The ground floor retail has excellent display frontage on to D'Olier Street - one of Dublin's premier streets - and is just 50 metres from O'Connell Bridge.
The 1st & 2nd upper floors are currently in office use and are divided into two to three offices per floor. They are dual aspect, bright, spacious and benefit from excellent natural light coming into the well-lit hallway and stairwells throughout the building.
The third floor has an office to the front and also accommodates a kitchenette and ladies & gents toilet facilities. The fourth floor is in office use. Also, a new roof was fitted on the building in 2016.
The offices benefit from a mix of Georgian period features and modern specifications including newly renovated and decorated plaster and painted walls and ceilings, suspended tube lighting and carpeted flooring.
The building is BER exempt. The property is listed as a protected building in the record of Protected Structures and D'Olier Street is within an architectural conservation area under the Dublin City Development Plan.
The building has a Gross Internal Area (GIA) of 505 SQ Mtr or 5,436 Sq Ft - equivalent to a capital value at the asking price of just 285 PSF.
