PROPERTY PARTNERS O'BRIEN SWAINE is proud to present to market this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Irish heritage in a breath-taking, highly desirable part of South Co Dublin. Nestled at the foothills of the Dublin mountains, in the upmarket suburb of Kilternan is this architectural gem known as The Old Post Office. This truly charming, mid-19th century residence features in Ireland’s National Inventory of Architectural Heritage and is sure to captivate viewers’ hearts with its unprecedented character. Architectural highlights of this picture-perfect, detached, four-bedroom home include a distinctive granite ashlar façade and ornate period ceiling roses and coving, together with Connemara granite and Carrara marble fireplaces. To the rear is a superb South West facing garden which benefits from afternoon and evening sun.This incredible home offers an unparalleled opportunity and really must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
The Old Post Office offers the bonus feature of incorporating both a residential and commercial element (3012 sq ft combined), offering potential buyers the exciting prospect of an income- generating element to this property or the opportunity to extend the living quarters of the existing house. The commercial wing of the property has previously accommodated a post office, an art gallery, a café and most recently a bridal shop but this space – together with an adjoining car parking area - could equally be repurposed to augment residential potential of The Old Post Office, subject to planning permission. Despite its vintage, The Old Post Office is in good order, having been substantially renovated in 2006 to include the addition of new double glazed hard wood sash windows, rewiring, replumbing and dry lining insulation.
