A number of features really stand out with this house – Stained glass windows from Saint Columba’s Church (now Ranelagh Multi Denominational School) have been given a new lease of life and are now fitted internally at 4 Old Mountpleasant. An underside of an original floorboard bears an engraving “1784”. Exposed beams throughout the lower level of the house display both the refurbishment carried out and maintain a sense of space throughout. The front sittingroom has an Adams style fireplace whilst the lower level sittingroom boasts a solid fuel burning stove and original exposed stone walls. The kitchen is handmade and has a fitted gas range oven.

Old Mountpleasant is superbly located only a stone’s throw from Ranelagh Village and Ranelagh LUAS. This glorious listed home offers three bedrooms, two reception rooms, bathroom, kitchen and bathroom with reclaimed period bathroom fittings.
