Set in magnificent grounds (approx. 2.8 acres) and lovingly maintained over almost three decades by its current owners, Feddan House is a terrific family home steeped in history. It began life as a constabulary as part of the Humewood Castle Estate in the mid nineteenth century when there was an active military and peace keeping presence in the area. Humewood Castle, a gothic fantasy, was built in c 1870 as a summer retreat for Fitzwilliam Hume, the wealthy MP for Wicklow and remained in successive generations of the same family until 1992. During Feddan House's history it became a two teacher schoolhouse with associated teachers quarters and accommodations, providing educational opportunities to the local community for many generations before being transformed into a presbytery when a ‘priests walk' was developed in the grounds. It has since been a sumptuous family home for a number of decades where it has enjoyed private woodland walks and a babbling brook providing restful amenities as well as paddock and separate two storey apartment accommodation in the grounds. The house has had a number of illustrious visitors over the years including national politicians of various hues including the late Eamonn De Valera amongst others who was reputedly accommodated as a guest on more than one occasion.
