I recall seeing a photo of a large georgian portico which was all that was left of some large mansion in that general area. It was standing alone in a small grassed area in the middle of a large estate of semi-detached houses. It could be the house you are looking for.
It was a great photo, showing the total contrast in scale between one of the Great Houses and the housing then being built for the suburban masses.
The photo was part of an exhibition on old Dublin that i seen about 14 years ago in either Scoil Muire oin Parnell Square or the loreto on the Green. i can’t remember which, being only a wee lad at the time.
