Spread your wings in Newcastle for €795k
King's Hall €795k
If you've always wanted to learn to fly, you could do worse than set up a base near Newcastle Aerodrome, beside the old railway station in Newcastle, Co Wicklow. You can have an hour's lesson in a light aircraft there for €185, or spend half an hour in a microlight for €70.
King's Hall is a daintily-proportioned dormer bungalow in Newcastle Upper, about three kilometres from the aerodrome.
And if you prefer to travel on the ground, you'll only have to drive for three minutes or so from King's Hall to get going in the Dublin direction up the N11; coming home will be even faster.
Built in the early 2000s, King's Hall is quite a bit bigger than it might look from the front. It's 2,196 sq ft in size, with three bedrooms - or four at a pinch.
The bedrooms are upstairs at dormer level, and one has an en-suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe.
Downstairs there are three reception rooms - hence the option of an extra bedroom if the need arises.
The first is a bay-windowed living room with a marble fireplace and open fire. There are French doors leading from there to the dining room, which itself gives onto the back garden.
Finally, there's a family room with yet more French doors to the garden.
The kitchen measures roughly 27ft by 14ft and has granite countertops and a breakfast bar. At one end is a breakfast area with a bay window and French doors to a terrace in the side garden.
King's Hall is on 1.8 acres of landscaped gardens, with extensive lawns dotted with shrubs and trees, and a little blue summerhouse.
