Halligan O'Connor are delighted to welcome you to 'Roscarrig', Church Street, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin - a magnificent semi-detached 305sqm Period Residence which stands on a plot of c0.5acre with obvious development potential (stpp). Formerly known as Georges Street when it extended to the shoreline before the construction of the rail line, Church Street was developed from the mid 18th century to include a number of substantial homes. 'Roscarrig' is one of the few remaining and is a semi-detached home constructed in the early 19th century. It still retains many of the elegant period features synonymous with the Georgian era to include intricate cornicing and coving, high 12 ft ceilings, window shutters and original fireplaces. This exceptional family home is filled with character and charm which gives a strong sense of its time. Entertaining on a grand scale can easily be catered in this property with generous reception rooms and extensive paving, courtyards and private sun filled gardens.

Access is directly off Church Street via a colorful Georgian door framed by a portico and with fanlight over. The entrance hall opens to a wonderful formal reception room with high ceiling and feature fireplace also gives access to the rear annex accommodation. A secondary hallway invites you into a period drawing room with high ceiling and feature fireplace and with windows and double doors opening to the private rear patio and gardens. There are three large double bedrooms (one en suite), and family bathroom at 1st floor in the main house. The historic Annex section accommodates a large bright double height kitchen/dining area with half door access to the courtyard areas on one side and access to private paved areas and garden on the other side making this a wonderful invitation for al fresco dining. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom in this annex making it ideal for guest accommodation. 'Roscarrig' is guaranteed to impress and appeal to those looking for family home.

Ouside the private walled rear garden extending to almost a half acre is a real jewel in the crown of this exceptional property. It enjoys a glorious sunny orientation, is exceptionally private and offers huge scope for further expansion/development if so desired. The property benefits from a gated side access to a double courtyard area and offers ample off street parking.

All in all this is a stunning property which is sure to be of interest to a wide range of discerning purchasers - early viewing is advised!
