‘Stone Haven’, Glenmalure, Co. Wicklow

An enchanting 18th-century home in Glenmalure, Wicklow, with a two-bedroom art studio and beguiling gardens will be sold at an online auction on July 5.
Nestled in the breath-taking Glenmalure Valley, an area renowned for its stunning landscapes, ‘Stone Haven’ in Carriglineen offers a harmonious blend of timeless charm and modern elegance,

Steeped in history, the stunning two-bedroom home was revitalised two decades ago by its current owners, with their labour of love resulting in an inviting homestead with impeccably manicured gardens that conjure images of a Hollywood fantasy movie set.

An attractive granite stone entrance with a hard core driveway flanked by rockeries filled with flowers, shrubs, and trees leads you to the home’s striking stone façade.

Stepping inside the rustic home, the property’s old-world charm continues with stunning natural stone and high ceilings featuring throughout.

The expansive kitchen/dining room boasts fitted units, granite lintels and a Rayburn cooker, while the cosy sitting room has a feature fireplace and stove.

A hallway leads to the first of two bedrooms, with the ground floor one including a bidet, free-standing bath, timber panelling and a feature stone wall.

Further accommodation is provided in the two-bedroom studio space, which has a kitchen with a vaulted ceiling, a bathroom and a living/dining room with a free-standing stove adjoining the art studio.

Outside, hidden pathways invite exploration, and strategic seating areas offer quiet contemplation and enjoyment of the garden’s otherworldly beauty.

A gentle stream winds its way through the property, with two small bridges adding to the charm and facilitating easy access across the southwest-facing garden, which boasts numerous spots to relax and unwind, with a patio area for outdoor dining.

There is also a stable yard with three sheds, ideal for those with equestrian interests. The property has substantial road frontage and stunning landscaped grounds that envelop the house, complimenting the unparalleled scenic views.

The property will be sold at auction in three separate lots – the residence and studio on c. 2.25 acres, guiding at €425,000, a c. 2.45-acre site (guiding €30,000) and the entire.

“Stone Haven represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of Ireland’s storied landscape, with properties in this much sought-after location rarely coming to the market,” Jack Quinn of QUINN PROPERTY noted.

“Surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, this fairy tale home is a rare gem and promises tranquillity, inspiration and a profound connection to nature with unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape.

“The lands are predominantly in the grass. However, there is an area of land included in Lot 1 that has not been cultivated, cleared or touched by human hands since the glacier times and comprises huge round granite rock deposits.

“As there is substantial road frontage, there may be site potential, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.”
