The double-fronted, neo-Classical facade of No. 3 Churchfields extends a welcoming embrace. Flanked by a guest lodge and garage, it is as if the house is opening its arms to greet you. This impression is amplified once inside, as the exceptionally impressive hallway, rising to double-height via a light-well balcony, draws you into the heart of the home.
The largest of twenty houses built in the private Churchfields Estate on the grounds of the 700 acre K Club, No.3 occupies a site that is larger than their peers. This allows for an extravagance of space, in what is also an exceptionally comfortable and peaceful home.
The K Club is, of course, famous as host of the 2006 Ryder Cup, and No. 3 enjoys views across the lake to the fairways. It also, however, benefits from peaceful and private gardens, making the entire home an oasis of tranquillity, less than an hour from Dublin City Centre and Airport.
As owner, you enjoy two memberships to the K Club, and have access to the facilities of its Five Star Hotel. All this makes No. 3 a perfect retreat, or a year-round family home.
A stunning double-height hallway draws you in to the house, leading to the large kitchen/ breakfast room, that has its own separate pantry and utility room, and which is warmed by an Aga.
A sun room off this has garden and lake views, and functions as a beautiful alternative dining space.
Next door, the larger and more formal dining room, and the drawing room and living room beyond, all have lake views, with bay and French windows to the patios. These in turn lead on to the rear gardens. The living room is a particular delight with views to the rose garden that runs to one side of the house.
The interiors were designed in 2018 by award winning London-based Irish designer Bryan O'Sullivan. Using the highest quality craftsmanship and fittings, the house has all the air of a tranquil, and beautiful private hotel, at the same time as being a comfortable place to spend your time, whether relaxing or entertaining. Also on the ground floor, there is a wine room and bedroom suite. The house benefits from an internal lift.
Upstairs a very generous landing sweeps you through to the five further bedrooms, with a clerestory cupola adding additional light. These bedrooms are all exceptionally spacious, with views of the lake, gardens and golf course. The master suite has a large dressing room and en-suite bathroom; with two further en-suites, and a family bathroom on this floor.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Surrounded by approx. 0.24 Hectares (0.59 Acres) of mature planting, No. 3 Churchfields is beautifully private. A symmetrical pair of gravel drives meet at the gates, and part at a paved walkway to the front door. Ornamental shrubbery and trees further distinguish the facade.
To the side, a beautiful rose garden blooms in the summertime, while to the rear, lawns lead down to the lake. This lake separates you from the fairways, so you can soak up the games from a peaceful vantage point.
From the house, broad patios lead to stone steps and on to the lawns. Mature trees and hedges flank the site, adding to the privacy. Borders and bedding create secluded areas within the gardens, giving you additional spots to enjoy.
Outbuildings include a gardener's room, storage room and toilet. There is a beautiful Alitex greenhouse, a spacious double garage, and a separate one-bedroomed lodge, which would make for ideal additional guest accommodation, staff quarters, or an au pair flat.
Famous as hosts for the 2006 Ryder Cup, the K Club is known around the world as a haven for golfers. No. 3 Churchfields is set within a private estate on the 700 acre parklands of the K Club, on the banks of the River Liffey. Owners here can also avail of the K Club's five star hotel facilities, including the spa and renowned restaurants.
