Formerly a country hotel, Knockrobin House has been completely refurbished into a private family home currently on the market at the significantly reduced price of €1,975,000.
The house is 465sqm in size, and incorporates a pantry, several bathrooms, study with wooden fireplace, an office, reception hall, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, and kitchen with oak wall and floor cupboards, island counter, integrated appliances, and butler's lift to the dining room above.
There are also five large en suite bedrooms, a wine cellar, a separate guest studio apartment (with kitchen, bedroom and shower room), double garage, store room and dog pens.
Knockrobin House is accessed through electronic cast iron gates and up a tree-lined avenue. The gardens stretch over seven acres and have wide lawns with tall specimen trees for extra shelter and privacy. There are two paddocks for animals, as well as a yard with storage facilities.
The area surrounding Knockrobin is popular with those who are fond of outdoor pursuits. There is hunting locally and also hill-walking nearby in the Wicklow Mountains. Several golf courses are also nearby.
What's more, the east coast with its sandy beaches, sailing clubs and harbours is a 10 minute drive.
Wicklow Town offers a choice of shops, primary and secondary schools, shopping centres, restaurants and cinemas. Dublin city is a short spin on the N11, as is the airport and all other main routes by way of the M50. A rail service to the city centre is also available.
