Live the high life in Blackrock for €1.25m
Highfield is a luxurious four-bedroom house with private gardens and swimming pool
Highfield was built in 1983 on the grounds of the old orchard of Tudor Lodge, a period property next door. The site of just under half an acre included a swimming pool, which the original owners incorporated into the build. Originally sale agreed to the current owners in 2008 for €2.5m, the transaction was formally registered on the property price register in April 2013.
Following recent renovations this is now a fine family home standing at 240sq m (2,570sq ft) and including an outdoor pool, it comes on the market through estate agent Sherry FitzGerald for auction on May 21st with an AMV of €1.25 million.
The house, which is accessed though electric gates, is nestled back from the main road in mature private gardens with a carport leading directly into the utility.
There’s a relaxed elegance to the property which is clad in pointed sandstone with pale green wooden soffit and fascia. The interiors are painted a calming off-white.
Off a large hallway are two principal reception rooms. The livingroom has dual-aspect windows that cast a lovely light and a period marble fireplace. The ceiling plasterwork originally graced a house on Mountjoy Square. This, coupled with thick coving, gives the room a period feel.
The large Hettich kitchen features white high-gloss units with Nordmende integrated appliances and the “leathered” marble countertops extend around the room to include a breakfast bar. The dining area is off the kitchen with access to the garden for al fresco dining.
A guest bedroom on the ground floor is huge and could, if new owners wish, be used as a formal diningroom or further reception room.
Upstairs is where Highfield shines and what will really impress pospective buyers is the terrace which wraps around two sides of the property.
There is direct access to the heated swimming pool which will allow the new owners to descend directly from the bedroom to the pool for a morning dip.
The three en-suite bedrooms upstairs are all spacious and bright thanks to a large number of Velux windows.
Outside, the gardens have mature trees and some planting but there is huge scope to develop the rear garden further. The swimming pool lies elevated on a sundeck flanked by a terrace.
Highfield would make a lovely family home, the interior is exceptional with huge attention to detail, and that pool is just waiting to be enjoyed.
