Island House, Carleysbridge, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford

Address: Island House, Carleysbridge, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford

Agent: Paula Treacy Estates

In 1.87 acres of gardens with the River Urrin flowing by, this two-storey, 162.5sq m (1,750sq ft) house was built in the late 1930s. It is light-filled, with dual aspect in most rooms. There are three reception rooms with wooden floors, high ceilings and decorative plasterwork, the kitchen has oak units, a Belfast sink and Stanley range. A utility and wc are also on the ground floor. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom. The garden has mature trees and shrubs, a deck by the house and a garage. The house is a mile from Enniscorthy town. BER:F

Plus: Thoughtfully designed interior with wide-plank wooden and terracotta tiled floors. And a river running by.

Minus: There’s a lofty hedge that probably takes some tackling and the Pvc windows detract from the period.
