Glenthorne on Sandford Road in the south Dublin suburb of Ranelagh sold for €3.65m at auction yesterday, almost 30 per cent above the guide price of €2.75million. The lavishly refurbished Victorian five-bed, with mews to the rear, came on the market in early April when it was featured on our property pages.

An online video of the property (above) became one of the most viewed videos this year on irishtimes.com.

There were just two bidders at the auction conducted by Peter Kenny of Colliers International. Bidding opened at €2.5 million, and rose in increments of €100,000 to €3.45 million, and by €50,000 increments thereafter. The property was bought in trust by a solicitor from Arthur Cox. 134 Sandford Road was owned by Niall Wall, chief executive of Ardagh Group.
