Description

Behind hardwood security gates lies Cootamundra – a truly awe inspiring, architect designed family home. This substantial property, comprising 5/6 bedrooms with 4 ensuites, on glorious grounds is equally as impressive as it’s village of residence. Kilquade needing little introduction has retained its historical charm and is host to the famous Arboretum/ garden centre. The area is synonymous with tranquillity, rolling countryside and imposing standalone houses with picturesque gardens and impressive entrance walls and gates.

Built in 2003 by the current owners Cootamaundra comes to the market in impeccable condition with a distinct Australian flavour set against a backdrop of magical woodland which adds to its intriguing, mystical ambience.

Every inch of the accommodation has been carefully thought about and is so very practical for the modern day family. Built to exacting standards the clever design allows for the outside space to literally serve as additional rooms with access via most living spaces to lawns, decks and wrap around verandas. The layout of the reception rooms is ideal for both practical family life as well as entertaining. There is an additional games room to the rear of the property with direct access out to the veranda. The boot room/utility room is bigger than most kitchens, there are two master bedrooms and the reception hall resembles that found in a country estate complete with welcoming fireplace.

Enviable features include, underfloor heating, central vacuum system, centralised audio system and last but by no means least, a solid white oak kitchen designed by the renowned  Andrew Ryan kitchens from Gorey.

If Cootamundra was a painting- It would be a masterpiece. Once you step inside this beautiful home the fairytale becomes reality. One can instantly imagine living here as the warmth and friendliness of the house literally wraps around you -welcoming you home! You will literally not want to leave.

Kilquade itself is located on the periphery of Greystones with its beaches, marina, Dart station and choice of renowned schools, award winning eateries and speciality stores.

Sport facilities and clubs are all nearby including golf courses at Druids Glen, Greystones, Delgany, Glen of The Downs and Powerscourt. Tennis, Soccer, GAA, Rugby, Equestrian stables and watersports are also closeby. This part of the world is home to Ireland’s most beautiful walks and heritage nature trials with mountains, forests, lakes and the coast itself to choose from.
