Full Description

Woodlawn House is a majestic detached Georgian residence dating back to 1799 set amidst wonderful private southerly gardens which are afforded total privacy and seclusion. This utterly captivating residence enjoys a truly unbeatable and idyllic setting just off Churchtown Road within minutes’ walk of both Dundrum and Churchtown Villages. Unquestionably the sale of this landmark property represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the finest properties to come to the market in this locality in recent years.

Originally a working farm standing on 200 acres, Woodlawn House was built by Colonel Montmorency at the end of 18th century. The property has all the fine characteristics one might expect of a fine Georgian residence and embodies all the charm and splendour of this classic building era including high ceilings, sash windows complete with working shutters, beautiful fireplaces throughout and a symmetrical window grid further embellished with two magnificent bay windows to the façade. In the 1840’s the conservatory to the easterly side of the house was added – this was designed by Richard Turner, who famously designed the conservatories in the National Botanical Gardens. During this period, the porch, downstairs bathroom and iron-pillared entrance gates to the front were also added. The property was further enhanced 30 years ago when the present vendors commissioned RIAI Gold Medal Architects Peter & Mary Doyle to oversee a program of modernisation and refurbishment. The result of which is a home of distinction and character with a fusion of natural light filtering throughout creating a superb family home which offers every modern convenience while preserving the rich integrity of its historical importance.

Woodlawn House is approached from The Oaks, a private development just off Churchtown Road Upper. The imposing pillared entrance gates lead to a large gravelled drive to the front of the property. A delightful porched entrance leads to the wonderful entrance hallway. The three principal reception rooms – drawing room, dining room and family room, are all accessed from the hallway. The three reception rooms are all impressively proportioned with high ceiling, coving and beautiful fireplaces. The Turner designed conservatory is situated from the family / study room. The beautiful appointed contemporary kitchen / breakfast room is accessed directly from the dining room leading to a very useful utility room with door to front garden. A rear hallway leads to a cloakroom / store with a downstairs bathroom and staircase to the upper floor. At first floor level an impressive gallery landing leads to the six bedrooms. The master bedroom suite overlooks the garden to the rear and has the benefit of a walk-in dressing room / wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. The remaining bedrooms are all of impressive double proportions with bedroom four and five interconnecting rooms. There is also a family bathroom at this level.

The gardens and grounds of Woodlawn House are a most important feature and are abundantly stocked with numerous shrubs, trees and plants. The garden to the front provides excellent off-street car parking and is screened with mature trees along its northern boundary. The rear garden enjoys a sunny south-facing aspect and is afforded a high degree of privacy. The rear garden is L-shaped with an extensive central lawn area bordering box hedges, mature shrubs, trees and plants including a feature Cherry Blossom tree and a Japanese Cedar tree.
