Property Description:

Eagle lodge is a unique and charming Georgian home, with the feel of a country house on ½ acre approx. of exceptional private gardens.
A perfect home for entertaining, a real party house with a terrific flow to the main reception rooms, yet cosy for everyday family living. Eagle Lodge has rooms of elegant proportions rich in period detail but with a relaxed informal style. Dating from c.1820 it was built originally as a Dower house for Frascati House. More recently Eagle Lodge was merged with Victoria Lodge to form Eagle Lodge as it is today.

The property is set on exquisite south-west facing walled gardens containing some magnificent trees and plants together with box- hedging, large sweeping lawns, a waterfall, lily ponds which are currently home to several ducks and the occasional drake and heron. Several patios a Gazebo provide restful spots for al fresco dining.
An Italian garden and outdoor kitchen/ barbeque area has hosted many a family party watched over by a scented Wisteria .
And yet, remarkably, this charm and seclusion is minutes walk from the bustle of Blackrock, close by are a choice of excellent primary and secondary schools which include St Andrews and Blackrock colleges.
This handsome residence which dates from 1820 is a wonderful blend of original accommodation with superb ceiling heights and the elegant proportions characteristic of the Georgian era, refurbished and modernised throughout, together with the addition of a stylish kitchen / dining/ family area which is the heart of the house, enjoying wonderful natural light and overlooking the stunning gardens.

Standing on grounds of almost half an acre, approached through electric gates, the gardens are an oasis of privacy and peace. Wide borders a manicured rolling lawn, lovingly planted borders stocked with an array of colour affording year-round interest. The combination of formal planting with flower borders and mature trees is simply breath-taking. Generous gravelled car parking area for several cars.
Eagle Lodge offers a perfect blend of a supremely convenient location together with a totally secluded and private position. It is an exquisitely stylish residence in a supremely convenient location. The location, flexibility and rich heritage make this a unique property. It is undoubtedly one of the finest period houses in Dublin.
