Architecturally Designed Country Residence On C. 8 Acres Of Stunning Gardens And Woodland Grounds For Sale By Private Treaty

Jack Quinn, specialist in Country Homes for QUINN PROPERTY, is excited to present ‘Ballintim Lodge’ to the Local, Irish and International market.

Truly a once off property, this hidden gem is set in an idyllic countryside location in the sunny south east, whilst also near the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. It is only 45 minutes from the M50 at Bray, 1 hour 20 minutes to Dublin airport, 20 minutes to the coast and Ballymoney Golf Club.

The local village of Camolin is 3km, with a good range of services to include primary school, artisan food and coffee shops, pubs, GAA Club, crèche and the renowned Cois na hAbhann, Restaurant, Shop and Garden Centre, it is 6km from Craanford with similar facilities and 14km from Gorey with an extensive array of boutique shopping, amenities and excellent daily commuter services with Bus Eireann, Wexford Bus and the local train station.

The residence, a masterpiece by award winning architect Lindsey Johnson, extends to 6,288 ft² (585m²) and benefits from a very efficient B1 BER rating. Orientated to maximise natural sunlight, it boasts many unique features such as a captivating central atrium connecting all three wings with overhead walkway, artwork and décor elements to include a bespoke Mosaic by the renowned Laura O’Hagan, large windows throughout, impressive patio/terrace areas, two separate kitchens, your own Smoker, taking the art of cooking to a whole new level, a dumb waiter / lift, six bedrooms, two of which are principal bedrooms, one with a terrace off to take in the magnificent sunsets over Sliabh Bhuí.

Prepared to be blown away as you enter this amazing extremely private resort-style home via electric gates leading to an avenue that is 700m long and is filled with hundreds of specimen trees of varying sizes and shapes, each season bringing its own magic, creating a parkland setting that is truly a living canvas of nature itself. Eight acres of quite magnificent, mature pleasure grounds surround the house, with woodland walks and a Christmas tree forest included. A further six acres of pasture / paddock land is available, if desired.

The simply glorious gardens were inspired by the Royal Horticultural Society / Chelsea Flower Show and designed by the famous Irish garden designer, Ralph Wickham. Sympathetically maintained by the current owner, yet always in harmony with the original plans of the unique garden. This home is more than simply a structure, rather a symphony of architecture and nature, enveloped by lush gardens and crafted grounds creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, whilst ensuring the utmost privacy and tranquillity. Properties of this calibre only become available once in a lifetime. The focal point of the garden is the stream that runs through the property and splits to form an island. There are eleven bridges in total which connect various sections of the grounds, with many unique landscapes to be discovered throughout.

Further attractive features include a walled fruit and vegetable garden with raised beds, a potting shed/glasshouse, a 968 ft² (90m²) garage with two electric roller doors that could accommodate four to five cars, used as stables or simply additional storage space.

A surprise at the end of the avenue is the maze, at the centre of which stands a porcelain table and four chairs, ideal for a morning coffee, al-fresco dining and summer picnics.
Potential purchasers will be interested to hear that plans have been drawn up and are available for a swimming pool and spa beside the house with access from the principal bedroom suite, which also includes a sitting room (subject to the relevant planning permission).

In conclusion, ‘Ballintim Lodge’ presents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly exceptional property that seamlessly blends luxury living with the tranquillity of country surroundings. Whether unwinding in the privacy of its expansive gardens or enjoying the convenience of its proximity to urban amenities, this residence offers a lifestyle of unparalleled comfort and sophistication for its discerning new owners.
