Past and present in Rathfarnham

You'll find interesting outposts of past rural histories in many of Dublin's suburbs.

Among them is Leighton Lodge, which -- as the name suggests -- was most likely built as an entrance outpost to a country estate house.

Today it's a combination of past and present styles with the Victorian "villa" front style of the 19th Century, while the back looks just like a spacious contemporary family home thanks to its extension and modernisation in more recent decades.

The double-fronted detached abode has recently been renovated and includes 2,500 sq ft of accommodation with three bedrooms, a playroom, an entrance hall, a living room with period ceiling rose and coving, a kitchen/dining room also with period ceiling relief work, and a living room/sitting room with an open fireplace.

Douglas Newman Good (01-4909000) seek €745,000.
