The Parochial House in Roundwood is a superb, period property situated on an outstanding site in the centre of beautiful Roundwood Village. The original dwelling was constructed c. 1938 and is an impressive double fronted residence on extensive grounds of c. 2.4 acres. Approached by a sweeping driveway, the Parochial house has an internal floor area of c. 215 Sq.m (2,314 Sq.ft) and includes a detached garage and outbuildings to the rear. There is plenty of space to add a large modern extension to the rear of this already substantial property subject to the relevant planning permissions.

Accommodation includes an entrance porch, entrance hall, 2 large bright and airy reception rooms, cosy kitchen, utility room, four bathrooms/WC and three well-appointed double bedrooms. The property has been well maintained and improved over the years, but it still manages to retain the elegance and charm of the original design. While this stunning period property would no doubt benefit from a little modernisation it truly has the potential to be a wonderful and unique family home in the heart of one of the most picturesque villages in Ireland.

The Parochial House is alarmed and uses an oil fired central heating system. Some windows are UPVC double glazed with some original hardwood single glazed windows on the first floor.
The extensive grounds extend to c. 2.4 Acres in total. The property is secured by electric gates and accessed via a sweeping driveway leading to a graveled parking area to the front and sides of the dwelling. The wonderful garden is primarily comprised of manicured lawns interspersed with attractive trees and shrubs. There is a paddock close to the house which could be ideal for any number of uses. The boundaries are clearly marked by a mix of hedgerow, trees, walls and post and rail fencing.

The outbuildings include a garage and tool shed measuring c. 16.25 Sq.m (175 Sq.ft).

Under the Roundwood Settlement Plan 2016-2022 the majority of the site of c. 2.4 Acres is zoned for secondary development. The objectives of secondary zoning are as follows "To provide for the sustainable development of a mix of uses including residential, employment, community and recreational uses that provide for the needs of the existing settlement and that allows for the future growth of the settlement". A small section c. 0.75 Acres is located outside the zoned area and would be considered rural land (subject to rural planning guidelines.) The zoning adds clear development potential to the adjoining site (subject to relevant planning permission.)

The property is ideally located on the South side of Roundwood village within easy walking distance of all local amenities including Church, Shops, Restaurants, Schools and Pubs. The picturesque village of Roundwood village is famous for being one of the highest and most scenic villages in County Wicklow. The village overlooks the Roundwood Reservoir and popular locations such as Powerscourt, Lough Dan and Glendalough are just a short car journey away. Despite the breath-taking location, Roundwood is also ideally located for the commuter with easy access to the N11 Roadway, the M50 Motorway with Dart and rail services located just 15km away in the town of Bray.
