TUCKED AWAY ON a quiet country lane in Ashford, Co Wicklow, Tintern is a contemporary bungalow in a picturesque location.  

The four-bed property sits on a site of 0.5 acres of beautiful gardens, with tall trees dotted throughout adding to the sense of privacy. Tintern is surrounded by the Wicklow countryside which, combined with its lush grounds, gives the feeling of being on your own private retreat. 

The 1,776 sq ft property itself fits in perfectly with its surroundings, with large windows, trellises and a decking area to the left of the front door.

Stepping inside, the bright, light-filled hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house. The exceptionally spacious living room is located to the left, with double-height ceilings and feature windows which overlook the gardens adding to the airy feel. A large solid fuel stove ensures that the room is filled with heat on cold winter days.

Several steps lead to the kitchen and dining area, which is also designed to make the most use of natural light. With a centre island/breakfast bar and space for a large dining table, this room is ideal for both weeknight dinners as a family and entertaining guests at the weekends.

Porcelain tiled flooring and cream cabinetry complement the bright, modern feel of the house, while a bright red centre island adds a perfect pop of colour. Double doors open from the dining area to the south-facing garden, where residents can unwind on the patio.

The four bedrooms and family bathroom are located on the other side of the hallway, with garden views from each bedroom. There are three double bedrooms and one single bedroom, providing plenty of room for every member of the family, and the potential to create a home office or library, depending on the new homeowners’ needs.
