20 Cloister Way, Blackrock, Co. Dublin, A94 R3N2

Semi-detached House





120 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to present number 20 Cloister Way for sale by private treaty. Measuring c. 120sqm/ 1,292sqft, with four well-proportioned bedrooms, this semi-detached family home has the perfect orientation, making it one of the most desirable properties in this area. Located in a quite cul de sac within a stroll of the park and playground. A key aspect to this home is the corner site it occupies with an expansive garden; offering the perfect opportunity to extend subject to planning if desired.

This home was built for a family to live, grow and enjoy all that Blackrock has to offer. Whilst set in a quiet cul de sac, this property is central to a host of conveniences for a great lifestyle. It would seem as though number 20 has it all!

Built on the grounds of Our Lady of Mercy Convent 1877, (commonly known as Carysfort College) the Cloisters was the area where many a novice would be spotted strolling the grounds in prayer. Cloister Way is probably one of the very best locations to bring up a family in Blackrock. This mature area is unrivalled with so many amenities on the doorstep; feeding the ducks, picnicking or enjoying the playground in the local park, this area nurtures activity and curiosity. Children can walk to Carysfort National school with their friends in an idyllic setting, crossing over scenic Carysfort Park.

It is also a very short walk to the Church of Ireland national school on Carysfort Avenue. Most of the premier secondary schools are within walking distance as is the UCD Smurfit Business College. Spoilt for choice, just a 10-minute walk through a pedestrian short cut leading to the N11 for the QBC, for speedy access to Dublin City, UCD, and St. Vincent's Hospital or walk 10 minutes to Blackrock village and the seafront for the DART. There is also a bus to DCU and the airport express bus stop close by.

Close to shopping centres in Blackrock, Stillorgan and only a short drive to Dundrum town centre. Surrounded by all the amenities one would desire from tennis clubs, pitch and putt course, a swimming pool, Montessori/nursery schools with after school care facilities. Carysfort medical centre is close by and Blackrock Clinic is a short drive.
