For half-hearted hikers who like a big reward for very little effort - Kindlestown Hill in Delgany, Co Wicklow, offers a tempting walk.

The hill is cloaked in a Coillte-managed forest, and there's a public trail around the edge. It's only 500 metres long, flat and easy enough for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and at the end of the trail is a seating area - helpful for those who need to sit down after walking for a full half a kilometre - with views of the coast from Bray Head to Wicklow Head.

Number 3 Kindlestown Hill is about a kilometre due south of the entrance to the trail, and if you're too lazy to manage that, you can always drive up.

And for those who prefer a good walk spoiled, Number 3 is also handy for Delgany Golf Club, which is about two kilometres away to the south.

Number 3 is a large, two-storey detached house on an acre of quite secluded grounds. It's at the end of a long driveway, behind electric gates, and the site is bordered by maturing trees. The gardens have a wraparound patio and a water feature.

Inside the porticoed front door there's a tile-floored entrance hall with the reception rooms laid out symmetrically around it.

The main reception room is a drawing room to the left, with a fireplace and double doors leading into a dining room at the back of the house, where there's another fireplace and French doors giving onto the garden.

The dining room opens into an eat-in kitchen, and the final reception room is a living room at the front.

The first floor has four bedrooms (three en-suite), giving a total floor area of 2,605 sq ft.

Also on the grounds there's a detached garage with a loft for use as a home office or studio.

The agent is Sherry FitzGerald Greystones (01) 287 4005 and the price is €895,000.
