BUILT ON THE site of a former paper mill dating back to the Georgian era, 1 The Mill is a one-of-a-kind property from the outset. 

Located in the exclusive development of Bolton Park, Rathfarnham, Number 1 is a stand-out: the contemporary architecture takes in the original stone walls that remain on the site, and the house is impeccably interior designed inside.

The house comes to the market fully furnished, making it a very attractive option for someone who’s looking for a new property that they can move straight into.

Since undergoing renovations, Number 1 has been designed and restored to the highest standard while still maintaining many of its original period features, like those stone walls outside, and the barrelled ceilings within.

These features blend seamlessly into the modern surroundings introduced by designer Roisin Lafferty through the form of unique light fixtures and furnishings – including an eye-catching pastel pink couch.

The open-plan kitchen and dining room reflects the ample size of the property, with polished concrete floors, polished plaster walls and an expansive centre island made of Marquina marble. Appliances includes a Siemens electric oven, NEFF fridge/freezer and NEEF cooker. 

A living room, lounge, utility room, services room and downstairs bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe.

High quality finishes throughout the property include brushed chrome ironmongery, solid oak stairs and parquet flooring in the living room. 

As a period property, Number 1 is exempt from a Building Energy Rating (BER) certificate, but features double glazed windows, high levels of roof, wall and floor insulation and a modern gas heating system, so you’ll still be living in a sustainable home.

Outside the property, the exterior design is equally impressive with a stylish private courtyard and a Grecian-inspired tiled garden terrace and seating area.

For families, there are several schools within walking distance, while nearby Dublin Bus links give ease of access to the city centre and beyond. The drive to the heart of the capital will take less than a half an hour, if you don’t fancy taking public transport.
