This Wexford estate with swimming pool, gym, tennis court and a gate lodge is on the market for €2.5 million


This Wexford estate with swimming pool, gym, tennis court and a gate lodge is on the market for €2.5 million

Not only is the house itself huge, with eight bedrooms, but it also has a gate lodge with three further bedrooms, and sits on over eight acres of land.

For anyone looking for mounds of space for a family to roam, they could do much worse than Alma House, a Georgian estate in Wexford that’s currently on the market.

The main house itself has three generous storeys and retains many of its period features, but it doesn’t stop there. A pool complex with a gym and sauna, a gate lodge with two bedrooms, a mews, several outbuildings, four garages, and eight and a half acres of grounds and gardens.

Wexford estate

You enter the main house into a large hallway which has a decorative tiled floor, particularly high ceilings and a decorative archway and cornicing. Off this space are four grand rooms. The drawing room has a marble fireplace and large sash windows, while opposite sits the library.

The dining room has wooden floors and a feature fireplace, while an office space provides a quiet place to work. Towards the back of the house is the kitchen, which has an Aga and granite worktops, as well as a pantry, utility room and boot room just off it.

A sun room acts as the link between the original house and the large pool complex to the side. The swimming pool is tiled with steps, while there is also a jacuzzi and sliding doors to rear, as well as a changing room, sauna and gym space.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms, all en-suite, and the main bedroom also has a walk-in wardrobe. The second floor has three further en-suite bedrooms and some storage rooms.

The gate lodge at the entrance to the estate has a kitchen, living room, and two bedrooms, while there is also a mews with four rooms that could be put to various uses.

Outside, the grounds are full of mature trees and planting, and there is also an enclosed garden and a tennis court, while a large fountain is visible from the pool complex. There are four garages which include an office space and a car wash.
