Annacrevy Schoolhouse, Annacrevy, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow

€745,000 - Asking Price Sale Agreed 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.

About the Area

Enniskerry is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding countryside as well as the magnificent Powerscourt grounds.  It features superb cafes and shops as well as a host of picture-postcard cottages and a charming village triangle. The clock tower in the centre of the village is also a very attractive feature. The Catholic Church circa 1843 by Patrick Byrne is one of the first gothic revival churches in Ireland. Lying in a beautiful glen of the Cookstown or Glencullen River, the wooded country around Enniskerry offers fine forest walks.

Stylebawn, Rocky Valley Drive, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow

€850,000 - Asking Price|4 Bedrooms, 354 sqm approx

Designed and built circa 40 years ago Stylebawn was a unique architect designed house, ahead of its time. Commanding panoramic views across the valley to Powerscourt estate and house, this unique residence set on landscaped gardens enjoys rural charm in touch with suburban amenity. Versatile accommodation with deep windows inviting the garden into the house, and vice versa, lends great scope for the expanding young family with plenty of space for adults to entertain at will. A sheltered parking spot gives way to dramatic granite steps to a sunken terrace and the hall door, in turn opening to a split-level reception hall joining the main living room with the open plan family/diner/eat-in kitchen (above which is a mezzanine gallery), in turn opening via wide glazed screen doors to an elevated deck.

There are four bedrooms off a lateral gallery corridor featuring indoor planters and floor-to ceiling glazed panels for a real sense of light and proportion; then upstairs in the roof zone are a series of spaces which offer anything from studio/den, to home office/library, to sauna and ultimate “man cave”!

The gardens are a truly essential element of Stylebawn’s appeal. Approached from the county road via a sweeping avenue skirted by established tree-planting of c. 39 years’ maturity one enters an almost glade-like parking area. From here, a set of cut-stone granite steps between plinth walls brings you down to the sunken terrace and the hall door, but to the left, another less formal flight, rustic sleeper-defined gravel terraces skirt a variety of younger trees, flowering shrubs, herbs and bushes screening a suntrap terrace outside Bedroom 2, and leading on downhill to the impressive main lawned garden “behind” the house; and to a hidden kitchen garden. It is worthwhile taking time to go for a little “ramble” around the garden before venturing back inside for another walk through the house.
