Superbly presented in walk-in condition, this attractive semi-detached Edwardian red brick is ideally located on one of the most sought-after roads in Blackrock, backing onto the Blackrock Bowling and Tennis Club and only five minutes’ walk from Blackrock village and Dart station. Built in 1905, the property oozes character and retains many original features including ceiling roses, cornicing and exposed original floor boards. All of the windows have either been reconditioned or sympathetically replaced with wooden double glazed sash windows. The original footprint of the house has been extended and remodelled to create a stylish and comfortable family home which is flooded in natural light.
The accommodation of approximately 215 sq.m/2314sq.ft. includes, at ground floor level: entrance hallway, guest w.c., open plan drawing/dining room, open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room and utility room. The original house had four bedrooms, however the current owners cleverly reconfigured upstairs to three large double bedrooms with three bathrooms plus a large attic conversion.
The 70 foot garden to the rear is beautifully laid out and adjoins the grounds of Blackrock Bowling and Tennis Club from which it is separated by a lovely granite wall. The garden to the front is creatively landscaped with a nod to the Edwardian era.
Blackrock's popularity with families owes much to its fine selection of schools. Within walking distance of Green Road are Willow Park, Blackrock College, St Andrews and Carysfort National School. Colaiste Eoin and Iosagain, Booterstown National School and Holly Park are also close by with St. Michael’s, Teresians and Mount Anville a short bus ride away.
The area enjoys an abundance of amenities. The aforementioned Blackrock Bowling and Tennis Club is open to new members and has active junior and senior programmes, with camps and tournaments throughout the year. Blackrock Village is going through a wonderful regeneration and has no fewer than three supermarkets: SuperValu, M&S and Aldi. The village itself has no shortage of shops, cafés, gastro pubs and restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Heron & Grey and Indian Three Leaves, both located in Blackrock Market, which is also the location of Spanish restaurant, El Celler. Blackrock Station is on the Dart line, with a frequent service into the city centre and there are several bus routes that run along the Rock Road including the numbers 4 and 7. There are two convenient Aircoach stops at Mount Merrion Avenue and Frascati Shopping Centre. Blackrock Park (beside the sea) and Carysfort Park are both within a short stroll to enjoy.
All in all, a highly desirable home in one of Dublin’s most sought after areas. Viewing of this fine family home is strongly recommended.
