Ireland produces top horses again and again. Rather than having to import them, why don’t you just move to the country? Then you can have your pick of the horses there. Sounds like a dream to me! Here’s this property’s description:
A lovely period home which over the course of the last 200 years has served many purposes including a Rector’s residence and a location for Sunday School. The current owners, while retaining all the period charms, have converted and extended the property into a spacious and comfortable 5-bedroom home.
Externally, the house has an attractive red brick façade and is finished with a blue slate roof and timber sash windows.
Internally, an attractive entrance hall leads to two well-proportioned sitting rooms with dual aspect, while to the rear of the ground floor the large kitchen/diner leads to the sunroom, taking full advantage over the views of the private garden. The remaining accommodation on the ground floor includes a utility with storage and bathroom.
At first floor level, there are five generous bedrooms and a family bathroom with the master bedroom having an en suite. Three of these bedrooms have dual aspect, all are bright and each room has a unique view over the manicured gardens, which are enclosed by the surrounding mature trees.
This residence is maintained to the highest standards, offers generous, bright, and comfortable living accommodation throughout and is a truly wonderful, pleasant family home.
Gardens & Grounds
The house sits in the centre of the farm and towards the road frontage on a particularly attractive site fully enclosed by mature Beech hedging and with the further benefit of specimen Horse Chestnut, Beech and Ash trees to the rear. The property’s south facing rear has allowed the current owners to create attractive gardens.
Farmyard & Outbuildings
The farmyard and sheds are laid out in two distinct divisions, the first of which is located close to the house and consists of a 3-link hay shed of portal steel frame construction and with a corrugated roof. The walls of the shed are concrete block to a height of about 6 feet and there is a single bay lean to on one side. It is accessed by a sliding door and has a concrete floor, a single link loft and includes four quality loose boxes. This is an excellent shed and has a power supply.
The rear shed is located close to the (Wexford) Sand Arena and is of much more recent construction of an exemplary standard. It has a portal steel frame construction and is finished with non-drip sheeting. The walls are of concrete block construction and about 6 feet high. There are large sliding doors at either end allowing easy access and has the added benefit of a large hardcore area to the front and rear and brown water storage tank. It contains seven loose boxes including one foaling box, has a high-quality tack room and is connected to mains water and electricity. This is an exceptional shed with good capacity and could easily be used for many purposes.
Beside this, is the sand arena, which has separate access from the road, as well as being situated to give easy access to all of the turnout paddocks and grazing fields.
The land is laid out in five main divisions and is of exceptional quality. It is level in nature and has an abundance of mature hedgerows heavily populated with specimen Ash and Beech trees. Each paddock has piped water, is well fenced and the lands enjoy exceptional road frontage with over 300m along the public road.
This is a gorgeous, mature and well-minded small farm and while suitable for any agricultural purpose, it has all the features that make it a particularly suitable for livestock farming.
