DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are privileged to offer this magnificent and much admired 1840's Victorian Villa on the well renowned Avoca Avenue. With its beautiful and striking cut stone facade, this was once the home of the distinguished Irish artist Sean O'Sullivan RHA (1906-1964). This spacious two storey family home retains all the original period charm and character synonymous of its time along with every modern comfort a family might require. A most impressive feature is the glorious and private sunny rear garden extending to just over 0.2 acres approx, with a separate home office / studio. To the front of the property there is generous off-street parking for multiple cars with a garage to the side, offering car storage. This home has everything you could wish for and more.
Situated on Avoca Avenue, widely regarded as Blackrock's premier residential road, Headford Cottage benefits from being within walking distance of the seafront at Blackrock and Seapoint. This area is serviced by excellent transport links with the Dart, N11 QBC and M50 located close by. In addition to a variety of recreational activities there is a wide choice of shops, restaurants and boutiques in Blackrock village, Dun Laoghaire and Stillorgan. This area is also home to many of Dublin's best regarded schools, including Blackrock College, St. Andrew's College, Mount Anville, Sion Hill, Coláiste Iosagáin, Coláiste Eoin and Carysfort National School, to name a few. Smurfit Business School and UCD Belfield are also close by.
