Churches Estate Agents are delighted to present the wonderful Evergreen, a five bedroom detached house set in the idyllic Grove Lawn, a quiet cul-de-sac that must be one of Blackrock’s best addresses. Extending to over 2,000 sq ft across ground and first floor, the property provides generous living accommodation and five spacious bedrooms. A gorgeous South-West facing rear garden has the perfect aspect and is well-maintained with trim lawn and mature borders. The house has been maintained to a high standard but has great potential for modernisation and expansion (subject to planning permission).
Arriving at the landscaped front driveway and grand frontage, Evergreen presents the perfect Blackrock family home. A welcoming entrance hall brings you into the heart of the home. From there, the ground floor includes large front room (4.3m x 3.6m) featuring a spread of floor-to-ceiling windows, a traditional stone fireplace and great potential as dining room or family room. Across the hall there is another front-facing room (3.8m x 2.4m) which would be perfect for another family room or study.
Heading through to the rear of the house you are drawn into the very generous main living room (5.1m x 4.4m). This spacious room features high ceilings and a fantastic rear window stretching the entire back wall with views out over the vibrant greenery of the back garden. The living room also includes a bespoke stone fireplace.
To the other side of the hallway at the rear of the house is heart of the home, a warm kitchen with family dining area (4.4m x 3.6m). From the fully fitted kitchen you look out over the rear garden again, and there is access into the side wing of the house. Along the north-facing side of the house there is a long enclosed room which has ranged in uses from a den and playroom, to storage and utility. To the very rear there is a utility room and bathroom block providing downstairs WC.
While the present layout is very traditional, it would not take a great leap of imagination to open the rear rooms of the house into the modern, open-plan layout such as a combined living-kitchen-dining room that are so popular with families today, all facing out onto that lovely garden and catching the afternoon and evening sun. The side passage space could potentially be improved to provide a separate side entrance, mudroom, utility, downstairs wc and even more living space for the ground floor of the house.
The rear garden extends 42 ft x 43 ft and is laid to immaculate lawn and mature borders. While not the largest garden for this area it does have the perfect South-West facing aspect which provides lovely sunshine from late morning until sunset. This would be the ideal space for a young family looking for a low maintenance garden as a natural extension to the living space.
Upstairs currently includes five spacious bedrooms, a main family bathroom and separate shower room. A large master bedroom (4.4m x 3.6m) includes built-in storage and views over the rear garden. A second (4.3m x 3.6m) and third (5.6m x 2.4m) bedrooms are ample doubles with plenty of room for storage, while the final bedrooms 4 (3.4m x 2.6m) and 5 (2.7m x 2.4m) are large singles or kids rooms.
While the first floor currently contains just the one main family bathroom (3.4m x 2.4m), there is scope to open up and rearrange the layout to provide an ensuite and walk-in for the master bedroom, with a main family bathroom and potentially another ensuite. The attic space could also potentially provide more bedroom accommodation (Subject to planning permission).
Overall, this is a lovely family home with great potential with a modern touch, maintained to the highest standards and practically move-in ready.
The location of Grove Lawn is second-to-none. Set back from some of Blackrock’s most famous avenues, Grove Lawn is nothing but peace and quiet, plus ultimate safety for a family setting. Yet from here you are mere minutes to the wonderful amenities and facilities the area has to offer. Many come to the area for the sheer number of excellent schools including Carysfort NS, Willow Park, Blackrock College, Sion Hill and St. Andrews (all within a 10-15 minute walk). The village of Blackrock is thriving with many independent shops, restaurants and pubs along with the newly extended Frascati Shopping Centre (M&S, Debenhams etc). The DART station is only 15 minutes walk also and there is quick road access onto the N11 in less than 2 minutes.
