Is the sea a little nippy for your taste?
If you’d like to enjoy a swim whenever the mood takes you, without waiting around for a rare lash of sunshine to warm up the water at Fountainstown, you could do worse than Glen Lodge, which just hit the market.
Guiding at a cool €845,000, Glen Lodge is a six-bedroom, five-bathroom property boasting fantastic views over Fountainstown Beach from every room.
It needs a little updating to bring the decor up to modern standards, but there’s plenty of scope to turn it into a seaside haven.
The icing on the cake? It has its own swimming pool and sauna so you need never risk frostbite out in the elements again.
The property offers tons of space, including a living room, kitchen/laundry/sitting room, dining room, bedrooms, study, billiard room (complete with a full-size antique carved walnut billiard table and billiard accessories) family room, swimming pool and sauna, bathrooms, ensuites, and garage.
According to the selling agents at Auctioneera, the property is bright and spacious with plenty of natural light pouring through the south-facing bay windows at the front.
“The dual-aspect kitchen/laundry room is beautifully fitted with ample storage and countertop space. The sitting room off the kitchen has a vaulted ceiling which floods the room with light and gives access to the patio area at the front of the property,” they say.
The dining room offers sea views too so you can enjoy your fish supper while admiring where it came from.
“The six bedrooms in the property boast plenty of potential as cosy living spaces with the master bedroom boasting a unique fireplace, a walk-in wardrobe, and a well-presented ensuite that features a jacuzzi.”
“The family room is warm and welcoming, it has a solid-fuel burning fireplace which gives the room a homely feel. The study is a spacious area that could be used for a home office, gym, or playroom.”
