Sunny Southern Home from Home
Seapoint, County Wexford
Facing eastwards, back across the mudflats of Wexford harbour, Seapoint basks on the Burrow Peninsula - Ireland’s sunniest region. This comfortable family home has been recently transformed into a spacious holiday getaway surrounded by championship golf links, acres of beach and a wilderness of wildfowl.
Only a short hop from the UK, and within easy reach of Dublin, it’s very easy to settle into Rosslare, but difficult to leave.
Radiant, uncluttered generous spaces..
Beneath this busy asymmetric roof a bright contemporary holiday home beckons. With three sets of double doors opening onto the front terrace, interior and exterior spaces blend together, as afternoons roll into evenings.
A handful of granite steps bring you to a pair of double doors that welcome you into the entrance hall. Rustic boards form a backdrop, and compliment the neutral walls in a restrained palette of tones that characterise this unfussy house.
The rooms are wonderfully bright, with large windows and spacious layout. Details of white moulding on skirting and architraves contrast with walnut flooring.
The large working kitchen and dining area is central to the flow of the house. A generous American fridge freezer, and six ring electric AGA are just some of the convenient touches that make this such an agreeable kitchen.
French doors link the dining area with the terrace.
An axis of striking black pendant lights make a bold statement of the table illumination.
To the right are the main living areas – an expansive open plan kitchen and dining area linked to a sitting room with soaring double height ceiling that is liberating.
Comfy Shabby Chic sofas, slip covered in a cool blue stripe ticking gather around the unembellished log fireplace.
Four high stools add a breakfast bar dimension to the ample preparation island.
At the far end of the house, there is a relaxing second living room escape – great for games or just reading.
There is also a double ground floor double bedroom and travertine tiled bathroom here, with His & Hers basins.
The two double bedrooms upstairs have French doors, balconies and water fowl views across the bay. Full curtains roped and tasselled frame those of the principal bedroom.
Rope railings define the sunny terrace, where you will enjoy passing hot afternoons and the mingled smell of sea-side and barbeque, or sundowners as ribbons of orange and violet settle over the marshy grasses while the kids kick the last ball of the day across the lawn..
Two wonderful golf links, and picnics on the beach are within easy walking distance for tomorrow.
There is a maritime feel to the four-bed bunk room. A cosy panelled and personal pirate ship space that kids on holidays will love.
The house is equipped with everything you would expect from a luxury home - from WiFi to barbeque, clothes dryer to microwave, books, games, DVD's ..

Seapoint was fabulous
Niamh - October 2015
I will definitely be using Unique Irish Homes in the future. Seapoint was fabulous. I was surprised how lovely Rosslare is in October! The views are amazing from the property and the house itself is stunning and very comfortable.
I look forward to returning there in the summer with my family. Please pass our compliments to the owners. Thank you for all of your assistance.

Just across the narrow cul-de-sac road, are the tidal mudflats known as the southern Slobs. Together with the Slobs to the North of Wexford harbour, this is an international wild fowl reserve and migratory stop-off point for thousands of ducks, geese, swans and waders. More than one-third of the world population of Greenland White-fronted Geese, spend the winter on the Slobs.
The Town of Wexford, a 20 minute drive away is the County Capital. Perhaps best known for hosting the country's premier opera event which plays to packed audiences over an 18 day annual spectacular.
Wexford is home of the Irish Strawberry, you’ll find them for sale along the the roadside everywhere – delicious.
The Lighthouse at the tip of the Hook Peninsula is one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world. A 13th Century Norman structure, it is one of the most fascinating examples of medieval architecture in Ireland.
The tower stands four stories high with walls up to 4m thick. The upper tier which is 6m in diameter originally supported the beacon fire, which was later replaced by the lantern.
Fog guns which were situated at the cliff edge, were fired every 10 minutes..
Curracloe Beach just north of Wexford Harbour, was the location in 1997 for the opening scenes of the movie Saving Private Ryan.
A huge number of ships and German U-boats were sunk off Wexford's coasts during the first World War. One hundred and seventy-six wrecks are listed for the area of sea around the Tuskar Rock leading it to be referred to as "The Graveyard".
The privately owned Saltee Islands are situated approximately 5km off Kilmore Quay. A haven for sea birds including gannets, puffins and Manx shearwaters.

Great Saltee is the most famous bird sanctuary in Ireland and one of the world's major bird sanctuaries.
Until the mid 19th century the extinct middle English dialect of Yola could be heard spoken in Wexford, and a few words still remain in use.
