Nestled in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains, not far from the Powerscourt Estate and Waterfall, Bahana Farmhouse is a traditional 18th-century home with panoramic views. 

A warm and comfortable family home, the property is a wonderful blend of old and new – maintaining all of its original charm while a considered extension modernises it for contemporary living. 

Thick walls keep the home cool in summer and warm in winter, while features like window shutters, exposed ceiling beams and low door frames hark back to its origins. The interior accommodation comprises a small entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, family/dining room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

The sitting room is a cosy and inviting space with a brick surround, deep Inglenook fireplace, wood-burning stove and exposed ceiling beams. Across the hall is the country-style kitchen where you’ll find a carved timber period-style fireplace with cast metal and tile inset. This room also has underfloor heating with wooden cabinetry providing ample storage space. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, undercounter washing machine, tumble dryer, a fridge freezer and a “Rangemaster Classic” cooker with double electric oven and five-plate gas hob. A rustic dining table and matching chairs sit in the centre of the room, waiting to welcome family and friends for dinner. 

A second, extended family room can be accessed via the kitchen with French doors leading out to the patio. Light floods in courtesy of several large windows overlooking the gardens. Beyond the sitting room is another hallway along with a well-appointed double bedroom and shower room. 

All other bedrooms can be found on the first floor – the master suite has been enhanced with the addition of a walk-in wardrobe – as well as the main family bathroom. 

Surrounded by nature in Glencree Valley, an area renowned for its natural beauty, Bahana Farmhouse is set on approximately 0.73 acres of well-stocked gardens with an array of flowering shrubbery, raised beds, specimen trees and hedging that provides excellent privacy and shelter. Current owners have enhanced the gardens with the addition of a large lawned area ideal for outdoor activities when the weather allows. 

Nature lovers, cyclists; and walkers/hikers are all well-catered to in the area with an abundance of local walkways and trails on your doorstep ranging from the Wicklow Way to Crone Woods, Djouce, Tonduff and Maulin Mountain loops. 

Removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, it’s only 7km from the picturesque village of Enniskerry where there is a wealth of amenities including a selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, churches, primary schools and two hotels. Transport routes include the 44 and 185 Dublin Bus service which connects to Bray DART station. The N11 is only a 10-minute drive away and offers good connectivity to Dublin, the airport, the southeast and beyond. 

The property also comes with the option to purchase a well-equipped farmyard and adjoining field (circa 10 acres) which offers good grassland grazing or may suit someone with equestrian interests.

Currently on the market for €945,000, viewings can be organised through Sherry FitzGerald Bray. In the meantime, take a tour of the beautiful Bahana Farmouse in our gallery below.
