Nestled in a peaceful setting on the southerly side of Trooperstown Hill near the top of the beautiful Clara Valley, Roundhill Haven has sweeping views of heather covered mountains and wooded valleys. It is a haven of tranquillity set on approx. 3 acres of private gardens, paddocks, horse riding arena, large parking area and outbuildings including two guest cottages, a barn and stables. Roundhill Haven is an unspoilt oasis which feeds the soul of nature lovers, musicians, artists, writers, hill-walkers and those who simply want to get away from it all.
It is located on a quiet lane at the top of the only remaining part of the historic Dublin-Wexford coach road.
This park, which comprises of over 54,000 acres, is essentially the back garden. There are beautiful walkways which are accessed on foot from the house, which is a 10-15 minute drive from the world-renowned Glendalough and, in the other direction, the quiet and little-known woodland of Clara Vale forest and Avonmore River. Dublin City is within an hour’s drive away.
The main house, extending to approx. 421m2 / 4530sq.ft. with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, features a bright and enormously spacious reception room (The Great Hall) with a mezzanine in the lofted atrium roof and French doors opening to an al-fresco terrace. There is a wheelchair ramp leading from The Great Hall to the gardens. The kitchen adjoins the large reception room. On the opposite side is the central living area which is surrounded by a wraparound light-filled conservatory.
In the main house are three large bedrooms with the master bedroom and bathroom occupying the whole of the upper floor which fully avails of the stunning views.
There is a large wing which is a 4 bed self-contained unit with its own living room and open-plan kitchen/dining area. This configuration could be ideal for a B&B/AirBnB where one section could be used for the family and the other for guests.
The gardens have been lovingly landscaped on different levels in sympathy with the surrounding countryside. Various viewing platforms and decks have been designed to take in the breathtaking views. The gardens can be floodlit at night. Roundhill Haven has attracted visitors who take inspiration from this creative space - such as writers, artists and those who enjoy a holistic life-style.
Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland and is renowned for its picturesque countryside with woodlands, lakes and rivers. The Clara Valley is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful areas. The countryside is unspoilt, perfect for walkers and nature lovers and is a haven for wildlife. It is an ideal location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with beautiful landscapes, sandy beaches and world-class golf clubs.
The nearby villages of Roundwood, Laragh and Glendalough have interesting pubs, cafes, restaurants and hotels, as well as convenience stores. The renowned Glendalough World Heritage site is an area of outstanding natural beauty and spirituality; it features a 6th century lakeside monastery founded by St Kevin set in a deep mountain valley.
