Good as new in Blackrock for €1.3m

Spacious Mount Merrion Avenue family home in turnkey condition

 

The Woodview development was constructed in 2003 by Jackson Homes, and consists of a number of luxury duplex apartments, penthouses and three houses.

Number 3 has the distinction of being the only detached property in the development, which is situated at the junction of Mount Merrion and Cross Avenues.

The house was originally for sale in 2003 with a €1.2 million price tag, and now in turnkey condition is asking €1.3 million through agent Sherry FitzGerald, as the current owners are trading up.

The only inkling the 198sq m (2,131 sq ft) property is 13 years old is given by the mature plants in the rear garden – such is the condition of the interiors, which have been staged for sale by The Interiors Project.

The house is remarkably bright – thanks to large windows and the fact that every room to the rear opens out on to the southwest facing garden.

Guest bedroom

The highlight is the guest bedroom on the second floor. Taking up the entire width of the house, the dual-aspect room, is almost 28sq m in size and overlooks the old chestnut trees in the communal garden alongside the property.

Four further bedrooms – three fine doubles and a small single are in great condition and lie off the spacious hallway on the first floor.

An interconnecting dining and livingroom – separated by French doors – is at hall level, and features recessed lighting, a white limestone fireplace and high ceilings.

Privacy

Adjacent is a galley-style kitchen hand-painted in an off white by Farrow and Ball, with a seven-ring Stoves range set in a bullnose-black granite counter.

At one end of the kitchen is a breakfast room, and the other is occupied by a floodlit family room. The rear garden is private and stretches to 18m.

Though not as spacious as some of the period houses on Mount Merrion Avenue, the grounds of the development are meticulously maintained and feature seasonal planting, pergolas bathed in climbers and lots of mature trees.

The property has two designated car parking spaces, with visitor parking around the corner. Maintenance fees are €700 per annum.
