Grace beyond its years

Price: €2.6M
Where: Rue de Bac, Avoca Ave, Blackrock, Co Dublin
Details: Five-bedroom detached on 0.3 acres

Belying its recent 2005 vintage, Rue de Bac, Avoca Ave, Blackrock, Co Dublin, is finished with the grace of a much older property.

Both its drawing and dining rooms come with period marble fireplaces, decorative cornicing and centre roses.

The former also benefits from a bay window, while the dining room and TV room have French doors opening on to the rear garden.

With touches of a villa style, it was architecturally designed specifically with someone downsizing in mind, while maintaining all the proportions of the larger home.

Set behind electronically controlled gates on a 0.3-acre site, its walled gardens enjoy a rear south-westerly aspect and shelter from mature trees.

Its 325sqm of accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room with Shaker-style units and a gas-fired Aga as well as a Neff electric double oven and gas hob.

The home's workspace is supplemented by a utility room. Also at ground level is an en suite bedroom.

At first-floor level, there are four bedrooms, three of which are en suite. These include the master bedroom, which is decorated in a period style and has a bay window and a dressing room. All bathrooms have under-floor heating.

A room at basement level is used for storage, but has possibilities as a gym or playroom.

Situated on one of Blackrock's most sought-after residential roads, close to the village and all its amenities, it is within easy reach of the DART link as well as a fine range of local shops.
