LAKE PARK HOUSE sits on the shore of Lough Dan near the village of Roundwood, Co Wicklow.

Built in 1835 as a shooting estate, remaining a rural retreat on its 110 acres of land, it was also once the home of novelist Edna O’Brien.

The Lake Park estate is now for sale at €3,500,000 with Ganly Walters via

While period features in the formal reception rooms have been retained and restored, the house has also been added to in a sensitive contemporary style and features a number of very modern luxury fittings.

The modern kitchen and family room offer high vaulted ceilings and a large fireplace, with a range fitted as part of a contemporary kitchen.

Meanwhile, a beautiful conservatory looks out over the grounds and the Wicklow hills.

The whole house has been fitted with a German-designed heating system to ensure what the agent’s description calls “comfortable living”.

There are three bedrooms in the main family wing, all en suite, while a guest wing contains an additional three bedrooms and a bathroom. Oh, and a self-contained staff apartment.

On the estate is a restored walled garden with flowers, vines and fruit trees; by the lake is an area of oak woodland that has existed since the 16th century.
