  • No.  8  Cross Avenue is  not just an address, but a home. A home created by the current owners over years of affording it all  the care and attention that goes into a property like  this. An imposing period house with its very recently painted façade and front door one feels welcomed the moment you ring the doorbell. It is rare that a house comes to the market in Blackrock that can literally satisfy all the needs of a potential purchaser, but this house has everything. A traditional semi-detached two storey over garden level layout (with pedestrian side passageway leading to rear granite walled garden) the accommodation is cleverly apportioned and maximises the overall size of this property in every regard. The accommodation in brief, consists of spacious hallway, interconnecting drawing room and living room, guest w.c,  dining room, kitchen / breakfast area, utility room, three double bedrooms and bathroom not to forget the excellent rear walled garden and secure off street parking.


    The location of this property has already been touched on, but again No. 8 Cross Avenue’s location cannot be  surpassed for  any property in this area. The  property is positioned directly opposite the extremely well  know and popular secondary schools of  Blackrock College and Sion Hill, with St Andrews College but a short stroll, UCD within easy access, and no less than three primary schools in the vicinity.  Convenient is an understatement at best to think how well  this house is located for its new owners with a growing family. It is but a short stroll to Blackrock village and Booterstown.


    Blackrock shopping centre is a hub of activity and the choice of shops, restaurants and other amenities is excellent. Travelling to surrounding areas also need not take long. If it is not already within walking distance, then a short drive up to the Stillorgan dual carriageway or to the Blackrock road allows one to reach many other destinations without any undue delay. At this stage we must not forget the public transport facilities on  one’s door step too,  namely the DART with the local station in Blackrock village travelling straight  into the city  centre. The   DART service is  also complimented  by regular private & public bus services along the Blackrock road or along the Stillorgan dual carriageway. In  summary this house has to be  viewed to be  fully  appreciated. Read on,  and take on board every small detail of this brochure to absorb each and every characteristic of this beautiful family home.
