Semi-detached House





156 sq.m.

Mount Merrion


Janet Carroll is delighted to offer 30 The Rise an exquisite semi-detached property, for sale by Private Treaty to the Summer market. Situated in a super prime location, this beautiful residence (c. 1675sqft/ 155.6sqm) has been thoroughly enjoyed by the current owners for over 30 years and comes with a rear garden most would not believe exists, measuring a staggering c. 229 feet/ 69.8 metre long.

A double fronted five-bedroom family home, it has been lovingly cared for and provides new purchasers with tremendous scope to extend and customise to their own taste. The front of the home is impeccably kept, private and mature hedging hides 30 The Rise from sight, allowing the new owners to bask in the suntrap side patio. This home has served the current owners well and future families will no doubt relish the lifestyle it affords, with a private park for a garden.

Location wise Mount Merrion is one of the most sought after residential areas in South County Dublin, and with good reason as it is close to a multitude of amenities and transport links. It is also around the corner from the entrance to one of the largest of Ireland's premier third level institutions, UCD. It benefits from being central to the N11 with swift access to Dublin city centre, Dundrum, TCD, St. Vincent's Hospital, Blackrock Clinic, the Beacon Hospital and of course Blackrock, Mount Merrion and Stillorgan Village Centre. There are a host of shops literally on your doorstep which add a fantastic sense of community.

For those conscious of excellent education, there is no shortage of premier schools both private and public in this locality.

Entrance Hall: c. 4.05m x 2.73m
There is something intangible about the sense you get when you walk into this home. A welcoming feeling to a place that has been thoroughly enjoyed for over 30 years.

Guest W/C:
Tiled walls and floor, wash hand basin, cabinet and a window.

Living Room/Dining Room: c. 4.41m x 3.95m/c. 3.59m x 3.95m
This room was originally comprised of two rooms, but the owners made use of dual aspect light and transformed it into one space. Perfect for entertaining family and friends. In the dining area there is an ornate mantel with gas fire inset. This is great for instant heat or simply to create a nice atmosphere prior to guests arriving. A window provides natural light to the front of the home with cleverly set hedging providing superb privacy.

In the living room area, there is a pvc French door flanked by windows that frame the garden. There is a prominently set wood burning 'Blacksmith' stove in place of the original fire (the original fireplace can be reinstated quite easily). Although we are now in the warmer months, this stove is just what one needs after a long day at school or the office.

Playroom/TV Room/Study: c. 3.34m x 2.73m
It is a great feature of more mature homes that they have more rooms for added practicality. This space is perfect as an additional tv room, office or indeed a playroom for those with little ones. A window looks onto the back garden.

Kitchen/Breakfast Room: c. 8.10m x 2.65m
This is an open plan space that will work very well for families. The kitchen is nestled beside the breakfast area and this room is filled with light on both sides. Wall and floor wooden cabinetry is perfect for storage and will no doubt please the cook of the house. Integrated Zanussi dishwasher, integrated Hotpoint fridge, Electrolux hob, tiled splashback and a stainless-steel sink. Two sets of sliding doors lead to both the suntrap patio to the side of the property as well as the unbelievable rear garden that beggar's belief.


Bedroom 1 (Adjacent to bathroom): c. 2.52m x 2.76m
Fitted carpet, freestanding wardrobe and window.

Bathroom: c. 2.74m x 1.81m
Tiled walls and floor, w/c, wash hand basin with ornate fitted cabinet, freestanding cast iron bath and shower cubicle with Triton electric shower. The bath is a standout feature in this room and provides elegance to this space. Multiple windows bring in natural light.

Library: c. 2.73m x 2.76m
This is a perfect room for storing one's book collection or as a study or work space. It is set atop the landing and there is a sense of escapism about it, where one could sit in peace and read a book or paper when time allows. The boiler is also located in here together with large hotpress.

Bedroom 2: c. 3.42m x 2.79m
The view of the rear garden provides a relaxing tone to the room. Fitted carpet and built in wardrobe.

Bedroom 3 (Main): c. 4.50m x 3.95m
Fitted carpet, wall to wall fitted wardrobes, built in dressing table with rich texture to the wood. Built in mirror. There is an expansive view of the rear garden that appears to go on forever, which is an unlikely surprise in a central location such as this.

Bedroom 4: c. 3.59m x 3.95m
This is a bright room with fitted carpet, wall to wall fitted wardrobe with built in dressing table and mirror. Large window to the front.

Bedroom 5: c. 2.52m x 2.79m
Laminate floor with a window to the front. This is currently used as a make-up room.


To the front, the house is set back from the road and there is off street parking for circa 3 – 4 cars. Mature hedging adds privacy to the front and once you close the front gates this space is all your own. There is a suntrap patio area to the side of the home that the current owners enjoy, especially at this time of year.

To the rear, there is a large garden measuring circa 229 feet/ 69.8 metre long and it appears to go on and on. It is an untold asset to a home like this in such a sought-after location. The garden is cleverly framed by walls and mature planting separates the garden into subtle sections. One cannot help but be drawn to the mature horse chestnut that is in the centre of the garden at the half way point. It was planted by the current owners' children over 25 years ago. This is a testament to the many years that they have enjoyed in this special residence. Many would forego external space to attain the benefits of an address like this but in this case, you can have both.

At the end of the rear garden, there is a further large patio/BBQ area, which is protected by fencing and hedging and is totally private and not overlooked. In summer, this area benefits from full sun all day and evening and is very suited to evening barbeques in total privacy.


On the N11 heading towards the city centre, turn left at the junction at Radisson Blu St. Helen's Hotel, onto St. Thomas Road, merging onto The Rise. This is the road that leads to the local Super Valu shop and local church. Continue on The Rise and number 30 is on your left-hand side opposite the local shops.
