The Old Station House offers Olde Worlde charm with a modern finish in one of the most idyllic settings in County Wicklow. Once the Ballinglen Railway Station House of the Fitzwilliam Estate, this property has been extended and modernised over the years and is now a spacious 3 bedroom family home steeped in character and many unique features.

Located between the towns of Aughrim and Tinahely, this property, although in a rural setting, is close to many amenities and services including primary and secondary schools, sports and leisure facilities, shops and front line services.

Accommodation comprises of entrance hall, fully fitted kitchen with Rayburn range cooker and green slate floor, light filled sunroom with double height cathedral style ceiling and woodburning stove, cosy dual aspect lounge with woodburning stove, fully fitted utility/boot room with shower, full family bathroom, bedroom/office with stairs to a mezzanine level, and 3 further mezzanine bedrooms all with their own stairs.

Entered through original wrought iron gates and on to a gravel tree lined driveway. The mature grounds stretch to a generous 1.5 acres and are planted and lawned. To the rear of the property there is a well proportioned, garage/workshop that has been finished in the same style as the main house. This could easily be converted in to further accommodation. One of the most unique features of this property is the old railway bridge and platform which has been made in to a water feature by the current owners.
