The property is located on the edge of Carnew, opposite the Primary School, Candy's Convenience Store and close to Carnew Community College on the R725 Shillelagh/Bunclody Road. It is within walking distance of Carnew’s shops, services & a full range of amenities. Carnew is a small town in South Wicklow noted for it's historic buildings such as Carnew Castle, All Saints Church and The Rectory. It has two primary schools, and the renowned Coláiste Bríd secondary school, all a short walk from the property. Carnew is c. 3km from Coolattin Golf Club, Tomnafinnogue Woods and Walks, half an hour from the coast and many of North Wexford’s finest beaches, 8km from Shillelagh, 16km from Gorey, 30km south of Arklow & 90km south of Dublin.
This fine Georgian residence is steeped in history and is a protected building due to its architectural and historical value to the town. Carnew was burnt down in the 1798 rebellion and was rebuilt together with The Rectory in the early 1800's by the Earl of Fitzwilliam from locally sourced slate and stone. The first recorded use of the old Rectory was as a fever hospital and after the famine it was then leased to Carnew Church of Ireland Parish as a Rectory. It now awaits a new owner and, when restored, will make a fine family home. The residence is structurally sound but in need of restoration throughout.
