Full of distinctive features and with an impressive Japanese-style back garden, this home combines period charm with modern family living.

Full of unique touches and built around 1850, Lammermoor is a beautiful home located between the villages of Ballsbridge and Sandymount. The exterior has plenty of decorative details and the driveway is laid with fan-shaped Portuguese granite cobble.

The entrance features a cast-iron fireplace, with panelling and an arch leading through to the stairway. The dining room and drawing room in the original part of the house feature front-facing bay windows, ornate mantelpieces and ceiling roses. They are currently painted in neutral shades, making them feel bright and helping them to flow with the more modern spaces in the house.

The contemporary living space to the back of the house includes a kitchen and breakfast room with maple and cherry wood flooring. This leads to the ‘pavilion’, a living area with a vaulted ceiling and full-length glass doors. These open fully and a teak deck continues outside to create a wonderful indoor/outdoor space.

On this level, there is also a bar area with a counter and sink, as well as a utility room and a large playroom. The carved wooden staircase leads to the five double bedrooms, all of which have built-in wardrobes. Three also have en-suite bathrooms.

The back garden has been carefully landscaped in a Japanese style, complete with a lily pond. There is an outdoor seating area for alfresco dining and the lush planting includes palms, ferns, acers and holly, as well as a plum tree dating from the 1850s.

The house is located just a two-minute walk from the Sandymount DART station, and only a 40-minute walk from the city centre so is perfect for a speedy commute. It is also located close to the RDS, The Intercontinental Hotel and Facebook’s Dublin offices.  There are also a number of schools in the area. All this comes at a price, as at €2.695 million, which is down from the original price of €2.75 million, this house is certainly not cheap. Click through our gallery above for the full tour.
