Description

A beautiful Georgian style lodge nestled on the shore of the famous Lough Derravaragh, offering spectacular lake views and the utmost privacy, just over an hour from Dublin Airport

Derravaragh Lodge is without doubt one of the finest properties on Lough Derravaragh and

from the moment one drives through the gates one will be enchanted with this very special

property. A sweeping beech lined avenue winds through rolling farmland leading to a

large gravel sweep to the front of the property, leaving the world behind you. The situation

can only be described as spectacular, surrounded by c.46.75 acres of rolling farmland and

beautifully perched on the shores of Lough Derravaragh, with spectacular views over the

lough to the mountains beyond, and, of course, enviable lake access.

It is hard to believe that the residence, designed by renowned architect Jeremy Williams,

was only built in 2004 as it fits elegantly and majestically in its grounds and mature scenic

backdrop. Rarely does such a meticulously designed period style property come to the

market.

The Residence makes a superb family home, conveniently laid out and although it impresses

by its grandeur it very much feels like home. The house has an appealing combination of

grand and more intimate reception rooms on a manageable scale. The rooms are bright and

well-proportioned. Throughout the house there are exquisite features, such as the ornate

cornicing and centre roses, the grand hand crafted chimney pieces and panelled mahogany

doors with decorative architrave surrounds as well as hardwood sash windows in all rooms.

The Lodge which extends to 36.87 sq.m (3,880 sq.ft), is entered via a large panelled door

to the reception hall, with flagstone floor, chimney piece, corniced celling and decorative

domes over the doorways. The magnificent drawing room is accessed from the hall, where

three windows command spectacular views over the gardens to the lake shore. A door

from the entrance hall also leads to the elegant dining room, with decorative cornicing

and beautiful chimney piece. Doors from the drawing room and dining room lead to the

charming bay windowed, bespoke country kitchen with marble counter tops, with 4 oven

Aga and centre island. A door from the kitchen leads to the cosy family room which is in

turn connected to the study. A large boot room and utility area are also accessed from the

kitchen with a charming half back door leading to the outside. The four ensuite bedrooms

are located at the opposite end of the house, two of which are overlooking the lake. The

master bedroom is delightfully situated in one of the bays of the house and has a large

ensuite and dressing room.

Situated adjacent to the Lodge are two large garages, two loose boxes and a glasshouse.

The gardens surrounding the Lodge include extensive rose beds, delicate flowers, mature

trees and shrubs. A Ha-Ha separates the gardens from the remaining lands. The lands

which surround the property are of excellent agricultural quality. Charming historic stone

residences, farmyard and outbuildings are located on the lands.

County Westmeath is an area of rolling countryside interspersed with loughs and farmland about an hour’s drive west of the Dublin area. The property is situated a short drive from the town of Castlepollard, with an range of pubs, shops and cafes. The village of Coole is also a short distance away. Derravaragh Lodge is approximately 15 minutes drive from Mullingar, the principal town in the area and is linked to Dublin via the N4/M4. Mullingar has a vast array of supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, bars and Pubs. The university town of Athlone is about an hour away.
