Last weekend the Princess and I went to see 12 Henrietta Street as part of Dublin Open House.
I love Henrietta Street, it is full of Georgian faded grandeur; big houses that became tenements and were then left to rot. It’s being slowly reclaimed but it is a long way from gentrification. One of the houses is for sale by auction with a reserve of â‚¬650,000. It’s essentially derelict in an exciting (ahem) urban part of town but massive and completely beautiful. I wonder who might buy it.
