Janet Carroll Estate Agents are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to acquire a gem of a home, in this ideal location, in the heart of Blackrock village. If you dreamt of a car-free, sustainable, life, this is it. Yards from the DART, buses, schools, churches, shopping centers, everything is in walking distance and yet 5 Maretimo Villas sits on a mature, leafy street. Within shouting distance of the sea and Blackrock's swimming bathing area and Blackrock Park, it is the kind of place where people know your name. In other words, it is not just a neighborhood, it is a community.

For a perfect family life in the metropolis of Dublin, in Number 5, everything is on the doorstep to ensure quality of life. From early childcare to the best primary and secondary school's Dublin has to offer: Blackrock College and Willow Park, Scoil Lorcain and Colaiste Eoin and Colaiste Iosagain, Sion Hill, Booterstown National School, and Saint Andrews College. All the major shopping centers such as Frascati and Blackrock are within the immediate vicinity, as well as many wonderful boutiques, restaurants, bars, specialist shops, library, senior colleges, churches, excellent sporting venues and gymnasium — the list could go on. In nearby Dun Laoghaire, are the IMC multiplex cinema, the Pavilion Theatre and the Dance Theatre of Ireland, the marina and historic yacht clubs together with several tennis and golf clubs. All within walking distance. The city center is just 17 minutes away by DART, or 30 minutes by bus.

Built in 1934, on the grounds of the former Georgian manor ‘Maretimo', built by Lord Cloncurry, the neighborhood of Maretimo is a small enclave of terraced houses beside the sea. Number 5 is unusual though. It's first owners were reputed to be a posh family from Rathgar who wanted their reception rooms to be larger and more elegant than the tastes of the time. Therefore, the home has the unusual and elegant feature of five walled rooms, in which in the two well-proportioned reception rooms are stunning carved Victorian marble fireplaces, with their original tiles and cast-iron surrounds. The open plan kitchen and dining area open onto the south facing, private patio garden with mature greenery, has a custom-made solid fuel cast iron stove with oven-box by Clearview. The floors are the original pine timber throughout. The kitchen and extension, which feature large Rational windows and doors onto the patio, also have underfloor heating by Hot Foot and oak-floor boards by Barefoot flooring.

On the first floor are three bedrooms and the bathroom which features Number 5's original cast iron bath discovered when the bathroom was upgraded. It also has a large modern glass paneled shower tiled in hand made crackle glazed ceramic tiles from Tile Style.

The first owners also had a pony and trap, which some elderly neighbors remember the family going out in on Sundays, which were housed at the rear of number 5 in a large stable and garage. This has since been rebuilt and is now a self-contained, beautifully appointed Mews with its own entrance at the rear of the house, it is ideal for the changing movements of family and working life, adapting with ease from workspace to granny flat, or additional €14,000 per annum income under the Room to Rent scheme. Number 5 also has a front garden, currently planted with fruit trees, and raised beds, a side passageway which would allow room for some extension, and a driveway which means there are no parking issues.

Number 5's current owners strove to keep all that was original and beautiful about the home, staying sensitive to its footprint and character. Thus, when rewiring the home, they had bespoke oak light switches made to replace the original and unsafe Bakelite ones. They retained the original stained glass front door, gate and cast-iron bath and sink in the main bathroom. The house has been insulated within an inch of its life. With its perfect southerly rear aspect, the house is filled with dappled light and peace.

With its beautifully converted attic area which could have many purposes, Number 5 is a deceptively large and light filled house, where every window looks onto restful greenery and where it is truly possible to live and run a business from home without stress, without a car, in a house that moves with all of life's changing needs.

This property still leaves room for its new owners to put their stamp on it, while owning a unique and stunningly located home. Viewing is highly recommended.
