Big thanks to Greg Stevenson on Facebook and Under The Thatch on Twitter for flagging up this stunning 1930s six-bedroom art deco property in Templeogue Road, Dublin. But it does come with a good amount of notoriety.

The house was built in 1939, but gained that notoriety in 1940 when the house was owned by a 'go-between' between the IRA and the German Nazi regime.

You can read the full story from the Irish Times here.
