Property Description

Rarely does such an exceptional property come to the market in this most scenic of locations. Granite Lodge is located in the heart of the Vale of Clara, less than an hour from Dublin and on the banks of the Avonmore River. This wonderful family home started life as a smaller workman cottage created from the wonderful Wicklow Granite found in this area. However, while the original cottage has been retained and all of the character remains, the substantial extension to the house ensures there is no compromise on space now, with the house extending to over 320 sq. m.

Nestled within the trees on this lovely 1 acre site, care and attention has been taken to ensure the house complements the exceptional setting. There is a wraparound veranda on both the ground floor and the upper level to ensure the very best of views and internally the house is in excellent condition. With many spacious reception rooms and 4 double bedrooms there is certainly no shortage of space and the gardens are a joy to behold. Fully landscaped and with many specimen trees and a lovely water feature this house feels part of the fabric of this beautiful valley - yet is just moments from the villages of Rathdrum and Laragh. There is a commuter train service from Rathdrum allowing for an easy commute to Dublin, while Laragh and Glendalough are just a short drive away.

Entrance Hall The imposing front door opens to a magnificent hallway with flagstone flooring and double height ceiling. The magnificent cantilevered Maple wood staircase creates a sense of grandeur while light floods into the hallway from the floor to ceiling windows to the rear. This central hallway provides access to all the varied areas of this wonderful home.

Sunroom area To the rear of the hallway, with solid timber flooring and access to the beautiful gardens.

Games Room Not many houses have space for a pool table but Granite Lodge has no shortage of bright spacious reception rooms. This lovely room provides views to the gardens and has solid timber flooring.

Family room Cosy sitting room forming part of the original cottage. Solid fuel, cast iron stove and garden views to front and side.

Kitchen Magnificent family kitchen with flagstone flooring, granite worktops and handmade timber units. This sociable space is ideal for family dining or entertaining and the garden views from the floor to ceiling windows are second to none. There is ample storage and a Rayburn range which is connected to the central heating. French doors lead to the sheltered veranda on two sides and the room is bright and airy with striking decor.

Family Bathroom Fully tiled and fitted with Jacuzzi bath, corner shower and modern cherry wood vanity unit with glass sink. wc, and whb.

Office / bedroom 5 Large office with timber flooring and garden views. Also suitable for use as a ground floor bedroom.

Utility Room Plumbed for washing machine and tumble dryer.

Living room Smaller than the main reception room, this cosy living room has wood burning stove, warm timber floors and access from a small staircase to the upper level.

Upstairs The magnificent staircase forms a bridge over the wide hallway and provides access to the upper level where three further bedrooms and an attic room are located. The magnificent reception living room is also at this upper level.

Sitting Room This wonderful room conveys the idea of a very grand tree house, perched as it is on the upper level of this fine home, with direct access to the wrap around veranda overlooking the valley. Solid timber flooring, double height ceiling and raised fireplace - ideal for cosy winter evenings.

Master Bedroom Spacious master suite with walk in wardrobe and well-appointed bathroom. French doors lead to the wrap around veranda overlooking the gardens. The ensuite shower room is fitted with corner shower, wc, whb and mosaic tiling, while the walk in wardrobe provides ample storage space.

Bedroom 2 Double bedroom with solid timber flooring, fitted wardrobes and garden views to front.

Bedroom 3 Double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and timber flooring.

Attic room Currently used as an additional bedroom space, with timber ceiling and painted timber flooring. Garden views.

Travelling south on the N11 take the exit for Laragh and Glendalough, through Ashford village. Upon entering Laragh, turn left at Lynham' s pub and continue along this road for approx. 7 miles in the direction of Rathdrum. Granite Lodge is on the left.
