A choice of four properties on the market in Co Wicklow.
2 Milton Villas, Wicklow Town
€450k Sherry FitzGerald Catherine O’Reilly, (0404) 66466
Milton Villas is a cul-de-sac just off Church Hill in Wicklow. It's across the road from the landmark Saint Livinius church, with its copper cupola. The terrace is marked on the second-edition OS map, and has changed little since then. Number 2, for instance, has its original doors, floors and ground-floor sash windows. The two reception rooms on the ground floor - drawing room and dining room - are open-plan, connected by an archway, with a marble fireplace and a window seat in the bay. The kitchen is at the back and there are three bedrooms upstairs. It's 1,292 sq ft and has a gravel back garden and a front lawn.
5A Killadreenan, N’townmountkennedy
€450k Lambert McCormack, (086) 395 1167
There's a bus stop across the street from 5A Killadreenan, where the No 133 bus - or possibly three of them at a time - will stop for you and take you all the way to Dublin airport. Number 5A is a detached bungalow facing west onto the road south of Newtownmountkennedy, meaning that if you drive north from the house you'll reach the N11 in three minutes. It's on just under a quarter (0.23) of an acre with lawns and an east-facing patio. Inside, it's 1,302 sq ft with four bedrooms and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and separate shower. By way of receptions there's a living room with a Jotul stove and a dual-aspect kitchen-diner.
Ferndale, Paulbeg, Shillelagh
€230k Kinsella Estates, (053) 942 1718
Originally known as 'Paulbeg Cottage', Ferndale is said to have been built in the 19th century as part of the nearby Coollattin Park estate. It's on just over half an acre, well tended, with some lovely old trees, and has a long front lawn with rose beds and flowering shrubs. Inside there are four upstairs bedrooms, one described as a maid's room. The ground floor has a kitchen with a tiled floor and a range, along with a separate pantry and scullery. There's also a living room with a limestone fireplace, and a sitting room with a cast-iron one.
Parkview, Baltinglass Rd, Blessington
€995k Sherry FitzGerald O’Reilly, (045) 866 466
Although it looks older, Parkview on the outskirts of Blessington was built only in 2001. It has acquired a complicated set of lives in its history, having had a partly commercial identity in the past. It now consists of one main dwelling house together with five apartments, all laid out on three floors. The main house has a living room, family room, kitchen and sunroom at entrance level, with three en suite bedrooms upstairs. Also on the first floor is a self-contained unit with an en suite bedroom, a living room and kitchen. The basement has three apartments - all one-beds - along with a studio and garage. The other two apartments, both two-beds, are at street level.
