Full description:

Warren Estates are delighted to present 'The Game Keepers Lodge', a beautifully restored period residence full of charm and character of yesteryear. It stands on a mature walled c. 1 acre site and comes complete with an attractive granite faced Mews. Built by The Earl of Fitzwilliam in the 1800's 'The Game Keepers Lodge' was occupied by staff working on the Coolattin Estate. It enjoys an idyllic situation nestled in the woodlands of the Coolattin Estate and literally across the road from one of Irelands most picturesque parkland courses at Coolattin Golf Club. A wonderful sporting amenity to have on your doorstep!

'The Game Keepers Lodge' stands testament to the opulence of the time in which it was built.

Today, a listed building 'The Game Keepers Lodge' is quaint and managable with many attractive and interesting period features including, granite heads and window sills, decorative plasterwork, ceiling coving and centrepieces, window shutters and the stylish Victorian facade to the outside completes the look. This fine property was extensively renovated in 2013 to exacting standards and was sympathetically restored to it's former glory. The property sports an attractive 2 bed Mews which was once known as the butty where the beaters gathered after the shoot, for soup and a butty sandwich! The Mews is now a comfortable two bed with an open plan living/kitchen area and has been tastefully modernised throughout. This is separate from the main house with independent entrance and parking.

This is the ultimate country residence ideal for those in pursuit of nature, golf, woodland walks and tranquility away from the bustle of city life. This unique property has it all!

'The Game Keepers Lodge' is well located within a few minute's drive of Tomnafinogue Wood (one of Ireland's last remaining oak woodlands) and only 1.6km from picturesque Shillelagh Village. It is also within easy reach of Tinahely, Aughrim and Carnew and about an hour's drive south of Dublin.

Co. Wicklow is renowned as The Garden of Ireland and boasts many areas of great scenic beauty with the former Coolattin Estate ranking highly among them.

About Warren Estates, Co. Wexford

George W. Warren Estates Limited is one of the longest established Auctioneering firms in the country and the best known firm in the South East. It was founded by the late George Wellington Warren in 1871, on his return from America.

The Warren Family successfully operated and expanded the business for generations and most recently George Warren was actively involved in the business until his death in the late 1980’s.

William Gerard Slattery, joined the firm in 1964 and took over the business in the early 1980’s and under his leadership the business developed and prospered. Gerry was closely involved in the Auctioneers professional body – the Irish Auctioneers & Valuers Institute (IAVI), throughout his career and was their President in 1998.

Ciara Slattery joined her Father in the business in 1995 and her brother Niall joined the firm following Gerry’s sudden death in 2001. Together they now run Warren Estates.

We are proud members of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) which is the leading professional body for construction, land and property professionals in Ireland. The SCSI is the result of a merger between the Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCS) and The Irish Auctioneers & Valuers Institute (IAVI).

Warren Estates has established a reputation for integrity and fair dealing over the years and today with our three Auctioneers can offer a comprehensive service in all aspects of estate agency.
