Glen Lodge is a fine double fronted detached Victorian home full of charm and character throughout, with all the necessary ingredients that anyone looking for a home of distinction require. Steeped in local Greystones history, from 1903 to 1922 it served as the Royal Irish Constabulary barracks. With many original period features to include original doors, window shutters, period fireplaces and high ceilings, it really is a home lovers dream. Ideally situated on Church Road, in the heart of Greystones, this location could not be better, literally a stones throw from everything this fine seaside town has to offer. Church Road is a mature and much sought after area - providing a mix of detached and semi-detached period homes, it really offers the best of both worlds - convenience of location coupled with a spacious period home boasting a private sunny rear garden. It is difficult to find something that offers all of this and more.

The accommodation comprises entrance hallway with feature black and white floor tiles. To the front of the house there are two gracious reception rooms - the living room to the right of the hallway and the drawing room to the left. The living room interconnects with the family room to the rear and both of these rooms have matching Victorian cast iron fireplaces. From the hallway you can access the kitchen which has two sets of French doors both leading out to the private sunny westerly facing rear garden. It is flooded with natural light and boasting an Aga, it is the perfect room to relax in throughout the year. A guest wc and storage understairs completes the downstairs accommodation. On the first floor return upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both bright and overlooking the rear gardens. The family bathroom is also on this level. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms both doubles and both overlooking the front gardens. A separate shower room completes the accommodation on this level.

Ideally located off Church Road, Glen Lodge is a stroll to an enviable array of amenities and facilities including an exceptional array of eateries, boutiques, retail outlets and cosy pubs. Also within easy walking distance is Greystones harbour / marina and the picturesque seafront. For those wishing for more adventurous walking routes, the Greystones to Bray Cliff Walk is very popular. Other essential amenities include a number of supermarkets, local public park, library and medical clinics. Greystones has several excellent primary schools and two local secondary schools. Sporting facilities are in abundance and include rugby, soccer, GAA, sailing and tennis amongst many others. Shoreline Leisure Centre houses a swimming pool and gym and Charlesland Recreational Centre has a running track and all-weather sports pitches. There are a variety of exceptional golf courses in the locality including Delgany, Druids Heath, Powerscourt and Greystones to name but a few. Transport links include Greystones DART station, Dublin Bus routes, Aircoach and easy access to the N11/M50 network.
