No. 6 Raglan Lane is a superb mews house, discreetly situated behind original stone walls and located on a charming section of Raglan lane, regarded as one of the most desirable mews lanes in Dublin 4.
Behind high walls lies a surprisingly spacious home laid out over three levels and extending to 209 sqm / 2,249 sqft approx. The house was originally built in the 1970 s by the then owners of No. 6 Wellington Road. The fact that they were building it for themselves ensured they carved off a generous garden space. Therefore, No. 6 Raglan Lane has a private courtyard to the front and a mature west facing garden to the rear.
The current owners renovated and extended the property under the guidance of Boyd Cody architects in 2003. This included extending the kitchen and entrance hall space and adding the third- floor accommodation and roof terrace. The works enhance the property greatly, with contemporary finishes such as the floor-to-ceiling glazed walls and sliding doors at ground and second floor level, a glass-sided staircase and recessed pocket doors which slide away allowing a wonderful flow through the reception rooms. Today, this home boasts bright spacious and well thought out accommodation coupled with a choice of wonderful private outdoor spaces all offering great privacy.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with storage, dining room, kitchen with light-filled breakfast area and the spacious living room runs the width of the house. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room, and the main bathroom. The main bedroom suite is located on the second floor and has its own ensuite shower room. The shower room is uniquely designed with a skylight over the shower. On this level there is also a sitting room and large storage space. Sliding doors lead to the sheltered roof terrace, which benefits from the sun morning to evening.
The property is as much about its indoor living space as it is about its outdoor areas and No. 6 has a choice of outdoor areas to relax in. The front courtyard has ample parking and a raised deck area with water feature to enjoy in the morning sun. The rear garden is large and well landscaped with deck areas, lawn, shrubbery, flower beds, mature trees (including fruit trees crab apple and plum). The roof terrace is also ample in size and a wonderful area to relax and enjoy some quiet time. A lovely feature of the courtyard is the retention of the original wrought iron hay rack and the remnants of a fireplace. The courtyard also houses two storage sheds.
This superb residence makes an ideal home for anyone looking for an oasis in the heart of Dublin 4.
Added to the uniqueness of the property is the prime location on Raglan Lane, hidden away between the renowned and highly desirable Georgian roads of Wellington and Raglan, a stone s throw from Baggot Street, Ballsbridge and within a 20 minute walk of St Stephen s Green and Grafton street.
Ballsbridge is home to many of Dublin s top hotels and restaurants including the Dylan Hotel, Roly s, The Herbert Park Hotel, the InterContinental Hotel, amongst a choice of options. There is also a wide variety of recreational facilities in the locality such as Herbert Park, the Aviva Stadium and the RDS Showgrounds. There is an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools to choose from nearby as well as UCD and Trinity College.
Merrion Square, Sandymount village, St Stephen s Green, Grand canal Dock (Dublin s IT and Legal hub) and Fitzwilliam Square are also just a pleasant ramble away. It is also ideally placed to take advantage of excellent transport links such as nearby Lansdowne Road DART station.
