third elevation bringing further light into the house.
Both the rear and front gardens are beautifully landscaped with a large rear patio. There is generous car parking to the front of the house. The gardens are separated by two-metre high concrete block walls.
