TUCKED AWAY OFF Corbawn Lane and within a five-minute walk of Shankill Beach in south Dublin, Eaton Brae Lodge ticks every box when it comes to location.

As for design, the three-bed bungalow exceeds expectations.

Originally built in 1858, the Victorian lodge was extended in the 1980s. It was then completely refurbished in 2014, while a remodel in 2018 included the addition of a large open-plan kitchen.

While Eaton Brae Lodge has seen multiple renovations over the years – including redecoration to the interior and exterior, new floors, doors, electrics and plumbing – it still retains much of its original charm and character. Original features include the handmade sash windows, mosaic tiled floor and the feature granite piers on the facade.

The alluring property boasts a perfectly suited private location, with tall hedging to the front and side, as well as mature shrubs and trees to the rear. 

Stepping inside, the accommodation is filled with natural light and features a modern yet welcoming interior, with beautiful mosaic floors in the hallway. There’s a reception room to either side of the hallway, with a solid fuel stove in each.

The larger of the two rooms leads through to the inner hall, which gives access to the three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes and are painted in neutral tones to complement the rest of the house, while the bathrooms are finished in timeless tiling.

A narrow hallway with a built-in library leads to the open-plan kitchen and dining area,  where sliding glass doors fill the space with light. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary grey/green units and built-in appliances, while there’s room in the dining area for a table to seat at least eight. 

The sliding doors open from here to a pebbled courtyard, which makes for the perfect spot for al fresco dining. For families with little ones who want to play on the grass, there’s a walkway from the courtyard to a south-facing lawn area. A utility room and cloak room complete the accommodation.

To the front of the property, there’s a driveway with parking for two cars, plus an electric charging point.  

Despite feeling far removed from every day life, Eaton Brae Lodge benefits from a highly convenient location. Shankill Dart station is just a five minute walk away, while there are multiple schools, shops and sports clubs in and around the village. Shanganagh Park and its 89 acres are a 10-minute walk away, while the coast is just a stone’s throw from the property.

The trip to Bray will take 10 minutes by car, or you can be in Dun Laoghaire in 15 minutes. Thanks to the nearby M50 and N11, Dublin city centre is all but a 35-minute drive away. 

Eaton Brae Lodge, Corbawn Lane, Shankill, Dublin 18 is on the market for €735,000 through Sherry FitzGerald via Daft.ie.
