Peek into a three-storey wonder on a very prestigious road

Take a tour around.


FOR MOST OF us, a trip to the Aviva Stadium means a trek from some part of Dublin or the rest of the country.

Not so if you have the address 20 Lansdowne Road, where the stadium is just a stone’s throw from your house.

This €2,950,000 three-storey home is huge, with five bedrooms, a massive back garden, and a substantial basement.

The back gardens on this street are so large that the next-door neighbours have even built their own mews at the end of theirs.

Sometimes, older Georgian buildings promise much space from the outside, but fail to live up to this on the inside.

Not so here, where the wide hallway gives way to two large reception rooms.

Go upstairs and you have two floors of bedrooms to contend with, one of which – the master – has a bathroom dominated by a huge bath.

Luxury, indeed.

It also has prime views of the street below, and if you look to your left, you’ll find the stadium.

Then downstairs there is a really spacious basement, which is currently a den, dining area, and kitchen area.

The heart of the home is down here, and this is also how you access the outside.


If heaven to you is cosying up beside a roaring open fire, you’ll have nine fireplaces to choose from in this house.

The current owners really love wooden floors and stone walls, and the house has been refurbished in recent years.

But there’s lots of room here to put your own stamp on things, paring them back or adding to the decor as you wish.

Aside from the obvious features that the house boasts, it’s the location that’s really incredible here – the RDS is nearby, as are hotels, schools, and shops, and the city centre is minutes away.

It’s a house for someone who loves the city, but wants to be able to have their own city hideaway too.
