Bothar Maol is located off the Blackrock Road, which is mid distance between Dundalk and Blackrock: so you have the convenience of accessing all amenities of town, and the opportunity to enjoy Blackrock's rather unique community life. Several national and secondary schools are convenient, and the M1 motorway way is a short drive.
This is a house that strikes a lovely balance between town and country; its location along a quiet road and large maturely planted c.1 acre site gives it a sense of a rural feelling, yet its elevated position means you can see the bustle of town in the distance, framed by the Cooley and Mourne mountains in the distance. Essentially: Bothar Maol has everything on its doorstep!
The house was designed by local well regarded Architect Fergus Flynn Rogers. He has cleverly introduced light throughout thanks to larger than standard windows and lots of dual aspects. The result is a lovely home that could easily exist without any need of window dressings – just enjoy the outside from within!
Entrance lobby leads to hallway. Starting with the very fine living room, this triple aspect space has a lovely feel to it. A perfect spot from which to enjoy the beautiful garden outside, it has free standing stove and high comfort factor. A connecting door leads to the family / tv rom or home office. This room also has free standing stove and has sliding door to a west facing patio (BBQ, anyone?). It's worth noting that the back garden is south facing and there's lots of running about space.
The kitchen to rear has a nice amount of work and storage space, although the adjacent utility is an important addition for the work of laundry, etc. Guest wc is in the hall, then down to the bedrooms: there are four bedrooms – 3 are doubles. All enoy the Architect's motif of large windows, and the main has a dual aspect, as does its neighbour which has slide robes. The main also has an en-suite. The main bathroom was upgraded in recent times and has separate shower.
All told, this home has a lot of important and specific benefits that are really hard to find so close to town: c.1 acre site, double garage, spacious accommodation (c 160 sq m) and all on a really lovely peaceful site. Definitely worth a serious consideration if you crave space, light and a great location.
