Charming old schoolhouse in idyllic village setting.

This is a charming old schoolhouse ready to start a new chapter in its existence. Originally constructed in 1889, it was extended in the 1940’s and again in the 1980’s. It was actively operating as the local school up to ten years ago. Sitting on a generous site of over half an acre, the property remains structurally sound. While suitable for a variety of alternative commercial uses, with a little imagination, it could be transformed into a most delightful residential dwelling (subject, of course, to the necessary planning permission being obtained). At present, the property comprises two ‘classrooms’ to the front and an office and toilets to the rear. The main rooms have lovely high ceilings and would originally have been heated by open fireplaces before the central heating was installed.

Ballyoughter is a typical rural village about 8 kilometres from Gorey and the M11 to Dublin. Situated on a small secondary road, it is only a few kilometres from the larger villages of Camolin and Ballycanew and is within easy reach of a variety of social amenities and both coastal and woodland walks. This is a most picturesque village setting in the heart of north Wexford’s countryside.
