Just three minutes from the centre of Enniscorthy, but in a beautiful world of its own, Clonhaston Manor was built as a residence for the Earl of Portsmouth in the late 18th Century. Extended and updated since then, this idyllic spot is now a comfortable five bedroomed home, overlooking some glorious grounds, sheltered by mature woodlands. Originally a dairy farm, the land has been carefully shaped and maintained. The walled garden entrusts complete immersion in the surrounding nature and catches the basking sun which the sunny southeast provides. The majority of the original living quarters has been lovingly restored and renovated by the present owners, thus creating a wonderful home that has been cherished by the family for over 30 years. A bright and welcoming home, with graceful proportions throughout, you will find space to entertain, places to work and ample family accommodation to relax. History is elegantly layered, as the earliest parts of the house, dating from 1763, meet open and inviting spaces renovated over the 30 years, all seamlessly incorporated. These are all held together by the timeless classical principals of Georgian architecture. CLONHASTON MANOR Once a focal point of the Portsmouth Estate, Clonhaston Manor has been exquisitely maintained and renovated in certain sections, keeping with the original design. The entrance hall is wide and welcoming, aristocratic in design. It s three storey design gives a bright and airy ground floor in which a stunning entrance hall introduces you to the sitting room and dining room. The sitting room to the right of the property has a welcoming fireplace, and the immediate sense of warmness and charm exuded from the room extends throughout the Manor thanks to the thick walls, deeply recessed sash windows, ceiling coving and architraves at ground level, and gently sloping ceilings above. The basement level is accessed via the back entrance through the splendid stone paved courtyard. The spacious kitchen connects to the food store which opens onto the hallway, connecting to the library, office, and spare bedroom. Upstairs, there is a very elegant gallery landing connecting you four bedrooms, including the master suite. The master bedroom, spacious and bright, is found in the right wing of the manor. An extensive dressing room and ensuite compliments the master bedroom. In all, Clonhaston Manor is rich with all the atmosphere you could imagine from a classic Georgian residence and is waiting for the next chapter in its long and charming history.
