Tudor Lodge is a detached, five-bedroom Victorian property with vast spaces for entertaining, a self-contained flat and an imposing staircase at the heart of the home Just off Church Road in Killiney.
The commanding property sits comfortably on its large gardens of approx. 0.6 of an acre. There is no doubt that this house represents a very rare opportunity to purchase a significant family home which has been beautifully presented and upgraded.
The front displays a visually stunning exterior which raises your expectations for the extensive and well proportioned accommodation which is well laid out over two levels. It is described in
Peter Pearson’s book “Between the Mountains and the Sea” as “a wide five bay treble gabled exterior”.
The property has been completely transformed and upgraded in recent years, very carefully ensuring the character of Tudor Lodge was not affected but significantly enhanced. Imaginative alterations to include a self-contained housekeepers quarters extensive and with an overall floor area of 597 m2 it provides superb generous well balanced accommodation.
Some of the key features include the truly magnificent staircase which opens onto the large landing on the first floor. The kitchen and breakfast area are certainly amongst the finest you will come across with an exceptional standard of fittings. Equally, the generous reception accommodation on the hall floor, particularly the interconnecting drawing and dining rooms, will be hard to beat. As you would expect from a house of this calibre, the bedroom accommodation is superb and includes five full en-suites.
The grounds extend to approx. 0.6 of an acre, are approached through entrance gates and provide a high degree of privacy which the house deserves. They are beautifully landscaped and well laid out in lawns with box hedging, rose garden, mature planting and borders. There is a combination of mature trees both native and exotic and much new planting. The grounds are further enhanced with two large paved patio areas, one directly off the kitchen, the other off the study – both ideal for dining alfresco. There is a superb purpose built shed for bikes and storage.
Finally, the location is second to none: every possible amenity is close by including recreational amenities, Killiney Golf Club and excellent local shopping.
