LOCATED ON TWO acres of private gardens in Co Wicklow, Quercus House is the ideal countryside escape.

On the market for €975,000, the four-bed property is in walk-in condition and is ready to go for moving day. The sale also includes a large detached outbuilding which offers ample storage space.

The gardens surrounding Quercus House are a welcome addition to the property, with mature trees and shrubs surrounding the lawn, patio and gravel areas. You’ll get incredible country views, and, on a good day, you’ll even spot the sea.

Stepping inside, the property has something of a luxury cabin feel. It is decorated mainly in woods, with ash floors, timber-panelled ceilings, cedar window frames and exposed beams. Neutral walls and modern finishes keep this home from feeling dated, however.

The heart of the home is the open plan area downstairs, which features a kitchen, dining room, sunroom and living room. The kitchen includes handcrafted elm units, curved worktops, a crescent shaped island, an Aga cooker and terracotta tiled floors, while there’s room for a large table in the dining area. A separate utility room provides extra storage space.

The living room is filled with natural light thanks to the double height ceilings and large picture windows, while a solid fuel stove and feature stone wall add a cosy feel.

Timber window seats in the sunroom make for the perfect spot to sit and read a good book, while French doors open to a south-facing patio with countryside views.
