Cappoquin, Co Waterford
Salterbridge Gatelodge, located in the glorious Blackwater valley, dates from the mid 19th Century.
This enchanting property accommodates two people in great comfort with wonderful underfloor heating throughout. Among its interesting features is an octagonal garden room from which the two main rooms, bedroom and sitting room, lead; and the kitchen and bathroom are to the rear. Situated on the Salterbridge estate, on the valley road a mile from the charming village of Cappoquin, the lodge is only 3 miles from the heritage town of Lismore, 20 miles from the sea at Youghal and Dungarvan, and at the foot of the majestic Knockmealdown Mountains.

Salterbridge is a classically proportioned pavilion gatelodge, which was built c.1849 by the Chearnly family, who owned the estate from the mid 18th Century until the 1950s. The lodge, though obviously in habitation in the 1930s when the Glanville family lived there, was derelict by the 1950s. Its function, like all gatelodges, was to indicate to the passer-by the good standing and taste of the original owner, and to display some of the features of the architect's work, re-interpreted from the big house.

HEALTH AND SAFETY:
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently, you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding. If you have any queries about the property you are interested in and would like more clarification please contact Irish Landmark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
