Dating from circa 1725, no.14 Bachelors Walk can lay claim to a long and rich heritage right in the heart of Dublin's fair city. Bachelors Walk was laid out in c.1680 as an extension of Ormond Quay with the building of residences starting in the early seventeenth century by wealthy merchants. This house is one of the few to survive the demolitions of the 1980s. In a former life this building has been home to Lamprey & Co (Engineers & Plumbers c.1850) and Edward Butler (Purveyor of Antiques c.1980). In recent years it has been run as a boutique guest house. Overlooking the river Liffey this tall four-storey over basement period residence features a ruled-and-lined rendered façade with rusticated rendered soldier quoins and sash windows. Granite steps with wrought-iron railings lead up to an eighteenth-century front door with fan light and a Victorian shopfront. Extending to c.3,660 sqft/340 m2 overall, the accommodation today has a more contemporary look and feel that is at the same time sympathetic to the period features and character of this fine residence. Modern enhancements and improvements to the property have included mechanical and electrical services, replacement timber frame sash windows, new flooring and bathroom suites throughout. The building is also provided with an L1 fire detection and alarm system. Currently the accommodation is arranged as follows: Basement: Ancillary Room, Bathroom, Walk-in Wardrobe, Understairs Closet, Storage Room Ground Floor: Entrance hall, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen. First Floor: Two Bedrooms and Bathroom Second Floor: Two Bedrooms and Bathroom Third Floor: One Bedroom with En Suite. Bathroom and Utility Room with Immersion Tank Fourth Floor: Converted Loft/Attic Room This riverside city centre location is adjacent to both O'Connell Bridge and the Ha' penny Bridge and across the river from Temple Bar. The multicultural melting pot that is contemporary Dublin is literally on your doorstep. Trinity College, St Stephen's Green and the thriving docklands quarter are all within comfortable walking distance in addition to the prime retail and entertainment districts of Grafton Street and Henry Street. There is also excellent transport connectivity with bus, rail and Luas services all adjacent.
