Oreen, 37 Green Road, Blackrock, Co. Dublin, A94 W1Y9

Semi-detached House





193 sq.m.



Janet Carroll is pleased to offer "Oreen" 37 Green Road, (formerly known as Victoria Place, Sydney Avenue) for sale by Private Treaty. Built in 1912, this salubrious residential area experienced a property boom due to the arrival of the Blackrock Railway Station 1931, which links Blackrock to Dublin city centre and Dun Laoghaire. Situated just off Waltham Terrace, "Oreen" was completed in a time of civil unrest, 4 years before the 1916 rising. This is the first time this residence has been offered for sale since it was built. There are only six houses listed on Green Road in the census of 1911.

One of the special features of this lovely home is its c. 93ft/28.3m long rear garden which is joined to the Bowling and Tennis Club (1906) by a low granite wall. This property enjoys exquisite open skyline, overlooking the bowling green on, 'an area of one acre, two roods & four perches of land.'

The property has never been extended and is not listed. Presented in lovely condition throughout, with many of its period features intact, it would lend itself to development, subject to planning permission, should one desire a larger home.

Within a leisurely stroll of a wide choice of schools, UCD Smurfit College campus, Blackrock village life with a library, churches, recently extended shopping centres, DART to TCD and city centre, extensive bus routes, nearby Sailing Clubs, parks, sea front, boutiques, shops, cafés and restaurants.

Viewing of this very special home is highly recommended.

To the front there is plenty of on street permit parking which allows residents to park on certain roads near the village as well (local signage displays where permits are valid). There is mature planting and a beautiful tree that blossoms in the Spring. To the rear there is a garden that measures circa 93ft/28.3m long and 40ft wide. This overlooks the lawn and tennis club and makes for a calming setting. A mature lawn, planting and shrubbery that have been well cared for by the current keepers make this a relaxing space to be. There is external storage as well and a gardeners' w/c (not in use). This rear garden is what makes this road so very special. The view of greenery is complimented by a tapestry of views of nearby Waltham Terrace, serving only to enhance this special residence.


Proceed up Mount Merrion Avenue from the Rock Road or Frascati Road. After the next traffic light, turn left onto Waltham Terrace (across Butler's Pantry). Turn left onto Green Road. The property is on the left.
