BRILLIANTLY LOCATED STARTER HOME IN BLACKROCK
Churches Estate Agents are delighted to bring this potentially wonderful home to the market. Brookfield Avenue is in an ideal location, set just off Carysfort Avenue, opposite the Smurfit UCD Campus and near some of Blackrock’s best local schools. Blackrock Village is less than a 10 minute walk and there is easy access to transport via the DART and the road network (Rock Road or N11 into Dublin City Centre). 5 Brookfield Avenue is a traditional terraced home built in the 1920s. It’s classic part-brick frontage is an attractive design common to the area.
A small front garden provides some landscaping opportunities to a very some attractive curb-appeal. Inside the front door is a long, well-lit entrance hallway finished with tile flooring. The first door to the left enters the living room, a fine square-shaped room with feature fireplace and bright from two large front windows. To the rear you enter a spacious kitchen with sliding double doors facing onto the garden, fitted storage, electric oven and gas hob. There is access to ample under stairs storage. Following on from the kitchen is a side-return which features a utility area with appliances and sink, and then the main bathroom with shower, WC and bathroom.
There is plenty of opportunity to rearrange the layout and design of the ground floor, either internally or with additional extensions (Subject to Planning if Required).
Up the bring staircase, lit by a large sash window, the landing leads on to the two bedrooms. The front bedroom takes up the whole front of the first floor, with two large windows to front. There is space for a king-sized bed and built-in storage. A large corner bath with electric show is placed in the corner of the room, and then there is access to a toilet with WC and basin to the side. The second rear bedroom is a good sized double. The existing layout is unconventional but there is ample room for a very generous main bathroom and/or even a separate ensuite to be created using the existing space. The attic provides excellent storage.
Outside, he rear courtyard garden extends to 9 meters (30 feet) and is South-facing, creating an incredible sun trap later in the afternoon. There is a lean-to shed to the rear. The garden includes an attractive old stone wall to one flank which makes an interesting feature. This could be a wonderful haven of a garden in the right hands.
Overall the house had been maintained in good condition but would benefit from modernisation and some clever design would make this a fabulous family home. It has had some upgrades, including double-glazing and the rear wall and side extension have been externally insulated. Parking is on street outside but plentiful (permits available for residents).
Brookfield is a excellent location for amenities, with local gyms on your doorstep, a great cafe at the end of the road, and of course Blackrock Village a short walk away. Blackrock is renowned for schools, with excellent primary and secondary education options. Carysfort National School is one of the best in the area and is just 150 meters away. The area is spoiled for outside space and amenities, with Carysfort Park and Rockfield Park a literal stones’ throw away in each direction, with local Carriag Tennis Courts and Blackrock Tennis Club a short walk too. Of course Blackrock is on the seafront with great coastal walks, cycle paths and scenery. Blackrock now has two newly refurbished shopping centres and a thriving Main Street. Major shops include Supervalue, M&S and Aldi, plus a new bijou Dunnes Stores on Newtownpark Avenue.
