'Beverston', at Mount Anville Road in Dublin 14, is shown on the first-edition ordnance survey maps looking almost exactly the same as it does today.
It's a Georgian mansion, reportedly built in the 1700s, and it's a substantial 5,9290 sq ft in size, with most rooms having views of Dublin Bay and city. The main reception room is an open-plan drawing room and dining room, with pillars between them. The drawing room has a marble fireplace and bow windows overlooking the garden.
Double doors lead from the dining room to the kitchen/ breakfast room, and from there you can reach a tile-floored conservatory with access to the side and back gardens.
There's also a sitting room on this level, with dual-aspect windows and a marble fireplace, and there's a utility room to serve the kitchen.
There are seven bedrooms altogether.
Five of them are on the first floor, including the master bedroom which has a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The biggest bedroom is not the master bedroom; it has no en-suite but does have views of the city.
One of the other bedrooms has an en-suite shower room, and there's a family bathroom on this floor as well.
The garden level consists of a red fitted kitchen with a brick archway to a breakfast room, a living room, two bedrooms (one en-suite) and a bathroom.
And as the garden level has its own exterior door, it could be separated off into self-contained accommodation
It's on 0.6 of an acre of grounds, with lawns, mature trees, paved and decked areas, and water features.
And if that's not enough, it's across the road from the entrance to the Deer Park.
Beverston was advertised for auction in 2004, and the guide price then was €3.7m. It's now for sale for €1.55m with DNG Rock Road (01) 283 2900.
