DescriptionFrank V Murphy and Savills are delighted to present Highfield Lodge, a superb five bedroom detached house situated on a large and private site in a most stunning and peaceful setting. Highfield lodge has a recessed entrance with an impressive tree lined driveway that draws you to a spacious parking area.
Stepping inside reveals a bright and impressive reception style entrance hallway with a double height ceiling. Beginning on your left-hand side, you will find a family room and on the right, a guest lavatory and TV room. The spacious comfortable lounge has a wonderful open fire, the focal point of this relaxing room with double doors connecting it to the sunroom. This is a well-proportioned room overlooking the gardens and patio with external sliding door access and additional double doors to the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen and dining room is large and bright with a beautifully designed canted bay window protruding to the rear providing additional natural light and patio access through a sliding door. Conveniently, the utility and gardener’s lavatory can be accessed from the kitchen. From here, you will find internal access to the double garage which is impressive in size and has two automatic garage doors.
Making your way upstairs, you will find five large double bedrooms, three of which are en suite. The master bedroom is deserving of special mention, along with a built-in wardrobe, walk-in dressing room and an en suite, it has a stunning feature bay window overlooking the countryside beyond in a most spectacular fashion and provides the perfect backdrop to retire for the evening. The remainder of the first floor is made up of the main bathroom and a large hot press airing room.
Externally this property continues to amaze. The tree-lined driveway and parking area is large and more than equipped to accommodate a selection of vehicles. Well back from the road, the front of the property overlooks a large level lawn with opportunity for development an obvious consideration for prospective buyers, subject to planning permission. To the rear, the property is ideally positioned with a southerly orientation casting all day sunshine over its many features. The flagstone patio runs the width of the property with a line of mature planting separating the patio from a large level lawn space, ideal for ball games and summer gatherings. The stable block and barn is located towards the rear boundary. It is spacious, plumbed and powered up with two box stables, a tack room, a feed room and plenty of space for storage or indeed extra stables. The paddocks has a post and rail fence enclosing an all-weather sand arena with flood lighting.
This ideal family home is a 7 minutes’ drive from Douglas and less than 20 minutes from Cork City while Cork International Airport is a 15 minute drive. All social and essential amenities are close by including schools, shops, playing fields and sports clubs.
