Hot Property: Through the yellow door into a dream family home
55 Leeson Park is a period building with character and style.

Exterior 2

WHEN IT COMES to location, 55 Leeson Park has it all. Located in the leafy suburbs of Ranelagh, it’s a stone’s throw from the nearby village, and just a short walk from the canal.

This end-of-terrace period home, for sale for €1.9m, is within walking distance of the city centre, but you’d never know how near you are to the action.

With four bedrooms – one of which spans the width of the house – and three bathrooms, the two storey over basement Victorian property is on a quiet tree-lined avenue that’s a joy to look at.

The property boasts so many lovely features, it’s hard to know where to start.

Drawing Dining Room Drawing and dining rooms Drawing and dining rooms

On the first floor, there are the grand connected drawing room and living room, accessed through the main entrance hall.

Kitchen Breakfast Room

Then there is the spacious kitchen, with its fitted cabinets and granite worktops. It has space to eat a cosy family dinner, and in warmer weather to open the double doors and gaze into the garden beyond.

The house has been kept in a graceful period style, with so many original features intact, and the renovation that the current owners put in place 25 years ago is holding firm.


Then there’s the back garden, which is an oasis of calm with its own side entrance and garage.

This impressive space is filled with mature flowering plants and shrubs, while the manicured lawn completes the gorgeous look.

Garden 2

It’s a relaxing, bright, and well-kept space that’s a key selling point to the home.

The current owners moved in 25 years ago, and raised a family here. It’s easy to see what a lovely house this would be for a growing family, with plenty of space for guests.

Entrance Hall

The master bedroom spans the width of the house, with huge amounts of space for storage.

There are also lovely views out the huge windows onto the garden and street below.


This is a grand redbrick home, and one that has clearly been treasured by its current owners.

But it’s also welcoming and warm, with well-sized rooms, original features and a fantastic garden.

It’s a dream home for those who dream big.

55 Leeson Park is for sale for €1.9million by private treaty through Savills.
