Glenbrook is a split-level villa-style home which has been revamped and extended to take advantage of its elevated position with views over Blessington Lakes and the Wicklow Mountains.
Most of the reception rooms overlook the lakes and also have access to the balcony or patio, including the sitting room, dining room, kitchen and living room. Open fireplaces feature in the sitting room as well as the reading room.
Its 410-sqm floor area also accommodates a swimming pool and sauna on the lower ground floor and leads to a sunroom for relaxing after a swim in the cooler days, while access to the sun terrace overlooking the lakes is even more relaxing on warm days.
Its entrance hall and most of the accommodation is on the upper level where the four bedrooms are also located. Two of these rooms also enjoy lake views and another has a bay window offering views of the gardens.
The 1.3-acre site features lawns, shrubs, mature trees, patio, parking for several cars, as well as a detached outhouse which accommodates a studio, office and a coal shed.
Located only a stroll from the village of Lacken, the property is 3.5 miles from Blessington, 10 miles from Naas and 22 miles from Dublin city centre.
