Property Overview:


Property Description:

Superb late 19th Century double fronted Manor gate lodge with large surrounding garden in an appealing suburban location.

The property originally served as the gate lodge for the Dunedin Manor House and Estate. The Manor was constructed in the late 19th century but was destroyed by the Free State forces in the 1940’s. The gate lodge remains with much of its original historical charm intact. Surrounded by significant gardens on a site of 0.25 acres, the property offers scope for expansion subject to planning permission. An architect designed development of a substantial family home (in excess of 4000 sq ft) was prepared that is sympathetic to the architectural integrity of the original gate lodge.

Upon entering, a hallway accesses the living room and front bedroom. The living room is airy and well lit, benefited by high ceilings and semi-solid wooden floors. The kitchen/diner lies past the living room, floored with solid wood and laid out in an open plan to accent the spaciousness of the joint rooms. The kitchen is attractive and modern, featuring integrated modern appliances, wooden counters and cabinetry. The diner is capacious, capable of accommodating a large dining table with plenty of room to spare. A glass paneled French doors opens out onto the garden patio. This is an ideal space for entertaining or hosting dinner parties.

The master bedroom is extremely spacious with recessed ceiling lighting, a large window facing the garden and a private glass paneled door that provides access to the patio and garden. There is also significant built-in wardrobe storage and an en-suite with a fully tiled floor and back tiled walk-in corner shower. The front bedroom is bright, lit well through an original wooden sash window. It has a significant built-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is bright and spacious and features the same built-in wardrobes, high ceilings and recessed lighting as the other bedrooms.

The main bathroom, adjacent to the living room, has a fully tiled floor and back tiled full-size integrated bath/shower. There is also a utility room, lit through a skylight with a fully tiled floor, it lies just off the kitchen and accommodates a washing machine and dryer and also a tall cupboard. The garden wraps around of the property. The large gated entrance opens to an L-shaped graveled drive capable of hosting several parked cars. Lawns with tall trees and hedges flank all of the properties boundaries.
