The Lodge is a delightful, early Victorian, gothic gate lodge, full of character, style & charm located at Cronybyrne, Clara Vale, Rathdrum Co Wicklow. The original property was built c.1835 and was formerly the gate lodge to nearby Cronybyrne Demesne. The Lodge is beautifully presented with many wonderful features such as unique gothic style windows, exposed ceiling beams, and whitewashed stone fireplaces. Set on c. 0.8 acres of the most beautiful gardens, the Lodge really is a little piece of heaven in the heart of the Garden of Ireland. Properties like this do not come on the market very often and this gem simply must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The Lodge has been renovated and maintained to a very high standard and benefits from the addition of a modern basement level extension, which is wholly in keeping with the rural character of this fantastic home. The property is wonderfully presented with a mix of original old world features and stylish and modern conveniences. The exposed beams, low ceilings, creaking floorboards and gothic windows transport you to a bygone era. The property is alarmed, has double glazed windows throughout and has been insulated to a good standard. The current owners recently had new energy efficient boiler fitted, as well as an electric car charger.

The heart of the home is the kitchen and snug area which is cosy, welcoming and cleverly laid out to make the very best use of the space available. There is a stunning light filled extension and conservatory, which opens out into and overlooks the private and sunny garden and is perfect for entertaining. Upstairs there are two well appointed bedrooms and a shower room.

The stunning gardens are beautifully laid out, mature and full of interesting plants, shrubs and trees and a small stream which winds its way through the property. The manicured lawns have a wonderful sunny aspect with plenty of potential for extra planting. A shaded Zen garden evokes feelings of calm, tranquility, and peace. There is also a beautifully appointed log cabin with shower room and kitchenette and a small garden studio which is ideal for any number of uses. The large poly tunnel comes with the property and is well stocked with raspberries, strawberries, sweet pea and a wonderful vine that produces grapes. There are three timber sheds and an old stone pig house as well as a double sided wood store.

Cronybyrne is beautifully situated in the heart of the Garden of Ireland, close to both the majestic Wicklow Mountains, and the beautiful Wicklow coastline. Clara Vale, The Vale of Avoca, Glendalough, The Meeting of the Waters and Brittas Bay are all within a short drive.
