If you fancy country-living with modern amenities, this Wexford house is on the market for €425,000
Have you ever wished you could escape to Ireland's sunny southeast? With its breathtaking views of both sea and countryside, not to mention its bustling towns and nightlife, Co Wexford seems to have it all. Throw in its rich Viking history, famous opera house, and kind, local people; it's an idyllic place to live.
If you and your family would like to call the Model County your home, have a look at this modern (yet cosy) house available to buy right now.
Hawthorn Lodge is a spacious, contemporary property near Gorey in Co Wexford. With an A-rated BER certificate, it's an ideal home for families who are sustainability-conscious.
The entrance lobby opens directly into the sitting room, which measures a roomy 4.60 metres x 8.50 metres at its widest point. It features wooden flooring, a feature wooden fire surround with a solid-fuel stove. The current owners have tastefully decorated this space with neutral tones; as well as three recliner sofas, narrow coffee table and floor-length drapes.
From here, pass through to a long hallway which grants access to the rest of the house. The kitchen-cum-dining room is truly the heart of the home, with its high ceilings and bright seating area making it a warm place for the family to meet.
It boasts a white tiled floor, painted kitchen units with wooden countertops and matching island, a Beko dishwasher, American-style fridge-freezer, a range cooker with five-ring gas hob, and separate larder. The kitchen also has direct garden access via wooden-framed, glass patio doors.
This glass (indeed, all the windows in the house) are triple-glazed and argon-filled, which means they are top of the range for insulation.
Elsewhere, there are three large double-bedrooms; one of which boasts a walk-in wardrobe. Two of these have modern ensuites, while the third has direct access to the main family bathroom.
What's more, estate agents at Sherry Fitzgerald O'Leary Kinsella say one of the bedrooms is so spacious it could be divided into two smaller rooms, if necessary.
Outside, there is a large garage which can double as a workshop. This could also be transformed into a granny flat or playroom should the new owners wish to do so.
On the other side of the property, a patio area is perfect for al fresco dining during the summer, while approximately an acre of land (including well-kept lawns) is ideal for children to play in. That being said, security gates may need to be installed for safety.
