This is a sought after area at the gateway to the "Garden County" adjoining Powerscourt Estate and waterfall, 7km from picturesque Enniskerry village, and some 30 km from Dublin South City, c.50 minutes to Dublin Airport.
Containing a variety of flowering shrubs, specimen trees, orchard section and a kitchen-garden, there are charming traditional well-stocked and maintained old-world cottage gardens around the house; and the permanent pasture grassland is in good heart and well fenced, with road frontage and adjoining sheds and field for a total area of c. 13.3 acres / 5.4 ha.
Enniskerry village has local neighbourhood shops, friendly inns, and relaxing restaurants and cafés; churches; and two primary schools (a third is located in nearby Curtlestown). One of Europe's top garden attractions at Powerscourt is enhanced by the Pavilion retail experience, and the waterfall is the highest in these islands.
This is a wonderful area in which to rear a family, or for the active retired - country pursuits such as pony-trekking, hill-walking in the hills and valleys / state forests, fishing (by arrangement) for trout in the Dargle River; sailing or sea-fishing from the safe East Coast harbours; golf at championship courses such as local Powerscourt, Woodbrook, or Druids Glen; and a choice of athletic sports. Connectivity is great; easy driving distance to Sandyford, and Dundrum Town Centre; equally so to Cherrywood LUAS; and with the N11 / M11 / M50 corridor nearby as a commuting option, Bray Dart Station is another, and there are feeder and citybound buses from Enniskerry village.
Gardens of approximately 0.73 acre surround the house; a glory of colour with specimen trees, featuring hewn Wicklow granite steps and seats from which to admire the many flowering shrubs and bushes; walk through herbaceous borders and an orchard section; a paved suntrap patio terrace and gravelled parking behind vehicular gates, plus further parking by the garage which measures c. 6.3m x 2.8m and has a WC / WHB. The land comprises approximately 12.6 acres in grass.
The farmyard lends good access to a useful range of farm buildings comprising a double-bay 6-span hay-barn with concrete floor and part silo-walls, together with lean-to's on both sides; a modern steel-frame apex-roofed sheep-shed with shelter-sheeting; sheep-handling pens, dip, and crush-chute; machinery shed; and a range of older stone- and concrete-walled sheds.
