Sherry FitzGerald are proud to present No 6 Old Mount Pleasant to the market, an impressive 2 storey over basement stuccoed period home of immense charm and character, nestled in the heart of Ranelagh. Arguably Ranelagh's most historical residence dating back to the 1770s, it was the home of the renowned 18th century Irish architect Thomas Ivory, who designed the Blue Coat School now the headquarters of the Law Society and the Newcomen Bank building at the entrance to Dublin Castle. The oval reception room is echoed in the Oval Office of the White House designed by Ivory's pupil James Hoban.
From 1999 to 2008 the house was fully restored to conservation standard. This unique and historical property offers elegantly proportioned accommodation throughout which is further enhanced by many original period features including sash windows with working shutters, original Georgian doors and fireplaces to name but a few. There is a perfect balance of wonderful light filled bedroom and living accommodation.
The glorious rear gardens are undoubtedly a special feature of this property and rarely does an opportunity come along to acquire a property offering a haven of tranquillity, seclusion and rustic charm while also offering excellent potential to extend the already generous accommodation to create a truly remarkable family home.
The rear of the property extends some 150 feet from the house to its 46 feet frontage to Oxford Lane. The gardens of 0.10 acres approx. are laid out mainly in lawn and bordered by old brick walls, mature apple trees and shrubs. An exceptional ancillary mews building fronted in old brick and stone with a natural slate roof features to the rear of the garden and fronts onto Oxford Lane.
