Wingfield House is a unique Architect designed Residence standing on c. 11 acres with outstanding 180 degrees sea views.

In addition there are 5 double bedrooms (all ensuite), a Bathroom, Utility and Laundry Room. Set behind electric entrance gates, the property is accessed via a private avenue with the land on both sides leading to the house. The house itself is tucked away in a mature and very private setting. While the house and gardens are nicely sheltered, the miles of sea and coastal views cannot be overstated and really are breathtaking! The residence combines attractive reception rooms with a comfortable open plan kitchen/living area, opening onto sun drenched balconies from which to enjoy the views. This wonderful home has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard with attractive marble fireplaces, oil fired Aga, many original period features, window shutters and classical plaster cornicing. There are mature private gardens around the house with a range of stone outbuildings, suitable for conversion if more space is required (subj to pp).

There are a choice of good primary and secondary schools and active sports clubs including tennis, hockey, polo, sailing, rugby etc. Wicklow Town boasts an excellent choice of eateries all within easy reach and the ever popular Hunters Hotel is closeby in Rathnew.
