Description Built c. 1751, this house was originally a glebe house for the Church of Ireland and is currently listed on the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown record of protected structures. Cherrywood House is a rare find in Dublin today. It is situated in a secluded location set amongst beautiful gardens with an overall site area of approximately 0.6 ha. (1.5 acres). Well set back from the Cherrywood Road, accessed via secure electric gates, a gravel driveway leads up through the mature trees and gardens to the elegant Georgian front.
The house itself comprises of a part two-storey, part one-storey period residence. The gardens and grounds are an outstanding feature of the property; the lawn at the side of the house which runs alongside the rose garden, originally featured a full-size grass tennis court and has potential for restoration. Four white pillars frame the entrance to Cherrywood House and the spacious, colourful reception hall with its beautiful marble fireplace. On either side of the hall is the living room on the left and the drawing room to the right (which gracefully leads into the stunning dining room), each with its own individual personality and standout features. From the entrance hall, French doors lead one through to the rear of the house where the kitchen (with walk-in pantry and hotpress, and large utility room) and the study are situated.
The spacious kitchen maintains a warm and cosy heart to the house with its 4-oven AGA cooker. Accessed through the kitchen or the living room, the dining room is one of the largest rooms in the house. Like the drawing room, it is flooded with natural light by three large windows looking out into the fabulous gardens. The study, with its three walls of mahogany bookcases and view onto the front gardens, provides the most secluded and tranquil space in the house. An elegant staircase leads us up to a spacious, naturally bright hallway from which the five bedrooms and two bathrooms are accessed.
While all the bedrooms are spacious and provide wonderful views of the surrounding gardens, the master bedroom is particularly grand and boasts two original walk-in wardrobes. Each room has its own style and particular character which makes walking around the house a very enjoyable experience. There is also a separate two-storey mews building, currently being used as a games room at first floor level complete with a snooker table. This mews could possibly serve as separate residential accommodation in the future.
