South facing on Tara Hill, less than 10mins drive from bustling Gorey town, this 1970's architect-designed home with views over the Wexford coastline will take your breath away.
A perfect retreat if you want to just relax and chill - with easy hill walks right on your doorstep or a lazy stroll on the nearby beaches, only a 5mins drive.
An ideal location to base yourself as you unwind and explore the sunny south east.
Experience "a little piece of heaven".
The house is a 1970's open plan layout. The main reception area is a sunken 'conversation pit' or lounge area with picture windows overlooking coastal views. 2 double bedrooms (1 king, 1 Queen) and a shower room are off this area.
A multi fuel stove when lit is ample to heat this large open plan space that has 2 steps up to a dining area and kitchen.
There is a cosy 'den' off the kitchen with TV and stove. A full bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and electric shower is accessible off this room.
The 3rd bedroom is a single over double bunk bed that completes the accommodation.
Idyllic elevated country retreat with stunning views, and spacious gardens. Situated on a quiet lane yet only minutes from the busy market town of Gorey. Lose yourself in natural surroundings but indulge in the many restaurants and pubs Gorey and the area has to offer.
