LOCATED OFF MAIN Street in Lusk, Co Dublin, The Old Post Office is a unique four-bed property.

Built circa 1860, the residence previously operated as a post office (as the name suggests), and today stands as a family home with a contemporary design.

The property has been upgraded and extended to 2,500 sq ft and includes a private patio to the rear, while the interior features a monochromatic grey theme. It comes to the market ready for moving day, and is priced at €560,000.

There are several living spaces throughout the accommodation, with the first being the lounge to the right of the hallway. There’s a feature electric fire in here – making for a cosy feel – as well as a TV point with built-in shelving units and laminated wood flooring.

Across the hall is the home gym, which could easily be transformed into a family room or home office thanks to the inclusion of another electric fire.

Further down the hall is the kitchen, where there are high gloss units, a four-seater breakfast bar and integrated appliances. An archway leads to the dining room, where Velux windows allow for plenty of natural light.

Those who enjoy hosting guests are sure to appreciate the separate bar, which is fully equipped and comes with an electric fire, ample seating space and an adjoining bathroom. Double doors lead to the sunroom, which is particularly spacious and benefits from a log-burning stove and doors to the rear garden.
