Originally built in 1948, this three-bedroomed semi-detached house will benefit from upgrading and modernisation, but any such investment will reap rich lifestyle benefits thanks to the property’s fundamental underlying strengths. These include a much sought after location just a few steps from Killincarrig village centre and only a few minutes drive from nearby Delgany village and Greystones town centre. The property also has a large footprint with good-sized gardens to front and rear, providing ample scope to extend (subject to planning regulation) the existing house. The property enjoys a quiet setting next to Killincarrig Castle, an historic local landmark dating back to the 17th Century, and has a tarmac drive leading to the public road. In brief, accommodation comprises a kitchen, living room, entrance hall, downstairs WC and a large bedroom on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms (both doubles) and a family bathroom upstairs. Buyers with an eye to flexibility will quickly spot the potential to use the ground floor bedroom for an alternative purpose, such as a second reception, a den, home office or children’s playroom. Outside are good-sized gardens to both the front and rear, offering tremendous potential to further extend and improve. There’s also a large (28.7 sq m) block-built garage, divided into two rooms. This structure is separate from and not included in the floor area of the house. Call us today to arrange a viewing of this house in a great location with excellent potential . LOCATION Castle Villas is a mature residential development right next to the village centre. It takes it name from Killincarrig Castle, a historic local landmark dating back to the 17th Century. Despite its name, Killincarrig Castle is actually a ruined fortified manor house, originally built by the Anglo-Irish Walsh family in 1638. It is described in the Down Survey of 1657 as ‘the finest building in the half barony.’ It has strong connections to Wicklow’s war-torn past. These include the infamous Cromwellian conquest of 1649-50, during which The Lord Protector himself overnighted there on his way to the sieges of Wexford and Waterford in 1649. According to local lore, Cromwell was furious when he woke up the next morning to discover his horse had been stolen during the night. Prior to his visit, Killincarrig Castle was a stronghold of the Catholic Confederates during the Eleven Years War (1641-53), while rebels are said to have hidden there during the 1798 Rebellion. In our own more peaceful times, Castle Villas enjoys a highly convenient location just a few steps from the heart of Killincarrig village, with its popular local pub and a convenience store. Positioned on the outskirts of Greystones, the village is within walking distance (four minutes’ drive) of the town’s bustling centre, which is home to a wide-ranging selection of shops, supermarkets, artisan cafes, restaurants, boutiques and other services. An excellent choice of local schools includes nearby Delgany National School, and Temple Carraig and St. David’s secondary schools in Greystones, while Charlesland Community Secondary School is just a short drive away. A wide variety of sports and leisure facilities in the vicinity caters for soccer, rugby, GAA, tennis and sailing, while Greystones Marina and the Shoreline Leisure Centre are both close by. There are a variety of options for commuting to Dublin, thanks to the close proximity of the N11 and Greystones DART station, while local bus routes include the 184 and the 84, both with stops nearby. The Aircoach from Greystones’ main street provides a direct link to Dublin airport. Greystones has twice been the winner of a LivCom Award (the International Awards for Liveable Communities), first in 2008 and most recently in December 2021 when it was one of five towns from around the globe to be shortlisted for this prestigious accolade.
