Located just outside Lucan village and nestled in the centre of its own private 35 acres of farm land is the fully restored 1820's Georgian property "Awood House". It lies just 25 minutes' drive from Dublin city centre and 20 minutes from Dublin Airport. As it is on the west side of Dublin, it gives easy access to the whole country.
Entrance to Awood House is up the sequoia redwood tree-lined drive via the Gate Lodge. You will immediately be faced with fields stretching as far as the eye can see towards the Dublin mountains. A front lawn leads up to the Main House.
This is a family home available only for rentals at selected periods during the year, so it has been furnished and decorated to be loved and to be lived in. Downstairs is a cosy sitting room with an open fire as well as a Drawing Room which also has an open fire. Patio doors lead outside to a patio and BBQ area which faces West and towards the magnificent 280 year old Cedar tree on the lawn.
The sitting room has French doors which open into the dining room and kitchen area. It can be closed off for privacy and cosiness or left open to create a large open plan space. The dining room features a large table ideal for entertaining as it can seat up to 10 people comfortably. There are two kitchens, each featuring an Aga. There is a oil fired Aga as well as a gas-fired one. This is a kitchen area that was meant to be used and is perfect for catering for a large family group. There is additional island seating on high chairs. A separate utility area is home to the laundry facilities.
This home features 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms as well as two guest WC's. The annexe off the kitchen and utility area houses two double bedrooms downstairs and another two directly over them upstairs. Each of the sets of bedrooms shares a bathroom.
