LOCATED A 15-MINUTE walk from Enniskerry village, The Coach House is part of Co Wicklow’s history. 

Formerly the stables of Kilgarron House, The Coach House has been converted into a unique five-bed home by its current owners of the past 30 years.

Lord Powerscourt originally built Kilgarron House for his daughter Lady Wingfield on land that then formed part of Powerscourt Estate. Over the years, it was then sold to English author Frederick Forsyth, who lived there until 1980.

The next owners divided Kilgarron into several properties and, in 1985, sold what had been the stables of the main house to the current owners; thus creating The Coach House.

The interior of the property features a quirky countryside charm, with each room having a slightly different feel. 

On the ground floor, the open-plan kitchen, dining and living room is the heart of the home. Double height ceilings create a great sense of space, while an exposed stone wall and wood-burning stove create a cosy feel. 

You’ll never be stuck for storage space in the kitchen, with extensive cabinets on three sides, plus a centre island.

Double doors from the living area open to a separate sunroom, which benefits from direct access to the rear patio. Also on the ground floor is a sizeable home office, a utility room, a laundry room and a games room.

Moving to the first floor, there’s a bright landing area with a balcony which overlooks the entrance courtyard. The master suite, of course, is the most impressive, with wall-to-wall built-in wardrobes, a walk-in wardrobe, an en suite bathroom with a steam room, plus double doors to a decked balcony area.

A mezzanine area which overlooks the kitchen, three further bedrooms and the main bathroom complete the accommodation.
