This Georgian house in Ballsbridge is a catch

It comes with its own catch, of course… it’s quite pricey.

It’s located in the heart of the city centre, is covered in ivy, has a pool and an ‘engine room’, no less.

The house, which used to belong to Michael Slazenger of Slazenger sportswear fame, was built in 1798 and is an excellent example of Georgian architecture.
