Torca Lodge is an exceptionally fine detached Victorian family home located on this quiet elevated residential road with stunning sea views out to Bray Head and the Sugar Loaf, it stands on approximately 0.2 acre and benefits from a mature sunny wraparound garden. The house was extended to the side and rear approximately 25 years ago, and there is a wonderful balance of period features and modern comforts throughout. It still retains many original features including sliding sash windows, high ceilings, original plasterwork, and chimney pieces. Vehicular gates open into a large, graveled driveway providing off street parking for several cars, bordered by granite outcrops and a beautifully landscaped front garden with gated pedestrian access to one side of the property. Granite steps lead up to the front door flanked by two female Sphinx statues. The light filled well-proportioned accommodation extends to approximately 275sq.m (2,960sq. ft) over two levels, at hall level there is a porch entrance opening into the reception hall. Off the hall there are two very fine reception rooms, both are dual aspect with period features. To the rear there is a cosy family room with an open fireplace which opens through to the kitchen/dining room, this space is the heart of the home and has a great connection to the garden. There is a snug seating area with an open fire to one end and the kitchen is fitted with a range of Shaker style units with French doors opening out to the rear garden. There is access from the kitchen and the front reception room into a sunroom that opens out to the side garden. A guest bedroom, shower room and utility complete the accommodation at this level. At first floor level there are five bedrooms, two to the front of the house which are light filled, with access from the master bedroom onto a south facing terrace with breathtaking panoramic views out to Bray and the Sugar Loaf. There are three further bedrooms to the rear, one with an en suite shower room. There is access from the rear hall onto a second sun terrace overlooking the garden which enjoys good afternoon sun. The rear garden measures approximately 22m in length and is beautifully landscaped with a large patio with a water feature, this is the ideal spot for al fresco dining and barbeques in summertime. Steps lead up to a lawned garden which benefits from immense privacy and seclusion bordered by lovely old granite walls. The position of this quality home will be of major interest to those trying to get a foothold in the highly regarded and much sought after Dalkey location. This coastal town offers a wide range of local and specialist shops, cafes, delicatessens, excellent pubs, and some of the finest restaurants in South County Dublin. The surrounding area is well served by an excellent selection of primary and secondary schools including Loreto Abbey Dalkey, Harold Boys, Castle Park, Holy Child, Rathdown and the Harold National School. Dalkey DART Station is close by, and this services the city centre as well as many boys' schools with regular ease. Dalkey also caters for many recreational and leisure facilities with Cuala GAA and Dalkey United situated close by as well as golf, tennis, and hockey clubs. There are also many fitness centres and the tranquil scenic walks over Killiney and Dalkey hills and along the seafront are particularly popular - the entrance to Dalkey Hill is only 250m from the house. Dun Laoghaire Harbour has its two piers and the four yacht clubs along with the extensive marina will be of major interest to the marine and sailing enthusiasts.
