Stonewell Lodge is a lovely rural property on 12ac at Boleybeg, Ballymore Eustace, Co Kildare.

The property, located 4km from Ballymore village and 12km from Naas, will be sold by public auction with a guide price of €800,000.

The substantial house is beautifully finished and comes with generous reception areas, including a hall complete with tiled floors, stained glass doors and a teak staircase.

The reception rooms include a drawing room and family room both with cast-iron Victorian fireplaces with tiled insets.


The kitchen is fitted in antique pine, while a sunroom to the back of the residence is tastefully built, including cedar windows, American pitch pine beams, pine flooring and paneled flooring.

The four bedrooms include a master bedroom with ensuite facilities.

The lands are good quality grazing lands and are well laid out in a number of manageable paddocks. The majority of the lands are bounded by mature hedging, while the internal divisions are, for the most part, stud railed.

The yard has a separate stone entrance and includes four loose boxes, a tack room, three-span haybarn and loading area.

Stonewell Lodge is home to two of the most talented show jumping horses of the 1990s, Cor D'alme I Z and De Pom Dela Rossa. Both horses represented their country at the highest international level and now their progeny, bred at Stonewell Lodge, continue to demonstrate the ability of this fine breeding line.

The property is ideal for a family with business interests in the greater Dublin area and a keen interest in bloodstock. It will be sold by auction at Lawlor's Hotel, Naas, at 3pm on Wednesday, October 2.
