details

Six-bedroom period house on 4.88 acres

Woodview House is a handsome two-storey over basement Georgian home overlooking the Slaney valley at Ballingale, Ferns, Co Wexford.

Built in 1755 by the de Rinzy family of the nearby Clobemon Hall, Woodview House was burned to the ground in 1798. However in 1820, it was restored to its former glory, albeit with a Regency twist.

Bought by the current owners in 1998, Woodview House has been tastefully restored, retaining much of its period character and features such as corniced ceilings, door casings and original Georgian staircase.

The accommodation extends to 436sqm (4,693sq ft). The garden level consists of the main kitchen, living room, study, wine cellar and bathroom.

Moving up to the hall level, there is a reception hall, dining room, drawing room, kitchen and the first of six bedrooms.

The first floor return contains a family bathroom and garden room, while the first floor contains five bedrooms.

Nestled to the side of the house is a courtyard with outbuildings and a guest cottage. The 92sqm (990sq ft) cottage is a stone-built property with exposed walls and a slate roof. It includes a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The remainder of the courtyard contains large stores.

There is also a 2,000sq ft barn, insulated and fitted with central heating.

Woodview House stands on 4.88ac in all, with walled gardens, mature trees, sweeping lawns and a gently-sloping paddock to the front.
