North Lodge is a most charming detached Victorian style residence of immense style and character situated in an area of natural scenic beauty at Portmarnock Velvet Strand. The property is set amid circa 0.24 ha/0.6 acre of mature and wonderful lawned gardens with colourful shrubbery, large detached garage and private access to the renowned sandy beach.
Originally constructed in 1870, the lodge was one of two gate lodges for the country home of the Jameson family, famous distillers of Irish Whiskey. However, following a fire in the early 1970's the lodge was rebuilt.
Approached by impressive wrought iron entrance gates the lodge which is constructed mainly of red brick enjoys gracious well proportioned accommodation throughout. Off the entrance porch there is a fine drawing room/reception with red brick fireplace and feature gallery style landing above. Off this room there is access to a spacious living room with conservatory providing access to the rear garden.
At ground floor level there is a large kitchen and separate utility room together with an excellent master bedroom en-suite with dressing room and family bathroom. The main staircase leads to the first floor where there is a wonderful multi-purpose playroom as well as third bedroom. A spiral staircase leads from the third bedroom to the ground floor.
Coastline lovers will appreciate the scenic walk along the seafront to Malahide village and golfers will embrace the many world famous golf clubs nearby, most particularly Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links on its doorstep.
