Description

BUSHEY PARK, ENNISKERRY, COUNTY WICKLOW, IRELAND An exquisite late-Georgian
country home magically positioned against a backdrop of the Dublin Mountains
within a picture-postcard like scene, all just 13 miles or 21 km from Dublin
city centre and 1.5 miles or 2.4 km from Enniskerry village. Dublin airport is
about a 30-minute drive away. Completed circa 1815 in the Georgian Villa style
Bushey Park is a wonderful light filled home. An interlinking suite of fine
reception rooms are ideal for entertaining, but equally of a scale so as to be
comfortable for family living. The principal reception rooms link to a large
kitchen and family room and onward to the leisure complex and studio. A main
staircase, back staircase and elevator link to the 8-bedroom suites on the
first floor, each generous and enjoying fine views. The gardens are simply
delightful and very much a feature of Bushey Park, seamlessly linking to the
wider pastoral valley and mountains beyond. Extremely private and secure, a
series of internal pathways meander through the grounds, with large garden
terraces gloriously linking the house to the wider grounds. Magnificent trees
are a feature of the grounds and there are numerous mature broadleaf and
specimen trees, including ancient Beech, Oak, Spanish and Horse Chestnuts,
Scots Pine and Maple trees. The grounds are resplendent with a significant
variety of wildlife. The views magical throughout the year. In 1996 the house
was comprehensively restored and extended by the musician owner, Chris de
Burgh, and his wife, Diane. The noted London based interior designer Simon
Kingi was commissioned to oversee the design of the interiors, including the
design of all ceiling plasterwork, timber joinery work and fabric finishes.
Many modern amenities were incorporated, including advanced security
provision, integrated sound systems and efficient heating systems.
Sympathetically designed and carefully executed, the transition between the
original and the new build is seamless. These works also included the
conversion of stone out-buildings into the generous pool complex and a guest
lodge and created new Georgian style stabling, garaging and workshops. The
stone outbuildings forming a lovely contrast and counterpoint to the scale,
finish and texture of the mansion house. The effect is extremely aesthetically
pleasing and complimentary to the picturesque setting and everything is
presented in superb condition and extremely well maintained. The main house
comprises some 10,597 square feet or 985 square metres of accommodation and
links to the splendid indoor pool complex. Generous in scale and extremely
well equipped, this leisure complex extends to some 12,071 square feet or
1,122 square metres and includes a large pool, a home cinema, music studio and
games room. The nearby guest lodge extends to some 1,495 square feet or 139
square metres and the gate lodge some 70 square metres or 753 square feet. The
coach house style garaging and workshops easily replicate their Georgian
originals, yet are constructed to the highest of modern specifications and, as
such, are easier to maintain. The stable block comprises 4 stables. In all the
grounds extend to some 27 acres or 11.3 hectares and are bounded by a flowing
mountain stream. The immediate area is noted for its natural beauty and has
much to offer. The scenic Wicklow Way walking route is easily accessed and
nearby are some superb trails. Equestrians are well catered for with trails,
riding clubs, polo and hunting. Nearby Powerscourt and Druids Glen offer
championship golfing. Harbours at Wicklow and Greystones provide sea fishing
and sailing opportunity nearby. Enniskerry village has a grocery store, a
pharmacy, petrol station, café and a restaurant. EIRCODE [Property Specific

This calculator is for illustrative and guidance purposes only and is not an offer of a loan. The amount you can borrow will depend on your individual circumstances and is subject to lending criteria, terms and conditions. Your mortgage may be subject to loan to value or loan to income limits and these limits may vary. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business variable rate at the end of the fixed period.

APRC calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. For Buy to Let, APRC includes a fee for the Banks solicitor of €950 plus VAT at 23% plus outlay of up to €350.

Principal Dwelling Homes: The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary. A typical mortgage of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. [The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home].

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP YOUR REPAYMENTS YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME.

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE REPAYMENTS ON YOUR LOAN, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL GO INTO ARREARS. THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR CREDIT RATING, WHICH MAY LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS CREDIT IN THE FUTURE.
