Sherry FitzGerald is proud to present Kilcoursey Lodge, an exquisite detached Edwardian family home occupying a wonderful secluded setting in the leafy Burnaby Estate backing onto Greystones Golf Club and within striking distance of the town centre, DART station, South beach and an array of amenities. The Burnaby Estate in the heart of old Greystones needs little introduction, being one of the most sought after locations in the Garden County within an easy commute of Dublin City, centres of business and education. Renowned for its mature leafy environs and impressive period homes, it has remained a popular choice for families looking for fine spacious homes, coupled with privacy combined with sense of community and convenience of location.
Kilcoursey Lodge provides all that and much more. Set on a wonderful elevated site of almost half an acre, it backs onto Greystones golf course in a quiet cul de sac of just seven houses. Pavilion Road, as the name suggests formerly lead to Greystones Golf Club's Pavilion Clubhouse founded in 1895 before it relocated to Killincarrig House at the top of Whitshed Road in the early 1980's
The Burnaby is considered possibly the finest address in the locale. It was the first planned housing development in Ireland following London's Garden City Movement, which sought to provide good living conditions in a green belt within close proximity to an urban area.
Approached through electronic metal gates and a long driveway the house sits high looking out over its expansive front lawn bordered and secluded by mature hedging and trees. It immediately reveals its lovely Arts and Crafts style features under a series of red tile roof pitches and upper floor hanging tile elevations .
Dating from the early 1900's this truly special home retains all of its original character and charm and is presented in excellent decorative condition throughout by its current owners of almost 40 years. There are wonderful high ceilings throughout with decorative plasterwork in the hallway, main reception and bedrooms areas, timber panelling in the living and dining rooms, panelled doors with lovely architraves and handles, eaved ceiling features in the bedrooms, a wonderful lead glass bay window in the dual aspect main living room, sliding sash windows which marry the home and gardens beautifully, feature porthole window in the family room and arched stain glass landing window and magnificent original chimney pieces throughout the accommodation.
