4 Bed Period House 162.3 m² / 1747 ft² For Sale C2


DNG McKenna Healy are proud to bring to the market this wonderful four bedroom period home in the heart of Skerries town. No.1 Church Street (‘Roancarrig’) has been lovingly restored, renovated and extended by the current owners and is presented in pristine condition. While retaining many original features, such as cast iron fireplaces, high ceilings, shutters, solid wood doors and floors, to name but a few, it also beautifully connects to a contemporary high-end extension to the rear of the house. Built in approx. 1910, this warm and comfortable home has been upgraded and modernised to enjoy a strong efficiency energy rating.

The double fronted home hosts spacious well-proportioned living accommodation comprising a beautiful entrance porch and hallway, main reception room, a bright spacious extended kitchen cum dining room, home office and fourth bedroom. Clever architectural design provides two courtyard areas connecting the original house to the new extended rear allowing natural light to flood the kitchen and dining area. A wet room and utility room complete the ground floor. On the first-floor return is a main bathroom with separate WC, while the first floor hosts three large double bedrooms.

The garden is an oasis of peace and tranquillity surrounded by beautiful stone walls, mature shrubbery and flower beds with a charming patio area ideal for al fresco dining. A large stone built shed provides plenty of storage. It could be an ideal workshop or converted to a granny flat/office, subject to the necessary planning permission. Vehicle access is provided for at the rear of the house along with a further garden shed.

Church Street is conveniently located in the centre of Skerries town benefiting from a great choice of amenities within touching distance, with North Strand beach just two minutes’ walk through the pretty back lanes. Sports facilities abound in the immediate area with Golf, Sailing, Rugby, GAA and Tennis clubs all close to hand. The area is well serviced by Dublin Rail and bus with both services within easy walking distance of Roancarrig.
Skerries is located approx. 12 miles from Dublin airport and M1 motorway, providing an easy commute to the City Centre.
