Winterwood, Daars, Sallins, Co Kildare
Five bedrooms sitting on acres
As befits a modern house in the Sallins area of Co. Kildare, Winterwood's location would suit anyone wishing to play golf at the K Club.
Its 650sqm of accommodation includes a drawing room, diningroom, a sun room as well as an entertainment room comprising both a bar and a games area..
Outside the grounds are also devoted to leisure with landscaped gardens and three ornamental interconnecting ponds to the front of the house.
In addition the yard is equipped for horse enthusiasts with about 10 of the acres divided into two post and railed paddocks to graze and exercise a few horses.
The agents are currently asking €1.75 million which is down 30pc from last year's €2.5 million asking price.
Built as recently as 2009, Winterwood is approached by a sweeping driveway.
Entered under a column-supported balcony, the house's vast entrance hallway is floored in marble and a marble staircase rises to the first floor landing.
The polished marble flooring runs through the entire ground floor including the large reception rooms on either side of the hall, and also in the kitchen where a generous huge island unit is also topped in marble.
Upstairs is a spacious landing from which double doors lead to a granite balustraded rectangular balcony over the front door.
Two similar but bow-shaped balconies open off the two front bedrooms.
Three of the five bedrooms have marble clad en suite bathrooms and the same lavish tiling is evident in a family bathroom.
Outside buildings include two detached offices as well as 400sqm of storage space which have the potential to be converted into living accommodation.
The K Club is located within two miles while horsey enthusiastshave the choice of racecourses at Naas, The Curragh and Punchestown as well as the Kildare Hunt pack.
