This striking home in Marino Park, Blackrock, in of the market for €1.85 million

Old charm in a very desirable location, this stunning period home in Blackrock is for sale for €1.85 million.

Marino House, after which the neighbourhood is named, is a late Georgian home built around 1835 in the heart of Mount Merrion. The four-bedroom double-fronted 279-square-metre period residence has been carefully renovated to make for a comfortable and modern family home.  

Set back from the road through an electric gate and along a meandering drive, Marino House is tucked behind the established neighbour of The Elms.

From the airy entry hall, where you get a taste of the intricate mouldings and high ceilings, there are a large drawing room and living room that mirror each other, both beautifully proportioned with matching bay windows and marble fireplaces unusually centred in the middle of the house. The drawing room has an open fire while the living room has a stove and both rooms have access to the garden.

The more casual living room leads into the kitchen/diner located in the rear with ample space for cooking and entertaining. Sash windows flood this room with light and the timber kitchen is modern yet warm thanks to the Maple finish and engineered quartz stone countertops. 

The room also accesses the walled garden, with patio spaces that wrap around the house so you can follow the sun around all day. The garden itself is beautifully designed to be enjoyed thanks to paved and gravelled areas and plenty of privacy.

Completing the ground floor is a study with a floor-to-ceiling bookcase and a wrought-iron Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and under the stairs are a surprisingly large utility room and guest bathroom.

Upstairs on the first floor are four very large double bedrooms all with large windows and a family bathroom. The principal room is located to the back of the house boasts of a walk-in wardrobe and its own ensuite. The family bathroom, with a large free-standing bathtub and a separate walk-in shower, can be accessed from the landing or one of the front bedrooms.
