This three-storey Dublin townhouse is an oasis in the heart of the city

This home has been brought slap-bang into the present day.

ACCORDING TO THE Oxford English Dictionary, a mews is ‘a row or street of houses or flats that have been converted from stables or built to look like former stables.’

We would say this ‘mews’ in Baggot Lane in Dublin might have missed the mark a little.

But that’s ok.

Because… look at it.

It’s a mews alright, but not as we know it.

This mews at 116 Baggot Lane is technically a three-storey, three-bedroom townhouse with four bathrooms on the market for €1,500,000.

It’s been brought slap-bang into the present day with materials such as zinc cladding and double-height glazing.

Inside, it’s a light-filled dream – as far from a stable-like building as you can imagine.

With a neutral palette throughout the interior and features such as exposed brick arches,  solid oak floors and polished stone detailing, there’s no way you’re letting a horse in here.
