Stable family home in Wicklow
Woodberry House €825k
Built in the 1960s, Woodberry House, near Coyne's Cross in Co Wicklow, has been growing little by little in the intervening years.
It now measures a substantial 3,229 sq ft, and that's all on one floor. It's now so rambling, in other words, that you could use a horse to get around it, so it's lucky that the property comes with stabling for six mounts.
Despite the size, there are only four bedrooms - all in one wing of the house. The rest of the space in the other, perpendicular wing, is given over to reception and living rooms, of which there are several.
There's a sitting room with a stone fireplace, linked by double doors to a drawing room with picture windows overlooking the Wicklow countryside.
French doors open from the drawing room to a conservatory, which itself gives onto a terrace outside.
In addition, there's a dining room, also linked to the conservatory and to a large, open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and family room that's 34ft long.
There's also a utility room off the kitchen, with garden access.
Three of the four bedrooms are en-suite, and the suite arrangements for the master bedroom consist of a vast, 31ft room running the full width of the house, with a shower area as well as a study or dressing area.
The house comes with four acres of land, consisting of gardens and paddocks, an all-weather arena, and a stable yard with six loose boxes, a tack room and a workshop.
It's six kilometres north of Ashford and not much above five minutes' drive from the N11, making it about an hour away from Dublin city centre.
