A charming period residence on just over one acre of mature & private gardens, in the centre of Wexford Town. Located beside The Bishops Palace in Wexford Town, opposite St. Peters College, St. Marys is within easy walking distance of Wexford Town Centre, Clonard Church, Wexford General Hospital, Department of Environment Offices and a host of all other amenities including primary & secondary schools. Built in the late 19th century, it was the original Bishops House in Wexford Town. It has a south facing aspect with a large bow to the east, with wonderful internal proportions. This splendid detached three-bay two storey residence was originally built in 1893. It retains many of its period features, sash windows, cut-granite sills, ornate cornicing, timber panelled shutters, etc. In total it offers c. 470 sq.m. / 5,059 sq.ft. of extensive accommodation. This includes a 2 bed apartment, which we understand was originally the servants quarters. This area could easily be re-integrated into the main house. Alternatively it could continue as an investment creating a rental income. St. Marys s set on just over one acre of exceptional gardens. It is planted with many mature Rhodendroms, numerous flowering shrubs, large trees and extensive lawns. Internally the rooms offer wonderful proportions with 3 main reception rooms and 5/6 bedrooms. Please note the residence is a protected structure and therefore BER Exempt. Since 1989 St. Marys was the home of the County Wexford School of Music. It has huge potential for a prestigious private house, perhaps an exclusive residential development in the grounds, medical centre, nursing home, offices, etc., etc., all subject to the necessary planning consent.
