Old world meets modern luxury at this country villa in the sunny south-east

With 0.75 acres and Gorey town within walking distance, The Gables enjoys the best of both worlds.

TUCKED AWAY OFF a quiet lane in Gorey, Co Wexford, The Gables gives the impression of being in a world of its own.

In reality, it’s a 20-minute walk from the centre of Gorey town. 

The four-bed property is located on a 0.75 acre site of mature, landscaped gardens which, combined with its exposed stone facade, makes for a lasting first impression.

Measuring 3,175 sq ft, The Gables boasts a light-filled and standout interior. This is made evident from the moment you step in the front door, with a triple-height feature window and handcrafted staircase in the reception hall.

The spectacular open-plan kitchen, living and dining area extends from the hallway, and provides the perfect space to entertain. There’s a vaulted cathedral-style ceiling with exposed wooden beams here, while the retro style kitchen adds a unique and fun element to the room. The kitchen features a Belfast sink and matching island, while black slate floor tiles run throughout the hallway, kitchen and dining area.

A wood-burning stove with a red brick surround creates a cosy atmosphere, which continues through to the living area. In here, there’s a cast iron fireplace, hardwood flooring with underfloor heating and floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors which open to the surrounding gardens.

On the other side of the kitchen, the south-facing sunroom is a beautiful, bright space. Double glass doors open from here to the courtyard garden, which leads to a spacious utility room.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, including the master bedroom an en suite bathroom. The bespoke staircase leads to the first floor, where a mezzanine area, which overlooks the kitchen and dining room, makes for an ideal reading nook or study.

Outside, a sweeping gravel driveway provides ample parking space. There are large lawn areas throughout the landscaped grounds, although the south-facing courtyard is sure to be the most frequented outdoor space.
