On the market for €875,000, this terrace house in Ranelagh is surprisingly rustic inside

This terraced home on Old Mount Pleasant, Ranelagh, may seem like an urban idyll but exposed beams, stained glass and rough stone walls give it an earthy, rustic feel.

You may think you know what you expect from this red brick front and stepped-up front door. A large and spacious drawing room to the left, and probably a glass kitchen extension in the back. But you’d be wrong.

4 Old Mount Pleasant is for sale for €875,000 and there is a beautiful drawing room to the right, with a stunning fireplace and original floorboards. However, it’s an unusual shape, sliced off in one corner, presumably to fit in amongst the city terrace block.

Downstairs, you are greeted by exposed timber beams and rough stone walls in a more relaxed family room. A solid-fuel stove under a timber mantle sits to one corner and you might be forgiven for thinking you’re somewhere much more rural than Dublin 4.

To the rear is a gorgeous country-style, handmade kitchen with a gas range cooker. Double doors lead to a private courtyard with steps up to the back garden.

Up to the first floor are three bedrooms, a master facing onto the street and two other surprisingly spacious bedrooms to the rear. There’s also a beautiful rolltop bath in the main family bathroom on this floor, overlooking the garden.

The house has been entirely rewired and replumbed by the current owners, who also added some unique period details, such as stained glass windows from Saint Columba’s Church, now Ranelagh Multi Denominational School.
