'An exceptional house......a light-filled home, it provides a high level of accommodation within a striking yet subtle urban context.’ - Citation, RIAI, Irish Architecture Awards 2006

Inspiring, unique, architecturally innovative, contemporary, light-filled, bold of personality etc. are just some of the adjectives that can be used to describe 10 Richmond Place.

Built in 2006 by Boyd Cody Architects and recently listed in The Phaidon Atlas of 21st World Architecture, it was cleverly constructed to fit the contours of its unique corner site. No.10 is a landmark building, an multiple award-winning property, one that stands proud on Mountpleasant Avenue Upper. The solid yellow brick exterior, cut brick walls with clean edges, large windows and interlocking 2-storey body combine to create something that is at once architecturally beautiful and intriguing.

Above and beyond its architectural merit, No.10 is also a very practical, deceptively spacious, warm and inviting home. 105sq.m. / 1,130sq.ft. (approx.) of well-appointed accommodation awaits you, where a collaborative use of natural and man-made materials are featured to include solid oak, polished concrete, glass and rubber.

Once inside the hall door you are greeted by a crossroads of sorts – step down to the sunken living/dining room with solid fuel stove, polished concrete floor and part polished concrete walls with a wall of glass windows drawing your eye to the outside offering discreet glimpses of street-life. The elevated galley kitchen, which overlooks the living/dining room is clad in oak with stainless steel and oak counter tops, with a utility and pantry area cleverly secreted around the corner, where you have access to the side garden. Also at this level is a shower room, fitted in oak and rubber. Take the solid oak staircase to the first floor where the gallery landing is luxuriously dressed in oak panelling with an oak and glass slotted ceiling and roof. Two double bedrooms are located off here with concealed wardrobes, oak flooring, large floor to ceiling windows (one opaque) with a feature wall, bold in colour as a wonderful backdrop. The main bedroom features a concertina wall, which folds back opening into the landing. The main bathroom is dressed in oak, glass and rubber and allows for star-gazing with a glass roof overhead the bathtub. Outside a perimeter pebble lawn runs parallel to Mountpleasant Avenue with gated access to the street. The front garden is low maintenance and enjoys a sunny westerly aspect.

Superbly located on a quiet residential cul-de-sac, this address is equidistant to both Ranelagh village and Rathmines – both alive with specialist shops, coffee houses, restaurants, boutiques etc. All social and essential amenities are only 5-6 minutes from your doorstep. A 20-minute walk will take you into Stephen’s Green and the city centre whilst Ranelagh LUAS is a mere 5 minute stroll away.

Neatly fitted into its corner site, there are two cleverly positioned outside areas. The side garden runs parallel to Mountpleasant Avenue Upper and is bordered by a tall granite wall and features a pebble lawn, and bin store. There is a pedestrian gate here, allowing for easy access in and out for bins. The front garden is bordered by a brick wall, in keeping with the exterior of the building. A pedestrian gate with pathway takes you to the courtyard, which has been designed with low maintenance in mind, featuring a pebble lawn and raised flower bed border. This ‘outside room’ enjoys a sunny westerly aspect.
