LOCATED ON EIGHT acres of grounds in the beautiful Wexford countryside, Clonganny House is a highly impressive property.

On the market for €1.6m through Savills, the classical Georgian country house boasts a converted courtyard with a range of outbuildings and a recently renovated gate lodge.

The current owners bought the vine-clad property in 2014 and carried out extensive renovations and refurbishments, turning it into a luxury B&B in the process.

The main residence is laid out over two floors and extends to 6,565 sq ft, while the courtyard accommodation measures 2,314 sq ft. The gate lodge is 699 sq ft. 

The period features in the main house are simply beautiful, and include sash windows and shutters, hardwood floors, architraves and ceiling roses.

Stepping inside, the drawing room and formal dining room to the front of the house enjoy plenty of sunlight thanks to their south-facing orientation. The family dining room is to the rear of the property, with an exposed brick wall and wood-burning fireplace in here. The inner hall opens to the commercial kitchen, which includes a professional Athanor cooking suite.

The west wing of the house is accessed via the family dining room, with a sitting room, utility room and bathroom here. A second staircase in this wing leads to the bedroom accommodation, with one bedroom and dressing room in the west wing, and three double bedrooms and two bathrooms in the main accommodation. 

The bedrooms are of hotel quality, with beautiful decor, garden views and plenty of space. At the second level in the dormer attic, there are two further bedrooms, a living room and a shower room.

Moving to the courtyard, there is a range of traditional restored outbuildings here. There are four guest bedroom suites in the east wing, each with independent access to the courtyard. The remainder of the courtyard comprises a range of storage facilities, as well as a double height former coach house.

The final building is the gate lodge, which is situated next to the entrance. It dates back to the early 1900s and was extended in the 1990s. Its pretty pink facade grabs attention straight away, while trees and shrubs along the pathway ensure a sense of privacy.
