VICTORIAN HOMES ARE a frequent sight in Dublin city. Take a walk around the leafy suburbs of Ranelagh, Rathgar and Terenure and rows of grand redbricks, with granite steps leading to the entrances, make up most of the tree-lined streets.

A little more rare, however, is a period home that has been so tastefully and thoughtfully refurbished as 5 Leeson Park. The future owner of this luxurious five-bed in Ranelagh will have little, if any, renovating to do.

For those interested, this pristine home in on sale for €3,500,000.

Through the front door, an impressive hallway acts the precursor for the rest of this home with its polished wooden floor, archway and a range of well-maintained period details.

Each of the ground floor lounge areas are flooded with light thanks to tall sash windows. White marble fireplaces with cast-iron open fires and timber floors link these two rooms when it comes to style. Double doors open from one room to the other, making this an ideal open space that’s perfect for entertaining.

The kitchen by German company, Poggenpohl, is minimalist and hardworking. White gloss cabinets offset by grey quartz worktops and an island ensure plenty of workspace, storage and a wonderful flow. Miele appliances stay hidden to keep the home’s busiest room clean-lined and clutter-free.

The kitchen is part of a brightly lit open plan space that’s also home to a dining area with access to the back garden and an extra, more casual seating area.


Sharing the ground floor is a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, as well as a roomy utility room that also has a connected guest bathroom.

A flight of stairs up to the first floor leads to two more double bedrooms, including the master suite and family bathroom and its freestanding bath, double sink and views of the back garden, thanks to cleverly positioned doors that open on to a balcony.

The master bedroom exudes hotel vibes with its beautiful en suite bathroom and large walk in wardrobe. A polished wooden floor and a large sash window keep the space fresh and airy, guaranteeing you a great night’s sleep.


The back bedrooms in this house all have views over the long and secluded garden below. It’s landscaped, yes, but there’s nothing too extravagant here – a single stretch of grass, a parallel paved area and some elegant shrubs.

With Ranelagh village just down the road, Leeson Park close to great cafés, restaurants and bars, plus plenty of parks and access to the rest of Dublin via bus and Luas.

Residents will have their pick of primary and secondary schools in the area, while the city centre is a ten minute walk away. Leeson Park might just be the Dublin dream of period style, quiet village life and city convenience.

 5 Leeson Park, Ranelagh, Dublin 6, is on the market for €3,500,000 through Barry Finnegan via Daft.ie.
