Built in the 1830's, this early Victorian home, located at the easily accessible canal-end of Lower Mountpleasant Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin 6, has been extensively upgraded over the years. It retains its original Period features and benefits from an ultra-modern, south west facing, extension to the rear. It is within walking distance of the main business centres of Dublin 2, 4 and 6 and is within a short stroll of 2 Luas stops, making a second car (or even a first car) possibly unnecessary. What price can be placed on not having an hour-long commute to and from work every day? Walk or cycle everywhere! While the location is central to many excellent shops, schools and restaurants, it is nonetheless tranquil and calm within. The layout is very clever, offering no less than 4 reception rooms, a modern kitchen, utility and guest lavatory at ground floor level and 3 bedrooms (which could easily become 4) and a very spacious Victorian styled bathroom on the upper levels. There are 2 excellent and highly insulated storage attics and 3 low maintenance outside areas. This would be an easily manageable house to downsize to or, in the alternative, to upsize to – given its potential to create further bedrooms and another bathroom. The photographs tell the story. This house also enjoys a view of the church dome of the Church of Mary Immaculate Refuge of Sinners in Rathmines, from its back garden.
