Castlechurch is a spacious, light-filled four bedroomed family home facing Ballyhealy Norman Castle ( which is occasionally occupied) and the ruins of St John’s Church to the rear. Situated on almost an acre of land, divided by a flowing stream and footbridge this home offers many attractions both outside and inside. The house is not overlooked and the well tended mature garden provides outdoor sitting and eating areas. The rear garden has raised vegetable beds with a handwoven willow fedge, offering the enthusiastic gardener a great start.
Located on Ireland’s Ancient East tourist trail, Castlechurch is within minutes walk of the quiet and unspoiled Ballyhealy Beach where one can stroll for miles to Carne or Kilmore Quay. Tacumshin Slobs – a haven for bird watchers – and the White Hole for Fishing, are also within walking distance. The house is a mile from the village of Kilmore with the award-winning Mary Barry’s Seafood Bar and Restaurant, and just a short drive to the fishing port of Kilmore Quay with its pubs, restaurants and modern marina. Wexford town and Rosslare Harbour are about 15 minutes by car.
Built in 2000 the house extends to 1800 sq feet. Recognised by its signature turquoise door, you enter through a tiled porch area which acts as an ideal draught excluder.
The house is warm and welcoming with solid oak floors in the hallway, kitchen, dining and sun room contributing to the openness and through line of the property. There is a polished timber staircase to the dormer level.
To the left of the entrance hallway is the main living room with a wooden floor and large windows to the front and an additional window to the side which let in lots of natural light. There is an open fire with an attractive wooden fire surround.
To the right of the hallway is a large double bedroom with an ensuite, fitted with electric shower.
At the heart of the house is a wonderful Cook’s Kitchen – with French style storage units and solid Iroko work surfaces. Centre stage is a double range-style 6 burner dual fuel cooker. There is a walk-in pantry and separate tiled utility room to the rear, providing ample storage space. There is also a small downstairs WC, also tiled like utility room.
A practical and attractive solid fuel stove in the dining room area allows for making this space warm and cosy without having to heat the entire house.
The dining room opens onto a sun room which is a wonderful sun trap with views to the garden. Accessed by patio doors, it has the added advantage of not being overlooked.
Upstairs the main bedroom has a new ensuite bathroom with a fabulous shower. It also has a walk in wardrobe. There are two other double bedrooms on this level, one of which is shelved and now used as a study. The main spacious family bathroom, also on this level, offers both bath and shower.
