The property

This characterful Tudor style house is situated close to the village of Aughrim, a spacious four-bedroom property, with intriguing features and two acres of gardens sitting right on the doorstep.

Perfect for families or a group of friends, the enchanting interior is thoughtfully pieced together, with a comfy lounge, and a grand dining area which boasts plenty of seating, should you wish to host a gathering, or even just settle down with refreshments to admire the stone-work and exposed beams surrounding you.

With a wonderful woodburning stove, the warm ambience will guide you room to room, a cosy way to start any evening after a busy afternoon.

Discover the country cottage kitchen with its breakfast table, pew seating, and wooden units, neighboured by a helpful utility area for convenience.

Lastly, the ground floor benefits from an office, and a cloakroom.

Following the stairs up to the next level, you will be amazed by the layout, beginning with the twin bedroom, which leads through to the super king-size room, effectively designed with a freestanding bath.

Alternatively, choose the king-size bedroom introducing a series of beams, and its own en-suite Jacuzzi style bathroom.

Two doubles equally promise a good night's sleep, with a family bathroom and shower finishing the beauty of Derrywater House.

If you can steer yourself away from the acres of land, Aughrim is well-placed in a scenic spot, near where the Ow and Derry Rivers meet, overlooked by woodland hills in South County Wicklow.

In this neat village, there are a number of unusual granite terraced houses throughout the setting.

Aughrim offers a wide variety of activities with Fishing at the National Angling Centre or various walks to enjoy the local views in their entirety.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of €200.

About the location

AUGHRIM, COUNTY WICKLOW

Avoca 14 miles; Glendalough 16.4 miles; Dublin 44.5 miles.

Located roughly an hour’s drive south of Dublin city, Aughrim is a beautiful village, recently an all-Ireland tidy towns winner, set where several mountain valleys meet. The valley of the River Ow has fantastic scenery, and spreads north-west of Aughrim for about 10 miles to the base of Lugnaquilla Mountain. It is definitely worth a visit, with a selection of local pubs and restaurants, and landmarks such as the Old Mill and the local Catholic and Church of Ireland churches. As many buildings were constructed from locally-quarried Wicklow granite, Aughrim is locally known as "The Granite City".

There is a good housekeeping bond of €200 which is payable on arrival.
