Property Description

IMPOSING PERIOD RESIDENCE ON C. 9½ ACRES

DESCRIPTION:
Downings House is a charming Georgian two storey over basement residence extending to c. 7,250 sq.ft. (673.5 sq.m.). The original house was destroyed during the Battle of Prosperous in 1798 and subsequently rebuilt around 1800 with some wonderful period features including ornate cornicing, Adams fireplace, functional window shutters, original pitch pine floors, bow shaped winding staircase and 11/14 foot ceilings. The property was refurbished in the late 1980s having been rewired, re-roofed and plumbed with oil heating.

Approached through a recessed entrance with electric gates to a tree lined avenue up to the residence, which is a majestic home set amid mature gardens and an adjoining paddock offering a haven of peace and tranquillity. Separate to the house is a 2 bedroom guest cottage and some outbuildings (needing refurbishment). The house offers well proportioned light filled accommodation over 2 floors and a basement which is no longer in use but ideal for refurbishment. From the basement there is an old escape tunnel which leads out to the gardens with 3 cellar rooms off.

Situated on the outskirts of Prosperous Village with shops, schools, church, pubs, etc on your doorstep. The surrounding towns of Clane (5km), Sallins (9km), Naas (12km), Celbridge (17km) and Newbridge (18km) offer a wide variety of amenities and facilities with superb recreational facilities, restaurants and shopping within a 20 min drive.
