Hunters Estate Agent is very excited to introduce Somerton Lodge to the market. This unique and elegant period property was built in the mid 18th Century by John Mapas and was originally situated on lands extending to 37 acres. The current owners have sensitively restored this beautiful home which extends to 340sq.m/3,659.7sq.ft to include a mews which was added in recent years to independently accommodate a family member and could be used as a source of rental income.
The property is discreetly tucked away behind electric gates which lead to a secluded mature garden with parking for many cars and beautiful rolling lawns. The house oozes charm and character with all the original period features remaining such as decorative cornice ceilings, working wooden shutters, magnificent regency style windows and stunning ornate wrought iron balcony overlooking the gardens.
Upon entering we are in a welcoming, wide entrance hallway with feature staircase. On this floor we have the majestic, dual aspect drawing room with feature bay window, a brand new, spacious and modern kitchen with access to the rear garden and a cosy family room with fireplace as well as a cloak cupboard, utility room and guest WC.
On the first floor we have the main bedroom with its own bathroom and four more bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The proportions are very generous and the accommodation light filled throughout.
The mews which is accessed independently is an excellent addition to the property and could be used as a source of rental income. It is laid out with an open plan living/kitchen and guest WC on the entrance level and two generous bedrooms sharing a bathroom on the first floor while the attic is currently used as a third bedroom and has an adjacent WC with bidet. Currently the mews also has its own private rear patio area.
Somerton is located in a private enclave just off Rochestown Avenue close to all amenities. Somerton Lodge is equidistant from Killiney, Dun Laoghaire, Deansgrange and Cabinteely villages. There is an excellent range of shopping close by with a Lidl and Supervalu at Deansgrange, Killiney Shopping Centre within walking distance and Dunnes Stores Cornelscourt close by. There are also excellent schools in the area including Rathdown, St Joseph of Cluny, CBC Monkstown, Castlepark and Loreto Dalkey to name but a few. For those with a love of the outdoors Kilbogget Park and Killiney Hill Park provide excellent spaces to stretch the legs. Somerton Lodge is served by excellent bus links and the DART stations at Sandycove and Glenageary are only a few minutes drive away.
Viewing is highly recommended.
