DescriptionA truly exceptional detached family home which has been cleverly extended and remodelled to provide superb and very flexible family living with a spacious floor area of 211 sq.m/2271 sq.ft. The impressive extensions were completed by the current owners in two separate projects. The first in 2011 included a stunning kitchen extension to the rear which is flooded in natural light from feature height floor to ceiling glazing of 2.7m. A self-contained studio with its own front door access was also included in this project which is ideal for teenager/au pair/elderly relative accommodation. This unit also qualifies for the rent a room tax relief scheme for a clever home and income option (up to €14,000 pa). The second extension was completed in late 2017 which created five bedrooms at first floor level incorporating a gorgeous master suite. The accommodation is in stunning condition throughout with a real sense of space and light briefly comprising at ground floor level; entrance hallway, guest w.c., t.v. room/study, living room, open plan kitchen/dining/family room, utility room, self-contained studio to side (incorporating kitchenette/bedroom/en suite with own front door access). There are five bedrooms at first floor level, a main family bathroom and the master suite has a feature vaulted ceiling which really adds to the sense of space with an en suite bathroom. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with excellent off-street car-parking to the front and a very private aspect to the secluded rear garden.
The location is excellent, in a sleepy cul de sac off Newtownpark Avenue in Blackrock, with an abundance of amenities within easy reach. The new Dunnes Stores, quite literally on the doorstep, is a big selling point with nearby local shops including a pharmacy and the Wishing Well pub within a short stroll on Newtown Park. There are tennis courts and a children’s playground in nearby Mount Albany/Springhill Park and Newpark Sports and Music Centre is within an easy walk. Many local well-regarded schools are within a short walk including Holly Park Boys and Girls primary schools, The French School, Carysfort National school, CBC Monkstown and Loreto Foxrock Secondary school. The number 114 bus to Blackrock is very convenient and the number 4 services the rear of Richmond from Blackrock College. The nearby N11 provides ease of access to a variety of other schools including St. Michael’s, Oatlands College, The Teresians and St. Andrews to name a few. Viewing of this superb family home is highly recommended to appreciate all it has to offer.
