AN ELEGANT FIVE-BEDROOM detached home located on the leafy Temple Road in Dartry, Ellington is influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century.

Designed to perfectly complement the style of the nearby choir building in the leafy grounds of St Philip’s Church, the house is named after renowned American jazz composer Duke Ellington, who was at his musical peak during the Arts and Craft movement.

It’s on sale for €2.3 million.
