Welcome to 20 Mountpleasant Avenue Lower, where a quaint and pretty two-storey property belies a unique, olde world interior and magnificent garden. No. 20 offers impressive proportions, complemented by a large, sunny, easterly rear garden.
Wonderful and charming period detail is evident throughout this home and the result is pretty as a picture. In brief, the garden path leads past well-stocked planting beds enjoying a myriad of plants including Osmanthus delavayi, clematis, sea kale, a fig tree, roses and jasmine. The attractive traditional entrance door and hall open to two well-proportioned reception rooms. To the rear of the hall is the kitchen and a door leading to the magical rear garden.
Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate wc. The current owners have carried out remedial works over the last number of years including wiring, plumbing and insulation as well as replacing the gas boiler, to make for very comfortable living.
Those discerning, green-fingered buyers will delight in the gardens to the front, set behind wrought iron railings and a mixed hedge, there is a very private, well-stocked garden where the scents of many fragrant plants can be enjoyed along with the evening sun.
To the rear, planting in the large, walled garden was overseen by garden designer Oliver Schurmann of Mount Venus Nursery. Here, an extensive repertoire of plants can be found throughout the year, including climbing roses and clematis, hydrangeas, lilac, witch hazel, honeysuckle and lavender, as well as a productive apple tree and fruiting gooseberry, redcurrant and wild strawberries. Ferns and grasses compliment the planting. The pathway, with stepping-stones over a formal pond filtered by native plants, leads back to the traditional door.
Superbly located, the house is within a stone s throw of the villages of Rathmines and Ranelagh with all their essential services including shops, bars, restaurants and cinemas.
