Houses at Clontarf, Dublin, exterior

"Flat Roofs and Balconies on Dublin's Sea-front"

"These houses form a striking contrast with their surroundings and have successfully challenged the ambitions of purchasers who believe that fresh air, sunshine and scenery are at least as important feature in domestic life as are the internal comforts of conventional suburban villadom.......constructed of mass concrete with special inner linings, they were finished externally with "Snowcrete" stucco........ .... on the ground floor are two reception rooms, hall and external porch, kitchen,larder, fuel store and a garage at the side. On the first floor, three bedrooms, bathroom, WC, and a balcony approached by glass and steel doors off the landing. All rainwater is carried off at the rear..."
