THIS GEORGIAN PROPERTY is not only superbly designed, but it sits pretty on one of Dublin’s most beautiful squares. Number 26 Mountpleasant Square was purchased in 2006, and since then it has been extended to a sizable 200 sq m/2,153 sq ft.

This unique residence is on sale for €1.2 million.

The stylish home combines period detail from the Georgian era with colourful, contemporary design.

Large glass doors mean the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area is flooded with light, and the space opens out onto a manicured garden. This outdoor green space, though small, is divided into three tiers and is as striking as it is beautiful.

The four-level property retains much of its Georgian splendour, especially in the living spaces.

Built in the early part of the nineteenth century, Number 26 has kept the original coving, high ceilings, and sash style windows of the past. In the kitchen, this is balanced by terrazzo style flooring, a polished stone breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom, overlooking the gardens below, features attractive sash windows and vintage radiators, while the converted attic area is home to a shower room, and plenty of space for another bedroom.
