Wonderful 3 Bedroom detached bungalow on a prominent corner of St. John’s Road in the leafy heart of Wexford Town.
Originally built in 1929, this has been a one family home since the fifties. Along the way it was a Bord Failte B&B then in Alastair Sawday’s Special Places to stay and is still up on Airbnb. All because of its great location close to all Wexford Town has to offer.
The detached house with gardens on three sides means that you have the best of both worlds in.
It even comes with a postern gate giving separate access to the back patio, poly tunnel and Kitchen door.
There is also a heated modern garage which has been subdivided for laundry, storage and potting-on.
The energy rating is deceptive and merely reflects the age of the property as the current owners have done much to enhance it.
There are two Stanley stoves in the house plus the amazing Kachelofen in the sitting room which some might recognise from Austrian Ski Resorts!
It is a clay oven which radiates heat and is so efficient it only needs cleaning out every 6 months or so.
All the windows are double-glazed (either in 2000 or 2009) and the attic is very well stacked with insulation.
There are also Solar panels on the roof for hot water and a 500 litre tank to go with them.
The boiler has a new burner and pump and the heating is zoned within the house, including the OFCH underfloor heating in the main kitchen and electric UFH in the largest bathroom.
The house itself is very much in the style of John’s Road with the half pebble dash, half render look and the fine detailing of the fascias.
The pretty front garden has a great history of organic cultivation.
Originally a three bedroom bungalow, this was extended to the rear in 2000 adding a kitchen and another ensuite bedroom.
The original bedrooms were reconfigured with ensuites as befits its B&B status.
The Sitting room has the Kachelofen and the door to the two storey extension, a lovely west facing bay window to the front and a side window looking townward.
Upstairs in the lovely modern extension is the ensuite bedroom and downstairs is the kitchen/dining room.
The bedroom has a large window with wonderful views over the town and even as far as the harbour and the Raven Forest, I kid you not!
This side of the house has its own modern double glazed door and its own gate to the street.
Local resident’s parking is only €10 p.a.
All in all, this is a fabulous opportunity to obtain a wonderful house on the most sought after road in Wexford Town.
