This property is situated in the Townsland of Colestown which is part of the Forth Mountain area which is one of Wexford’s most sought after and desirable locations for the simple reasons that it is just 3.5 miles from Wexford town centre, approximately 1 mile from the R733 Wexford/Duncannon route leading to the Ballyhack car ferry to Waterford, within minutes of the N11 and N25 National road network, a choice of riding stables in the area at Shelmalier Riding Stables and Kingsford Equestrian Centre, picturesque location with 2000 acres of forestry lands with numerous walking trails and trekking routes, stunning views of South Wexford, its coastline including Wexford Harbour, The Raven Point, The Saltee Islands, Tuskar Rock and the flora amongst the trees and the rock outcrops including heather, heath and furze giving off purple and gold colours in the Autumn.
This dwelling which was originally built in the late 70s was beautifully extended around 2008 with an imaginative and classic architectural design which cleverly combines the old with the new giving real character and allowing natural light and sunshine to pour through. The ground floor comes with extra ceiling height of 9’ 6” which makes it more spacious and airy and it is a real family home to be enjoyed to the full. The accommodation is divided into 2 separate units with the original 3 bed bungalow unit having a floor area of 1,912 sq. ft. and the adjoining 2 bed granny flat, over 2 floors has a floor area of 1,041 sq. ft.
The Main House has a feature entrance porch with double doors and a high pitched glass panel over and off the inner hall to the right is a cosy living room with an inset stove. The hall leads onto a much used family room also with inset stove and has double doors out onto a sunny decking area which surrounds the rear of the house. You then enter the kitchen/dining which is the real showpiece of the home and located to the rear of the property taking full advantage of the sunny southerly aspect. The kitchen/dining is featured with high vaulted ceiling, well fitted kitchen units and is flooded with natural light and sunshine and has double doors onto an elevated sunny deck overlooking the rear garden where you can sit with family, relax and enjoy the sound of nature. There is a very useful utility room off the kitchen with its own door onto a paved patio and garden access via a pergola. Further down the hall is a beautifully tiled bathroom with a large shower area (wetroom style) and has a heated towel rail.
There are 3 excellent bedrooms, 2 of which are ensuite and both with fitted wardrobes. A stairwell with good underneath storage takes you up to 2 very useful attic rooms with velux windows and there is a shower room off one of the rooms.
Granny Flat: This unit which adjoins the main dwelling can provide independent living for a family member or would be ideal for a larger family situation offering bright spacious living. The flat can be entered from the front garden through double doors or from a single door off the rear patio.
