Alongside meanwhile in the garden, and detached, is a garage/workspace study, used by the family during the school and college-going years.

Now, Rosebanks Redthorn is an executor sale, and agent Sam Kingston of Casey and Kingston says it’s in good overall condition, in a very popular location just off the Douglas Road, near national schools such as St Anthony’s and Eglantine, as well as secondary schools, sports amenities, and on two bus routes.
