29 and 30 Fitzwilliam Square, South City Centre, Dublin 2

Sale Agreed


Numbers 29 and 30 are located on the favoured south side of Fitzwilliam Square in the heart of Georgian Dublin.

Every conceivable amenity offered by the city centre is within easy access. Public transport links include LUAS (Green Line), DART and multiple Dublin Bus Routes.

Although many Fitzwilliam Square properties are in office use although there has, in recent years, been an emerging trend of returning the magnificent Georgian buildings to their original residential purpose.

Numbers 29 and 30 Fitzwilliam Square comprise two interconnecting, four-storey over garden level, terraced Georgian buildings with a rectangular site to the rear which currently includes a two-storey over basement mews office and parking for approximately 15 cars. The combined gross internal area of the two front buildings is c. 1,123 sq.m. (12,088 sq.ft.).

The front buildings are currently rented to an English Language School. Full vacant possession will be available in January 2018. Although the properties have been in commercial use for many years, they retain an array of beautiful, original features including ornate centre pieces and cornices, beautifully detailed door surrounds, original bow windows (number 30), original doors, timber sliding sash windows and other period details.

Planning Permission has been granted for the demolition of the mews offices, the construction of two exceptional mews houses and for the separation of the front buildings returning to office use. It is, however, an ambition of the City Development Plan to see properties such as these return to their original residential use. It is likely, therefore, that planning permission to change the front buildings back to residential would easily be obtained.

This is a unique opportunity to own four houses on Fitzwilliam Square.

Town Planning
