A most charming period terraced property with wonderful light filled accommodation set over three levels, enjoying a perfect sunny east-west orientation and an enviable location positioned off Sweetman’s Avenue with just a 10 minute leisurely stroll from the bustling village of Blackrock providing an array of amenities both social and essential.
On entering the property, one will immediately appreciate a style and character which oozes in abundance, complimented by a perfect living and bedroom accommodation balance, which is both bright and spacious with many original features remaining intact. Built in the early 1900’s, No. 17 Brookfield Terrace presents a fine example of the yellow brick period and has been very well maintained and cleverly upgraded in more recent years, yet leaves a great potential for discerning purchasers to further enhance and extend to one’s own personal style and taste.
The accommodation, which stands approximately 106 sq. m. (1143 sq. ft.) briefly comprises a welcoming entrance hall with reclaimed solid wood flooring, salvaged from an old school house and now flows through the entire ground floor. To the right are two generous interconnecting reception rooms with high ceilings, featuring beautiful matching cast Iron fireplaces, synonymous with this era. Light flows through the front living room’s sliding sash window and passes through to the dining room with its tall glass panelled double doors, which effortlessly capture the morning and evening sun and allow access to the private rear garden.
A galley style kitchen provides ample storage and counter top space equipped with fitted high shine wall and floor kitchen units while an additional under stair store room completes the accommodation on this level.
On the first floor, a long landing provides access to two generous double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The front bedroom includes built-in wardrobes to either side of the chimney breast and the rear bedroom features a focal cast iron fireplace. Additional hanging space is provided by custom designed under stair units in the landing.
From the landing, a staircase with modern brushed steel balustrade perfectly fuses the old world with new and leads to a wonderful attic room with an exposed brick feature wall, large Velux window and excellent built-in storage, currently being used as a third bedroom which completes the accommodation.
A low maintenance private city garden of approximately 40 sq. ft. provides a large decked and gravelled area, with rear pedestrian access, perfect for al fresco entertaining and offers huge scope for further expansion if so required.
Brookfield Terrace is an extremely convenient and sought-after location. Situated within a short stroll of Blackrock Village, a stone’s throw from two major shopping facilities, the Blackrock Park and sea front are practically on one’s doorstep.
The location is served by excellent public transport making a 6 km commute to the city centre nice and easy by bus, Dart or bike. An excellent selection of choice primary and secondary schools are located nearby, including Blackrock College, St. Andrews College, Carysfort National Schools, Hollypark National School and Sion Hill to name, but a few as is U.C.D. Smurfit.
