DescriptionCarrig Baun is an aesthetically pleasing double fronted mid-terraced single storey over garden level double bay windowed Victorian period residence positioned on one of the finest roads in Dalkey. It is only a few minutes' walk from the superb amenities in Dalkey Town Centre, the DART and the seafront.
This stunning property oozes charm and character and its bright and airy wonderfully proportioned accommodation extends to approximately 195sq.m (2,100sq.ft) and has been very well-maintained throughout. It comes to the market in excellent decorative order. The property is an upside down house with the living accommodation upstairs to take full advantage of the wonderful sea views, whilst the bedroom accommodation is at garden level. The nature and design of double fronted houses are such that in general all of the rooms are symmetrical and of the same size.
A particular feature of Carrig Baun is the large balcony at first floor level that is accessed off the kitchen and dining room and spans the entire width of the house. From its elevated position it provides stunning sea views across to Howth and the Kish Bank Lighthouse with glimpses of Snowdonia National Park in Wales on very clear days. To the front wrought iron vehicular gates open into secure gravelled off street parking for a number of cars, a complete rarity in Dalkey. The rear garden is very private and not overlooked. It is bordered by high hedging, trees and planting and is laid out in lawn. The garden measures approximately 29m (95ft) in length.
Rockfort Avenue connects Sorrento Road with Coliemore Road and is positioned right in the heart of the Heritage Town of Dalkey. Dalkey is one of the most appealing sought after locations in South County Dublin to live in, as it is surrounded by a wide selection of primary and secondary schools including Loreto Abbey Dalkey, Castle Park and the Harold National School whilst the DART in the town services Blackrock College, St. Andrew's College, St. Michael's College and the city centre. Dalkey provides a plethora of local and specialist shops, cafes, delicatessens, bars and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin.
Carrig Baun is a short stroll from Coliemore Harbour and the hugely popular Vico bathing area. It enjoys scenic tranquil walks along the seafront and over Dalkey/Killiney hills. There are excellent sporting and recreation facilities to be enjoyed close by such as Cuala GAA/Dalkey United, tennis, hockey and rugby clubs with a host of fitness clubs and gyms also within close proximity. The four yacht clubs and extensive marina will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiast. Dalkey is also serviced by the 111 bus route and the Aircoach on Hyde Road services the airport hourly.
