WITH A THATCHED roof and beautiful gardens, Creech Barrow looks as if it is tucked away in the middle of the countryside. 

In reality, it’s located just a five-minute walk from the heart of Delgany village in Co Wicklow.

The property was built in 1950 and has been restored and upgraded over the years to create a charming four-bed home with modern comforts. 

Stepping inside, there are three reception rooms to the left of the hallway. The sitting room is a cosy space, with a feature open brick fireplace and stained beam ceiling here. Double doors lead to the drawing room, which was added onto the property as part of the renovations yet complements its original style perfectly.

With vaulted ceilings, exposed duck egg blue ceiling beams and picture windows, this room is beautifully designed and offers the perfect spot to host guests or to unwind alongside the solid fuel-burning stove. 

Solid timber floors continue through to the dining room, where an atrium fills the space with natural light. The kitchen is conveniently accessed from here, with grey Shaker-style units adding a modern feel alongside the AGA cooker.

On the other side of the hall, there are three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms feature a dual aspect, while the family bathroom includes a bath with antique-style fittings.

The first floor is home to the master bedroom suite, which looks like something you’d see in a hotel. Vaulted ceilings and a picture window give this room a spacious and airy feel, while two walk-in wardrobes mean clutter can be out of sight and out of mind. The bathroom on this floor matches the luxurious style of the bedroom, with a roll-top cast iron bath, marble counter tops and his ‘n’ hers sinks.

The sale of Creech Barrow also includes a detached granny flat, comprising a sunroom, kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and gallery bedroom. The design here is similar to that of the main house, with ceiling beams, a solid fuel-burning stove, picture windows and wood flooring.
