65 Mountjoy Square is one of the finest Georgian buildings to come to the market in Dublin City Centre in recent times. This stunning residence offers incredible versatility with a private residence as well as office space. There is also the added benefit of vehicular rear access via a gated laneway.
Upon entering no.65, it is clear to see that there has been a significant time and care taken to restore this fine home to the highest of standards. There are beautiful Georgian details throughout including the stunning ceiling coving, restored sash windows, and original doors dating back to the late 1700 s.
The house is currently configured as a private residence with office space at the hall and basement levels. The first floor features two formal interconnecting reception rooms with stunning period features including ornate ceiling coving and roses, impressively tall sash windows, hardwood floors and a ceiling height of 4.6m / 15 ft (approx.). The second and third floors house the perfectly contained private residence with an additional reception room, main kitchen, and two charming bedrooms, both ensuite. There is also a separate laundry room atop the house on the third floor. There are views of Mountjoy Square Park from each level, each slightly more different than the last, with the top floor offering views across the rooftops of the city centre.
At the rear of the entrance hall there is access to an annex garden room and canteen leading via stairs to the basement. This is currently temporarily configured as an apartment, with living accommodation and kitchen, a generous bedroom and ensuite shower room below. There is direct access to the rear garden from the garden room. Above the annex is a superb roof terrace that is accessed through the attractive French doors off the first floor return.
The basement offices have been separated from the main residence by a temporary stud wall and are accessed from the lower courtyard to the front. This level briefly comprises of an entrance hall, large front room, canteen, two more offices, bathroom and wc. This area can be reconnected to the main residence via the basement rooms in the garden annex. It could be converted into a separate two bedroom apartment, subject to planning permission.
To the rear there is off-street parking for at least two cars. An original red brick wall splits the garden and offers a rustic centrepiece with mature ivy and contrasting steel support structure. There was previously planning permission for a mews property to be built at the rear, offering further potential to the new owners - subject to securing planning permission.
All in all, this is one of the finest homes to come to the market in Dublin City Centre in quite some time. We would highly recommend viewing to truly appreciate it.
