DescriptionThe most desirable property in the most desirable location in the town? It is not very often that circumstances coalesce so that the opportunity to purchase a magnificent coastal home with private access to the beach through a gorgeous botanical garden incorporating a lifetimes work, yet here we are!! John & Anita have spent 20 years blending and shaping this house and garden and now they relish the chance to do it all again - hence a unique opportunity to acquire that final, special place you will call “home”.
Originally known as 5 St. Claire's Villas, colloquially known as 5 Soldiers or Sailors Cottages and now 5 Skerries Road, you may think the property suffers from an identity crisis - it really doesn't. This property knows exactly what it is and exactly what it delivers! Originally built in the 1920's for ex-service men, each cottage came with 0.5 acre so the occupants could be self-sufficient. In modern times these wonderful houses benefit from c. 0.5 acre bringing you directly to the sea shore via private beach access and the gardens… sometimes words are not enough.
The property is close to Balbriggan Town Centre with a wide range of amenities, superb shopping facilities and an excellent public transport infrastructure including Dublin Bus, Bus Eireann and Suburban Rail access to Dublin City Centre (c. 45mins). Rich in history, Balbriggan has been one of the fastest growing towns in Ireland in recent years and has now one of the youngest populations, €20million has been ring-fenced by the elected council of Fingal County Council to support the rejuvenation of Balbriggan in its 2019 - 2021 Capital Budget.
