Nugent Auctioneers, 045 865 555 are proud to present this most private home set on 0.99 Hectares/2.45 acres overlooking beautiful gardens and the Wicklow hills including Church Mountain, Moanbane and Mullaghcleevaun. This property boasts 4 Bedrooms, a focal Sitting/Drawing room along with a home office and a spacious split-level detached garage. With an array of wonderful trees, shrubs and indeed its own Mature Forest complete with a Bollan stone, it is the ideal home which was originally built in the 1960’s and more recently extended and upgraded. This impressive property fits neatly into the landscape and with approximately 2.5 acres maybe ideal for those wishing to acquire their own pony. All within eye-shot of the Blessington Lakes.


Irish author, playwright, and radio host of ‘Dear Sir or Madam’, John O’Donovan built ‘Slieve Corragh’. He wrote several plays for the Abbey Theatre; he was also a regular contributor to RTE programmes such as ‘Wanderly Wagon’ and a music critic for the RTE Guide. His legacy remains in the property to the present day with his original shrubs, trees and plants continuing to thrive. As you enter the property you pass two streetlamps circa 1900 one electric and one gas. One of the lamps is now a main garden feature at the front of the house. There is also a ‘wart well’ on the tree lined boundary in the private forest, beside which John’s favorite seat can be found where he would put ‘pen to paper’ making full use of the peaceful surroundings.

Please see our virtual tour for initial inspection.
