DescriptionThe high timber gates and mature enchanting trees which flank the entrance of Whitshed Lodge set the tone for what lies at the end of an impressively long driveway- a fine detached house dating back to 1920, once the coach house for Glaneskin on Portland Road echoing period status, sophistication and intrigue.
Whitshed Lodge is truly at home on Whitshed road, the main arterial road within the Burnaby Estate renowned for aspirational homes, discretely tucked away behind manicured hedges and stone pillars symbolising grandeur, exclusivity and that all alluring sense of historical charm.
The half acre gardens which are positioned to the front and to the side are mainly laid out in lawn complete with apple orchard and outdoor seating and eating areas. The side garden spans a noticeably generous width facing on to Portland Road.
Greystones having won the accolade of most liveable community in 2008 is consistently attracting new residents. The Marina and Harbour are a fantastic addition to the town and offer sailing/kayaking/diving and fishing activities adding to the plethora of sporting and other leisure pursuits.
Greystones offers “The best of both worlds” where one can luxuriate in the splendour of the surrounding scenic beauty with beaches, forests, mountains, marina and harbour whilst being within a 45 minute commute to Dublin city centre and the Airport. There are regular city bound buses, DART and outer commuter trains. Drivers will be happy with the easy access to the motorway, N11 leading to the M11 and M50.
