Full Description

Drynan Lodge is a detached two-bay two-storey gable-fronted Edwardian style house with dormer attic, built c.1910, situated on approx. 0.5 acres on a large site with commanding southerly views of Dublin Bay. It is truly a gem of an Arts & Crafts designed house.

The house has been painstakingly restored, retaining many if not all of the period features from yesteryear but importantly it has held on to its antique character including art deco style fireplaces in most of the rooms and a solid fuel Grosvenor iron range in the family room. The red clay ridge roof tiles are a particular striking feature as one approaches the house. All the woodwork has been repaired or replaced and there are new triple glazed windows and an updated heating system installed. The property is in fantastic condition, ready for immediate occupancy and there is room to extend to the side, subject to planning permission for those needing a little extra accommodation.
The reception hall retains its original varnished timber floorboards, as do the kitchen- and living rooms, with the latter boasting an ornate oak fireplace with tiled inset and stove. Terracotta tiled floors line the inner hallway, family room, utility room and guest toilet. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, 3 of which have feature open fireplaces. There is a very large attic space with 2 windows installed which is ideal for conversion to a master suite. French doors open from some of the reception rooms on to the south facing terrace to the front of the house. There are bay windows and seating areas in the kitchen and one of the bedrooms.
The landscaped gardens are laid out in tiers of lawn and gravel pathways amidst mature plants and shrubs bordered with railway sleepers with a secluded lower tier providing a delightful large lawn area and a seat to sit back and enjoy the ever changing view of Dublin bay from Wicklow to Dublin city. A driveway behind electronic gates leads to the detached garage to the right hand side and on up to the cobble granite paved parking area to the side of the house. There is also a garden shed and to the rear of the house is a paved area with log storage area and boiler house.
The wonderful southerly aspect ensures maximum levels of afternoon and evening sunshine and the main living and bedroom accommodation is designed to make the most of this marine vista. Watch the merchant ships and ferries glide in to and out of Dublin Port, and the flotilla of pleasure craft sail out from Dunlaoighre. The views at night with twinkling lights from across the bay are just as mesmerising. There is a pedestrian gate leading on to the Old Carrickbrack road below the house.
Old Carrickbrack Road is one of the most highly sought after residential addresses in north county Dublin and for good reason. It is a mature residential road of quality family homes and it is exceptionally well located close to all the amenities Howth has to offer to include nearby Howth Golf Club, the thriving seaside village of Howth with its selection of renowned restaurants, shops and Howth Yacht club for the sailing enthusiasts. There are DART stations in Howth and Sutton and the 31A/B bus service pass the door. Dublin city is a mere 12km and Dublin International Airport is approximately 25 minutes’ drive.
