The property is situated in the Glencree Valley, in the townland of Aurora, with some of the best views in all of Wicklow. The house, nestled under the backdrop of Powerscourt Mountain, commands a magnificent view across the Glencree Valley looking towards Cloghnagun and The Sugarloaf in the distance. For those who enjoy the outdoors, this is an idyllic playground, ideally situated between the Wicklow Mountains National Park & The Wicklow Way. There is a number of mountain/forest trails on hand, with hill walking around Lough Bray and Kippure all within walking distance. Crone Wood and Powerscourt Waterfall are nearby. It is rare to find a home that offers such a wealth of rural amenities in a spectacular setting and yet is still within an easy commute of Dublin city and surrounding areas. The M50 (Junction 12) is 20 minutes away and Dublin Airport is a 45 minute drive in normal traffic. The N11, via Enniskerry, is a 20 minute drive. St. Patrick's N.S. Curtlestown is the closest primary school and is served by a school bus service which also brings local children to secondary schools in Bray. At the head of the valley is the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, in what was originally a British Army Barracks c1800. The Centre now runs the Armoury Caf, as part of their work. The caf is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike and supports local artisan traders by featuring their unique designs, crafts and locally produced foods in store. The beautiful village of Enniskerry is at the bottom of the valley. Enniskerry is a busy, growing community, with many shops, cafes, restaurants, two primary schools, sports clubs and the magnificent Powerscourt House & Gardens.

Beautifully positioned residence set on c.70 acres in one of Ireland most picturesque areas. The residence consists of a fine dormer bungalow which has been maintained to a very high standard. Access to the property is via a winding drive, with views down towards The Sugarloaf. Fine mature trees offer privacy and mark the entrance. Lawned gardens and a number of patio areas take full advantage of the outstanding view. The entrance hall is a bright and welcoming space. From here there is access to the utility room and to the open plan living, kitchen, dining area. The utility has its own outside access to prevent mucky boots trailing through the house. A lovely wood-burning stove with a raised, slate hearth and brick surround is the main feature in the living room area. Cleverly designed with a step up to the kitchen/dining room, it presents as one room yet divides the space and gives each area its own identity. Double doors in the dining area open out on to a patio area, with magnificent views across the valley. Downstairs also plays host to one double and one single bedroom and a family bathroom. Upstairs there are two more bedrooms and a second bathroom off a large landing area, ideal for a home office space. There are wonderful views from all the bedrooms. The Glencree River runs along the bottom of the lands, which are accessible from both sides of the valley. There is also a large steel agricultural shed, which forms part of a yard area.
