Full description:

Salville House is an elegant Period Home of outstanding beauty and original character, graceful yet distinctive resting on excess 4 acres of landscaped grounds.

A truly remarkable secluded property , in a private setting with part of the residence dating back to the 18th century when it was identified as 'Salville' on maps by Taylor & Skinner noted land surveyors who conducted a land survey of Ireland in 1777.

The main house was added in circa 1890 and exhibits an attractive & pleasantly modest facade of two stories over three bays rooted in a neo-Georgian tradition, enjoying a delightful mixture of formal & informal reception rooms, rich in differing period detail with a perfect balance of living and bedroom accommodation.

A wonderful atmosphere prevails throughout this house, having been beautifully maintained by its present owners over the years without compromising its integrity and inherent character. Rare to come to the market, unequalled in its uniqueness!

On entry the main hall links the principle rooms, drawing room and dining room with wonderful period detail, high ceilings, casement timber windows with working shutters. The hall then leads to inner hall with beautifully crafted stairwell, further on leads to working kitchen with timber beam ceiling and door to breakfast room, a study and bedroom complete the accommodation on this wing. To the left of the hall links to bathroom and informal living room along with kitchenette including internal stairwell and two bedrooms at first floor. The main stairwell leads to three further bedrooms with beautifull views over the garden, two with ensuite.

Externally this splendid country home retreat is set on 1.77 hectares (4 .3 acres) in a parkland setting including numerous mature trees, Beech, Oak, Ash and the remnants of an old ancient orchard. The formal lawns/ gardens immediately surrounding the house are quite idyllic and seamlessly link into the wider grounds and paddock which include what we believe is an old malting building and coach house which is quite extensive and offers serious potential for an architectural conversion to work life studio, gallery or residential use subject obviously to necessary planning.

Enjoying a tranquil setting in verdant countryside, it maximises on panoramic views from an elevated position looking down towards the River Slaney and Valley.

Location: Salville House lies just south a little over 2 km from the historic town of Enniscorthy within the back drop of the ballad famous Vinegar Hill and anchored by its 13th century castle which sits in in the heart of the town. The town provides good shopping along with a wide variety of leisure and sporting facilities from Gaelic games to fishing, rugby, hockey, local swimming pool and regattas on the River Slaney. Wexford town is some 20 km, Roslare Harbour lies just beyond with convenient access to the UK and the continent. Furthermore, the completion of the M11 in 2019 will provide motorway access directly from the town.

Brief History: The house has a long history with Enniscorthy Quaker community, and particularly the Sparrow family, having been purchased c. 1800 by Thomas Sparrow from the estate of his fellow Enniscorthy bank director Robert Woodcock. From c.1840 until the middle 20th century, the house was owned by the Preston family.
