This is the most expensive house you can currently buy in Dublin

We're not sure about the decor (or the price).

Because who doesn’t love a little property porn of a Friday?

If you had €9 million to spare and wanted to drop it on a new gaff, where would you think of buying?

London? New York? L.A.? How about Killiney?

That’s where Dublin’s dearest house is currently for sale and, conveniently enough, the asking price is exactly €9 million.

Montebello sits on Killiney Hill in one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the entire country and is straight out of a Ross O’Carroll Kelly book.

The interiors are a little old-fashioned but in an obviously wealthy way, so we’re sure you won’t mind.

The house boasts seven bedrooms, two apartments, a wine cellar and a roof terrace with views of the bay and the mountains in the distance.

It sits on 3.9 acres, including “large parkland style gardens to the front and beautiful formal gardens to the side and rear.”

Outside, there’s a detached gate lodge, stables, a Victorian outhouse, a working vegetable garden, a swimming pool and pool house – ideal for a bit of The O.C.-style frolicking.

If you were to move in, you’d be rubbing shoulders with some famous faces – Bono and Enya both have homes in the area.

You’d also be just a stone’s throw away from your pals Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who are currently living in Dalkey.

It’s a lot of cash to part with though – here’s what the money would buy elsewhere.

That €9 million (around £7.9 million) would get you this six-bedroom townhouse in Kensington, London that comes with a home cinema.

Meanwhile, it looks like L.A. is the place to go if you want real value for your €9 million – this Bel Air mansion in currently on the market for just under $10 million.
