This palatial southside home is hiding a swimming pool AND a tennis court

This incredible south Dublin house is a fitness fanatic’s dream with its swimming pool and tennis court.

The Rathgar home has some of the most quirky decor we have seen including multi-patterned tiles which add to its unique charm.

We are obsessed with all the period features including eye-catching plasterwork and ceiling roses, shutters, four-panel doors, and fire surrounds.

The five-bedroom Victorian home has a rather interesting history as it belonged to a prominent barrister Sir James Alexander Ossory Fitzpatrick who was in civil servant in Indian back in the colonial times.

To the back of the house, you will find what is described as a “paradise garden” with a heated outdoor swimming pool, private floodlit championship tennis court, and mature lawn with specimen planted trees.

Once you enter the home you will be greeted by an impressive reception hall with stunning ornate plasterwork and cornice leading through an arch to the inner staircase hall.

To the left, there is a gorgeous living room and there is a drawing room to the back overlooking the swimming pool.

The dining room opens into a large kitchen with a conservatory behind it which provides a light-filled bridge between the house and the playroom, which doubles as the pool changing area.

There is also a butler’s pantry off the dining room along with a utility and shower room.

On the first floor is a bedroom with a stove and going further up a flight of stairs you will find a grand master bedroom, two further excellent double bedrooms, and a bathroom.

Another small set of stairs leads to the fifth bedroom with an antechamber dressing room.
