The Sunday Times l Nice moves | Buyers find sanctuary in The Cloisters

Co Dublin, €620,000

Built on the grounds of the convent-run Carysfort College, in Blackrock, in the early 1990s, The Cloisters development has matured nicely over the years. Buyers have always liked the idea of living off Victorian Carysfort Avenue, which is close to Blackrock village and the Dart.

The owners of No 2 Cloister Gate have given it a makeover, adding double-glazed windows, stylish bathrooms and a fully fitted kitchen. The 120 sq metre semi-detached dormer bungalow has three bedrooms, two reception rooms and two bathrooms.

The structure beside No 2 is a detached three-storey house that was built by the previous owners of No 2 in about 2011.

People who live in the scheme don’t like to move far from it, it seems. The current owners of No 2 are in search of a property close to the estate or – their ideal buy – a larger home within it.


They say: A turn-key home in the perfect family estate

We say: You may never want to leave.
