The views from The Pink House, built in 2001, are as sweepingly coastal as you can get in the southeast. It’s said that the phrase “by hook or by crook” originated in this part of the world but, that aside, The Pink House has especially fine views across to Hook Head and the Crook Peninsula, as well as Duncannon harbour and bay.

The vendors built The Pink House after relocating to Duncannon. A labour of love, they’ve enjoyed living there but, measuring a large 243sq m (2615sq ft), the time has come to downsize. An integrated garage with mezzanine accommodation – used in its time as a study/playroom – adds a further 96sq m (1,033sq ft). Both vendors are keen gardeners and a new owner will reap the benefit of flourishing plant and shrub life in the elevated 0.76 acre site of well-kept land attaching to The Pink House. There is also a storehouse and greenhouse.

Agent PN O’Gorman is asking €550,000. Duncannon village is a popular holiday destination just two miles from Dunbrody, 15 minutes by ferry from Waterford city and 20 minutes by car to Wexford town.

There are views everywhere you go in The Pink House, all a joy to behold and making every room special in its particular way. The double-height entrance hall has a gallery-effect staircase and landing hall with eye-catching black-and-white marble tiles. The ground floor drawing room, which has a white marble fireplace and maple floor, has a wide bay window making the most of horizons. The separate dining room has another maple floor and, nicely flowing, has doors leading to a conservatory that in turn leads, through double glass doors, to the gardens. On this ground floor, too, there is a study with the comfort of a solid-fuel stove and a kitchen with maple fitted units leading to a south-facing patio. A utility room is extensively fitted and roomy, the family bathroom on this ground floor has a jacuzzi and sauna.

All four bedrooms, as well as sweeping views, have en-suite shower rooms and built-in wardrobes. A reading alcove has built-in bookcases and there is a decent-sized linen cupboard.

An option exists to purchase an additional 3.33 acres.
