Description**Both physical & virtual viewings are available by appointment**
A prime example of a classic early Victorian terraced family residence built c.1850 which has been lovingly maintained, modernised and improved to produce a home of considerable class, style and elegance perfectly positioned on Avoca Road, one of Blackrock's most sought after residential locations.
A flight of granite steps brings you to the hall door which opens to an impressive entrance hall with perfectly preserved decorative cornicing. On the right hand side you enter two generously proportioned formal reception rooms which are interlinked with folding doors and benefit from period marble fireplaces, decorative cornicing and centre roses, shuttered windows of which the east facing window overlooks the parkland to the front. At the end of the hall in the return is a cosy office which opens via a French door to a raised patio, an ideal spot for taking the evening sunshine and a flight of steps from here which brings you neatly to the rear garden.
At garden level there is a separate front entrance with marble tiled floors and a bank of storage cupboards as well as a wine store / cave under the front steps. To the right of the hall and to the front of the house is a family / TV room which leads directly to the kitchen / breakfast room which has been fully kitted out with floor and wall mounted units, a movable island, a marble tiled floor and the full range of white goods. A most attractive feature of this area is the beautiful arched windows and glazed doors which lead directly to the rear patio and garden which also floods the kitchen with natural light. At the end of the hall there is a shower room and a well-equipped laundry which also has access to the garden. On the first return is a beautifully finished family bathroom while the flight of stairs to the first floor is lit by a well-placed Velux window and leads us to the five family bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room and a walk in wardrobe.
Externally to the front is a railed and hedged garden with mature trees and a pedestrian pathway leading to the main entrance and the lower entrance under the front steps. To the rear is an extensive westerly garden laid out in patio and herbaceous borders with mature trees and a variety of fruiting plants. Most importantly there is a full vehicular rear entrance with ample parking with access via a side lane which is protected by automatic security gates at the end of the terrace.
