DescriptionCambridge House is a large period 2 storey over basement period building that has fallen in to a state of disrepair. Extending to c. 399 sq m / 4,300 sq ft this once famous eighteenth century residence was home to the 2nd Duke of Cambridge commander of the armed forces in Dublin from 1846 to 1851. The house, which is listed, contains many fine features of this bygone era including most elegant rooms with high ceilings and tall sash windows. It is the view that a restoration project, carefully supervised , could restore this distinguished property to its former glory. Cambridge House may well be of interest to conservationists who appreciate and understand buildings such as this example which are literally steeped in history.
The property is conveniently located off Infirmary Road which is within walking distance to Heuston Station, local shops, Arbour Hill, Cathal Brugha Barracks Museum, Guinness Brewery, Phoenix Park and the LUAS.
