Our stunning home was built in 2008. It has gorgeous features including 16 foot ceilings, stone floor to ceiling fireplace and contemporary kitchen and bathroom. We love it as our home because it is near to the town but has a lovely rural feel with lots of space (approx 0.5 acre). It is bright and airy with high ceilings and lovely wooden features. This house was an old cottage that is completely redesigned. The original renovated cottage now houses the 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and the modern extension opens up into a kitchen, dining room, living room and playroom with high ceiling, floor to ceiling glass windows in the sitting room and a modern look. This is a great marrying of old and new.
The house comprises of a large hallway, 3 double bedrooms downstairs, 2 bathrooms (main bathroom with walk in shower and large bath, other bathroom with electric shower), the upstairs attic conversion houses a small office space, large double bedroom with lovely cosy area and study space and an ensuite bathroom comprising of WC, sink and shower, utility room with washing machine and dryer with double doors opening onto the side area of the garden. There is a large open plan kitchen and dining room with all mod cons (Conor is a chef!!!). There are double doors that slide back into the walls leading into the living room with 2 large couches, a piano, TV and floor to ceiling (16 foot) Liscannor Stone fireplace. The play room comprises of a comfortable corner couch with TV and XBox One.
There are double doors from the playroom, living room and dining room that open on to the back garden. Giving a lovely sense of bringing the outdoors inside and creates great light. The garden is on two levels with a lovely grassy area for playing football or rounders and a stony area with mature trees for privacy. There is a BBQ, pizza oven, 2 tables and 12 chairs, a swing chair to relax in and a hammock in the trees.
The studio is located at the end of the garden and comprises of a small gym area, equipped with a treadmill, exercise bike, exercise bench, suspension trainer, weights and mats. If you want to just relax in the studio on the other side there is a pool table, a full size table tennis table, a dart board and double doors opening up to the garden.
The bedrooms are a good size. There are two bedrooms to the front of the house, both with bay windows and one with a fireplace. The master bedroom is large with double doors leading out to the side area of the garden. The attic has been converted with a good size double bedroom, study area, ensuite and small home office.
This house offers the comfort of modern living with a country quietness. It is only 2 kms from the centre of Newbridge where there are shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Naas is only 18kms away, Kildare Outlet Village (great for shopping) is only 10kms. The house is located just a 3 minute drive from the train station which has direct trains to Dublin City (30 - 40 minutes on the train). There is also a car available to you while you are on your stay if you need it.
We also have a 3 bedroom summer home in Rosslare, Co Wexford set in a gated community on an 18 hole golf course with tennis courts, a playground and football pitch which we are happy to offer for the right home exchange.
