The home, known as 'Sunnyslopes' boasts the most incredible panoramic views over the Liffey Valley and the Dublin Mountains. The Edwardian style family home lies smack bang in the middle of Castleknock and Chapelizod villages and is adjacent to the Phoenix Park.

Looking out the front (or back?... we can't really tell), you are greeted by the sights and sounds of the River Liffey as it flows towards town as well as the Dublin Mountains looking over the south of the city. Imagine sitting here on a summer's day and watching the world pass by in front of you.

We suppose there's a teeny tiny chance we'll win the Lotto one day but for now we'll just have to make do with looking at the photos.
