Corbally, 14 Glenvar Park, Blackrock, County Dublin, A94 E9D2

Semi-detached House

Sale Agreed




168 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is delighted to offer Corbally, 14 Glenvar Park, for sale by Private Treaty. Situated just off Cross Avenue, close to Blackrock College, it is well positioned in a magnificent tranquil cul de sac setting. Built c. 1948, the house is close to Bellevue, where Eamon de Valera, it was claimed, composed the Irish Constitution in 1937.

These properties rarely come up for sale. Some of the residents have enjoyed their forever homes for over 60 years. The late actress Maureen O'Hara was a frequent visitor to Glenvar Park.

A semi-detached house measuring circa 1,808 sqft/168 sqm, Corbally is presented in turnkey condition throughout and has one of the largest South West facing rear garden c. 113ft/ 34.4m long in this prime residential location. Upgraded in 2010, it was fully rewired and has the addition of a new 'Shaker Style' kitchen and well-proportioned bedrooms. The garage was converted into an additional room with a separate bathroom, ideal for a live-in nanny. It would lend itself to be substantially extended (subject to planning permission).

Blackrock is one of the star performers of South County Dublin as it caters for such a variety of needs. For those with education in mind, it has some of the most prestigious schools, some of which are almost on your doorstep! Only a few minutes stroll to some of Irelands Premier schools including Willow Park Primary School, Blackrock College, St. Andrew's International School, Booterstown National School and the Dominican Girls Secondary School.

Blackrock village is close by and boasts not one, but two shopping centres. Both are undergoing renovation, and will no doubt benefit the new keeper of number 14. Parks, walks, sporting clubs, sailing and more are all ingredients for a well-balanced lifestyle. Couple this with a Michelin starred restaurant in the local village (Heron & Grey) and you cannot help but envy all that this wonderful town has to offer! With excellent transport facilities in the area include the DART, the Stillorgan N11 and QBC making commuting to the city centre and surrounding areas extremely convenient.

This home is superb on all fronts and cannot fail to impress. The lifestyle offered in this special location is unrivalled. Viewing is highly recommended.
