Property Description


The Curragh 9 km, Newbridge 12 km, Kildare Town 10 km, Dublin Airport 45 mins, M7 & M9 Motorways 10 mins

Ardnalea is a truly spectacular and completely unique four-bedroom home situated on a private, enclosed site of 2.22 hectares (5.5 acres). Purchased in 2006 by the present owners who appointed Broadstone Architects to design the current house which was completed in 2008. No expense was spared in providing the ultimate in modern family living. Extending to approximately 371 sq.m (4,000 sq.ft) Ardnelea offers wonderfully bright generously proportioned accommodation, the quality of finish, the flair and style in this home must be seen to be really appreciated.

The brief from the owners when working on the design was to construct a contemporary house bearing in mind the traditional Irish farmhouse and the surrounding landscape. The completed design certainly achieves this where the old is clearly visible in the new.

Thick, white rendered walls recall the lime – washed stone of old farmhouses along with the barn-like semi- barrel structure with its copper roofing material inspired by the corrugated metal roofing long used on Irish barns.

The property is approached via electric gates leading to a sweeping tree -lined post and railed avenue. The beautifully appointed and stunningly presented light infused accommodation flows seamlessly from the impressive high entrance hallway leading to the Western wing which accommodates, within high vaulted ceilings, living and dining areas that avail of panoramic views to the south and west through large windows and glazed doors opening out onto terraces extending into the landscape.

The kitchen is located centrally at the heart of the home and benefits from sun all day long.

The bedrooms are in a more secluded northeastern extension and although they benefit from views and light to the south and west, they are afforded privacy by a landscaped walled courtyard.

The interior is meticulously designed to create a seamless flow between rooms, offering tasteful design and high- quality finishes throughout.

Enclosure walls around the outdoor spaces mean they are shielded from view by any cars, passing through to the stables, paddocks, and horse training areas beyond the house.

The sale of Ardnalea provides an unrivalled opportunity to acquire an outstanding detached contemporary family home of style and distinction in a great location in the heart of County Kildare.
