This Victorian home on Ailesbury Road will set you back €6.5 million

Ailesbury Road is one of Dublin’s most affluent residential areas. Lined with trees and with close proximity to the city centre, the Dublin 4 neighbourhood is famous for being the second-most expensive street on the Irish Monopoly board.

If you’ve recently hit the jackpot and would like to make Ailesbury Road your home, have a look at this property available to buy right now.

27 Ailesbury Road

This red-brick Victorian home has been beautifully modernised over the years, all the while maintaining its original period details. Enter via a flight of steps to the entrance hallway; which boasts a recessed arch, wooden shutters, centre rose and intricate cornicing.

From here, pass through to the front-facing drawing room. Here, new owners can enjoy an open, feature fireplace with a white marble surround; as well as a large bay window, working wooden shutters and classic Victorian cornicing.

Double doors connect the drawing room to the equally spacious dining room, which is perfect for entertaining. In addition to its period details, the current owners have styled this room with a 10-seater dining table and overhead chandelier.

For families who need more space, a second family room offers additional seating and dining space. This light-filled room is fitted with a TV port for entertainment.

According to estate agent Savills, the kitchen-cum-breakfast room has been recently refitted. It now has extensive wall and floor storage, a centre island and separate pantry. What’s more, a dishwasher, American-style fridge/freezer, electric stove, oven, and microwave are included.

This bright, roomy kitchen also comes with a white marble fireplace, hearth, white marble countertop, and recessed lighting. Elsewhere, a laundry room is plumbed for a washer/dryer, while a utility room offers an additional stove and sink.


This Ailesbury Road property spans three floors; across which there are five double bedrooms and five bathrooms (including four modern ensuites).

The master bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe with extensive storage and hanging space. It also has an ensuite bathroom with marble floors, double sinks, bidet, WC, bath, shower, and a heated towel rail.

Each of the large bedrooms is tastefully decorated by the current owners, meaning the new owners will have no renovation or redecoration costs (unless they wish to do so).


Granite pillars, which are set with wrought-iron gates, open into the large, gravelled driveway. According to Savills, parking is available for five-to-six cars, while a large garage (measuring 368 sq ft), can hold a further two cars.

Out back, there is a south-facing rear garden which features a well-kept lawn (perfect for young children or pets to play). There is also a generous granite patio, ideal for al fresco dining.

At €6.5 million, 27 Ailesbury Road doesn’t come cheap. Would you say it’s worth the price?
