A 300-year-old stable block in South County Dublin has been transformed into a boutique housing development.

A 300-year-old stable block in South County Dublin has been transformed into a boutique housing development.

The Stables, situated on The Rise in Mount Merrion, features 10 luxurious homes – 7 within the original stables, and 3 newly built mews properties sitting opposite, overlooking a beautifully landscaped courtyard.

The development comprises 2 and 3-bedroom homes, ranging in size between 117 sq m/ 1264 sq ft – 181 sq m/ 1947 sq ft each incorporating contemporary interior design. In keeping with the heritage of the site, natural materials have been expertly sourced.

The stable block has been restored to incorporate its listed façade, and each home is expertly finished with lime render, handmade conservation windows and slate roofs. High levels of insulation in the walls, floors and roofs and high levels of air-tightness via high performance windows and doors ensure a comfortable living environment and reduced energy costs.

The 3 newly built, 2-bedroom mews houses are contemporary in design with light filled double height reception rooms and first floor sun terraces.

Parking for two cars within the courtyard gardens will be provided for each home and a separate bike store will be built in addition.

Beverly Ensor, Development Manager with sales agents, Savills Ireland comments:

“The Stables is the perfect blend of old and new and should appeal to anyone looking for a private, low density development in an established Dublin suburb packed with characterful period features and tasteful, contemporary design”.

Mount Merrion has an abundance of amenities from its excellent schools to its many wonderful pubs and restaurants. The N11 provides direct access to the city centre and beyond and the neighbourhood is served by a first-rate bus network.
