Description

MOVEHOME ESTATE AGENTS are honoured to present one of the very first and finest early Georgian mansions to be built in the City, when construction commenced in Dublin around the early 1720's. Number 7 Henrrietta Street was completed in 1735 by one of the richest men in the country and throughout its 290 year history, it has played host to a wealth of fascinating occupants and witnessed a changing Ireland, the ebb and flow of our countries fortunes, a famine, the emergence of an independent Republic and the ever changing recent decades.

Over the last few years, the exquisite property which spans over 8,210 ft / 762.73 m on five separate levels with gorgeous proportions, was beautifully refurbished throughout, sensitively restored and wonderfully maintained by the current owner. A perfect balance of elegant accommodation awaits to include four gracious reception rooms on the ground and first floor, each with exceptionally high ceilings, period fireplaces and original wooden flooring. No. 7 also offers a selection of modern additions, such as a separate cocktail bar, a wine cellar, a spacious office, a music lounge and another kitchen and dining area on the very top floor.

The basement level hosts the original kitchen area and breakfast room with a large period fireplace prominently located in the center. There is another family living room, the wine cellar, bathroom and CH room, and the main hallway with access to both the front door which leads to the Street and the rear doors which lead to the tunnels under the formal garden above, to access the rear site.

Over the gracious reception rooms, the top two floors play host to an exquisite selection of 6 spacious bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite and the other large rooms are used as a reading room, a music room and a separate living room that enjoys the views of this historical timeless street. The master suite is the largest room and located on the third floor with a generous walk in wardrobe and bathroom. The very top floor to the rear is another cosy living area, with a dining alcove, separate kitchen and leads onto another two generous master bedrooms and another spacious lounge area to the front.

The meticulous nature of the restoration has emphasised the beauty of the building, while the exacting attention to detail of the owners and their craftspeople is breathtaking, there are still a few finishing touches to complete. Owing to the extensive rebuilding and renovation works the house is now presented in excellent condition and benefits from the installation of current high specification wiring, plumbing and heating systems providing an efficiency of running costs and comfort not often associated with such a fine period home.

The rear site to the very back of the property which originally hosted stables and outhouses for the domestic staff in the 18th & 19th century's, is accessed from a tunnel under the garden and was acquired in recent years by the owner to regain the original total plot of land. This 350sq. mtr. site is another development opportunity and subject to planning, could be developed for apartments, or a mews or simply private off street parking, as it is accessed directly from large gates onto Henrietta Lane.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a historical home of distinction, located just off the North of Capel Street. If Dublin is a Georgian City then number 7 Henrietta Street is the inspiration and the blueprint for all of the development that followed, as it was the very first Georgian Street constructed. The property is one of the largest houses in the City and remains one of the best Georgian mansions, Dublin City will ever have to offer.
