For sale - beautiful family home was once used as RIC barracks

A charming Victorian home that was once a Royal Irish Constabulary barracks has been put up for sale with an asking price of €1,150,000.

The home is situated in Co Wicklow and with four bedrooms and three bathrooms and would make for a perfect family home.

The home served as the Royal Constabulary Barracks from 1903 to 1922, which was a period of much unrest and conflict in Ireland as the battle for independence from Britain raged.

Much of the character and features from that time remain in place, but the property is fully modernised with all the necessary comforts and convenience for modern day living.

The Wicklow home is a short journey from all of the attractions the town has to offer, with the seaside a mere stone’s throw away. There are also numeous bars, cafes, restaurants and shops in the local area.

Inside the detached home, which is known as Glen Lodge, is a black and white tiled hallway, with living room and drawing room either side.

The living room opens out onto a family room at the back of the property with both featuring a cast-iron fireplace.
