Janet Carroll is delighted to present to the market "Lolinda", for sale by private treaty. It is deceptively large as it has been extended. There are three double bedrooms but the property can easily be reinstated to a 4 bedroom home. This road is unique in that it has such a variety of homes that are all special in their own way, providing a beautiful brickwork tapestry as one descends from the N11 towards Blackrock.

Set in a prime location and owned by a professional interior designer, this bespoke property measuring c. 1862sqft/173sqm is superbly maintained and would suit families and those wishing to downsize alike. An exceptionally beautiful home that offers a high-quality lifestyle, and is in turn-key condition throughout making it a perfect choice for those seeking something special. Every detail has been thought through from the solid teak doors and windows to the moveable island unit in the kitchen and superb extension. With abundance of clever storage space inside and a stunning South West facing landscaped rear garden, this exceptional home tick a lot of boxes.

Highly sought after and unrivalled location within walking distance of many wonderful restaurants and shops, with some of South County Dublin's finest schools on its doorstep. It also benefits from being very close to the N11 with the QBC to Dublin city centre, Aircoach stop, UCD, TCD, St. Vincent's Hospital, Blackrock Clinic, the Beacon Hospital and of course Blackrock and Stillorgan villages.

'Lolinda' has the luxury of being central to a host of amenities and transport links but feels removed from the hustle and bustle of a city that is so full of life.

Entrance Hall: c. 1.61m x 6.34m
This space was renovated to move the stairs and create an open space upon entering. Fully tiled floor and ceiling height of c. 3.75m (max). There's a door to cloakroom as well as door leads to bedroom 3 on the left and door on the right opens to dining room.

Bedroom 4/Home Office: c. 5.00m x 4.67m
Currently in use as a guest bedroom/home office. With recessed lighting, solid timber floor, built in wardrobes and built in home office. This is a versatile room that would suit a variety of uses and it balances function with form perfectly. Access to downstairs bathroom (via Jack and Jill style layout). This room has plenty of storage for multiple uses. Zanussi deep freezer cleverly hidden under the counter. Door to ensuite bathroom.

Bathroom: c. 4.93m x 2.94m
Beautiful bathroom with a stunning stain glass window feature. Dual access. Tiled floor, partially tiled walls, fitted mirror, vanity unit, inset sink with marble top, wc and Whirlpool 20 jet jacuzzi bath. This large room is smartly laid out and has the added benefit of a concealed utility space with stainless steel sink and mixer tap. Plumbed for washing machine and dryer.

Dining Room (Front of the house on the right): c. 3.33m x 4.25m
The wonderful thing about an owner who is versed in interior design is the ability to capture both style and practicality in their vision. This room is perfectly set for dinner parties or family gatherings and a central space connects it with the adjoining family room. This works perfectly and although the current owners opted for an open frame without doors, there is certainly an opportunity to fit doors. There is an original fireplace in this room and this could be reinstated if one so wished. A large window to the front beckons light from outside and this is complimented by a beautifully laid Burmese teak wooden floor. Ceiling coving and recessed lighting create the perfect ambience.

Living Room: c. 4.00m x 5.00m (excluding arches)
This room is comfort personified. Recessed lighting, ceiling coving and Burmese teak wooden floor. A raised sandstone fireplace is a centrepiece of this room and a very realistic log effect gas fire inset provides instant heat and a comforting glow following a busy day. Double doors lead to the recently replaced decked patio.

Note: Drapes in both living and dining room are not included in the sale.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room: c. 5.87m x 4.18m (Max ceiling height of 4.21m)
This is most certainly a special room and no doubt has entertained many a guest in its time. Upon entering the room one can feel the warmth that this space exudes. The current owners cleverly extended this space and it has worked wonders. A practical and elegant moveable island with granite worktop sits beautifully in the centre of the room. Being moveable, the new purchaser can move the island around to change the layout of the kitchen at a whim, as the current owners regularly do for the rugby matches! A large Velux skylight welcomes natural light from outside. One can sense the quality in this home and this is evident in the hand painted solid timber kitchen cabinets as well as McNally Joinery solid teak double glazed windows and doors. Appliances include Electrolux double fan oven, Zanussi stainless steel gas hob, Siemens dishwasher, Siemens fridge/freezer and extractor fan. Durable and stylish black granite worktop, built in wine rack, Franke double sink, tiled floor and recessed lighting (with dimmer) complete the wonderful picture.

Fully tiled walls and floors, recessed lighting, vanity mirror, storage cupboard, wc, wash hand basin and fully tiled step in shower. A well-placed Velux skylight provides ample natural light.


To the front of the property, gravelled driveway provides ample room for parking of approximately 4 cars. This property benefits from large wooden gates that provide fantastic privacy and additional security. On the right, wooden door opens up to the side access to the back garden.

To the rear of the property is a bright landscaped South West facing garden that has a wonderful aspect, allowing it to bask in sunshine throughout the day. This huge garden (c. 16m in length) exudes a sense of calm and has the added benefit of a professional designer's touch. An additional bonus is the decked patio (c. 7.2m x 4.0m) that has been recently replaced and really lifts the space. The garden is beautifully maintained and a host of mature planting and shrubbery provide a sense of balance and serenity. There is a cleverly set vegetable patch that is perfect for the budding home grower. This is truly a hidden oasis that is all your own.
