This Dublin home with an incredible reading room is on the market for €1.45 million

With bookshelves that need a ladder to reach the top and a cosy spot to read, it’s every book-lover’s dream.

A recently-built home in Kilternan, South Dublin, The Old Yard is a large family home with a number of enviable features.

You enter the home into a long, bright hallway with a vaulted ceiling. To the left of this space is one of several reception rooms. It has a marble fireplace and vaulted ceiling, but its most eye-catching feature is a bookcase that is the full height of the tall room. A mezzanine level space provides yet more shelving, as well as a reading room to enjoy your books peacefully.

There is another living space with large windows looking out to the garden, while adjacent is a spacious dining room. The kitchen and breakfast room has oak units and granite countertops, as well as a Belfast sink and a breakfast bar. There is a utility room and separate pantry off this space.
