DescriptionThis wonderful home was designed for raising a family and built for entertaining with great space, total privacy and endless possibilities. Perfectly located in an exclusive development by the water just North of Wicklow Town, here you feel like you're in the middle of the countryside but, in fact, everything you need is only minutes away. You approach through granite stone gateposts and sweep up the shrub-filled driveway past the detached garage to your first glimpse of the stunning views, out across Broad Lough and the Irish Sea to the East, Carrick Mountain to the West and the Sugar Loaf to the North. You're standing in the middle of 1.46 acres of landscaped and terraced gardens, amongst the tree tops with vistas in every direction, lawns, walking tracks and an orchard.
Summerfield is a beautiful home laid out over two floors and extending to over 3,700 sq. ft with an excellent balance of five bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception rooms and a huge playroom for the kids. There are so many wonderful touches to this home - from the granite doorsteps that came from Howth railway station to the three sets of French doors leading to the beautiful grounds and gardens, underfloor heating throughout and so much space.
Step through the large front door into an exceptionally large and bright hallway with terracotta tile flooring and solid timber staircase. To your right is a wonderful office with bespoke oak panelling and ahead an exceptional family kitchen diner. Four of the five bedrooms are on this level together with a large family room with Aga wood-burning stove and the airy garden room: you can see that this has been a much loved and cared for home. Now it's your turn.
The property is just five minutes from the N11 motorway and is close to six schools, sports clubs, the Murrough nature reserve and the great restaurants and lively bars of the vibrant Wicklow Town. The mainline train station only one kilometre away, the bus stop half that and you can get from this contemporary countryside oasis to Dublin in 40 minutes by car or bus and an hour by train.
Viewing is highly recommended.
