17 Priory Avenue is an instantly appealing and sizeable family home. It is extremely well located on this deservedly popular avenue in a mature and much sought after location in Blackrock. The property is very well set back from the road and has been beautifully extended to the rear to incorporate an award winning architecturally designed extension by Duffy Mitchell Architects as well as boasting a very spacious and well laid out attic conversion, completed approximately twenty years ago.
The welcoming accommodation is exceptionally well laid out and benefits from extensive natural light throughout. It is no wonder that it received not one but two architectural awards, one from the RIAI and the second from the AAI as well as featuring on RTE’s About The House. The RIAI applauded the overall transformation as “sublime” and described as “superb” the “control and use of natural light” and “the attention to detail, selection of material, and division of space”. Also noted was how “the extension of garden into living area through thoughtful selection of materials and landscape design further enhances the living space”
Constructed in the 1940’s by Sisk Contractors as a home for one of their company directors, this property enjoys wonderful proportions with 9ft ceiling height. The accommodation briefly comprises of a welcoming reception hallway off which there is a study and a drawing room to the front, a guest WC, and to the rear of the property there is a magnificent open plan kitchen/living/dining room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful south westerly rear garden. This room benefits from 10ft ceiling heights creating an incredible sense of space and light. There is a large back kitchen or utility room at this level also. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master suite overlooking the rear with large walk in dressing area, sauna and en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom with jacuzzi bath at this level which has been cleverly designed to incorporate a frosted window on the southern gable end of the property. A large Velux window over the landing allows for an abundance of natural light through the central well of this lovely home. On the first floor there are two further large bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and both with excellent floored under-eaves storage. As previously mentioned, the exceptional rear garden is a sight to behold enjoying the perfect south westerly orientation and backing onto Priory Pitch & Putt. The garden benefits from a high degree of privacy the like of which would be difficult to better in this central location. There is also a separate versatile garage.
The rear garden is a sight to behold enjoying a perfect south westerly orientation. The sheltered patio area has a delightful water feature and raised beds planted with an array of mature plants, specimen shrubs and trees,. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid out in lawn bordered by well stocked flower beds with abundance of mature shrubs, trees and plants.
