details

Five bedroom 353 sq m home on 30 acres

Land, stables, house -- when it comes to an equestrian idyll, this 30acre residential property at Gormanstown has everything any buyer could wish for.

Situated a quarter of a mile off the road and approached by a tree-lined avenue, the 353sqm (3,800sq ft) residence was built in 2001. The three-storey house has bright and well-proportioned rooms throughout.

At ground level accommodation its entrance hall has a hardwood floor and imposing staircase. Double doors off the hallway lead into the drawing room, which in turn leads to the study.

The large marble-tiled kitchen features a range of cream fitted units, recessed lighting and integrated dishwasher, as well as a double-oven, oil-fired Aga and a breakfast bar.

Off the kitchen is a boot room, essential for anyone with an outdoor pursuit and particularly for those who have horses. The boot room has marble tiles, fitted units and a washroom.

The large sun room doubles as a living/family room, with timber flooring, recessed lighting and French doors leading out to the garden. There is also a more formal sitting room.

Moving upstairs, the first floor contains the master bedroom, which is en suite and features walk-in wardrobes. The next two bedrooms are 'Jack and Jill' style, being linked by a bathroom. Finally, the second floor contains two more bedrooms and a separate bathroom.

The house has zoned central heating, external sensor lighting and a burglar alarm installed.

Outside, the Gormanstown property is equally impressive. To the right hand side of the house lies a compact stable block.

This includes an American Barn with 15 looseboxes, a tack room and WC, as well as a three-span hay barn.

Access to the land is directly off the yard, with the fields divided into post-and-railed paddocks with water laid on.

Given its location in the racing heart of Co Kildare, this property is undoubtedly going to attract interest from the thoroughbred sector. It is located 6.5km from Kilcullen, 16km from Punchestown, 19km from Naas and 59km from Dublin city.

With 30 acres of land and modern stabling already in place, it would make a fantastic stud farm but, with the addition of gallops, would also make a great training yard.

However, the property could also attract the eye of professional show jumpers, event or dressage riders.

The addition of an all-weather arena would turn this property into a top class competitive yard.
