Number 1 is a fine example of a Victorian building. Formally occupied by the well-known restaurant, Marcels, the property is in immaculate condition, having undergone an extensive fit-out by the current tenant, with an emphasis on luxury and design. The entire building has been meticulously transformed by Paula Callan, who is widely regarded as a market leader in the field of beauty.

Lot two - The Coach House - is a charming two-bedroom Victorian period redbrick property. Ideally located, the property offers spacious and well-presented accommodation over two levels and extends to 860 sq ft. It is further enhanced by a private city garden and off-street parking for up to three cars behind electronic gates. The Coach House is available for sale individually for a guide price of over €950,000 and has full planning permission for an extension of 615 sq ft.

Located within a short walk of both Ballsbridge and Donnybrook, the property is near Herbert Park, the RDS show grounds, Aviva Stadium and Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club. The area is also home to a range of high-profile office occupiers including Bank of Ireland, Sky and LinkedIn.

Colliers International director Michelle McGarry says: "This is a rare opportunity for an investor to acquire a prime piece of real estate in Dublin 4.

"With long term income from both Callan & Co and the Coach House, we expect strong interest."
