The property has its own swimming pool and gym, and there are stables and a sand arena for equestrian exercise. There are three acres of gardens among the 45 acres of land, the maintenance of which will amount to a full-time job for somebody.

Then there's the house itself, with its internal dimensions of 6,028 square feet. Vacuuming all that will take around three hours, burning an average of 200 calories an hour.

The open-plan living/dining room measures some 32 feet by 24 feet. The kitchen is even bigger, at 32 feet by 36, and has its own good-sized utility room.

There are six bedrooms, three of them en-suite, a guest toilet and main family bathroom. Then there's the exercise room and the swimming pool. Upstairs is a converted attic room.

The property is approached by electronic gates and a gravelled driveway. There's a separate two-storey property on the grounds, with its own vehicle entrance. This houses a kitchen, bathroom and offices, and a garage at the back. The agents suggest that a buyer interested in developing an equestrian business could use this as a tack room, office or coffee shop.

There are six floodlit stables and a purpose-built sand arena, together with various farm buildings. These include a hay barn and a couple of sheds.

The property is about 13 kilometres from Dublin via the N2/M2, which is about one kilometre away. There's both mains water and a private well.

The agent is Thomas J O'Driscoll & Associates in Cork city (021 427 0435) and the asking price is €1.35m.
