Savills is delighted to present The Lodge', a special 4 bed detached bungalow located on superb south facing grounds extending to about 2 acres.
Situated on the most unique of landscapes on Hop Island, this property has approx. 154m / 505ft of water frontage, with spectacular views of Lough Mahon. The lower portion of the site has independent access and has achieved full planning permission for one detached dwelling which has now expired.
Crossing over to the island itself from the Rochestown road is seamless, with the Lodge nestled beautifully on your right-hand side a moments journey from the island's entrance. Making your way up the driveway you are greeted by a large parking area with space for a handful of vehicles.
Upon entering the property, you are greeted by a welcoming hallway with the kitchen, living dining room on your right-hand side. This special room is surrounded by large windows and glazed doors offering great light and stunning water views. The ceiling is vaulted with exposed wood beams and timber cladding exuding a great sense of warmth and personality. The kitchen and dining portion of the room have direct access to a south facing patio, presenting as an ideal setting for outdoor dining and entertaining, all whilst only a stroll from the water's edge. Making your way back down the hallway, you will find a convenient office, guest lavatory, main bathroom, cloakroom and four bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from both an en suite and walk-in wardrobe.
The grounds on which this wonderful home is situated, are as remarkable as they are rare to the open market. Comprising of about 2 acres, the bungalow sits quietly on a mature site with lawns, shrubbery, trees and a stone wall encompassing the site nicely, providing security and privacy. Beyond the stone wall, to the rear of the bungalow, forms what was originally an apple orchard. This portion of the site is both large and level and presents as a unique opportunity for additional development, subject to planning permission. There are also three stables on site and two newly roofed stone-built garages.
