Brady and McCarthy are delighted to bring this unique property to market: Church Hill Lodge, Church Hill, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow.
The beautiful stone property, built circa 1850s, originally formed part of the Powerscourt Estate. Today, it is a charming 2-bedroom gate lodge nestled within the heart of the tranquil village of Enniskerry. The property sits on a quarter acre site with its old stone boundary wall, gated off-street parking and pedestrian access. In upgrading the practical comforts of the home, the current owners have retained this property’s timeless character and charm. At the hub of the home is the efficient solid-fuel Stanley stove with back boiler resting on its own Liscannor flagstone in original hearth and custom-made traditional pine internal doors are continued throughout the house.
This hidden gem is set against the backdrop of idyllic natural beauty. The generous gardens at the rear boast a variety of mature evergreen and deciduous trees and the peaceful front lawns offer seasonal shelter and a sun-lit haven with roses climbing the outer walls of the house. The property is sheltered with high hedgerows and mature shrubs offering added privacy. In its heyday, the gardens won numerous Wicklow’s Best Small Garden Awards.
Accommodation comprises an entrance porch and hall, living room with adjoining study, kitchen with access to the enclosed side passageway, two double bedrooms ensuite and utility with rear access. Outside, a winding path leads one around the elevated gardens with gated off-street parking to the rear.
The village of Enniskerry is renowned for its built heritage and its lively cafes and village pubs, restaurants and shops. On the doorstep is Powerscourt Estate with its magnificent gardens and walks and Powerscourt Golf Club and Hotel. Nearby Kilruddery and other former estate houses and celebrated gardens lie within a stone’s throw of the village.
New owners can also avail of amenities including golf, horse riding, driving and walking routes through the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains or scenic beach and coastal walks through nearby Bray and Greystones, and sailing in Dun Laoghaire or Bray. Transportation links include the N11 (QBC), M50, LUAS (Cherrywood) and DART (Bray) allowing easy access to Dublin City centre and surrounding areas. The location allows for a complete get-away from city life with a simple daily commute by public or private transport.
Some of South County Dublin’s and County Wicklow’s finest primary and secondary schools are located nearby including St. Mary’s and St. Gerard’s National School and Powerscourt National School, St. Gerard’s, Loreto Secondary School and Presentation Bray.
