Enjoying a wonderful sense of seclusion both inside and out, Cullenswood Lodge is a truly unique property, designed and built by its architect owner in 1997. Delightfully unconventional in many ways this is a truly warm and inviting home with generous room proportions and high ceilings more in keeping with many of the surrounding period homes. The double height reception hall with its stunning bespoke staircase follows the gently curved walls makes a striking architectural statement being the axis on which the whole house revolves.

This family home has been designed with exceptional attention to detail resulting in a contemporary, ultra-comfortable, light filled home with a pared-back sense of style. High specification materials, bespoke fit-out and more than a touch of imagination and creativity are the key elements of this distinctive residence.

The accommodation briefly comprises; porch, reception hall, shower room, kitchen/breakfast room, living/dining room, family room and at first floor level there are three double bedrooms – one with en-suite and walk in dressing area and the family bathroom completes the picture.

The location needs little introduction, with an enviable range of facilities at hand; adjacent to Ranelagh, Rathmines and Rathgar and a stroll to the LUAS at Milltown which makes light work of the short commute to the city centre and beyond. There is an enviable selection of well-established junior and senior schools nearby not forgetting the neighbourhood park at Palmerston. It is a just a saunter to the relaxing riverside walks along the river Dodder connecting a series of parklands from Ballsbridge to Terenure.
