Rhatigan Real Estate presents this fabulous 2 bedroom terraced house in Blackrock for sale by private treaty. If you have been trawling property after property online hoping to find the right one for you, stop right now! In our humble opinion, this is a truly superb example of a simple space, cleverly laid out and used to its fullest without having to pay a management fee.
Orchard Lane set off Newtown Park, is a very unassuming setting lined with a charming mix of houses from mews style to cottages. One feels quite removed from the surrounds when on Orchard Lane, without compromising on amenities. The local area has gone from strength to strength in recent years. If we look firstly at the immediate location, Dunnes Stores' investment in the former Playwright site has shown their belief in the area. It has further cemented this part of Blackrock as being both well-serviced and well-rounded from a lifestyle perspective. If you like all things cakes and coffee, then you need to look no further than the corner at the top of the Lane. Fable and Stey have been yet another business to thrive in the vicinity and locals love that it is nearby and in keeping with the funky vibe that this area has to offer. Looking at Blackrock from a broader perspective, you have not one but two shopping centres undergoing superb upgrades and will no doubt enhance the lifestyle of those benefiting from Blackrock as their home. The village itself is really standing out with an incredible host of boutique shops, cafes and a new bar owned by some international rugby players of note.
13 Orchard Lane affords people the chance to buy a unique 2-bedroom space with buses, link roads and amenities nearby. An added benefit of being owner occupied is it may well appeal to those seeking to invest in a rental property with no rental cap or indeed a Dublin pad if based further afield or abroad.
This house is quite simply, fun, funky and is bound to appeal to those who want a no-nonsense own-door residence in one of the most sought-after addresses in South Dublin.

The owners invested in a beautiful door that provides a welcoming tone as you enter. A frosted window welcomes natural light while maintaining privacy.
Kitchen / Living Room
This is a house that makes the most of the space it has and in this case, an open plan arrangement for the kitchen and living room works very well. Laminate flooring is hardwearing and practical and the owners created a visually appealing kitchen area with an emphasis on storage. Integrated fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, induction hob, extractor fan, Belfast sink and dishwasher. There is room for a comfy sofa and neat dining table (as the owners have proved!)
Door to the rear courtyard space
Set off the kitchen, this room is bigger than you may think and the owners set about maximising the space they had by putting in slide robes. Fitted carpet and a window to the rear.
This is set to the other side of the living room and as the old tank was removed when the new and improved combi gas boiler was installed, this made another usable space for this clever couple. One could stack a washer and dryer in here or use it for additional laundry or household storage if they wish
(appliances not included in the sale)
From the photos, you can guess that the owner's housemate is in the form of their little baby. Even still this room has ample space for a bed, daybed or office set-up should one wish, so it is versatile.
This room has been upgraded with ornate tiling to draw the eye, underfloor heating, wall-hung concealed cistern toilet, wash hand basin with storage and a mains fed shower in a wet room style configuration. A special mention goes to an inset storage space on a slide rail that sits behind the mirror and is both fun and clever!
The rear courtyard is small but practical. One could have morning coffee or dry clothes out there as well as keep some potted plants and flowers if they wish. To the front, there is unmetered parking
