Secluded bungalow in Lucan for €775,000
It looks like an average bungalow on the outside but this family home has space, great views over Lucan Golf Club – and it sits at the end of a tree-lined avenue
The rear views from this large two-storey home, perched on a height above Lucan Golf Club, in west Co Dublin, are the highlight of the property.
A secluded and meandering tree-lined avenue behind the Lucan Spa Hotel leads to this seemingly modest family home, hidden away amongst forest and greenery.
A pretty, yet somewhat average looking bungalow from the front, Artisan Lodge spreads into something much larger upon entry through the front door.
On the ground floor is the kitchen/livingroom, a study, a bedroom and a bathroom. Both the livingroom area and the master bedroom have views of the immaculately groomed golf club below. The ground floor bedroom is bright and spacious, with enviable views through large picture windows.
The kitchen/livingroom has exposed beams and a solid maple wood floor. The kitchen is small and dated, though, and would need a lot of work – and the same could be said for the livingroom space. But the large patio doors that lead out onto a south-facing balcony flood this space with light and add great appeal to the property.
Built in 1995, it has an expansive basement with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a store room. It is floored with Alicante stone marble tiles.
Downstairs is quite dark – the large staircase window is a little wasted due to the proximity of a solid concrete wall facing it. Two of the bedrooms have good light and access to the garden.
The garden itself needs work – it is currently overgrown and a little untidy, though it’s nothing that a little elbow grease wouldn’t sort out.
At garden level there is also a self-contained unit, which includes a kitchen, bathroom and living space – ideal as guest accommodation or as a home office. Again it needs a little sprucing up, but nothing major.
There is a spiral staircase from the garden up to the kitchen balcony, where there is a table and chairs – and a dream of eating breakfast in the sun enveloped in the greenery all around.
With unrivalled views and privacy, as well as that beautiful wooded avenue as an entrance, this property has the potential to make a very picturesque family home.
