Smartly kitted-out home slap bang in centre of Blackrock
With the spotlight firmly on climate change, everybody is trying to come up with ways to recycle more and use energy less. We all know that tumble dryers are a big culprit when it comes to energy usage, but who wants a clothes-horse full of damp items taking up space in the living room?
The owners of 17 Rock Road have come up with a solution to this problem, but you need to look up to find it. On the landing they have a custom-built drying rack that can be raised and lowered as needed, meaning no more undies drying out for all to see.
They have made use of every corner of the 660sq ft house. The living room has been fitted with shelves and units, while the kitchen has been cleverly fitted around two walls, providing plenty of space for storage and appliances.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a small back yard outside that has enough space to store bicycles and bins.

The location of the house, slap-bang in the centre of Blackrock village, is sure to appeal to young buyers who like the idea of having good restaurants and cafés on their doorstep.
Popular with locals are Ciamei Italian, 3 Leaves and El Celler in the market, or Michelin-starred Liath for those lucky enough to get a seat. Outside of the market, there's Rage, The Wooden Spoon and The Mellow Fig.
If staying in is on the cards, there's a SuperValu in Blackrock Shopping Centre, and an Aldi and Marks & Spencer in the Frascati Centre. There is also an organic supermarket on the main street.
No 17 is a 10-minute walk to both Booterstown and Blackrock Dart stations.
Rock Road is on the market for €475,000 with selling agent Janet Carroll Estate Agents (01 288 2020).
