Located within walking distance to Blackrock village, this Georgian home’s elegant exterior gives you an idea of the scale and proportion of the rooms inside.

 


Built in 1836, Pipers Lodge is located just off Mount Merrion Avenue, one of the most desirable locations around the Blackrock area and just 15 minutes walk from the centre of the village. A double-fronted home in a villa style, this four-bed house is spacious, and would make a perfect residence for a busy family.

Granite steps lead up to the main level, where there are two reception rooms to the front, each with original marble fireplaces, high ceilings and decorative plaster work. Although the interiors may feel a little dated, with some simple updates these could be truly stunning rooms.

There are three bedrooms on this level, including the dual aspect master bedroom with extensive built-in wardrobes and en suite. These bedrooms all overlook the large rear garden.

On the garden level, the dining room and sun room are bright, with large windows, doors leading out to the garden, and a conservatory-style ceiling, although beams provide shade as well as sun.

The kitchen has a gas-fired Aga cooker. On this level there is a family room, library, study, utility room, wine store and a fourth bedroom. There is also a playroom that could easily be used as a fifth bedroom if required.

Blackrock house for sale

The house sits on a 0.3 acre site, with a secluded south-west facing garden to the rear. A patio area beside the house provides space for al fresco dining, while there is a large lawn area, ideal for children, that is surrounded by trees and shrubs that provide privacy.

Pipers Lodge is also located close to many sought-after schools, including Blackrock College, St. Andrew’s College, Willow Park and Sion Hill. University College Dublin is also close by, while the DART provides easy access into the city centre. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this house.
