A former laser eye surgery in Ballsbridge has been transformed into an eye-catching modern three-bed home.

Formerly the Wellington Eye Clinic run by Optical Express, 2A Wellington Road offers 215sq m of living space.


Occupying a corner position at the junction with Pembroke Lane, the revamped surgery combines contemporary design with conservation architecture.

Award-winning designers Third Mind Design created a modern living space that provides a sense of calm while also having all the requirements of 21st century life.

The accommodation, which surrounds an internal courtyard to maximise natural daylight, comprises a spacious lounge/hallway with sliding timber door to the living room. To the rear, off the inner hall, is the guest WC and utility room. Off the inner hall is the dining room with exposed concrete stairs and door to the fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room.


All the main living spaces look onto the central courtyard, with many having dual aspect onto Wellington Road, or the front courtyard.

Upstairs, which can be accessed from the original stairs at the front of the property, or the new feature staircase to the rear, are three good-sized double bedrooms, as well as a home office area overlooking the new staircase.

The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and dressing area. The two other bedrooms overlook the front courtyard.


Outside to the front, behind a two-metre-high stone wall and accessed through a rustic steel-clad sliding gate, there is secure off-street parking with an electric vehicle charger connection.

A rusted metal wall with rectangular cut-outs separates the parking area from the secluded gravelled patio area with its pedestrian gate onto Wellington Road.

The internal courtyard, which is also a secluded suntrap, is ideal for outdoor dining, having hatch access from the kitchen to the dining counter. This area has a number of night lights, a paved floor, mirrored wall and outside tap.

The combination of the property’s contemporary design and its prime location on Wellington Road, make it the choice for those seeking a unique home in the heart of Dublin.

2A Wellington Road is on the market for €2.75 million through Sherry Fitzgerald. For more information and photos, visit
