FOR THE ASKING price alone, a home like Tudor Lodge is worth considering. For €365,000, you’ll get five bedrooms, three bathrooms, multiple social spaces and plenty of green space.

Located on almost an acre near the village of Glenbrien in Co Wexford, Tudor Lodge’s 300 sq m floor area is covered by a thatched roof. The house was built around 250 years ago, and despite modern updates remains an idyllic country home.

Each room is married to the next through the exposed timber ceilings that command every space. The period style decor might not be to the taste of every buyer, but could be easily updated should you fancy something more contemporary.

In the sitting room, carpeted floors, and a solid fuel stove keep up with tradition, while three bay double aspect windows introduce natural light.

Well-maintained tiling covers the floor in the kitchen. A Stanley range, as well as an electric oven, built-in oak kitchen units, and a gas hob proves that traditional and modern features can merge, seamlessly. A utility area to the side of this room keeps laundry separate from the main kitchen appliances.

The dining room is perhaps the most eye-catching room in this house, with its exposed brickwork and double height vaulted ceiling with balcony: two features commonly seen in today’s new builds.

Warmth is added to the concrete floor with a large area rug. A solid fuel stove also balances out the cold surfaces and expanse of this room, and two sets of twin glass doors lead to a courtyard and the garden.


Each of the five bedrooms are carpeted with exposed beams or wooden panels spreading across the ceiling – something of a recurring theme. Two of the double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes.

With a mix of double and twin rooms, there’s space for a large family and then some.

Take a walk outside and you’ll discover five detached stables which could of course be converted should equine pursuits not take your fancy.

For those wanting the quiet life, Tudor Lodge might just be the answer. There’s a school around 500m away, along with the nearby village of Glenbrien.

A 15 minute drive will have you in Enniscorthy, and the M11 will get you on the straight road to Dublin, with a journey time of about 1 hour 40 minutes to the city.
