The Old Rectory is an attractive 5 bed, two story period property. Situated in the verdant Wexford countryside just outside the village of Ballycanew, the property enjoys a delightful setting among 1.4 ha (3.5 acres) of grounds and gardens including a small paddock. Delightfully tucked away down its own short avenue, the house offers new owners wonderful privacy and solitude.

The house retains a wealth of period features throughout, consistent with the age and style of the building including; original sash windows, and wood floors along with full height ceilings and plain cornicing. The property, whilst currently lived in will require some modernisation and updating.

There is a solid wood burning stove with marble surround. On the opposite side is a similar size and styled room in use as a dining room with a feature tiled fireplace. Further down the hall is the staircase with under stair storage and opposite is the study / office. The kitchen is of traditional country style with solid fuel Rayburn cooker and access to the utility room which is plumbed and has ample storage units along with a Belfast sink. A guest WC completes the accommodation at this level.

Upstairs there are four good size, generous bedrooms including the master bedroom. A smaller single bedroom which could be turned into a walk-through wardrobe or ensuite subject to works is adjacent to the master bedroom. There is a guest WC and a separate family bathroom.
