Somers' home goes on sale for €1.175m

Capital's suburbs in focus as some sought-after addresses come on the market including a house once owned by former President Mary Robinson

IRISH Stock Exchange boss Deirdre Somers is selling her house on Marlborough Road in Donnybrook, Dublin.

The four-bedroom, two-storey over-basement terraced home is on the market for €1.175m.

Tastefully renovated to a very high standard, there is a spacious rear garden with a sunken patio area that is ideal for outdoor dining, while a recent large kitchen/dining-room extension will be of interest to buyers who enjoy indoor entertaining.


AVID sailor and founder of currency risk management firm Lee Overlay Partners Adrian Lee is selling his house on Wellington Place in Ballsbridge, Dublin.

Previously home to former President Mary Robinson, the elegant three-bedroom, end-of-terrace redbrick is on the market for €2.2m.

Although built in the 1850s, the property still features a wealth of period detail, despite the kitchen being remodelled and an extensive refurbishment throughout the property in 2002.

Yachting fans are known for being healthy and super-fit and the wooden 'Seomra' in the back garden fitted with a sauna and shower room may appeal to buyers who are keen to stay fit and well toned.


HEITON Group chief operating officer Leo Martin is selling his house on St Lawrence Road in Clontarf.

The imposing, double-fronted Victorian redbrick, featuring two bay windows, is on a leafy residential road in the Dublin suburb and is on the market for €1.8m.

Well-read buyers will appreciate the well-proportioned study that features a wall full of built-in bookshelves.

The study also has double doors leading to the 75-metre long, mature, well-planted rear garden, where there is a deck with electronically operated awning, water feature, utility room, garden shed, garden store and garage.


NINE different neighbours of Westlife's Brian McFadden are selling their houses in the gated community of Drumnigh Wood in Portmarnock, Co Dublin.

Although two are listed as "price on application", the cheapest is no 35, a four-bed semi priced at €595,000.

The three largest and most expensive properties are 5,000sq ft dormer bungalow-style houses. Numbers 1 and 13 have seven bedrooms and are on the market for €1.65m and €1.8m, while no 8, a five-bedroom house on half an acre of rolling lawns with a deck and water feature is priced at €2.2m.


AT another sought-after address, Irish Life and Permanent non-executive directors Danuta Gray and Roy Keenan will no doubt be interested to see how much the homes of five of their neighbours fetch at Eagle Valley in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.

Ranging in price from €875,000 to €2m, numbers 13, 60, 69, 79 and 81 are for sale. Several are Georgian- style, while two are more modern properties; all have spacious accommodation and patios or decks outside that are ideal for sun worshipping and dining.
