DescriptionSeeking offers in excess of €595,000.
Set in this most lovely part of south Wexford, this beautiful family home has come a long way since the original 1850s cottage built on the site. The cottage has been incorporated into what is now a modern, almost 240 sqm, detached home standing on a 0.74 acre site surrounded by rolling countryside and enjoying sea vistas.
The love the current owners feel for this lovely home and their vision for its future is evident with landscaped gardens and hidden pathways, secluded seating and patio areas, the addition of a detached shed/workroom, gravelled drive……… there is nothing that needs to be done with this property but to move in and start enjoying the peace and tranquillity of Tintern.
The ground floor has been designed to provide family friendly spaces with a large open-plan south facing kitchen/dining area leading to a small south-facing sunroom that overlooks the garden and beyond - right over Bannow Bay. Additionally there is a formal dining area, snug sitting/living room with open fire (part of the original cottage), and a working utility/kitchen area and family bathroom. The ground floor layout alone would mould itself to many family needs.
Upstairs are five bedrooms. The main bedroom has an ensuite, and the south-facing feature balcony overlooks the sunroom and drinks in the sea views. One of the bedrooms is currently in use as a “walk-through” wardrobe but that could be easily modified.
Living here, there is so much to enjoy locally. A seaside walk from St Kearns is 2 fields away, Tintern Abbey and the famous Colclough Gardens are 2 km away, and if you want to venture further afield, the ferry to Waterford at Ballyhack is 12 km away. On a practical level the well-serviced village of Wellingtonbridge is under 9 km and New Ross and Wexford towns about 25 km with the recently upgraded and modernised Poulfur NS is under 5km.
If you are looking for a place where the world stops and the pace completely slows, you should look at this lovely home in Tintern.
