Knockanally House, near Donadea, Co Kildare, was built in the late 18th century in the Italianate style.

It's been carefully maintained in the centuries since, and is now the clubhouse of Knockanally Golf and Country Club.

Close to the entrance to the club - close enough, in fact, that you could attempt a hole in one from your own garden, if you were so inclined - is a large modern house called Chestnut Grove.

Built in 2002, it's a 3,550 sq ft, two-storey house on 1.6 acres of grounds, with a curved driveway behind electric gates.

Beyond the tiled porch, you enter a double-height entrance hall with a huge stone fireplace in it, and arched doors leading to the back garden.

Reception rooms include a sitting room with a fireplace and double doors to the garden, and a living room with a cast iron fireplace, which opens into a wood-panelled sunroom.

The kitchen has a Belfast sink, an oil-fired Aga and an island unit, and there's a utility room off it. There's also a guest toilet on the ground floor.

The master bedroom on the first floor has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite shower room.

One of the other three bedrooms also has an ensuite shower, and the main bathroom, with a raised bath and separate shower, can also be found upstairs.

There's a 700 sq ft garage on the grounds, with an office on its upper floor.

The gardens include a patio with box hedging, a vegetable patch and flowerbeds, and lots of mature trees along the boundary.

If that's not enough horticulture, you could go for a wander around the 120-acre Knockanally estate instead.

The house is about 45 minutes' drive from Dublin via the M4 motorway.

The agent is REA Coonan in Maynooth, (01) 628 6128, and the selling price is €610,000.
