South Lodge contains all the quintessential characteristics of an Irish Country Estate yet has the benefit of very manageable proportions and exceptional convenience. The 1990â€™s built residence extends to approx. 464 sq. m. (5,000 sq. ft.) and situated on approx. 11.3 ha (28 acres) together with guest cottage, stable yard, parkland, orchards, ample lawns, mature timber plantation and a small lake. The property is located 45 km from Dublin City Centre.
South Lodge was specifically designed to take advantage of the south facing orientation. The majority of the accommodation of South Lodge is on the ground floor with the main reception rooms benefiting from the positioning.
On entrance the spacious reception hall sets the tone for the entire dwelling with parquet flooring and feature staircase. The accommodation includes; the substantial drawing room with marble fireplace, the special feature of this room is the large bow window which overlooks the expansive lawns down to the lake. There is a family sitting room, made cosy with a wood burning stove and large family kitchen which is the heart of the house. The dining area has views of the garden and French doors to the terrace which offers opportunity for alfresco entertaining in the summer months. There is an island counter, ample work surface and storage including a pantry off and the well-loved addition of a five door Aga.
