Description

Wingfield House is a unique Architect designed Residence standing on c. 11 acres with outstanding 180° sea views. Overlooking the picturesque Wicklow lighthouse, one has glorious views over miles of coastline and Wales in the distance.
The original farmhouse has been tastefully remodelled and substantially extended and now boasts bright and spacious family accommodation with three reception rooms and a wonderful open plan Kitchen/Dining/Living space. In addition there are 5 double bedrooms (all ensuite), a Bathroom, Utility and Laundry Room.

Set behind electric entrance gates, the property is accessed via a private avenue with the land on both sides leading to the house. The house itself is tucked away in a mature and very private setting. While the house and gardens are nicely sheltered, the miles of sea and coastal views cannot be overstated and really are breathtaking!

The residence combines attractive reception rooms with a comfortable open plan kitchen/living area, opening onto sun drenched balconies from which to enjoy the views. This wonderful home has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard with attractive marble fireplaces, oil fired Aga, many original period features, window shutters and classical plaster cornicing. There are mature private gardens around the house with a range of stone outbuildings, suitable for conversion if more space is required (subj to pp).

Wingfield House is extremely well located only 2.5kms from Wicklow Town centre. This bustling Harbour Town, which is within walking distance, is steeped in history and offers a full range of cultural, sporting and leisure amenities to cater for all tastes. It has much to offer the busy family, with all main supermarkets represented in the Town together with many independent retail outlets and boutiques. There are a choice of good primary and secondary schools and active sports clubs including tennis, hockey, polo, sailing, rugby etc. Wicklow Town boasts an excellent choice of eateries all within easy reach and the ever popular Hunters Hotel is closeby in Rathnew. In addition, Dublin is a mere 38kms north along the M11. Alternatively, there are a variety of public transport options servicing the Capital from the town.

Wicklow is known as The Garden of Ireland for good reason! Renowned for its natural beauty with the Wicklow hills and many areas of attractive woodland, ideal for hiking. There are wonderful beaches along this stretch of coastline, while the famous golden strand at Brittas Bay is only 3km south of Wingfield House. The golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with a choice of championship golf courses - Blainroe, The European Club and Wicklow Golf Club all within easy reach.

This is indeed a rare opportunity to acquire a stylish property with privacy and seclusion and outstanding coastal views. It is conveniently located less than five minutes drive from the main M11 Dublin/Rosslare route. Coastal properties such as Wingfield House are increasingly difficult to find and are always sought after in the market. It is our belief that this is the ultimate home for the busy family with lots of space and privacy, ‘peace and quiet’ in abundance and the sea views will simply take your breath away!
