Welcome to the lovely Carrick Lodge, a four bedroom detached home in the heart of Foxrock Village. Built by the current owner in 1995 and styled after a Canadian design, it is hard not to appreciate its attractive appearance. Generous living space ensues and a selection of reception rooms are available for all occasions. A large open plan kitchen with utility off and family room with multi-fuel stove are at the hub of the house with a separate conservatory to the rear. An additional substantial living room with oak flooring and gas fire is situated to the front. On ground floor also is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, shower room and a large attic room which the current owners in the past used a kids den but more recently as a storage room.
The property has excellent curb appeal and boasts an attractive red brick finish. For those who enjoy privacy it sits behind gates and is surrounded by mature trees, ensuring a minimal amount of onlookers. To the front the tarmacadam driveway offers off street parking for multiple cars while to the rear the west facing back garden benefits from sun all afternoon and evening.
There is also scope to further enlarge the house to the side and rear should more space be required (subject to planning permission).
