Perched in the heart of Greystones on Church Road, Glen Lodge is the embodiment of relaxed refinement.

Steeped in local Wicklow history, the property previously served as the Royal Irish Constabulary barracks from 1903 to 1922 and still has many of the original period features in place – including large windows, high ceilings and beautifully restored fireplaces. Seamlessly blending old with new, it’s ideally situated and only a short walk from the seaside where you can brave a dip if the weather cooperates.

Inside the front door, you’ll find a bright entrance hallway with statement black and white floor tiles. The living room is to the right of the hallway and interconnects with the family room to the rear. Both rooms have matching Victorian cast iron fireplaces which provide good heat in the winter months. The drawing room is to the left of the hallway.

The kitchen can be accessed from the hallway and has been fitted with two sets of French doors, both leading out to a private westerly facing rear garden. Flooded with natural light, there is an abundance of counter space and cabinets with a cream Aga, the room’s real pride and joy. A guest bathroom and understairs storage complete the downstairs accommodation. 

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms – two overlooking the rear garden, two overlooking the front garden – along with the main family bathroom and a separate shower room.

Outside, the front garden is bounded by original stone and concrete walls with mature hedging. The property has a tarmacadam driveway providing secure off-street parking for up to 4 cars. There is also dual gated side access to the rear garden which is private and not overlooked. Boasting a southwest facing aspect, it is laid out with ease of maintenance in mind. A feature circular patio in the rear garden is the perfect spot to entertain guests for a lazy summer barbeque. 

Ideally located off Church Road, all amenities are accessible by foot with several highly-rated eateries, boutiques, retail outlets and cosy pubs to choose from. Both the Greystones harbour/marina and the picturesque seafront are also within walking distance as is the Greystones to Bray Cliff Walk.
