A delightful period Hunting Lodge set in c. 1.3 acres of enchanting gardens, nestled beside the River Derry. Built by Lord Fitzwilliam towards the end of the 19th century as a hunting lodge for the Coollattin Estate, Greenhall Lodge was the lady’s lodge at the time. The property has been painstakingly refurbished and extended in recent years and is now presented in superb condition throughout. Extending to a deceptively large c. 2000 ft²/186 m², this stunning property has been sympathetically modernised whilst retaining all it’s period character and considerable charm. Greenhall Lodge stands at the northern extremity of the Coollattin Estate, between the villages of Tinahely and Shillelagh. Lying across the River are the ancient oaks within Tomnafinogue Woods, the last surviving of the great Oak Woods of Coollattin and this forms a picturesque backdrop to the property with it’s various woodland walking trails. Emerging from beneath the 18th century, three arch Greenhall Bridge, the Derry River forms one boundary of the delightful landscaped gardens which comprise areas of mature trees and shrubs, extensive colourful ground cover interlaced with paths, patio area off the Sun room, areas of lawn and a beautiful Gazebo ideal for alfresco entertaining. The gardens truly are an oasis of calm and beauty! Co Wicklow boasts many areas of great scenic beauty with the former Coollattin Estate ranking highly among them. Steeped in history, it is believed that Elizabeth – Empress of Austria stayed at Greenhall Lodge whilst on a hunting trip to the Coolattin Estate c. 1880. This is an area of great natural amenity with a host of leisure pursuits catered for including horse riding, hunting, shooting, golf and hill walking, while it is half an hour’s drive to the coast and a choice of sandy beaches. The famed Wicklow Way walking trail can be accessed nearby. The sale of Greenhall Lodge offers a rare opportunity to acquire a unique property in a unique setting, that is as captivating and elegant on the inside as it is beautiful on the outside!
