A most elegant Georgian period home of immense charm and character, located on Mount Pleasant Square, which is justifiably regarded as one of the most beautiful Georgian squares in Dublin.
This stylish home is characterised by ornate period detail synonymous with the era infused with a fusion of contemporary design creating a truly superb family home. The main reception rooms at hall level enjoys a dual aspect with views over the square and to the beautifully landscaped rear garden, which is a real feature in itself. As the property has both easterly and westerly aspects, sun shines on the garden from noon each day, and also floods the interiors with light. A short flight of granite steps lead to the main entrance hall which connects to the most elegant reception rooms, rich in period detail. The large kitchen / living / dining room located at garden level leads to sunny south west facing private landscaped walled rear garden, literally an extra room outside. Upstairs the property has three bedrooms – two fine doubles and a single. The master has great views to the dome of Rathmines Church. The bedroom accommodation is further enhanced by an attic room currently in use as the 4th bedroom with shower room off.
Steeped in history, the square’s development commenced in the early part of the 19th century and was completed by 1830. Its tree lined central green, once for the exclusive use of the square’s resident, now hosts Mountpleasant Lawn Tennis Club. The house benefits from a great sense of seclusion and privacy being tucked away off Ranelagh Road and gains further from the shelter and screening of the mature trees that border the square. The location is superbly convenient right in the heart of Ranelagh with all the wonderful amenities to hand both educational and recreational. The Luas is within a five minutes’ walk and it is a gentle stroll to St Stephen’s Green and the wonderful walkways of the Grand Canal.
