DNG are delighted to present to the market number 26 Mountjoy Square, constructed by Frederick Darley and Stuccadore and master builder Charles Thorp (former Lord Mayor of Dublin).

Built in 1797, No 26 uniquely retains its original internal composition as well as a number of features. Historians cite the area which is now Mountjoy Square as the encampment of Brian Boru prior to the battle of Clontarf over 1000 years ago. Today 26 is situated only 500m from O'Connell Street and is the epicentre of the rapidly expanding North Georgian Core.

The highly impressive four storey over basement Georgian residence contains a wonderful Adam's fireplace in the main entrance hall, Portland stone cantilever staircase, an extremely rare pair of carved marble chimney pieces with winged Cupid, bow and arrow in hand charging on a chariot, barrel vaulted decorative ceilings & Sienna Marble floors and many more features

Accommodation consists of 663sq/m 7136sq/ft, consisting of five levels (development capacity to the rear). The feature sash windows add an abundance of natural light throughout, original window shutters, decorative coving, original timber flooring, fan lights & six cast iron balconies.

The property is within walking distance to O'Connell Street, Temple Street Children's Hospital, Mater Hospital, IFSC, Luas line, Drumcondra & Connolly Train Stations and centrally positioned on the East side of the soon to be re-developed Mountjoy Square.

The property incorporates bright generously proportioned accommodation throughout. This fine residence has been very well maintained and enhanced by its current owners and is sure to interest buyers seeking a beautiful Georgian building in a much sought after city centre location.

Viewing is very highly recommended.
