Four on the market: in co Kildare
A selection of four impressive propeties on the market in co Kildare.
Thatched Cottage, Caragh
€350k Smyth Naas, (045) 895 440
When this thatched cottage was built some time in the late 1800s, two-wheeled horse-drawn carriages would have been the fastest road traffic its occupants would have seen. That all changed in the 1960s, when Mondello Park opened less than a kilometre up the road. Behind the cottage is a modern extension added in 1989 (not thatched) which means you get a total floor area now of 1,012 sq ft. That includes three bedrooms as well as an eat-in kitchen with a brick fireplace and a living room with a beamed ceiling. It's on just under an acre about 1.5km from Caragh village and 10 minutes' drive from Naas.
Thistle Do, Duncreevan, Kilcock
€780k Coonan Property, (01) 628 6128
Thistle Do is known to An Post and Eircode as Thistle Dew, but whichever name it goes by, it will indeed do very nicely. It's about 1.5 kilometres from Kilcock and a three-minute drive from Junction 8 of the M4 motorway. Built in 2012 it's a substantial 3,300 sq ft although for all that space there are only three bedrooms, mainly because the master is huge with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bath. Back on the ground floor there's a big, open-plan kitchen and living room running the length of the house with a limestone fireplace and French doors, along with separate sitting room. It's on an acre of grounds with a detached garage.
70 Wellesley Manor, Newbridge
€425k Jordan Town and Country, (045) 433 550
Wellesley Manor was built in 2001 on the outskirts of Newbridge, handy for the amenities of the town centre, which is about two kilometres away, and also handy for Dublin as it's about half an hour's drive from the Red Cow roundabout. No70 is a square, detached house measuring 1,890 sq ft, having gained a sunroom extension at the back, where the garden faces due west. It has five first-floor bedrooms (one en suite) and three ground-floor living rooms - a dining room and a sitting room either side of the entrance hall, and an open-plan kitchen and living room at the back, giving onto the sunroom.
941 Ladycastle, The K Club, Straffan
€495k Coonan Property, (01) 628 6128
Your golf needs are taken care of for the next two years at No941 Ladycastle at the K Club. There are obligatory green fees and maintenance charges for the occupants, but they've been paid already. No941 is on a cul-de-sac of seven detached houses in the gated Ladycastle development, next to the Smurfit golf course. It measures 1,645 sq ft with three en-suite bedrooms - two on the first floor and one downstairs. The main reception room is a bay-windowed sitting room left of the entrance hall, with a stone fireplace. An archway leads to the kitchen at the back, with French doors to the patio.
