This Georgian Leopardstown home full of country charm is on sale for €2.7 million

This Georgian Leopardstown home full of country charm is on sale for €2.7 million

As well as the beautifully decorated main house, there is also a converted coach house to the rear, which provides extra accommodation.

Built in 1839, Mount Salem is a villa style Georgian home that is full of character. Its owners’ country aesthetic throughout complements the building and its beautiful gardens. 

Secluded from the road thanks to mature trees, you enter the home up a set of granite steps to the front door. The house is single storey over half basement to the front, and two stories at the rear.

The entrance hall leads to the two main reception rooms, the dining and living room. Both of these large spaces have multiple sash windows looking out to the garden, high ceilings and feature fireplaces.

Three bedrooms sit up a half flight of stairs from the entrance hallway, as well as a family bathroom. The two remaining bedrooms are on the garden level.

Also on this lower level are the farmhouse kitchen, with an Aga as its focal point, as well as a cosy family room that leads out to the long conservatory.

The almost one acre garden has several defined zones, including a central courtyard area for outdoor seating, a large lawn, a walled garden, a formal garden, raised vegetable beds and fruit trees.

At the end of the courtyard is the coach house, a converted stable block that provides separate accommodation. It features a large open plan kitchen, living and dining room with French doors, while upstairs there are two bedrooms, each with an ensuite, and a walk-in wardrobe in the main bedroom.

It has a separate entrance from the main driveway, affording privacy from the main house if desired, and it has its own garden and seating area to the front.
