Just outside Dublin’s M50 ring road where the bustling city starts to give way to golf courses and vegetables, an old coach house has been charmingly transformed into a quiet and refined country home.
Within easy reach of all the main transport routes, this is an ideal base from which to explore the enchantment of Ireland’s capital from an historic domain.
Flanked by the Royal Canal to the north and Beechpark and Luttrellstown Castle to the south, the Courtyard and it's Carriage House is hidden away from all the noise of the city, yet is 21minutes by train to city centre and 10 minutes from M50 and 25 minutes to Dublin International airport.
The Carriage House forms the west side of an enclosed cobblestone courtyard and garden dating from the early 1700’s and originally part of Luttrellstown Castle. It backs onto the famous Shackleton Gardens soon to be open to the public.
The conversion from original carriage house to a beautiful home has left arches where giant doors once hung filled with picture windows painted plum in contrast to the pumpkin flushed walls. There is wheelchair access to the ground floor. Chauffeur service link available on request.
The spacious kitchen / dining area retains some stable detailing in iron grids, fittings and bruised door posts.
The dining room connects through a small parlor study into the garden courtyard, and the combination of informal spaces positively encourages entertaining.
The Carriage House enjoys "Preferred Supplier" status with Luttrellstown Castle Resort.
The upstairs double bedrooms retain the original rustic stone walls and tiny windows. The master is ensuite, and the second is served by a family bathroom. The house is equipped with everything you would expect in a luxury home.
