5 Beds 2 Bath 153 m² Sold
*The sale of this property represents a great opportunity to modernise a classic Victorian residence to its former glory complete with a south facing town garden*
43 Morehampton Road has a lot of history to it. This home was formerly owned by Beatrice Behan the widow of the late Brendan Behan. Frequent visitors to this home were Myles na Gopaleen and the poet Robert Greacon. Over the last 20 plus years the house has been divided into 2 flats but could easily be converted back as one residence. Many of the original features are still intact including the high ceilings with moulded cornicing, period marble fireplaces and beautiful working window shutters. This sale represents the chance to put your own stamp on what could be a stand out Victorian town residence with distinction. There is a south facing garden, triangular in shape, to the rear and off street car parking.
Prime location on Donnybrook’s main thoroughfare close to the entrance to the Hampton Hotel (formerly Sachs) and the adjoining Royal Hospital. There are a host of local amenities on the doorstep including shops, restaurants, cafes, Donnybrook Fare, Herbert Park, Upper Leeson Street, Donnybrook Stadium and the city centre is very closeby. Dublin’s primary business and shopping districts including St. Stephen’s Green are all a pleasant walk from the property along with numerous sporting clubs. The area is well served with many of the best regarded primary and post primary schools within walking distance of the house.
