Description

Exceptional architecturally designed residence set in the most idyllic parkland setting and beautiful river garden on the banks of the Avonmore River.

The Stones is a most impressive, meticulously designed home in the exclusive location of Annamoe. This unique house, which sits on an elevated site, was designed by Duncan Stewart and was built to a very high specification ten years ago. It is set in a most attractive landscape with extensive river frontage. The property is approached through electric gates and meanders up a sweeping avenue. The house is designed with a mix of stone, wood cladding, render, glass and Blue Bangor slates. It sits naturally and blends seamlessly into the surrounding countryside. The use of large windows maximises the light and brings the outdoors in. All the principal rooms have great proportions and flow very well throughout, which is ideal for both entertaining and family living. The large kitchen with dining area takes in breath-taking views over the Annamoe valley and the surrounding land, which is enhanced by the large bay windows. The generous light filled dining room also leads on to the sunny outdoor terrace and gardens. The spacious drawing room has dual aspect windows which are flooded with light. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a wonderful master bedroom and bathroom also with doors to the gardens.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, three of which are

en-suite and have balconies all of which maximise the breath-taking rolling countryside.

It is obvious that the spectacular grounds, gardens, woodland and river are all part and parcel of what makes The Stones so special. The freshwater swimming pond with water flowing from the Avonmore River was created with both nature and entertainment in mind. The grassy banks of the river, together with a wonderful wildflower woodland and water garden are a haven for wildlife. Both the kitchen and vegetable gardens around the house and the sunny terrace contain a variety of flowering shrubs and fruit trees. Just off the terrace is a fantastic indoor and self-contained pizza oven, BBQ and kitchen which is a perfect place to entertain. Sweeping lawns lead down to the recently planted orchard and paddocks. Numerous trees have been planted throughout the grounds. There is the added benefit of both a large garage and outdoor office. All this makes The Stones a most fantastic family home in a peaceful and tranquil setting in the heart of the Wicklow countryside.

The County of Wicklow is known as the 'Garden of Ireland', a name earned for its picturesque landscape, wonderful coastline, mountains, rivers and lakes.

Roundwood, Laragh and Annamoe are picturesque villages, situated in the valley of Glendalough and the heart of the Wicklow Mountain National Park, surrounded by domed granite mountains, heather clad moorlands, wooded slopes, tranquil lakes and gushing streams. Glendalough is less than a mile from Laragh and is the historical heartland of the entire upland area.

Laragh and Roundwood villages, have much to offer with fine food shops, restaurants, tea rooms, coffee shops and an hotel.

From the M50/N11 proceed south and take the exit marked Roundwood (R755) after the Topaz garage in Kilmacanogue. Proceed through the town of Roundwood following the signs for Glendalough. Continue for 4.6km and the entrance to the property is the last gate on your left before the bridge in Annamoe.
