"Killeen" is a wonderfully handsome double-fronted Edwardian red brick home ideally positioned in the heart of Blackrock. Built in 1906, the property has been lovingly maintained by its current owners who have lived here for 25 years. The property is full of character with many original features including cast iron fireplaces, ceiling roses, cornicing and exposed original floor boards. There are granite steps leading to the hall door which is surrounded by beautiful stained glass leading to the entrance hall. There are sash windows, most of which have been sympathetically double glazed. The accommodation has been extended to the rear and provides a bright spacious floor area of approximately 234 sq.m/2518 sq.ft. to include entrance hallway, guest cloaks, drawing room, dining room, family room, study/fifth bedroom with shower room off, kitchen/dining area, utility room, shower room and a large pantry. Upstairs are four generous double bedrooms, a family bathroom with cast iron bath and a separate toilet. The gardens are wonderful with the 70 foot garden to the rear adjoining the grounds of Blackrock Lawn Bowling and Tennis Club from which it is separated by a lovely granite wall. The garden to the front displays a mixed variety of stunning rose bushes through the summer season and a shared vehicular driveway which provides access to a garage at the rear of the property.
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 and leisure pursuits. 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 when all the building work is complete there will be branches of no fewer than three supermarkets: SuperValu, M&S and Aldi. The village itself is home to some great shops and cafés not to mention the 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. Dunne and Crescenzi in Blackrock Shopping Centre is also popular. 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, is within a stroll to enjoy. Viewing of this fine family home is strongly recommended.
