Hunters Estate Agent is excited to introduce 6 St James’ Terrace to the market, a truly delightful and elegant mid-nineteenth century residence on this highly sought-after terrace in Dublin 6. The stunning home has optimal south-west orientation and large gardens with a two-storey stone coach-house, heated training pool and space to the side for extensions if desired. Internally, the light-filled rooms of generous proportions retain their original features, including decorative plasterwork, fire surrounds and panelled doors. Unusually, there is no projecting return, ensuring a complete absence of shade to the rear of the house or any part of the main garden.

  • Delightful south-west garden of circa 1/3 acre.
  • Outdoor heated training pool.
  • Dual aspect rooms flooded with natural light.
  • Substantial cut-stone coach house and stables at the rear of the property.
  • A wealth of original period features.
  • Gas-fired central heating.
  • Feature high ceilings extending to 3.5m high.
  • Much sought-after location just outside Ranelagh village.

Room Details

There is a wide flight of stone steps leading to an elegant doorcase with fanlight and a large, bright, entrance hall. A glazed door leads to the inner stair-hall which is exceptionally brightly lit by a tall, arched, window. This hall serves the study, cloakroom and the two reception rooms. To the rear, the original glazed door leads to a balcony with fixed seating area and a flight of granite steps to the garden.

The main reception rooms have interconnecting folding doors giving both rooms dual aspect. The drawing room, to the rear and south, has a triple Wyatt sash window giving astonishing levels of daylight. Together, these two rooms create a dramatic living space at the heart of the house. Upstairs there are four large bedrooms, two with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, and a family bathroom. At garden level, there is a modern bright kitchen, with French doors leading to a sheltered outdoor dining area, a large playroom, home office, pantry and laundry room.

No 6 St James Terrace has been carefully maintained by its owners and the same level of care extends to the mature, prize-winning gardens. The rear garden has several distinct areas or zones, with lawns surrounded by herbaceous borders, specimen trees, an 8.5m x 2.4m heated training pool, a parterre and stable yard. The original side entrance for carriages provides a space in which an extension at one or more levels could be added, subject to planning permission. The very large two storey coach-house (c. 15m x 4.2m ) could be used for many purposes incidental to the use of the house, with great potential for development. The well-planted and gravelled front garden has comfortable parking for four cars.

The house is almost equidistant from Donnybrook and Ranelagh (c. 800m) and is therefore within easy reach of a wide range of shops and restaurants in both villages. It is also less than 3km from St Stephen’s Green which makes many of the city’s main attractions easily accessible, and is close to the RDS, Lansdowne Road, and National Concert Hall. The location is well served by other facilities including UCD, St Vincent’s Hospital, Herbert Park, Fitzwilliam Tennis Club, and many local schools including St Conleth’s, Alexandra, Muckross and Sandford Park.

Viewing is essential and highly recommended.
