Apartments in the British Embassy are up for sale

They’re pretty fancy, too.

MALTON HOUSE HAS some very interesting history behind it.

Built in the 1800s, it was soon to become the British Embassy in Ireland.

In the 1990s, the embassy was converted into luxury apartments and two additional blocks – Grafton House and Linden House – were constructed beside Malton house at the same time.


Set off the salubrious roads of Shrewsbury and Ailsebury, you’re in good company with over 30 other embassies in the neighbourhood.
