6 Bed House For Sale


Casey & Kingston, Auctioneers are excited to launch Menloe House, Blackrock Road, a gracious Georgian period property, on the market – “Country style living in the heart of the City”.

Menloe House is a window to past times when rooms were of grand proportion and attention to detail was the norm. This elegant, 6 bed-roomed property runs to 4,000 sq. ft. and is accessed off the Blackrock Road through a tree-lined avenue. The 1-acre mature site is totally private and includes a 2-bedroomed gate lodge and stables. The property has been upgraded over the years, yet retains a traditional feel. This property must be seen to be fully appreciated.
