8-bed residence with €625k price tag has B&B potential

€625,000 could buy this “superior” 8-bed dormer residence with a detached garage on a circa 1.5-acre site in Co Wexford.

Quinn Property is handling the sale of ‘Highfield House’, Bolinready, Ballycanew, Gorey, Co. Wexford.

According to the property firm, the B3-rated residence – constructed in 2003, extending to 4,500 sq. ft – is in “pristine condition throughout”.

Accommodation – which is “bright and spacious” – includes a “spacious” entrance hall, a sitting room, a living room, a kitchen, an utility, a sunroom, eight double bedrooms, four bathrooms, an office and a games room.

You can approach via electric gates with a tarmacadam driveway leading to a large cobble lock back yard. There is ample parking, a double garage and storage facilities.

B&B potential

Standing on a c. 1.5-acre elevated site, the house enjoys “stunning” views over the lush countryside and along the coastline.

It is bounded by mature beech and Griselinia hedging, affording complete privacy.

The grounds offer “excellent” outdoor activities and are an “ideal” setting for summer barbeques and a children’s play paradise.

The selling agent suggested an opportunity to add to this with a tennis court if the purchaser desires.

Continuing, the agent said: “This property offers tremendous potential for a B&B enterprise being located in an area of tourism.”

“It is close to the coast, Ballycanew Riding Centre, Barnadown Equestrian Centre and Ballymore Historical Centre.”

“There may also be further potential to convert the extensive garage into apartments or granny flat, subject to the necessary planning permission,” the agent concluded.

Services include a private well, a septic tank and oil-fired central heating.


According to the selling agent, this “superb” family home enjoys an “excellent” rural location.

It is 3km from the village of Ballycanew with a primary school, churches, supermarkets, a garage, a community centre and a hair salon. Yet, it is only 10km from the coast with beaches such as Courtown, Cahore, Poulshone and Old Bawn.

Furthermore, the property is 10km from Gorey, which offers a choice of schools, restaurants, shops, pubs, award-winning hotels, cinema, theatre and a vast array of local leisure amenities.

Besides, Gorey has “excellent” daily commuter services with Bus Eireann and the local train station.

Lastly, the property is 10km from Ferns, 30km from Wexford, and a ten-minute drive from the Ballycanew Roundabout.

Also, there is access onto the M11, which leaves Dublin a “comfortable” commute of an hour.
