While in need of modernisation, this 1960s era two-storey detached house offers tremendous potential to create an outstanding 21st century home in a prime South Dublin location within easy reach of both Blackrock and Stillorgan village centres.

Positioned at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac and commanding panoramic first floor views over Dublin Bay, Rushlee forms part of a mature and leafy residential development a short walk from local neighbourhood shops. It is also within easy reach of the many shops, boutiques, pubs, restaurants, artisan cafes and other amenities that make Blackrock and Stillorgan such sought-after addresses.

Even without including a conservatory to the rear of the house and a garage and other outbuildings to the side, the total floor area of the property still exceeds 1,500 square feet.

Existing ground floor accommodation comprises a spacious entrance hall, an exceptionally large open plan living/dining room, a kitchen with pantry off and (not included in the core floor area) a conservatory adjoining the dining room. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, two of them larger than average and those at the front with those Dublin Bay views. A landing and a family bathroom complete the upper floor.

While all this adds up to a significantly bigger floor area than the average four-bed Dublin new build, the existing accommodation is only half story. Dating from an era when new homes were built on much larger sites than now, the property has an exceptionally large footprint that comfortably exceeds one-tenth of an acre.

This generous plot size is most obvious to the rear of the property, where a long back garden offers plenty of scope (subject to planning) to extend out to the rear. In addition to this, there is also a garage and series of outbuildings to the side of the property that offer further potential to convert and/or extend.


The property enjoys a prime location in a mature and much sought-after South Dublin address off Newtownpark Avenue, close to a wide range of shops, stores, boutiques, cafés, pubs, restaurants, services and amenities in nearby Blackrock and Stillorgan village centres – both just over 2km away.

Neighbourhood shops within easy walking distance of the property include the Blackrock branch of Dunnes Stores, an O’Brien’s off licence and other local shops.

Families with appreciate its close proximity to a wide-ranging choice of excellent South Dublin schools, including Colaiste Iosagain, Colaiste Eoin, Oatlands College, Teresians, St Michael’s, Willow Park and Blackrock College (junior and senior schools), Mount Anville (Montessori, junior and senior), St. Andrew’s (junior and senior) and Scoil San Treasa in Mount Merrion.

Many sporting and leisure facilities are within walking distance. UCD Campus with its beautiful secluded walks, Blackrock Park with its sea views and and Deer Park with its tennis club, football pitches, natural wood playground and beautiful walks are all on the doorstep.

The very active and prominent Mount Merrion Community Centre is nearby, as is Mount Merrion Football club and Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club.

A large number of Dublin Bus services provide frequent public transport links to the city centre via the Stillorgan Quality Bus Corridor, as do nearby Luas stops in Kilmacud and Stillorgan, the latter with a nearby park and ride facility. There are also DART stations in Booterstown and Blackrock, while the nearby M50 interchange affords motoring access to the Greater Dublin area and all points beyond.

Viewing of this property is strongly recommended for home-hunters searching for outstanding potential in a prime South Dublin address, with a very extensive south facing secluded garden and within walking distance of all local amenities.
