The Old Vicarage in Blackrock has a patio with built-in seating that would be the envy of all your friends. 


Built in 1873, The Old Vicarage in Blackrock is an impressive family home with five bedrooms and 0.4 acres of south-facing grounds. The double-fronted residence has a granite staircase that leads up to the front door, creating a grand entrance.

Inside, the house has been recently modernised and refurbished, yet still retains plenty of character. The main reception rooms, including the dining room, drawing room and kitchen, all have large windows that give extensive views out to the garden.

The open plan kitchen and living area is spacious, with plenty of space for a family to cook and eat together. The adjacent living room has a wood-burning stove and is perfect for cosy evenings in. On the garden level, there is also a boot room, utility room, hot press and shower room.

An unusual carved wooden staircase leads to the upper floor, which has four bedrooms. The master bedroom features an ensuite, as well as a walk-in wardrobe.

The outdoor space of this home is a real feature, with a large patio area that has wraparound built-in seating, made from Indian sandstone and reclaimed brick. A water feature also adds ambiance to this area, which would be perfect for summer days spent outside.

In addition to this, there is a large planted area full of mature plants and herbaceous borders, providing both beauty and privacy. A granite-clad boiler house provides ample storage, in addition to the garage to the rear of the house. There is also plenty of parking space, behind electronically operated gates.

Located close to the village of Blackrock, this house is in a very desirable location. As well as being well positioned for many south Dublin schools, it is also close to the sea and the city centre. At €2.95 million, there’s certainly a large price to pay for all these features. Click through our gallery above for the full tour.
