A most appealing mid terraced Georgian property that celebrates many features of its era, offering well-proportioned, bright accommodation laid out over three floors. Superbly located in this highly desirable area adjacent to all of the amenities of both Rathmines and Rathgar villages, yet within walking distance of Dublin city centre.
