This period and well-preserved Georgian home was for a time the Church of Ireland Rectory in Wexford town. The original well of Spawell Road which was on the perimeter of the grounds and the well water was used for many years by the local community. The owners of the house who have lived here for the past 30 years commissioned a modern two storey rear extension by the Dublin firm of architects Peter and Mary Doyle. This involved opening up the back of the building to the light and sun and then the building of an open plan kitchen/conservatory which symbiotically links the interior with the exterior. The large south facing back garden which used to be accessed through a rear pantry door now has immediate opening on to the patio/garden through the conservatory. The garden has been revamped over the last 30 years and has a profusion of flowers and shrubs as well as summer vegetables and apple and fruit trees. With a family room, laundry room and a bathroom also at this level, the owners say they spend most of their time here and can watch the dailychanges in the garden and sky. The formal sitting room, sunroom and study on the next level are much used as well. The house is well set back from the road and although located in the town has a quiet country ambience. The owners really enjoy the close proximity of the house to the local Cinema, Shops, Train and Bus Stations which are a 7-minute walk away.
