LOCATED JUST A 10-minute walk from the heart of Wexford town, 1 Spawell Road is a highly impressive Georgian property.

It was once the town rectory for the Church of Ireland, while the original well of Spawell Road was on its grounds.

Today, the property benefits from a two-storey extension to the rear, which allowed for the addition of an open-plan kitchen and conservatory, as well as several glass windows to make the most of the south-facing aspect. Despite the modern updates, No 1 retains many of its original features and sense of character.

Stepping inside, the entrance hallway is bright and spacious, and is finished with solid wood flooring. The drawing room, which is to the left, is a beautiful space. It includes large bay windows, high ceilings and a feature open fireplace. Its large orientation makes it the perfect space both to unwind and to host guests.

Further down the hall is the sitting room, which opens to a mezzanine overlooking the conservatory at basement level. A large roof window in the stairwell floods this space with natural light. A study and bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Moving down the stairs from the mezzanine, the conservatory features floor-to-ceiling windows and is flooded with natural light. Double doors open to the patio and spacious lawn, where there’s an abundance of flowers, shrubs and fruit trees.

The kitchen is accessed through the conservatory (which would make for an ideal dining area) with white units and splashback on either side of the room, an Aga and solid wood flooring.

There’s another living room on this floor, with a feature corner fireplace and solid fuel stove in here. There’s plenty of storage space at basement level, with a utility room, garage and separate storage room here.

No 1 is set back from the road and features a gravel driveway and off-street parking. Despite being within such close proximity to the town centre, the surrounding trees and shrubs give a countryside feel.

There are countless schools and shops within walking distance, as well as Wexford Racecourse, Wexford General Hospital and Wexford Harbour.

With a charming interior that’s been adapted to modern living and a perfectly balanced location, No 1 is a beautiful family home with plenty for its new owners to enjoy.
