Details: Four bedroom home and stables on 3.09 acres
Shemara is an attractive four bedroom red brick bungalow that has everything an equestrian family could want, with stables, an arena and paddocks just a short walk from the back door.
The 160sqm (1,722sq ft) home is located five miles outside Kilkenny city at Esker, Jenkinstown, surrounded by just over three acres of land.
In recent years, the property has been home to an equestrian family whose daughter showjumped competitively, including at the prestigious Millstreet show.
Shemara is a warm and welcoming home, featuring a generous-sized living room with a solid fuel stove. However the kitchen is the main focal point in this home, and it has been designed with the cook in mind.
It has floor tiles, recessed lighting, an abundance of counter space, timber fitted units and a fully fitted utility room.
Just off the kitchen is the main dining room, which can comfortably accommodate a large number of guests. If the party is bigger than usual, guests can spill over into the conservatory next door.
The property has four large double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, as well as a family bathroom.
Outside, the house is surrounded by a carefully manicured garden with a pond and pathway to the stable yard.
This yard includes a single-storey building, with four stables and a tack room with a WC and wash hand basin. Behind the stables is a two-span hayshed with lean-to, ideal for fodder storage and parking horseboxes.
To the side of the shed is a 96ft x 90ft sand arena, which can be used for flatwork and jump schooling and is a godsend in the Irish climate.
The yard is surrounded by three acres of prime Kilkenny grassland.
Right next door to Shemara is a second property, which is also for sale. This two-bedroom detached bungalow with conservatory is also owned by the same family and can be bought as a separate lot or together with the main house.
The two-bedroom bungalow comes with the benefit of full planning permission for an extension to include two more bedrooms and en suite bathrooms.
The second property has an AMV of €137,000.
