Annacrevy Schoolhouse, Annacrevy, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow

€745,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty 119 sqm approx

Description

Capturing panoramic views from the Great Sugarloaf around to Maulin Mountain from the six windows of the original airy schoolroom now providing the most elegant living room / dining room imaginable, the very first impression upon entering the “Old Schoolhouse” road-level original schoolroom is “wow”. Warmed by an open fire and a wood – burning stove, this dual-height space features a polished timber floor and exposed rafter ceiling; plus a surprise trapdoor which permits ship’s-ladder access to the garden level approached independently from a quarry-tiled terrace outside the kitchen/breakfast room.

There are three characterful bedrooms on the garden level, all with timber floor finishes and garden vistas; while close by are found useful out offices including a stable block fronted by a marvelous deck measuring about 10m x 6m ideal for entertaining.

Approached from the county road known locally as Walker’s Road, a gravelled parking area behind wooden gates set in a traditional stone wall and planted border, set the scene for the gently sloping woodland glade lawned gardens bordered by a stream. These feature countless specimen plants and shrubs, trees and plants among which keen observant gardeners will notice a group of Magnolias, Contorted Hazel, Rhododendrons, Camellias, Victoria plum trees, two very old original apple trees, Canadian Maple, lots of Silver Birch, two Eucalyptus trees, Acers, Mountain Rowan/ Ash, Beech and Copper Beech, Willow and Alder; with Swamp Cypress thriving close to the stream flowing by the bottom of the delightful gardens.

Enniskerry is a wonderful place to live, rear a family, or to contemplate active retirement. Right next to Powerscourt waterfall, the highest in these islands, and convenient to the village community of Enniskerry with its two primary schools, neighbourhood shops, cafés and welcoming inns, Annacrevy Schoolhouse is 30/40 minutes’ drive to Dublin airport, 40 minutes Dublin city, walking distance Crone Wood; and for the hill rambler one can be on top of Maulin in about 1 ½ hours, or crest Prince William’s Seat in 1 to 1 ½ hours bracing walk.

So convenient to Dublin city, right in the heart of the country, this former schoolhouse, later a place of worship until the 1980s for the local Church of Ireland community offers scope to take “as is”, or to explore the possibilities to extend through the out buildings’ footprint and create a home of flair and character. The original Altar rail is still available to be creatively used. We confidently recommend inspection.
