GROWING KIDS, TEENS who demand privacy, or a wish for more space to work from home: there are many reasons why you might be considering upgrading to a larger house. Whatever your reasoning, this impeccably presented five bedroom, three bathroom detached home in Killenard, Co Laois could be the one for you.
On the market for €530,000, Carriglea offers a roomy 270 square metres, perfect for a bustling family looking for a hideaway in the country. In immaculate condition throughout, and with plenty of modern features already in place, all that’s left for the new owners to do is add furniture and their own creative stamp.
The entryway to 24 Carriglea creates a breathtaking first impression of this home. A sweeping mahogany staircase and balcony overlook the tiled entrance hall. Moving inside, the home has two reception rooms, both of which have impressive marble fireplaces.
The large kitchen has a classic farmhouse sink, marble worktops, a double oven and a large wine rack, ideal for entertaining or large family dinners.
Toward the back of the house, the utility room sports a new gas boiler with a sink for cleaning up particularly mucky messes. If you’ve discovered working from home in the past few years, the office has a built-in bespoke desk and a large wall unit.
Upstairs, the master bedroom suite has built-in wardrobes and a walk-through dressing room with wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes. The dressing room leads to a large en suite shower room.
The main bathroom upstairs has a double vanity and a jacuzzi bath. Three double bedrooms are upstairs as well, and two of them share an en suite shower room.
There’s parking for multiple cars at Carriglea, plus a huge garden to the rear.
For lovers of the outdoors (and a little bit of luxury), The Heritage Golf and Spa Resort is just a short drive away, where you’ll find a championship golf course and driving range, a running track, gym, and swimming pool. The local town offers bars, restaurants, creche, primary school, a church and more.
