Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 372 m²
A visually charming home of distinction and flair , where complimentary two-storey wings linked by a three-storey stone tower with gothic-style door and windows are further enhanced by a really stunning wrap-around conservatory designed to follow the day-long sun; Killiskey Lodge stands on c.4.5 acres and enjoys a backdrop of bracken-clad hills sheltering the lush gardens where a stream meanders to fill two ponds. Originating as a 19th Century lodge on the Dunran Castle Estate, the property marries period character with modern amenity; the 'new' wing providing a fine eat-in country style kitchen and drawing room on the ground floor, also a dual-height master bedroom on the first floor. An intimate dining room, hall with wine cellar, and essential "boot-room", are housed within the original ground floor. Accommodation extends to over 371.6 sq.m./ 4,000 sq.ft. and includes five bedrooms, one of which provides a second-floor eyrie at the top of the tower. All in all, a captivating property in an enviable location north-west of Ashford and convenient to the N11 for commuters. Ashford is a charming village through which the Vartry River flows on the way from Roundwood to Wicklow's Broadlough, and where the Mount Usher Gardens and visitor centre are a sought-after amenity. With a strong sense of community, the village has a choice of neighbourhood shops, two schools, friendly hostelries, and good leisure facilities including the Druids Glen Equestrian Centre in the grounds of nearby Glanmore Castle. The Roundwood Lakes, Glendalough and Laragh are all within easy driving distance; with world-class golf available at Druids Glen. Such a country setting is hard to imagine so convenient to DART services at Bray and Greystones; commuting to Dublin is facilitated by ready access to the N11 nearby. Killiskey Lodge is full of appeal - the vendors took time and trouble sourcing architectural salvage to lend even the new build a period feel; the kitchen beams come from a Louisiana cotton mill, the aged timber floor from New York, the old doors from an architectural salvage company (Dublin); while the custom kitchen was sourced at County Kitchens (Ballymore Eustace). A Wexford craftsman joiner, (Danny Murphy), made the gothic windows and Bunclody's John Sheil made the feature stairs in the dramatic two-storey entrance hall leading upwards to the tower bedroom. As for the gardens, we suggest a viewing appointment and let them speak for themselves!
