Deetjen Lodge is an utterly charming house, draped with red and green Virginia creeper and set within its own grounds of over 2 acres. It is idyllically located on a quiet country road in County Meath.
The house is approached by an impressive limestone walled entrance with electronic gates and a curved avenue leading to the front and side of the house. The architecturally designed house was completed in 2005 and it is very evident that it was well thought out and built to the highest standard.
The accommodation extends to approx. 3,132 sq ft / 291 sq metres and comprises an imposing entrance hall with sweeping staircase, drawing room, sitting room, guest en suite bedroom, large open plan kitchen and dining room. Off the kitchen is the back hall with utility room and the playroom/ office. On the first floor there are four bedrooms (2 en suite) and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is a bright spacious room with a large en suite and walk in wardrobe.
The house is surrounded by extensive lawns interspersed with trees, flowerbeds and shrubbery. French doors lead from both the dining room and kitchen to the suntrap sheltered terrace with full vista of the gardens and the paddock beyond. To the rear there is a small post and rail paddock currently used as a children's play area.
The large detached garage is a two storey building with garage space on the ground floor and office on the first floor. The office has its own door access and there is a shower room and store room together with the office. The office, store room and shower room could easily be modified for further living space, subject to planning permission.
Deetjen Lodge boasts many notable features such as a natural slate roof, double glazed wooden sash windows, geo thermal underfloor heating throughout, oil fired AGA cooker, integrated BOSE sound system, natural stone, marble and hardwood floors. The marble fireplaces are bespoke. The property benefits from high ceilings, cornicing and exceptional craftsmanship throughout.
All in all, Deetjen Lodge is a superb house set well off the road in a mature private setting.
