About our home

This house was completed in April 2016 and is a very unique and wonderful home, designed by a renowned architect.

This house is large (200 sq.m.), luxurious, & located in a quiet enclave reasonable close to city.

The house is a family home, that is lived in by our family, however it is stylish and is used for fashion shoots & tv shows, design articles, newspaper articles.

All aspects of this house are designed by Tom DePaor. In 2017 the Royal Institute of British Architects awarded de Paor an international Fellowships for his work. In 2019 his work was been shortlisted in the BBC's World Architecture Festival.

The house has a large footprint which includes two large and fun, open plan living spaces; a lovely private rear garden; and 2 beautifully landscaped courtyards within the house.

The house has lots of luxury features; floor to ceiling windows and polished concrete floors with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, paintings throughout, free-standing sculptural fireplace, a wonderful kitchen, 2 lovely courtyards within the house, pond and lots of fish, a hot tub and much much more. Guests can use our hot tub, it's just an inflatable hot tub and has repairs in places, but works fine and is great fun.

There is a large master bed, with double shower, bathroom and courtyard ensuite. Upstairs there are three small bedrooms (approx. 7 meters squared each) upstairs and a private full bathroom (with shower, bath and toilet). 2 of these bedrooms have single loft beds and the other room has 2 single beds, so the house can accommodate 6 people. Also please know that the 2 bedrooms with loft beds, so are accessed by a ladder, so this wont suit all people particularly people with more limited agility.

The kitchen is stunning and very well equipped for entertaining and there is a barbecue in the rear garden.

The house is in a quiet residential area, so in respect of our neighbours we have a strict no party policy.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with 3 great fun children, who are like triplets, they are 10,10,8 years old.

  2. Kieran works in Venture Capital and Fiona works as a management consultant

  3. We love design and think our house reflects this. We love adventure and that's why we are seeking fun exchanges for school holidays and over the summer! Our house has a lovely design, but at it's heart it's laid back family home, which will love dearly :)
