Full description:

This fairytale neo-gothic Victorian mansion house dating from the early 1860's and designed by William Fogarty, comprises the principal wing and great hall of one of Co. Wicklow's historic houses, seat of the Darley-Millar family until the 1970's when, having been creatively subdivided into self-contained wings, this fine main section evolved as an entity in its own right on a plot of circa 3.3 acres. Approached by way of a tree lined avenue and cast iron gates, just off Herbert Road at the Kilcroney side of Bray within easy reach of DART and citybound bus services, and only a couple of gear - changes from the N 11 / M 11 / M50 corridor.

A sense of the rural infuses this marvelous family home, yet totally in touch with suburban amenity, (schools, leisure and retail), minutes from Avoca Handweavers at Glencormac, the picturesque village of Enniskerry, Powerscourt Demesne and gardens; so close to the "garden county's" best scenic amenities; and home for a period, while film-making at the nearby Ardmore Studios, to luminaries such as Sean Connery.

The light-filled rooms of this protected structure are generously proportioned with decorative plasterwork and high ceilings, many period features preserved. From the impressive grand reception hall to the intercommunicating formal reception rooms, dining room, kitchen wing, and family bedrooms; to the almost self-contained apartment ideal for live-in staff or extended family; to the totally charming grounds laid out in formal lawn and lush woodland, this is a captivating property well worthy of consideration by any discerning purchaser.

The grounds comprise almost 3.3 acres made up of formal lawns with gravel pathways, a good stand of mature shelter trees, and less formal ground cover, flowering shrubs and bushes especially around the southern perimeter where the boundary is towards the bottom of a sloping bank thus affording immense privacy.

We confidently recommend inspection.
