Situated on Avoca Avenue, it’s full of character and has many of its period features intact.

Although it may look small from the outside, Headford Cottage on Avoca Avenue in Blackrock is in fact a spacious, five-bedroom home with multiple reception rooms and a home office.

You enter the home into a large, bright hallway with high ceilings and ornate cornicing, archways, and a wooden floor. To the right of this space is the interconnected sitting room and dining room. The sitting room is an elegant space with a large sash window with shutters, a large fireplace, and the ornate cornicing continues into this room.

Blackrock house for sale

The dining room has a sash window that looks out to the back garden, and a period fireplace. There are also three bedrooms on the hall level, including the main bedroom which has an ensuite.

Downstairs at the garden level is the kitchen, which has an Aga surrounded by exposed brick, a Belfast sink, and polished granite worktops. There is also a utility room off the kitchen.

The kitchen leads through to a cosy family room, while to the back of the house sits a study with a stove, and there are two further bedrooms on this level, each with its own fireplace.

Outside, the rear garden extends to 0.2 acres, and includes a large patio area, as well as gravelled paths that lead through carefully-planted beds and box hedging. To the back of the garden is a studio that could be put to a number of uses including an additional home office or workspace.
