Although it has the look of a Regency-era hunting lodge, Wolfstown House dates from 2005 and marries period looks with contemporary comfort.
ll the rooms are laid out on one floor and there is a nice flow to the accommodation, with the family and more formal reception rooms to the front, and the four double bedrooms to the rear, overlooking the lovely gardens. There are lots of period features incorporated into the exterior design, while inside some of the timber floors have been reclaimed from an old church and there are solid teak doors, marble fireplaces and fine plasterwork.
The grounds include topiaried gardens, a pavilion, fruit trees and two paddocks, so a pony is a possibility. The prospect of swapping a semi in the ‘burbs for 223sqm of luxurious living space on over three acres is enticing enough, but a price drop of €75,000 will focus the minds of those with an itch for a country home close to the capital. If you’re tempted to run the numbers, be sure to set aside enough for a ride-on lawnmower.
