This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire one of Ballsbridge's landmark homes, situated at the corner of Merrion Road and Ailesbury Park.

This hugely impressive and substantial property, which extends to 4,646 sq. ft./430 sq. m. (approx.) includes very well appointed self-contained medical consulting rooms. The main house provides extremely elegant and extensive accommodation, which in brief includes elegant hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and walk-in cloaks/storeroom. On the first floor are 4 fine double bedrooms and a spacious sitting room/bedroom 5. On the top floor there are a further 2 bedrooms and kitchenette, which is ideally suited as a shower room ensuite.

The surgery to the side of the property, which has its own independent front door, comprises on the ground floor a reception area, surgery, kitchenette, storeroom/workshop, w.c., smaller storeroom and spiral staircase up to a very impressive conservatory, which is currently used as a waiting room.

Though this area of the property was purpose built as a surgery comprising of 80 sq m/860 sq ft (approx.) it would be ideally suited for a variety of uses, including self-contained 2 bed apartment, home office, or medical consulting rooms (subject to planning permission).

The front garden, which is a very good size, provides off-street parking for 4/5 cars and benefits from vehicular access from both Merrion Road to the front and Ailesbury Park to the side. The back garden, which is also a good size, is bordered by mature trees and shrubs which provide great privacy. Accessed off Ailesbury Park is a lock-up garage.

Situated on the corner of Merrion Road and Ailesbury Park, the property enjoys one of Dublin's most convenient locations, with a host of amenities within easy walking distance. Just some of these amenities include The Merrion Shopping Centre, St. Vincent's Private and Public hospitals and the site of the National Children's' Hospital, which are all located directly across the road. Numerous sports clubs such as Elm Park Golf Club, Wanderers RFC, Pembroke and Railway Unions Rugby and Cricket grounds. The R.D.S. showgrounds and home of Leinster Rugby are all within easy reach as are the excellent restaurants, specialty shops and cafés of Ballsbridge and Sandymount. Many of Dublin's premier primary and secondary schools are also close by.
