The location is amazing; country surroundings yet so convenient to award winning Greystones and its new marina village and harbour; and 40 minutes' drive from Dublin International airport.
Greystones has a fine range of neighbourhood retail outlets as well as the major supermarket chains, friendly inns and welcoming restaurants/cafes all complementing a lifestyle enhanced by a choice of schools at primary and secondary levels.
Leisure amenities are first class with an active sailing club, tennis, GAA, football and rugby supported by a leisure centre and swimming pool. More leisurely pursuits include lawn bowling and a bridge convention centre; while north Co. Wicklow
is a golfer's mecca with Bray, Glen of the Downs, Charlesland close by; also championship courses at Greystones, Delgany, Powerscourt and world class Druids Glen. Equine pursuits are well catered for too, with bridle paths and forestry trekking
available (subject to licence/consents). Hill walkers can also enjoy woodland paths as well as the scenic cliff walk from Bray to Greystones.
If the scenic and surprisingly convenient location is stunning, so also is the sense of history and radition presented by this Period Georgian property which comes to the market after two generations of vendor family hands. Previously the house had
been occupied by the 14th Earl of Meath during the early years of his marriage before he succeeded to the title and moved to the adjacent Kilruddery House.
Templecarrig House stands on the brow of a hill approached by a sweeping avenue and parkland setting. It is a double fronted residence featuring bay windows on three elevations offering a true sense of light while capturing the panoramic views out to sea over Greystones, its harbour, and southeastwards towards Wicklow.
It is a six bedroomed family house of elegant proportion, with a fan light arched hallway opening to the three principal reception rooms, kitchen and a deep return level together with a ground floor modern apartment annex. A large cellar runs under the hall.
