If you are on the lookout for a property that has a mix of old and new, the old railway storehouse in Co Wicklow is the perfect property for you.

‘The Old Railway Store’ in Tinahely is a stunning four-bed home which blends historic character with modern comforts.


Having featured on RTÉ’s ‘Home of the Year’ in 2017, the property has been lovingly restored over the course of a decade by its current owners.

They bought the disused station in 2008 before setting about renovating it into a truly spectacular home that respected the building’s original features.

The most impressive element is how they have made the most of the property’s brick arches and the original stonework, turning what was once the train’s platform into a terrace.

On sale at €750,000, it is set on approximately 0.57 hectares (1.41 acres) of private gardens in an excellent location on the outskirts of Tinahely village.


The home is full of history and character. Its stone facade, adorned with brick accents around the windows, stands proudly on the remnants of the railway platform.

Inside, tall ceilings and exposed stone walls greet you, while a brick arch crowns the front door.

A toilet with patterned wallpaper and a vintage pull-chain toilet sits to the right, while to the left, a kitchen beckons with its blend of exposed stone and brick walls and wood-beamed ceiling.

The kitchen has rustic elegance, with grey-green cabinets, a Belfast sink, and a striking retro yellow Lacanche range stealing the spotlight.

An island unit encircles a spacious dining area, where double doors open onto a raised patio, once a bustling railway platform.


Next to the kitchen lies the sitting room, with matching doors that open onto the patio.

The room also features a wood-burning stove that radiates warmth throughout.

Beyond the main living spaces on this floor lies a corridor leading to a bathroom, laundry room and two double bedrooms with garden views.

Ascending the stairs, the upper floor unveils two more generously-sized bedrooms, each offering ample space and comfort. Additionally, there is a well-appointed bathroom, adorned with an elegant free-standing bathtub, shower, hand basin and toilet.


Farrow & Ball colours adorn most of the rooms, adding to the charm and character.

Externally, tall electric gates open up a private driveway where ample parking awaits.

As you approach the house, you are enveloped by the lush greenery of lawns, mature trees, vibrant shrubberies and colourful raised flower beds, creating a picturesque setting that exudes natural beauty.

Gravel paths meander through the garden, guiding you to secluded spots.

Adjacent to the house, there is an outdoor space currently serving as an art studio, which is heated by a stove.

However, its versatility opens up possibilities for alternative uses such as a home office or a variety of other functions.

“The Old Railway Store” is situated just outside Tinahely village and is just a 90-minute drive from Dublin, with Gorey 22km away.

It is currently on the market for €750,000 and you can find out more about the property on MyHome.ie.
