As a real-estate photographer it was great to get the chance to do some work on this incredible one-off piece of Dublin’s Georgian history, before it gets a major makeover.
67 Baggot Street Lower is a house that definitely holds lots of stories and history within its walls.
It was home to Thomas Davis of the Young Irelanders, a plaque on the front marks his connection to the property. He lived there from 1830 til 1845. It has been lived in and very sensitively maintained by a Dublin based artist to reflect its former glory, focusing on revealing aspects of its underlying materials and craftsmanship and, above all its generosity of space due to it’s Palladian proportions. Its incredible to see 200-year-old craftsmanship in the brickwork, plaster and joinery. Many of the key features such as the high ceilings, fanlight door and sash windows are original. It has great views of Baggot Street to the front and the neighbouring leafy Grand Canal area to the rear. It’s a very unique bit of Dublin real-estate.
It does have some very tasteful mod cons such as a decent kitchen and comfy bedrooms. The house has 410 square meters of living space over 3 floors with an annex and basement.
Great to spend some time here and imagine the lives that have passed through it.
