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 the high walls lies a surprisingly spacious home laid out over 3 levels and extending to 209 sq m / 2,249 sq ft. The house was originally built in the 1970s by the then owners of No. 6 Wellington Road. The fact that they were building it for themselves ensured they carved off generous garden space. As a consequence, No. 6 Raglan Lane has a private courtyard garden 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 3rd floor accommodation and roof terrace. The works enhance the property greatly, with contemporary finishes such as floor-to-ceiling glazed walls and sliding doors at ground and 2nd 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, 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 1st floor there are 4 double bedrooms, 1 of which has an en-suite shower room, and the main bathroom. The master bedroom suite is located on the second floor and has its own en-suite shower room. The shower room is uniquely designed with a sky light 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 from 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 the morning sun. The rear garden, designed with the guidance of garden designer Morgan Sheridan, is large and beautifully landscaped with decked 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 2 store sheds.
This superb residence makes an ideal home for anyone looking for an oasis in the heart of Dublin 4.
