This villa style artisan residence, which dates back to the 1850’s comes to the market full of charm and character, in a secluded Victorian hideway just off Bath Avenue.

Both Sandymount Village and Ballsbridge with their array of local shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants are within walking distance. The IFSC, City Centre, Google building, Grand Canal, the Aviva Stadium and 3 Arena are all nearby landmarks to name a few. There are several national schools in the area and Sandymount Strand is also within walking distance.
