Full Description

Harvard Lodge is an impressive double-fronted Georgian residence superbly positioned on a highly sought-after Avenue very close to Blackrock Village, yet in its own tranquil and historic setting.

Harvard Lodge boasts two elegant reception rooms to the front of the property enhanced greatly by wonderful ceiling height and tall sliding sash windows with hand blown glass permitting ample natural light into both rooms. On this level there is also a well-fitted kitchen with views across the extensive rear garden, a utility room and a guest w.c. with shower. With its various sets of double doors Harvard Lodge lends itself to entertaining both inside and out on the large sun-filled patio.

Upstairs, the landing is a particular feature of the property with a beautiful and bright picture window overlooking the front of the house with attractive timber shutters. In addition to this there are two large bedrooms to the front of the property and a third to the rear along with the family bathroom.

Sydney Avenue runs from Mount Merrion Avenue to Carysfort Avenue and is a short walk from Blackrock Village which provides a wide array of shops, cafes and restaurants including the Michelin Star Liath Restaurant in Blackrock Market. The new Frascati and Blackrock Shopping Centres are nearby. The area also benefits from all the conveniences that Blackrock Park and the coastline have to offer as well as Carysfort Park on your doorstep.

An impressive selection of schools is a particular attraction in this area. Primary schools in walking distance include Carysfort, Booterstown and Willow Park. Secondary schools - Blackrock, St. Andrews, Oatlands and Newpark Colleges are also within walking distance of Harvard Lodge. Beyond that the University College Dublin’s campus at Belfield is also close by. Public transport links include the DART, a quality bus corridor connecting Blackrock with the city centre as well as the N11 and the M50 which are both easily accessible.
