TUCKED AWAY OFF a quiet lane in Gorey, Co Wexford, The Gables gives the impression of being in a world of its own.
In reality, it’s a 20-minute walk from the centre of Gorey town.
The four-bed property is located on a 0.75 acre site of mature, landscaped gardens which, combined with its exposed stone facade, makes for a lasting first impression.
Measuring 3,175 sq ft, The Gables boasts a light-filled and standout interior. This is made evident from the moment you step in the front door, with a triple-height feature window and handcrafted staircase in the reception hall.
The spectacular open-plan kitchen, living and dining area extends from the hallway, and provides the perfect space to entertain. There’s a vaulted cathedral-style ceiling with exposed wooden beams here, while the retro style kitchen adds a unique and fun element to the room. The kitchen features a Belfast sink and matching island, while black slate floor tiles run throughout the hallway, kitchen and dining area.
A wood-burning stove with a red brick surround creates a cosy atmosphere, which continues through to the living area. In here, there’s a cast iron fireplace, hardwood flooring with underfloor heating and floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors which open to the surrounding gardens.
On the other side of the kitchen, the south-facing sunroom is a beautiful, bright space. Double glass doors open from here to the courtyard garden, which leads to a spacious utility room.
There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, including the master bedroom an en suite bathroom. The bespoke staircase leads to the first floor, where a mezzanine area, which overlooks the kitchen and dining room, makes for an ideal reading nook or study.
The two remaining double bedrooms are on this floor, with a walk-in wardrobe in each. The main bathroom, complete with luxury tiling and a raised bath, completes the accommodation. If you’re looking for more space, the purpose-built detached log cabin makes for a perfect home office or workshop.
Outside, a sweeping gravel driveway provides ample parking space. There are large lawn areas throughout the landscaped grounds, although the south-facing courtyard is sure to be the most frequented outdoor space.
With Gorey town within walking distance, beautiful gardens, an impressive interior and the tranquility of the Wexford countryside, The Gables strikes a balance that’s rare to find.
