Secluded Lucan lodge with appeal on the market for €653k
Artisan Lodge €653k
The Crescent in Lucan is a terrace of late 18th century houses built to accommodate an overspill of guests from the nearby Spa Hotel, which opened in 1758. The hotel would later become a schoolhouse for clergymen's sons and, after that, a lunatic asylum.
Next to The Crescent, and pushed back behind it into a situation of greater seclusion, is this six-bedroom modern detached property known as Artisan Lodge.
It consists of a two-storey main house, with four bedrooms, together with a two-bedroom apartment.
The main living area in the house is an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen on the upper level.
This room has a vaulted beamed ceiling with skylights, a stone fireplace with a stove in it, and sliding doors to a balcony overlooking the garden, with spiral stairs winding down.
Apart from that there's also a study or playroom, along with the master bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe.
The main bathroom is also on this level, and has a bath and separate shower as well as a bidet.
Downstairs, at garden level, there's a shower room, and the other three bedrooms are also on this lower floor, one of which has French doors to the garden.
The garden-level apartment consists of a living room with a sliding door to the garden, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room. The total accommodation is 2,530 sq ft.
The site is a quarter of an acre and it's a pleasantly sylvan setting. The rear garden is landscaped with a patio and deck, and it backs almost onto Lucan Golf Club (the R835 getting between the garden and the course.) To the front there are electric gates leading to a parking area.
The asking price is €653,000 and the agent is REA McDonald (01) 628 0625.
