Description

Janet Carroll is delighted to offer 'Clogrenan' to the market. This is a very fine red brick exterior home (c. 1532 sqft/142.3 sqm) with a separate garage and car port. It has a very secluded feel and is positioned on a beautiful elevated site. Presented in excellent condition throughout, the property has never been extended, and has superb development potential subject to planning permission.

Never has the phrase 'location, location, location' been more appropriate than this area.
This property is on one of the most sought after residential roads in South County Dublin, and with good reason. This beautifully set home is close to a multitude of amenities and transport links. It is also across the road from the entrance of one of the largest of Ireland's premier third level institutions, U.C.D. This is a university that has educated some of Ireland's finest professionals for over 160 years with a stellar international record, but also acts as a ‘lung' for this area with over 330 acres of campus grounds to enjoy.

Positioned on the edge of Mount Merrion, Clogrenan also benefits from being central to the N11 with swift access to Dublin city centre, Dundrum, TCD, St. Vincent's Hospital, Blackrock Clinic and the Beacon Hospital.

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

Foster's Avenue has always been in high demand, as it has the character that only mature residential areas can offer. Number 56 is indeed one of those special homes that does not come up very often. Generations of families are often brought up in the same home and this means that number 56 holds many memories for those passing it on to the next custodian to make more beautiful new memories.

Adding to this home is the extraordinary garden that is a fabulous space surrounded by beautiful planting and shrubbery. The garden is very deceptive in the sense that it is private and one would never imagine a space like this from the front of the property. It provides a sense of serenity in a city that is always on the move.
