DescriptionLenham Lodge is a beautifully restored and upgraded Victorian residence on approx. 9 acres located close to Carlow Town, on the bank of the River Barrow and adjacent to the wonderful Weir at Milford. Steeped in history, the property dates to 1815, originally constructed as a fishing lodge for the Butlers of Ormond.
The current owners have gone to great lengths to ensure the property is presented in excellent condition, having undertaken an extensive refurbishment project in 2005 with wooden floors, ceilings, wiring, plumbing, windows, fixtures and fittings addressed.
The main house extends to 328 sq m and presents a 5-bedroom configuration over two floors, comprises 5 bedrooms, (2 En-suite), 3 reception rooms, a large kitchen and scullery, guest W.C. storage area, and large main bathroom,
Its beautiful features include decorative cornices, wood-panelled door surrounds, window shutters, double skirting boards and spacious bright rooms with high ceilings. Replacement, double-glazed sash windows afford extensive views over the surrounding countryside and the Killeshin Hills.
In addition, the property supports four holiday cottages and a one-bed first floor apartment, generating a very significant rental income.
The property is accessed through a period granite entrance with electric gates, while the sweeping, tree-lined avenue to the main residence is flanked by private paddocks. Surrounding gardens are mature and well maintained, supporting extensive lawn areas, Indian sandstone patios, vegetable gardens and a fenced tennis court. A stable block comprising 6 loose boxes and surrounding concrete yard with immediate access to 6 acres in paddocks completes the holding.
