Idyllic Irish countryside lodge by the banks of the River Liffey is for sale

IF YOU'VE ever fancied living a country lifestyle by the waterside but still be close enough to dip into city life, this might be the property for you.

Situated five miles from Dublin city centre, Riverside Lodge is nestled in the idyllic location of Strawberry Beds.

Described by agents Sherry Fitzgerald as an untouched and secluded area of Dublin, it stretches along the River Liffey between Knockmaroon Hill and Lucan.

Liffey12 There's plenty of space to park the car

On the market for €800,000, this detached bungalow sits on extensive grounds totalling around 3.36 acres.

Added to this is approximately 980 ft of frontage onto the River Liffey, which can be reached via a small private jetty that will no doubt appeal to boating and canoeing enthusiasts.

"Another feature of this charming property is a stream with a little bridge linking the main gardens, with an extended wild garden at one side of the house, which provides a lovely therapeutic sound of rushing water," said sales agent Julian Cotter.

"The wrap around main garden with extensive lawns and mature trees provide a most private setting.

"There is a large field to the other side, which would be ideal for a family horse or horticulture."

Liffey8 Spacious living quarters

The property comes with a driveway and carport, which provides extensive offstreet parking surrounded by a wash of green including witch hazel, blue cedar, bramley apple trees and gooseberry bushes.

Riverside Lodge is not far from the Knockmaroon Hill end of the Strawberry Beds and so is close to Mount Sackville School and Castleknock College.

The villages of Castleknock, Chapelizod and Lucan are also within easy reach, while there are a number of golf courses nearby.
