To own a house by the sea is the dream of many, but to own 204ac of good land with a Georgian house and a modern farmyard located a few hundred yards from the seashore is surely an attractive prospect for any farmer.
Blackditch House and farm, situated on the edge of Newcastle village in Co Wicklow, is exactly such a property and is on the market by private treaty with a guide price of €3.75m or €18,400/ac.
Located just off the N11 beside Newcastle, the farm is a mixed tillage and grass holding with extensive farming facilities.
The house, a solid Georgian residence, is set in an enclosed and sheltered garden with many shrubs and mature trees.
Extending to 2,698 sq ft, the house maintains many of its original features such as marble fireplaces, decorative cornicing and sash windows. While in good condition at the moment, the house may need some refurbishment.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, drawing room, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room utility room and cloakroom. The upstairs has four good-sized bedrooms, two of which are ensuite.
There is additional accommodation in the courtyard that includes a groom's apartment with an entrance hall, open plan kitchen, sitting room, a bedroom and a bathroom.
