If you want a luxury home to get away from it all, then Kenmare Eco Lodge is the place for you! This beautifully designed home is absolutely in keeping with its setting and the nature that surrounds it. Sleeps up to 6 people in three bedrooms.
As soon as you enter this warm and inviting home you will be enveloped into its stylish yet entirely homely embrace. The large kitchen area is very well laid out so it is functional and warm and attractive. There is a separate pantry area along with a boot room and there is a workspace should you need to use it. The house has wifi throughout.
Patio doors lead outside from the kitchen to a lovely seating area with garden furniture. The garden spreads over 3 acres and has been lovingly planted with shrubs and trees in keeping with the landscape. The gardens lead down to the river's edge where you can paddle and there is a hammock hanging from the trees alongside the river for you to relax and completely switch off from the world around you!
There are wonderful views of the surrounding mountains from every room of this house.
Doors leads from the kitchen through to the split level dining and sitting room area. The dining table is on the upper level and can comfortably seat up to 6 people. A couple of steps brings you down into the sitting room with a wood burning stove (wood is supplied), a cosy suite of furniture and a TV. A second patio area is set outside the sitting room and just off the dining room is a smaller little room which could be used for a quiet moment to read a book or newspaper in peace!
Of the three bedrooms, just one is downstairs. It has a double bed and is ensuite with a wet room rain shower.
The master bedroom is upstairs. It is a large room with a separate dressing area. The views from this room really are spectacular over the mountains and the surrounding landscape. This room has a double bed and a dressing table. It is ensuite with a shower.
The third bedroom has both a double and a single bed in it. While it is not ensuite, the main family bathroom is just across the hall from it and features a wonderfully large bath with a shower over it to relax in.
This entire property was built using hemp, lime and wood. The air quality is excellent throughout. Even the roof was constructed using recycled car parts. The windows are made from Austrian larch wood and are very well insulated. The house was painted inside and out using eco paints. The house is heated with an underfloor heat pump.
- A well trained dog is welcome but we respectfully request that you keep them off the furniture and dowstairs. When outside, the dog should be well supervised at all times as there are many neighbouring farms and we would expect you to please clean up fully after your pet.
