This period home has been beautifully decorated throughout, and also features a generously-sized garden. 


Located just off Monkstown Road and originally built around 1822, Purbeck Lodge covers 3,300 square feet, making it a spacious and relaxing family home. Its Georgian proportions only add to its sense of calm, and it retains many original details.

Granite steps lead to the front door, and the grand entrance level. The hallway features decorative ceiling cornicing, and leads to the dual aspect drawing room, complete with marble fireplace and its own ceiling plasterwork.

This level also has an equally impressive dining room, with large sash windows. A perfect place to entertain guests or host family gatherings, its current owners have decorated it in a mix of tonal neutrals, making it feel both warm and contemporary.

The kitchen and breakfast room are at the rear of this level, with a large sash window making the space feel bright, complemented by the cream units. A range cooker will appeal to keen chefs.

On the garden level are a number of useful spaces, including a service kitchen, wine cellar, utility room, a living room, and a bedroom.

The first floor has four additional bedrooms, two of which have their own shower room ensuites, and there is also a family bathroom.

Outside, the garden wraps around the house, providing privacy, with a combination of mature hedging and border plants. The house is just a short walk to Monkstown village, with its popular specialist shops and restaurants.

The seafront is also a short walk away, as well as the DART, providing easy access to the city centre. Click through our gallery above for a full tour of this house.
