Full Description

Avondale Lodge is a rather unique property. The original gate lodge was built in 1905 at the entrance to what was the Avondale Estate. This property stands on an impressive 2.75 acres with 50 metres road frontage and is located off the Old Lucan Road which is a residential road that now ends at the King's Hospital School, adjacent to the N4 motorway. Behind the impressive granite pillars and gates, the original lodge has been renovated and a beautiful two storey contemporary extension added to the side, blending old world charm with light filled contemporary accommodation. The property extends to approximately 270 sqm (2906 sqft). There is detached triple garage with roller shutter doors and a loft. One enters a marvellous reception hallway with double ceiling heights, glass to ceiling glazing and a bespoke open thread staircase to the first-floor accommodation. This hallway is the bridge that links the original gate lodge to the newly built portion of the house. The gate lodge comprises two bedrooms, an en suite and a reception room that could potentially be a sixth bedroom if required. these rooms have high ceilings and original feature fireplaces. In contrast the newly completed accommodation is laid out over two floors and boasts á la mode stylish rooms with clean architectural lines. Both the reception room and open plan kitchen/living/dining room has large sliding doors that fully capitalise on the south facing aspect and lead to a paved patio area. These are wonderful light filled rooms. There is a large utility room off the kitchen and a guest WC and cloakroom off the hallway. Upstairs there are three large double bedrooms each with an en suite shower room and built in wardrobes.
The site is zoned HA-LV in the South county Dublin Development Plan 2016- 2022 – To protect and enhance the outstanding character and amenity of the Liffey Valley. The Liffey Valley was the first area in Europe to receive an S.A.A.O (Special amenity area order) that rigorously restricts development with strict guidelines and this property falls within that area. While the site is unlikely to be suitable for further residential development the integrity of the surrounding will be protected.
The location provides easy access to the N4 and M50 Road Network giving access to the city at large. The Liffey Valley Shopping centre, Lucan Village, Palmerstown village with all their extensive amenities are virtually on your doorstep.
