DescriptionSeldom does a home of this quality come to the market which conceals superb internal craftmanship throughout. Located in the heart of Blackrock, just off both Mount Merrion Avenue and Frascati Road lies No. 8 Frascati Park, a fully refurbished 1930's family home boasting 170sqm / 1830 sqft approx. plus an additional 18sqm / 200sqft of floored attic space, perfect for further expansion.
Granite steps lead to the hall door which in turn opens to a bright hallway with Oak flooring. To the right is the living room with its' distinctive square bay reflecting southerly light from the front. Across the hall is a generous size study with Oak flooring. Undoubtedly the wow feature is the immensely bright and spacious contemporary kitchen with large Travertine style tiles creating a fresh clean line, a centre island with prep sink and underfloor heating. The room benefits from large double sliding doors opening out onto the garden and patio area. This entire open space oozes character with smart high gloss wall and floor units off set by chrome kicker boards, contemporary handles and extractor fan. It is well equipped with Siemens freezer, double oven and an integrated Liebher fridge, Baumatic coffee machine and stainless steel sink, drainer and worktops. The utility area is cleverly concealed with provision for washing machine and tumble dryer positioned behind the storage units. A living area is configured beside the kitchen and relaxes into a classic contemporary family area cleverly delineated with Oak flooring, fitted presses and book shelving as well as an open fireplace for warmth and focus. A guest wc is positioned on a small return off the hall. Upstairs the galleried landing is bright and opens to four bedrooms. The main bedroom is choicely positioned to the front of the house enjoying a square bay and south facing orientation. It benefits from an en-suite bathroom with a large shower, whb and wc. The luxuriously appointed family bathroom enjoys a bath and separate shower, whb and wc.
The front garden is tastefully landscaped with silver granite broken up in symmetrical pattern with loose gravel neatly framed with a cobble stone border. Behind a wooden gate and railing are three perfectly formed bay leaf trees which mirror the shape of the neatly trimmed topiary buxus which decorate the house to the front and are in keeping and echo the overall pristine nature of the house throughout. The rear garden is partly in lawn with neatly clipped laurel hedges off set by bamboo and large paviers leading to the barna hut which is neatly disguised behind a delicate trellis. A laurel hedge to the back provides a natural opaque wall and privacy. Steps lead down to the sunken patio area with further privacy and shelter provided by a wall of topiary. The patio is paved with sunken lighting which leads seamlessly from the kitchen area blurring the lines from inside and out.
