DescriptionDETACHED COUNTRY HOME SET ON 9.5 ACRES OF LAND
Rarely does an opportunity arise to purchase a modern property of circa 141sq.m (1,517sq.ft) set on approximately 9.5 acres of land. The setting is glorious and enjoys sea views, with the amenities of Wicklow Town and surrounding areas close by.
The house, of very individual design and layout, will appeal to many prospective purchasers. The views of Wicklow and Dublin Mountains across rolling countryside are magnificent. The mature, well maintained gardens surrounding the house are approximately 1.5 acres in size with a further 8 acres of grass lands to the rear.
The dormer property was built and designed by the present owners and later extended to create a sitting room with larch finished walls circa 28 sq.m. The use of beamed ceilings, a number of bay windows, rustic and red brick surrounds , ceramic tiled and wood throughout all combine to make this modern property ooze with character not normally associated with its era of construction. The split level television room accessed from the family diner /kitchen is a very attractive feature and will not fail to impress. Detached home office/study is circa 12 square meters. Sockets and lighting, high level of insulation and timber construction.
The kitchen is well fitted with hand painted units and the spacious utility gives access to the gardens, driveway and parking area. Three of the generously sized bedrooms are on the first floor and 1 on the ground floor.
The mostly elevated gardens are laid out mostly in lawn with mature shrubs, hardwood trees and raised flower beds. Also included in the sale is an octagonal shaped timber room, close to, but separate from the dwelling house with beautiful land and sea views. This building would make an ideal hobby room or storage area.
The amenities of Wicklow Town and Brittas Bay are a short drive from the property with the famous sandy beaches of Brittas Bay providing hours of leisurely walks and water sports. Wicklow Town offers a choice of supermarkets, retails stores, coffee shops and award winning restaurants ; educational facilities at all levels and a huge choice of sport and leisure outlets.
