Steeped in history and situated beside an early 6th century Christian settlement, (seen from the aerial photos) it was the home and place of business for a long number of years to two veterinary practitioners Mr Ringwood and later Mr Ronald King-hall which operated in the adjoining coach-houses and perhaps offers an opportunity for other potential business use or home / office conversion.
Then there are the gardens, totally secluded partially walled in extending to approximately half acre, an oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the town with an abundance of flowering shrubs, plants and large mature trees.
The property with its ivy clad façade and original character which according to National Inventory of Architectural Heritage "exhibits an informal architectural design representing an important element of the mid to late eighteenth century domestic architectural heritage of Enniscorthy" along with the coach house which is also listed on the NIAH site described as "a detached three-bay two storey coach house c.1800 with pair of square-headed carriageways to ground floor, having been well maintained the coach house presents an early aspect with the unassuming architectural attributes surviving in place together with most of the original fabric, thus making a pleasing impression on the character of the local setting".
The property has been subject to a number of alteration works in the mid to late twentieth century keeping the early character of the house both internally and externally.
Beyond the attractive façade of this semi-detached period home lies a most spacious interior.
