A hundred years ago, a house with a view of the Gasometer on South Lotts Road in Ringsend, Dublin 4 wouldn’t exactly mean stylish city living. You would probably have rented a small apartment building and lived on the meager earnings of your job at the local rope factory. These days, however, you’d be more likely to work for nearby Google, Meta or Accenture, and your living space would be more like The Ropery, a boutique development of nine high-end townhouses – three to four beds and six three-bed – built by G2 Construction and designed by architects Pierce and Associates.

When The Ropery launched in 2018, would-be buyers, mostly young professionals, were drawn to these sleek, stylish, energy-efficient homes arranged in a row right in the heart of one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods. With the Covid pandemic receding, the owner of Number 6 no longer has to live in the country, and so is back on the market at the original asking price of €750,000. The 96 square meter (1,033 square foot) home is in brand new condition and the 10-year HomeBond warranty is still in effect.

The floors of these townhouses have been reversed so that when you walk through the front door of number 6 you can almost walk straight into one of the three double bedrooms – very handy after a hard day of coding or data processing. There is a private, family bathroom on this floor – both Sonas, with contemporary gray porcelain tiling – and a hot press. Two of the bedrooms open out onto private enclosed patios, perfect for al fresco dining on a nice evening while listening to a megastar gig at the nearby Aviva Stadium.

The main living/dining/kitchen space is on the first floor to take full advantage of the light and views to the south of the city. Floor-to-ceiling NorDan Vindeur windows and doors ensure that the light really shines through. The Athena kitchen has built-in appliances, Silestone quartz countertops with quartz jambs and handleless cabinet doors for added elegance. The living room and the kitchen/dining room open onto a completely private, south-west facing Astroturfed terrace overlooking the patio. Luckily the Victorian gasometer is to the east, so it won’t block the afternoon sunlight.

With a winter of high energy bills for everyone, a sustainable home is all the more desirable, and the homes at The Ropery all feature photovoltaic solar panels and energy-efficient gas heating. The Ber is a very efficient A3.

Each house has a designated parking space, but with everything within walking distance, including the shops, cafes and restaurants of Grand Canal Dock, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Sandymount, Ballsbridge, IFSC and the city center , it will be more like a car storage place.

Number 6 The Ropery is on sale via Owen Reilly, for €750,000.
