Full description:

Olive Lodge is a property of true distinction combining luxurious accommodation coupled with the highest standard of build quality

*Open View: Saturday October 27th 11-12pm*

Commissioned and designed by ODKM Architects to an exceptionally high specification and finish, it needs to be viewed to be appreciated.

Set over 4 floors, all solid concrete including stairs, architraves and skirtings flush with walls and a central vacuum point on every floor. This contemporary house offers generous accommodation of approx. 398 sq m / 4,284 sq ft. It is superbly located in an exclusive and desirable location of Woodside Drive, Dublin 14.

Olive Lodge sits proudly behind galvanized steel electronic gates with a cobble locked forecourt, landscaped flower and shrubbery beds and assess on both sides to the rear garden. Built in 2016, the front fašade has been elegantly designed with wonderful proportions using a soft coloured redbrick which is framed by granite surround and window sills.

The owners brief was to create a home that was to a Passive Standard. This meant wrapping the entire house with 240 mm insulation, including laid under the foundations. All the windows and glass doors are 'security by design' triple glazed aluclad made by Velfac. The heating is managed by an economic highly efficient Air to Water Heat Pump system, which heats the house by extracting energy from the outside air. This system typically costs 50% to 60% less than traditional fossil fuel systems coupled with having a very low carbon foot print.

The most enjoyable part of the house is the sense of space which has been created by the high
ceilings and plentiful light pouring in. The simplicity of the layout creates versified space where reception areas work together for both entertaining purposes and for everyday living.

Every space has been given a practical use including the basement which is used in both a functional and fun manner. One could call the laundry room a luxury given its great size, while on the other hand it is most certainly a luxury to have a private cinema room, home gym and a sizable game or play room and wine cellar. The rear garden features a long patio area which leads directly onto the lawn. This is a fine space to enjoy the morning sun and offers an incoming purchaser the opportunity to create their own garden.


Olive Lodge, Woodside Drive is in an excellent location, on the most exclusive road in Rathfarnham, literally on the corner of Rathgar, Terenure and Churchtown. There is an abundance of amenities at the door step, including the Badger Glen Park, Dodder Park, Bushy Park and the Dodder River Walk.

Dundrum Shopping Centre is 3.5 km in distance, while the City Centre is 6.4 km with regular buses from the bus stop on Breamer Road and Rathfarnham Road. There are a choice of schools including High School, Wesley College, Alexandra College, Sandford Park College, Gonzaga College, Terenure College amongst others. The location in Rathfarnham is ideal for quick access into the city as well as to the M50 motorway links and the Dublin Mountains.

Buses: No. 14, a number of no. 15 buses and no. 16 bus are all approx. 8 min walk from Woodside Drive. No. 16 goes to Airport, stops at Dublin City University on it's way.

This superb residence would make an ideal home for anyone looking for a classically designed home located close to the heart of Dublin.
