17 Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock, €1.45m
Much like generations of teachers who attended the former training college there, Carysfort Avenue stretches almost from Stillorgan down to Main Street in Blackrock.
Located at the Blackrock end, No17 earns top marks for its proximity to the pubs, restaurants and craft cafes of Dublin’s south suburbs. These include nearby hostel The Blackrock (formerly the Three Tun Tavern), which was acquired earlier this year by rugby stars Jamie Heaslip, Seán O’Brien and Rob and Dave Kearney for an alleged €2.5million. The main street of the village is on the doorstep, as is the redeveloped Frascati Center with its M&S Food Hall, Aldi supermarket and other shops.
Nothing comes quite as close to the amenities of bustling seaside suburban living as this double fronted, end terraced historic home. In fact, for years the property was a local attraction in its own right, while doubling as a private residence and commercial art gallery. With its central location attracting much passer-by and the added bonus of off-street parking for seven cars, No17 could continue to serve as a combined commercial and residential building for new owners or be converted into a large family home.
At garden level there is a self-contained apartment with a kitchen, living room, bedroom and shower room. On the ground floor there is a storage room and four reception rooms with roller shutter windows. The living area above on the first floor comprises a living room, a kitchen, three bedrooms, a shower room and a separate toilet.
Named after Henry Cary, Lord Deputy of Ireland from 1601 to 1622, Carysfort Avenue is just 15 minutes from the city center on the Dart. However, the district has a distinctly village atmosphere with its park, restaurants, shops, schools and weekend market. No17 is on the market with Janet Carroll (01) 288 2020 for €1.45m.
