Janet Carroll Estate Agents are pleased to present number 24 Idrone Terrace for sale by private treaty. Set in an idyllic seaside location, one would be forgiven for forgetting they are in the heart of Blackrock Village. Located in one of South County Dublin’s most sought after locations.

The house is one of the largest original properties on the terrace and was cleverly separated into three apartments, over three floors. It has not been extended. The wide entrance hall is currently designed with two access doors set side-by-side. The left-hand door leads to the ground floor apartment and the right-hand door leads to the first-floor apartment. There is a separate entrance to the left of the stairway which leads to the garden level apartment.

The vendor has obtained full planning to reinstate this fine property to a single residential dwelling should one desire to do so. The Planning permission can be viewed here
This sale offers a discerning purchaser the opportunity to acquire an exquisite sea facing period gem in this highly sought-after coastal location. Number 24 enjoys a full south facing mature back garden, with planning permission for off street parking.

“They are not making any more beachfront”, as those with an interest in the property business are often heard to say. It is likely a common phrase used around Kingstown in the 19th century, when the railway arrived and turned the south Dublin coast into a resort. One property speculator who saw an opportunity was Dr Henry Kavanagh. He built an entire terrace of 27 seaside villas at Idrone Terrace in the mid-19th century, over a 20 year period, beginning in circa 1840. The terrace is set back from the road having a railed front garden with granite steps flanked by cast iron balustrade. It is Blackrock’s most complete formal terrace of period houses and is fondly called ‘Idrone Sur Mer’.

The property is approached from the seafront via a pedestrian gate and pathway through the front garden and up the wide granite steps. The period square door frame makes for an impressive entrance to the impressive reception hall. Extending to circa 274.4sqm / 2,952.54sqft, the property is spread over three floors and is characterised by stunning original period features, large open rooms with high ceilings and large shuttered windows with extensive sea views.

Blackrock has everything to offer for quality of lifestyle. Set back from a quiet village with recently upgraded shopping centres. It is approximately 600m from the DART and beach front. This location offers a superb choice of Shopping Centres, Premier Schools, Business Colleges, Library, Parks, Restaurants, Retail Outlets and Coffee Shops.
