DescriptionKeane Thompson is delighted to bring this impressive distinctive villa style home to the market. Tucked away at the end of a private laneway this elegant and exclusive property offers a truly unique home set on 0.16 acre / 0.06 ha and is positioned in a highly sought-after coastal location in the heart of Monkstown Village.
Glenville Lodge enjoys a separate private entrance through electronic gates. One is instantly struck by a sense of privacy and calm with an abundance of mature trees and shrubbery surrounding this super property. On entering, there is a welcoming, very spacious and bright hallway with double bedroom and ensuite to the right. Straight ahead brings you to a striking open plan living space which incorporates the kitchen, living room and dining room. This room is truly stunning and features bi-folding doors across the full length of the kitchen to the living area with access to the garden thus providing a sense of bringing the outdoors indoors. There is also floor to ceiling windows either side of the fireplace further creating this illusion.
The kitchen is completely fitted with high end Miele integrated units and features a stunning centre island piece and a huge and striking skylight above, flooding the space with natural sunlight. The living room features a marble fireplace with gas fire. There is another large skylight positioned over the dining space again filling the room with natural light. There is a further double bedroom, again fitted with high end wardrobes and an ensuite. The master bedroom is spectacular with full length windows on either side giving beautiful views of the wraparound garden. French doors lead to an east facing patio which catches the morning sunlight and is ideal for relaxing before a busy day. There is a clever hidden walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with a beautiful standalone rolltop bath and a separate shower with rain head. A guest WC, home office and utility room complete the accommodation. The floors are fitted with marble flooring throughout and the fixtures and fittings are of very high quality with the owners’ flair and inspiration of a Florida style villa evident throughout.
The wraparound Japanese garden is an outstanding feature of this property. Beautifully landscaped with a south and west facing aspect the garden offers complete privacy and an oasis of calm, ideal for entertaining al Fresco on a long summers evening. There is a cute bridge crossing over a stream running through the south aspect of the garden. To the front provides parking for several cars and is laid with gravel and features a block-built storage shed.
