Woodfield House was built approximately 150 years ago, still retaining the pride and grandeur of a bygone era, the house hosts generous proportions and an authentic air while having been extensively upgraded within the last 6 years. Enormous care and attention has gone into the renovation of the property, the current owner ensuring that Woodfield’s history and original features have been maintained alongside creating a wonderful and beautifully functioning, modern family home. Ascending granite steps onto the original Victorian tiles that lead to the main entrance, occupied by regal split wooden doors beneath a carved timber surround, a large hall with eleven foot ceilings, original polished timber floors, cornicing, dado rails and deep skirting boards await you. Instantly a feeling of ease will welcome you, embossed gold and taupe wallpaper reaches to the highest points, as one can see up to the upper levels. A wonderful original dog leg staircase enhanced with soft gold carpet invites you to the sleeping quarters. The original features met in the hall continue throughout this floor, polished floorboards, thick panelled doors, and ornate plasterwork have been meticulously saved, To the left of the entrance sits the large dual aspect drawing room, spectacular double glazed sash windows frame fabulous views of the Dublin Mountains and the Mine Chimney in Kilternan, the room features a white marble fireplace with hand-painted tiles. On to the sitting room and the library, also adorned with marble fireplaces, the sitting room with never tiring mountain vistas and the library with views over the front garden, a beautiful original basket weave parquet floor and the incredible feature of the original clergy safe built into the wall, dated from 1868.
