Millbrook House, Newcastle, Co. Wicklow A63 F961 – Approximately 5.5 acres in one or more lots Millbrook house derives its name from an 18th Century cornmill (no longer standing) and an adjoining brook. The original house is noted as dating from the 1790s and would have been remodeled and updated in the intervening years. It is believed at one time to have been the residence of an agent for the Earl of Fitzwilliam who was Lord Lieutenant in Ireland and who owned the 90,000-acre Coolattin Estate. The current vendor’s family moved here in the mid-1940s. Millbrook extending to circa 360...
square meters / 3,875 square feet is full of charm and character situated opposite the 11th century tower and with views to the 12th century church adjoins the village of Newcastle and the property offers a true slice of country living yet is close to all amenities. The N11 Dublin to Wexford Road is minutes away, Greystones with its multitude of restaurants and retail offerings and its rail connection to Dublin is 12 km and to emphasise the convenience the local school is literally a walk across the field. Although lived in up to recently, the house does require upgrading and the adjoining coach house and derelict cottage offer endless possibilities. Accommodation Whilst Millbrook requires modernisation due to its east facing front and the south and west facing side and back orientation, there are endless opportunities for expansion (subject to planning). Off the entrance/stairs hall on either side are the two formal rooms, the drawing and dining rooms. To the rear of the hall is an inner hall off which is the breakfast room/study, the kitchen, and the utility room off which is the storeroom. Off the return level there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a further three bedrooms on the first floor. A tight staircase leads to the two-room attic and a similar staircase descends to a small two-room basement from the hall level and it is believed that these are the upper and lower floors of the late 18th century house. The Lands Total approx. 2.3 ha (5.5 acres) and bounded by a small river have extensive frontage to two roads and include avenue, gardens and lawns to the front and side of the house and to the rear two small paddocks and a larger field which in turn wraps around the local church.
