Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 176 m²
A most attractive circa 1880 s Victorian residence in need of extensive modernisation and upgrading but offering enormous potential to be transformed into a splendid family home, located on one of the most desirable avenues in Blackrock. A big feature of this fine property is the delightful c. over 170 feet south-west facing rear garden, with the original two storey Coach house offering development potential (subject to planning permission) with rear yard and vehicular access out onto Green Road. This character filled home which has been in the same family since 1955 offers a great opportunity to put one s own stamp and make it their dream home as have many of the neighbouring properties along this avenue. The handsome fa ade is gently framed by a neat, railed garden to the front with off street parking. Beyond the hall door, the entrance hall, gives access to the large formal reception room which runs from front to rear. The room overlooks the front garden, sash window with original window shutters, it also has a feature marble fireplace. To the rear is the dining room which has timber panelled ceiling and that leads to the pantry and kitchen in the return with door out to the rear garden. On the first floor there is a main bathroom with storage and bedroom 1. On the first floor the accommodation is completed by three double bedrooms, and a box room. To the rear of the house there is a beautiful 173ft south-west facing garden surrounded by old granite walls laid out mainly in lawn and bordered by a profusion of plants, various shrubs and trees. A real haven of seclusion and privacy, it offers the discerning purchaser superb potential to put on a large extension to the rear (as neighbouring houses have done) subject to planning permission. The location could hardly be more convenient, it is within walking distance of Blackrock Village, two shopping centres, the DART, Blackrock Park and the seafront. The City Centre is approximately 6km away and the N11 with QBC is accessible from the top of Mount Merrion Avenue. Excellent schools abound in the area; these include some of Dublin s finest schools: Blackrock College, Willow Park School, Booterstown National, Carysfort National, St Andrew s College, Sion Hill to name but a few. UCD and Smurfit Business school are also nearby. This is a superb family home in an unrivalled location.
