DescriptionFOR SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY
Apartment 5 Avoca House
Janet Carroll Estate Agents are delighted to offer for sale this magnificent home within a highly-attractive, period-style building, located at the Blackrock-end of Avoca Avenue, one of the most prestigious roads in South County Dublin.
Avoca House was formerly a grand Victorian dwelling dating from the 1870's, but substantially reconstructed in the early 1990's, providing just six 2-bedroom, own-door homes. It offers all the features of a period property, but within a modern structure.
Apartment 5 is positioned on the top floor, thereby affording it tall ceilings throughout, with pretty, sylvan views to the front over Smurfit Business School, and a quiet and peaceful vista to the rear over the roofs of neighbouring homes and towards Dublin bay.
The over-sized front door is located at the top of the gracious, granite front steps; once inside, the private entrance hall and stairs lead to a bright and elegant hallway, off which are all the main rooms of the apartment, with light streaming in from front and back. The apartment extends to 84 sq.m / 904 sq.ft (the main floor is c.81 sq.m, with c.3.0 sq.m at entry level), plus over-stairs store room and attic storage. The rear balcony stretches across the width of the apartment, capturing the afternoon and evening sun.
This meticulously-presented home offers a unique opportunity for the lucky purchaser to own a period-style gem, which was further refurbished in 2019 by its architect owner, incorporating many mod-cons and luxury finishes: oak herringbone flooring throughout, rainfall shower heads, concealed led accent lighting etc.
This property will be of interest to owner-occupiers and investors alike, due to its prime location just a stroll to Blackrock village, and directly across from the renowned UCD Smurfit Business School. There are excellent transportation links nearby (DART and buses). Two car-parking spaces are available for each apartment, to the front or gated to the rear.

- Contemporary shower rooms, with underfloor heating and rainfall shower heads;
