An interesting infill residential site in Rathgar, Dublin, that may be redeveloped for a high-end apartment scheme hits the market this week for €5 million through joint agents Knight Frank and JP & M Doyle.

The site includes a family home and guesthouse which combined sit on 0.5 acres in one of the most desirable locations in Dublin 6.

One of the properties, Ardagh House, is a 23-bedroom detached guesthouse with 882.5sq m (9,500sq ft) of space over three floors on a site of 0.3 acres. It is located at 1 Highfield Road, and comes with plenty of car-parking to the front and a walled garden to the rear.

The agents suggest the Victorian era property could be converted or redeveloped for luxury apartments subject to planning permission. It is zoned Z2, to protect or improve residential amenities, and is situated close to Rathmines and Rathgar villages, and is a short walk from the Luas at Cowper Road.

To the rear of Ardagh House is a detached four-bedroom house with 167sq m (1,800sq ft) of space sitting on 0.2 acres at 8B Sunbury Gardens in Dartry.

Called The Beeches, it has planning permission to be redeveloped for six two-bedroom apartments over three floors, with sizes from 99.25sq m (1,068sq ft) up to 125sq m (1,345sq ft).
