Wander through this Irish townhouse filled with timeless elegance

11 images

The look of this chic Irish townhouse is described by its owner as ‘a combination of old and new’ and it is exemplified perfectly in the home that she shares with her husband and three children. Here, period features including mouldings, fireplaces, and shuttered windows sit effortlessly alongside roomy sofas, artisan furnishings and sun-washed spaces.

It took two years for them to find their ideal home – this four-storey property with meandering garden and chic drawing room. ‘The previous owners had done a sympathetic job of modernising the place, adding a large extension that leads out to the garden. It was the mix of elegance and flexible space that appealed.’
