COMBINING A TRADITIONAL two-storey house with features of a castle, Quanstown Castle is an eye-catching property.

Located in Piercetown, Co Wexford, the four-bed home is on the market for €350,000 through Sherry FitzGerald Radford.

Formerly part of Johnstown Castle Estate, the house was totally renovated a number of years ago to create a unique residence with lots of character.

There’s no shortage of unusual features at Quanstown Castle including, of course, the battlements and stone facade. It comes to the market in excellent condition, and benefits from ample natural light thanks to the numerous picture windows throughout.

The open-plan kitchen and dining area is the heart of the home, with an open fireplace, quarry tile flooring, and multiple floor and wall units, as well as space to add in a living area if desired. Double doors open to the rear garden where there’s a neat patio for dining al fresco, and a lawn.

A sitting room is located off the kitchen, with oak flooring and a feature fireplace with a stone finish in here. The sitting room leads through to the office/study, which would also make for a lovely home library or reading area if desired. Completing the ground floor accommodation are two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, plus the family bathroom.

Moving to the first floor, the master bedroom is located in the castle part of the house and boasts access to a balcony which is surrounded by the battlements. This area has wooden decking, making for the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a morning coffee. Another double bedroom is located at this level, as well as a walk-in wardrobe and two bathrooms.

Outside, the gravel driveway provides ample parking space, while the rear garden enjoys a sense of privacy thanks to the surrounding mature trees and shrubs.

If you dream of living in your own castle but don’t have a royal budget, this could be the property for you.
