WITH BEAUTIFUL GARDENS, outdoor seating areas and the sounds of nature all around, River Lodge is the kind of place you’d want to be on a hot summer’s day.
Located on an idyllic landscaped site in Screggan, Co Offaly, the five-bed property is bordered by the Clodiagh River to the rear and boasts a south-facing raised riverside deck.
There’s also a large stone patio area with plenty of space to dine al fresco, or you could head across to the block built summer house, where there’s a built-in BBQ and seating area. Spacious lawns to the rear and side of the property are sure to be enjoyed by younger members of the family, while mature trees add a sense of privacy.
Stepping inside, the 3,498 sq ft property has a bright and airy feel. There are several large living areas throughout the house, including a living room and lounge on the first floor.
On the ground floor, a teak wood door opens to the tiled split level entrance hall. The L-shaped kitchen, dining room and sitting room is to the right, where double doors and large windows flood the space with natural light and provide picturesque views of the garden.
The kitchen is fitted with cream units, granite worktops and a large central island and opens into the living area. This space features solid wood timber flooring and a feature fireplace with a solid-fuel stove, plus room for a dining table to seat six.
For special occasions, the formal dining room is accessed via the kitchen. Sliding glass doors separate this room from the conservatory, which enjoys views of the river and the Slieve Bloom Mountains.
There are three bedrooms on the ground floor, with an en suite extending from one. Two other bathrooms and a utility room complete this level.
A solid timber oak staircase leads to the first floor, where the split level landing is used as a library. From here, there’s an open-plan lounge and living area with solid timber flooring and Velux windows. A feature window in the lounge overlooks the gardens, summer house, river and the mountains, making for the perfect backdrop to unwind.
The master bedroom is on this floor, complete with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom, as well as another large double bedroom with a bathroom.
There’s no shortage of scenic woodland walks nearby, while Tullamore Golf Club is a quick five-minute drive away. The centre of Tullamore town can be reached in 15 minutes.
With beautiful gardens, spacious interiors and a scenic location, River Lodge offers the perfect escape from everyday life.
