Surf and turf property in Wexford for €695k
'Seascapes', Co Wexford €695k
'Seascapes', at Kilmurray, Co Wexford, is a property with a variety of aspects to it.
Not only does it have the sea views suggested by its name, but it also has 13 acres of pasture land and stables.
It's a 'surf and turf' property with a few quirks thrown in.
For example, the approach to the house features over 30 mature copper beech, maple, sycamore, oak, silver birch and ash trees along the driveway.
On the 'turf' side, there is a stable yard and stabling for three horses, with two large fields and two smaller paddocks, all fenced.
On the 'surf' side, there are uninterrupted views of the nearby coastline.
The large modern house, with 3,443 sq ft of accommodation, was designed by local Pim Lane Architects to take advantage of the surrounding views.
This is achieved with the use of large windows, unusually angled, making triangles of light at key points throughout the property.
Family is also a strong theme with this house. There is a large hall and the sitting room has an open fire and beamed ceiling.
There is a designer family kitchen with a robust island and adjacent dining area looking out over the garden.
Special attention has also been paid to interior lighting in the kitchen.
There are four or five generous bedrooms and three bathrooms. One bedroom has a raised wooden platform area at one end, ideal for 'hanging out'.
For more fun and games, there is also a sunken trampoline and lifesize chessboard in the garden, and patio areas with flagged paving.
The property is five kilometres from the N11 and two kilometres north of Gorey town.
Seascapes is for sale for €695,000, and the agent is Sherry FitzGerald Myles Doyle in Arklow, (0402) 32367.
