With seven bedrooms, walls made from beautiful local stone and plenty of period detail, this house needs a little modernisation but has no shortage of character.


Built in around 1810 and sitting on 82 acres of land, Stokestown House is an impressive Georgian property. Close to the town of New Ross, it sits beside the River Barrow Estuary, with the estate’s land edging the water.

The house itself is generously sized, with well-proportioned rooms. There is a courtyard to the rear with stone stables and storage areas that have the potential to be converted.

You enter the house on the ground floor into a large hallway. There are four main reception rooms on this floor, the drawing room, dining room, family room, and a further sitting room, each with decorative plasterwork, original mahogany doors, deep skirting boards and wide plank wooden floors. Large windows also ensure each space is bright.

A new owner would probably seek to modernise the kitchen, however it is a well-sized room, and has an Aga cooker with exposed brick set behind, a traditional country style that would be the heart of this home. There is also a utility room and a number of storage spaces on this level.

Upstairs, there are seven bedrooms, two of which have ensuites. All are large with beautiful views over the surrounding land and forests.

Outside, the land has been divided into a number of uses. There is a garden to the rear of the house, with lawn and mature shrubs, while around 35 acres of the land has been planted as forest and mature woodland. There is also extensive farmland, used for both grass and barley at present.

Wexford home for sale

The house is located less than 10 minutes’ drive from New Ross, and around half an hour from both Wexford town and Waterford city, making it within easy access of the best of the south east. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this house.
