This is a quaint three bedroom cottage which was formerly the Game Keepers cottage for Powerscourt Estate. Originally dating from the 1850s, it has been upgraded to provide all modern conveniences and stands on circa 0.5 acres. It is a truly stunning rural retreat with a truly unique appearance. The location is unparalleled and there are panoramic views of the sea, countryside and Sugarloaf Mountain, and on a clear day you can see Wales! Total privacy and seclusion is guaranteed.
Djouce Cottage enjoys an elevated position with the site mainly laid out in lawns with a gravelled parking area and raised flowerbeds creating a splash of year round colour. The gardens boast panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from Dalkey to Vartry Lakes to Wicklow. There is an attractive lean-to stone built fuel store to one side and to the rear is the vast area of Djouce Commons.
The accommodation includes the kitchen, utility room, lounge, bathroom and three bedrooms. There is a wonderful country kitchen with an attractive terracotta tiled floor and original brick fireplace which is now home to a Jotul pot belly stove. A rare detail is the substantial granite head above the fireplace. Other features include a timber vaulted ceiling which creates a wonderful airy feeling, quaint window seat and open staircase to the upper floor.
The living room overlooks the gardens and is flooded with natural light. One of the bedrooms is downstairs and features oak timber flooring, a timber panelled ceiling with recessed down-lighters and panelled walls.
Upstairs the master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with timber panelling creating a sense of space. This room boasts wonderful views of the surrounding countryside below and to the rear. The upstairs dormer bedroom features timber panelled ceiling reflecting the roof shape with recessed downlighters and boasts panoramic views.
The villages of Enniskerry, Kilmacanogue and Roundwood are all close by. Many amenities are within easy reach including the famous Powercourt Gardens and Waterfall. Equestrian and hill walking pursuits are plentiful including the Wicklow Way which is just 40 minutes away.
