THIS DETACHED REDBRICK home is a stunning building – and it’s also the former headquarters of one Bertie Ahern.

The former Taoiseach had his base here for much of his career.

Now, it’s up for sale for €595,000 by private treaty through Lisney. The ad says it is “suitable for a variety of uses”, including, one assumes, political activity.

The building was mentioned by Bertie during his  Mahon Tribunal evidence.

In March 2012, the St Luke’s trustees, the so-called ‘Drumcondra mafia’ agreed to transfer control of the building back to the Fianna Fáil party.

With off-street car parking and a private garden to the rear, it’s a prime property on Lower Drumcondra Road.

Lisney describe it as a “high-profile” detached property, pointing out that it was constructed circa 1930, and is “elegantly proportioned” throughout.

It was extended on the ground level a few years ago, and is currently laid out as office space.

It has planning permission to be used as an office with residential accommodation, but the future owner may have to get further permission from Dublin City Council if they want to use it as a private residence or for another purpose.
