Behind this attractive façade is a most exceptional home of style and quality, superbly located just a three-minute walk from Blackrock Village. Designed by Dermot Bannon and featured on RTE's 'Room to Improve'. This property underwent a full renovation, starting from scratch and leaving nothing but the front wall. The result is a truly exceptional property of exacting standards that must be seen to be truly appreciated.
Externally, the house retains its original charm with new double glazed sash windows and wood-panelled front door. Upon entering, the high-quality workmanship and architectural re-design becomes immediately apparent, with beautiful hardwood oak parquet flooring and vaulted ceiling with Velux windows. The lounge sits to the right, it boasts a handsome feature fireplace with high efficiency gas fire and limestone surround. This area flows into the kitchen which is fitted with beautiful bespoke white gloss and matt grey fitted units. Beyond the kitchen lies the dining room with impressive bespoke sliding bookshelf, acting as a room divider between it and the adjoining living room or could be used for entertaining on a grand scale. Both the dining and living room enjoy the travertine courtyard as their focal points, with large sliding doors leading to same.

The second double bedroom and stylish main bathroom with atmospheric lighting complete the remarkable internal accommodation.
