A wonderful opportunity to acquire a modern residential holding encompassing equestrian facilities all set on C.12.37 acres of prime land and located just 5 minutes from Tullamore. Upon entry to the property through the timber gated entrance you will be met by a modern, two storey residence which conveys grandeur with an almost Georgian appearance with stepped entrance to the first floor. The house itself has been designed with meticulous detail throughout. To the rear of the house is a south facing patio and hard landscaped al fresco dining and entertaining area with views across the lands to rear. As you travel down the gravel driveway to rear you will pass by a small establishing orchard with a grove of trees on the left. The stables will appear to you nestled behind the trees and cleverly obscured from the house. To the side of the stables is a large 44 meters x 25 meters floodlit sand arena with post and rail fence and southwest facing shelter belt. The yard, stables and sand arena are all interlinked through a series of gateways and passageways so that movement of animals between these areas and the paddocked fields is easily managed. The land, currently in pasture and meadow is laid out in 4 easily managed paddocks and could be subdivided into more paddocks if desired. Water troughs supplied by a rainwater harvesting tank feed water to each division. This property can be purchased in two lots if desired. The first lot comprises of the residence, stables and sand arena on C.4.87 acres with the second lot comprising C.7.5 acres of adjoining land which can be accessed via separate entrance. The area is characterised by one off housing and farmland and is in a very peaceful location yet within a five-minute commute to Tullamore and main arterial road and motorway network.
The residence itself has been designed to both intrigue and excite with a modern but prestigious charm. The split-level entrance is the first thing that catches your eye giving entry and exit points on both levels. This residence was designed by the renowned architect Frank Murray along with much input from its owners. The house was constructed in 1999 by the highly regarded builders, Finlay's and incorporates a geothermal gas filled loop heating system with under floor heating on both levels which gives the property an eco-friendly appeal. The house is of twin leaf block construction with a concrete first floor, decorative granite windowsills to front and natural slated roof.
