WITH 3,068 SQ FT of accommodation, eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a sizeable back garden, 104 Drumcondra Road Lower is no ordinary Dublin redbrick. 

On the market for €1,100,000 through Gallagher Quigley, Arranmore House currently operates as a B&B. But with some time and care, it could be transformed into a large and comfortable family home.

Dating back to 1872, many original period features are still intact here, including the tiling in the hallway and marble fireplaces throughout. 

A narrow pathway in the neat front garden leads to the front door. As soon as you step inside, the property’s colourful and creative character makes itself known, thanks to the decorative plasterwork and geometric floor tiles.

To the right, there are two interconnecting reception rooms. The first living room features a beautiful double-height bay window, while the adjoining dining room has a set of French doors which open to the west-facing rear garden. Both rooms feature original marble fireplaces and varnished floorboards.

Continuing down the hallway, the accommodation has been extended to include a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as a utility room and guest toilet. There’s ample storage space in the kitchen, including an exposed brick fireplace with integrated shelving, while the living area is perfect for evenings spent unwinding.

Upstairs, there are eight bedrooms over three floors. Six of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, equipped with modern sanitaryware and tiling. The master bedroom is particularly impressive and spans the full width of the house, with a tall bay window filling the room with natural light. 

Each of the bedrooms is in excellent condition, with the option to renovate to create larger spaces or to change the purpose of some rooms to accommodate remote working, exercising, young kids looking for a place to spread out their toys, or teens looking for a hangout space.
