Description

Architect designed house in an idyllic setting with spectacular views.

Wingfield House has some of the most spectacular views in Ireland. It is positioned overlooking the sea, where the view stretches from Howth to Arklow.

This is an architecturally designed house, an adaptation of an original farm house which was extended and refurbished to simultaneously take advantage of the private, secluded location, and to capture the breath taking scenic views. It was designed by Padraig Smith Partnership Architects, and every detail was thought of in this property in its design and layout.

Wingfield is entered through wrought iron electric gates, leading to a private avenue which passes through the land on both sides, and leads to the house in its spectacular setting. The light-filled property is nestled away, sheltered by mature trees and surrounded by lawns and gardens.

Wingfield House is located just outside Wicklow Town to the South, overlooking the sea and Wicklow Lighthouse and with the most spectacular views. Co. Wicklow, known as the Garden of Ireland, boasts unspoilt countryside with mountains, upland lakes, steep sided glacial valleys, forests, farmlands together with a rugged coastline and pristine beaches, and five minutes from Blue Flag Brittas Bay.

Wingfield is located within 3 km of Wicklow Town,          a bustling harbour town a mere 38km from Dublin City Centre and 62km from Dublin Airport. Ample boutique, restaurants and entertainment amenities are on offer between Wicklow and Dublin, including in southern Dublin suburbs (Bray, Dundrum, Dún Laoghaire, Blackrock)
