The former Dublin home of one of Ireland’s greatest actors was put on the market recently and comes with a wonderful rooftop seating area – and a few more surprises.
The property – once owned by Gabriel Byrne – is located at walking distance to the city centre but far enough away from the hustle and bustle on the “highly desirable and tranquil” Herbert Lane.
It is listed by myhome.ie for a price of €1.65 m.
The four-bedroom mews was built in 1889, when it would have been part of a row of stables and carriage houses.
The living quarters were originally located above.
It has been converted into a beautiful family home and maintained and modernised throughout the years.
The result is a stunning house with all the modern comforts you could wish for – including plenty of natural light – while also “retaining its period charm”.
Some of the charming features of the property include a stone façade, glass ceiling lantern, timber flooring, marble fireplace, French doors and a south facing garden.
Dublin’s Merrion Square is a short walk from the property in one direction, while the other takes you to the Grand Canal, which is a great place for walking or cycling – or just having a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants and cafes.
The listing on myhome.ie states: “Beautifully maintained, this fabulous home of approx. 213.7 sq. m. / 2,300 sq.ft. with garage for off street parking, rear garden of approx. 40ft and roof top terrace offers modern living space whilst retaining its period charm.
“The ground floor comprises a large and welcoming entrance hallway with wainscot panelling incorporating the radiators, your eye immediately drawn straight through to the wonderful sunny rear garden.
“The fully fitted kitchen features a range of high-quality floor and wall mounted timber cream painted units, a 4 ring gas Aga Companion, fitted appliances and terracotta stone floor. A door leads through to the magnificent open plan living / dining room.
“The first floor with glass ceiling lantern bathes the landing with light and benefits from four spacious double bedrooms, one currently in use as a home office. The principal bedroom is to the rear spanning the width of the house. It overlooks the beautiful and tranquil rear garden.”
