SET ON 1.2 ACRES of mature gardens in Delgany, Co Wicklow, East Hall enjoys a rich history.

Believed to date from the late 1700s, the five-bedroom property was first extended in the mid-1800s and has undergone further renovations in recent years. The finished product is a light-filled, modern residence with no shortage of charm.

On entering, a gallery and roof window flood the reception hall with light. For cold winter evenings, a fireplace with a marble mantlepiece and inset stove in the hallway means you’ll be greeted with a blazing fire as soon as you come home.

Period features throughout the property include corniced ceilings, sash windows, polished timber floors and intricately carved architraves. The hallway gives access to multiple rooms, including the cloakroom, drawing room and open-plan kitchen, dining and living area.

The latter is highly impressive, with a grape vine hanging in the conservatory dining room. The kitchen is bright and immaculate, and features an AGA, Belfast sink, marble worktops and white cabinets. From the dining area, there’s access to a south-facing terrace and gardens.

A library, bathroom, boot room and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms – three of which feature their own en-suite bathrooms and fireplaces – and a family bathroom.

Extending the accommodation further, there’s a separate single storey lodge on the grounds, comprising a kitchen,  living room, bedroom and bathroom. 

There’s also a double garage, boiler house and six stables. Those with a green thumb will certainly appreciate the Victorian garden, which is set behind high stone walls and features a vegetable area, fruit trues and a large lawn. Adjoining lands to East Hall are currently being developed, but the high stone walls offer total privacy.
