Irish director Jim Sheridan has put his €3.5m Dublin mansion up for sale as he is looking to downsize now his children have flown the nest.
The My Left Foot filmmaker and his wife Fran have lived in the magnificent Victorian home for 27 years.
However, now their three daughters have grown up and moved across the Atlantic to the US, the house has become too big for the couple.
Sheridan told the Irish Independent: “We have bought an apartment around the corner on the canal so we will still be in the same area. I love the area.
“But the kids are gone, they’re in New York and LA so it was just too big for us.
The property is a four bedroom home, which Sheridan says is perfect for a young family – but that there is plenty of potential for development.
He said: “It’s actually two houses that are for sale. There’s the main house and then a little granny flat that comes with it that has planning permission to be re-developed,
The Victorian property has been carefully restored and maintained and still has many of its original features, such as the original floors, sash windows and ornate fireplaces.
