DescriptionJanet Carroll Estate Agents are delighted to introduce to the market this lovely four bedroomed home that has been happily lived in by the same family for 60 years. Located in a peaceful cul-de-sac, off Mount Merrion Avenue, Blackrock. Few may realise this road is there - the setting is ideal - with a small number of long established, well-proportioned homes and charming mature gardens.
No 4 Southwood Park has an impressive beautifully secluded, south-west facing back-garden offering much space for enjoyment for young and old.
The village itself has been transformed in recent months with a new one-way system in the main street, cycle lanes and outdoor seating and re-designed planting. This has encouraged local restaurants to create outdoor space allowing people to stroll through the village and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Both the Blackrock Shopping Centre and Frascati Center have recently undergone impressive upgrades.
There is huge potential for modernisation and expansion to achieve the ideal family home close to both primary and secondary schools and the many amenities of Blackrock.
