An­chored by dra­matic re­cep­tion rooms with rich pe­riod de­tails, Ea­gle Lodge com­prises one half of a grand Tu­dor-style Vic­to­rian home thought to have been built by Ted­cas­tle coal mer­chants around 1850

win­dow look­ing over the gar­dens of Ade­laide Road to­wards the sea. Like the draw­ingroom next door, it has rich ceil­ing cor­nic­ing.

The large draw­ingroom is the most dra­matic room in the house: it’s a long room with a deep bay win­dow at one end and two more tall sash win­dows look­ing to­wards the sea. The ceil­ing cor­nic­ing and cen­tre rose are in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion, and there’s a large brown mar­ble fire­place with tiles in­set.

‘‘ Ac­cess to the three top-floor bed­rooms is via a min­strel gallery over­look­ing the din­ing room

There are three bed­rooms and a toilet up steep stairs from the land­ing, all with built-in wardrobes and all colour­fully dec­o­rated.

Sea views

The main bed­room prob­a­bly has the best sea views of the house, across the spire of St Paul’s church on Ade­laide Road.

The pretty garden has an as­tro­turf lawn, with ma­ture trees and bushes planted in and around it, and a cou­ple of pa­tio ar­eas. There’s room to park sev­eral cars in the drive­way.

Alder­ley, the other half of the s e mi wi t h an a ddres s on Gle­nageary Road Up­per, sold for a re­ported ¤800,000 in De­cem­ber 2017. The new owner has ap­plied for per­mis­sion for a ma­jor re­vamp of the house, in­clud­ing cre­at­ing an en­trance on Ade­laide Road. Ea­gle Lodge’s owner doesn’t be­lieve that the re­vamp will im­pinge on this property.
