This most appealing property was built on lands purchased from the nearby Palladian mansion, Bishopscourt House. It is approached via electronic gates opening to a flowing driveway. It boasts many fine features including extremely spacious accommodation, stunning mature gardens overlooking the surrounding countryside and an impressive conservatory, not to mention the bar and games room which has been authentically fitted out, so that you feel like you are truly in your local!
The bright and spacious living accommodation is comprised of a large entrance hallway, living room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, family room, office, bar/games room, conservatory, 2 large bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a family bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs you will find 3 additional spacious bedrooms (1 en-suite with a walk-in wardrobe) and another family bathroom. A double-garage with loft provides masses of additional storage space.
Castlewarden straddles the Dublin/Kildare border. It is famous for its association with Arthur Guinness who is buried in the nearby Oughterard graveyard. It boasts a pony and country club, and a parkland golf course of championship standard. It is convenient to the shops in Kill village and the shopping centres in both Naas and Dublin, as well as to attractions like the K-Club, Goffs, Puchestown Racecourse and Baldonnell Aerodrome. Most conveniently, the school bus from the new Kill National School stops right outside the gate, providing free pick-up and drop-back for primary school children.
The large, bright and completely private grounds extending c.0.6 acre, are landscaped and beautifully maintained with manicured lawns, unique flower beds and a colourful variety of plants. To the front there is a sweeping driveway behind iron railings with classic, granite gate-piers topped with animal finials. To the rear two bright patio areas, with views of the surrounding countryside, face a large lawn surrounded by mature hedging. For the children there is a basketball hoop on the gable end of the garage and a mature oak tree with a swing.
