Def Leppard musician's home is simply 'savage'

Def Leppard’s bass guitarist Rick Savage has decided to leave our fair isle and his glam Irish home is now on the market for an advised minimum value (AMV) of €1.85m.
Based in Enniskerry, the beautiful family home of Winton Grove satisfies the desires of the most extreme outdoorsy type while also enjoying excellent convenience to the N11 and M50 for a direct route to the city centre.
Well designed and spanning approximately 5400 sq ft in floor space, the attention to detail and quality workmanship is evident throughout this modern Wicklow property.
The high standard of fitting is what makes this stunning estate stand out – except for the renown of its rock star owner and his family of course!
Rick Savage, who bought the house with his wife Paige for 1.8m, is now scratching itchy feet with a move back to the UK.
But what he's left behind for a growing family is nothing but magnificent.
Greeted by a Spanish Travertine stone floored entrance hall, a wonderful solid oak staircase connects the two levels of this 5-bed accommodation.
Double folding doors separate the semi open plan drawing room/dining room with the fully fitted 'Pronome' kitchen.
But it is the stunning living room with vaulted ceiling is a real winner of the first level with a magnificent feature open fire place.
Two double bedrooms (one with an en suite), a separate bathroom and an office give a polished feel to the layout of the ground floor, that comes complete with guest bathroom and cloakroom.
Up the two-pronged stairs, the spacious landing allows access to the viewing gallery, an additional three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master suite comes with a separate walk in dressing room and large en suite bathroom.
The fantastic lifestyle of the previous owner can be seen in the addition of the 900 sq ft detached bar (in full working order) and games room fitted with cinema area, separate guest bathroom and upstairs pool room.
But that’s not all. The property comes with the added bonus of 1.2 acres worth of surrounding land.
Accessed through automated teak timber gates, the lanterned gardens open into a CCTV protected forecourt, which has room for up to six cars on his gravelled path.
While the side of the property manages to house a tennis court, the south west facing rear garden is laid out in lawn with a 1,500 sq ft decked area bordered by a low level stone Donegal quartz wall.
Close to Kilmacanogue, Delgany, Greystones and Bray, a bus route links commuters from Kilmacanogue to the DART in Bray.
Amenities for potential owners are abundant also with Powerscourt golf course nearby, as well as some leading schools, including Aravon, St. Gerard's and Presentation College, Bray.
