This Victorian mansion in Foxrock is for sale... and it comes with a granny flat*

*Sort of.

WESTMINSTER ROAD MIGHT not be a location you’d have thought of to buy a property on, but it’s nowhere near that particular Abbey, promise.

Actually it’s in Foxrock in Dublin, and this mansion is quite a gem of Victorian architecture. What’s more, it comes with a coachhouse/mews that could totally be turned into a ‘granny flat’ – for a very swanky granny.
