DescriptionEvoking all the classic proportions of a Neo Georgian villa, yet bristling with modern amenity, Glenside House and its manicured lawned gardens of approximately 1.2 acres provide the magical appeal of an elegant family home in a sublime setting between the mountains and the sea, adjacent to world class championship Druids Glen Gold Club. From its beautifully proportioned quadri-form front sitting room, dining room, living room and custom kitchen all grouped around an impressive 33m/111ft central hallway, to its sumptuous guest bathroom and five fully en-suite bedrooms, Glenside House invites one to savour the level of design and attention to detail invested in its creation. Its principal rooms offering direct access to the gardens' hard and soft landscaped terrace which in turn offer fine solar gain for al-fresco entertaining.
This is a great location in which to live, apart from being close to the safe east coast beaches and preserved coastal marshes offering wonderful wildlife habitat. Glenside House is almost equidistant from two of the finest gardens in Europe, Powerscourt and Mount Usher, and within easy driving distance of some of Wicklow's most scenic attractions such as Roundwood lakes, Powerscourt Waterfall and The Wicklow Gap.
There is excellent interconnectivity, with ready access across to the N-11/M-11/M-50 corridor (Dublin airport in less than an hour), and Greystones DART, citybound buses and Aircoach Direct within ten minutes' drive.
Educational facilities at primary and secondary level offer choice, while leisure and sporting pursuits are well catered for- several championship golf courses, pony trekking, shore angling and lake fishing activities, sailing, Gaelic and rugby clubs all within easy reach.
For local retail therapy, look no further than the Courtyard at Mount Usher, Fishers of Newtownmountkennedy or Avoca Handweavers at Kilmac', not forgetting Dundrum Town Centre is less than 20 minutes up the N11/M50
