Residential enclave set back from N11

Four-bedroom semi-detached property in Blackrock for €655,000

Treesdale is a mature estate hidden behind the Talbot Hotel in Mount Merrion.

Formerly the Stillorgan Park Hotel, it was once home to a nightclub that may have given residents sleepless nights, but that is now gone and all is much quieter in the estate, which was built by Jackson Homes in 1996.

The development is far more suburban in feel than you would think, given its proximity to the busy N11. A set of goals has been installed on the small green where a swing also hangs from a secure tree.

The owners bought number 37 Treesdale in 2000 and made minor changes, adding stone tiles to the hall and installing terracotta tiles in the kitchen-cum-diningroom, a room that spans the width of the property.


The kitchen has painted cream units and polished granite worktops. French windows open from the diningroom area to the garden or you can exit from the kitchen via a uPVC conservatory that makes the most of the garden’s northwesterly aspect.

Painted a restful sage green with polished floorboards, it is where many of the neighbours have extended out to create a larger open-plan room.

The house has good storage in an under-the-stairs cloakroom and a guest toilet as well as a utility cupboard in the kitchen.

The formal sittingroom to the front is a large, bright room with a coal-effect gas fire and double doors through to the rear.

While the garden is really only a city-sized one, there is the potential to extend the property, subject to getting the appropriate planning permission.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three doubles and a single. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom.

Outside, there is also off-street parking for one car.

The house which measures 127sq m (1367sq ft) is asking €655,000 through agent DNG.
