DESCRIPTION
Dungooly Lodge is the centrepiece of this substantial Land Holding. The impressive Residence is being offered as a "shell building" with roof and glazing completed. Extending to approximately 24,500ft² over 2 floors with a basement spanning to 2580ft² suitable for an underground garage. Elegant Rocha Hardwood sash windows and doors feature throughout the property with Sandstone sills and window surrounds.
The main drive is a sweeping entrance that meanders through maturing woodland and agricultural land, opening out as one approaches this unique residence - striking in its four Indian Sandstone columns - supporting the impressive front Portico.

The ground floor is centralised around the main hall to the front of the property, featuring a drawing room, family room, library, breakfast room, dining room and kitchen with further accommodation for staff. These rooms feature high ceilings and large sash windows offering views over the surrounding countryside. A unique glass dome and glass lantern feature impressively over the Main Hall flooding the grand entrance with natural light.
Nine bedrooms, all with ensuites, are located on the first floor with further dressing rooms, a study and a room for staff. The main bedroom features its own dressing room, ensuite, study and extensive balcony which offers outstanding views over the surrounding countryside.
