Seldom does such a unique and historic home come to the market, let alone one in the heart of the idyllic sea side village of Blackrock. This magnificent, Victorian building dating back to 1880 was originally built as the Blackrock Royal Irish Constabulary Barracks and served for many years as the local barracks station for Blackrock and surrounds. This home exudes Victorian elegance with 21st century craftsmanship and a floor space of approx. 1910 sq. ft/177 sq. m. This, two storey, three bay property has been lovingly maintained and tastefully designed by its current owners and presented in turn-key condition. Upon entering, it is quite apparent that the standard of finish and the quality of this family home are second to none! The grand main door opening onto the reception hallway will immediately fill you with a sense of history, elegance and the charm that cannot be replicated in modern houses. The property comprises of welcoming entrance hallway with classic drawing room off the hallway to the right and spacious family sitting room to the left, both with impressive period solid fuel open fireplaces, leading to spacious kitchen/dining area with feature bay window, fully fitted designer kitchen with all modern conveniences, plumbed utility room and downstairs W.C. Moving from the utility outside, there is a stunning courtyard area reminiscent of The Secret Garden, palm trees, ferns Sandstone decorative design patio and if you look closely enough you will see the remains of the cells that formed part of the original Barracks! The property stands on approximately 0.25 acres of beautiful grounds, bounded by mature lime and chestnut trees. The addition of an external store room which was fully renovated in recent years has many purposes, currently used for storage but can easily be transformed into a home office or games room. This is certainly a landmark property in the Village of Blackrock and one that will create an enormous amount of interest from locals and further afield, we highly recommend viewing.
