Full description:

A delightful period property enjoying immense charm and character with enchanting secluded rear garden and lofted coach house, c.1800, set in a historic town centre just literally a minutes' walk from the local train station, swimming pool/ leisure centre and Enniscorthy town centre.

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.

Impressive accommodation comprises entrance hall, two reception rooms; the main drawing room features open fireplace with tiled surround, kitchen/dining room with fitted kitchen and feature aga cooker, window overlooking the gardens, and wc.
On the first floor accommodation comprises three double bedrooms; master bedroom features open fireplace with cast iron surround, wc, bathroom on this level features wc, whb and bath.
The second floor accommodates two further double bedrooms one with sink and fitted wardrobe.
Externally the property is set back from the streetscape with forecourt to front providing ample parking. There are a number of useful stone outhouses, with some imagination provides an excellent opportunity to convert to possible, mews, studio, courtyard cottage, the possibilities are endless! Further outbuilding to the rear which we believe was originally a double stable.
