IT’S NOT OFTEN that a property like Rathgar’s 1 Orwell Park appears on the Irish market.

Dating back to the 1870s, the home is spread over 3,400 sq ft/316 sq m, and seamlessly marries old with new.

Thanks to large-scale renovation and redecoration – including a new open-plan kitchen and the conversion of one bedroom into an additional bathroom – the property is now the perfect fit for any buyer looking to upgrade or make space for a growing family.

In the property’s entrance hall, original period features are immediately noticeable. Ceiling roses, coving and cornices can be spotted here and in the lounge, as well as ornate marble mantelpieces.

Walk through to the Bof-designed kitchen, though, and you’ll be greeted by sleek high-spec units, a quartz worktop, integrated dishwashers and recessed lighting with a truly contemporary feel.

This fusion of classic and contemporary continues throughout the property’s four bedrooms and bathrooms, creating a unique home that’s a testament to the previous owner’s vision.

The master bedroom, located upstairs, features an Oriel window looking towards the Dublin mountains, and has a dressing room just off it.

Outside, there is off-street parking for three or four cars, as well as a magnificent garden. Surrounded by stone walls, the large green area is home to mature trees and provides a great place to relax.
