Rarely does such an exceptional property come to the market in this most scenic of locations. Granite Lodge is located in the heart of the Vale of Clara, less than an hour from Dublin and on the banks of the Avonmore River. This wonderful family home started life as a smaller workman cottage created from the wonderful Wicklow Granite found in this area. However, while the original cottage has been retained and all of the character remains, the substantial extension to the house ensures there is no compromise on space now, with the house extending to over 320 sq. m.
Nestled within the trees on this lovely 1 acre site, care and attention has been taken to ensure the house complements the exceptional setting. There is a wraparound veranda on both the ground floor and the upper level to ensure the very best of views and internally the house is in excellent condition. With many spacious reception rooms and 4 double bedrooms there is certainly no shortage of space and the gardens are a joy to behold. Fully landscaped and with many specimen trees and a lovely water feature this house feels part of the fabric of this beautiful valley - yet is just moments from the villages of Rathdrum and Laragh. There is a commuter train service from Rathdrum allowing for an easy commute to Dublin, while Laragh and Glendalough are just a short drive away.
