Friday fantasy home: Lodge an appeal for funding

Logging onto can be akin to listening to Damien Rice on loop as I recalculate our ever rising negative equity. Then I pretend that I have won the Lotto and go about choosing homes for my generous budget.

Kensington Lodge (€1.2 million squids) on Grove Park, Rathmines, is very different to its more traditional Victorian neighbours and looks like it's hot off the pages of LivingEtc.

Located near the Grand Canal end of Rathmines, the four-bedroom Queen Anne-style lodge has 3,000 sq. of meticulously restored space and is jam-packed with ornate features.

P.S. Tomorrow's Lotto jackpot is heading for €2.5 million.


  1. Aaaagh Sorcha, I was doing some unrealistic browsing through on Thursday night and saw this house. I nearly cried at how beautiful it is, especially love the stained glass windows. DREAM HOME. Lovin' your blog, keep up the good work. Rebecca. x

  2. Thanks a million, Rebecca! Glad to hear you're enjoying the blog. I too am a sucker for those stunning stained glass windows. Must remember to check my Lotto ticket! S xxx
