Stradbrook Hall number 2 in South County Dublin has an interesting next door neighbor on one side: a tall, handsome tree standing on its own pristine site. This magnificent tree is a rare protected species, which means that the neighboring site will not be developed. It’s like having a second garden in front of your house.
This beautiful, secluded family home sits in a quiet cul-de-sac just off Stradbrook Road in Blackrock, and the owners say they have been very happy here and will be sad to leave their neighbors, humans and trees. .
Stradbrook Hall was originally the site of the convent and mission house of the Sisters of the Presentation, who ran the Rockford Manor School on Stradbrook Road. Stradbrook Hall surrounds the Convent, which is now an apartment building, and there is plenty of green space on the cul-de-sac for the kids to play.
Number 2 has been tastefully renovated by its owners after purchasing it, and during the lockdown in 2020 they did even more home improvement work, landscaping the front and rear gardens and redeveloping the three bathrooms (guest toilet downstairs, family bathroom and private bathroom upstairs) with Villeroy & Boch sanitary facilities.
It’s perfectly proportioned for a small family, but there is an added benefit for buyers: the house has full planning permission and plans for a two-story extension to the side and a one-story extension to the side. back. This would take the property from its current 160m² (1,722 square feet) to a sprawling 2,500 square foot space – more than enough space for a family with teenagers.
Inside, the house has been recently repainted in Farrow & Ball colors, and the ground floor features a spacious living room and office at the front, as well as a kitchen / diner, utility room and a small veranda at the back. The original floors have been painted in a more contemporary light gray, and the desk has a floor-to-ceiling wooden TV stand with shelves.
The kitchen / diner has wood effect tiled floors and Country Kitchen design, recessed lighting and double doors leading to the veranda, which has two Velux windows and sliding doors to a lovely private garden to the rear. This one faces southwest, with a large granite wall separating it from Stradbrook Road.
There is a lovely patio with sandstone slabs and a pergola for barbecues during the summer months, a grassy lawn and an astroturf pitch next to the house with a putting green for golf enthusiasts to practice their golf courses. skills. There is also a tree house with swings and slide, and the shed sits discreetly to the side of the house.
Upstairs is a bright landing leading to four decently sized bedrooms – the main one with en-suite bathrooms – all with space-saving built-in wardrobes. The main bathroom has wood effect tiles, partially tiled walls and a Velux window.
