New to the market: ‘The Lodge’ in Ballymoe

‘An absolute gem’

This week, selling agents Sherry Fitzgerald P Burke are delighted to bring ‘The Lodge’ to the market – a beautifully presented country home, located in the picturesque village of Ballymoe (F45 W9D0).

‘The Lodge’ was built by the Bagett family in the 1890s and was used as a hunting lodge. It was subsequently used as the local Free State Army HQ before becoming the local doctor’s office in later years. Fr Flanagan celebrated mass in ‘The Lodge’ when he visited Ballymoe in 1946, and Eamonn Ceannt, one of the leaders of the Easter Rising and one of seven signatories of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, was born in the police barracks in Ballymoe nearby, where his father James Kent was stationed.

Set within its own mature grounds of approximately 0.8 of an acre, this is a well maintained, well proportioned and handsome country home, boasting private gardens and idyllic countryside views. Externally, the private gardens encompass this home superbly, with a generous balance of green space, mature hedging and tree lines giving the site excellent privacy.

  Internally, the property has very spacious accommodation, along with high ceilings, excellent kitchen facilities, and large south-facing dining and living rooms, which would make the property ideal for entertaining or relaxing. The house features lovely large windows that fill the residence with natural light throughout the day and offers great views of the River Suck as it flows by, providing ‘a unique moment of bliss’.

The residence contains four large bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room (featuring original fireplace), large dining room, kitchen, south-facing sunroom, office/bedroom, vestibule, and pantry/store in all. Both the living room and the dining room overlook the front garden and river.

The master suite on the first floor comprises of large bedroom overlooking the front garden and the river, a dressing room and a full ensuite bathroom. The first floor also has two

further bedrooms and a large family bathroom. On the second floor, there is a large space that is currently being used as storage, but could be converted to office space or further bedrooms if desired.

This absolute gem provides the perfect opportunity for families to buy a truly special property that is totally private, yet still in the centre of Ballymoe and close to all amenities.
