FOR HORSEY TYPES and, indeed, anyone with an interest in racing, putting down roots in Co Kildare is bound to be a smart move.

Just 6 km from the Curragh, the centre of Ireland’s horse racing industry, is Harefield, a large family home that’s sure to offer luxury countryside living, a sense of community and easy access to surrounding large towns and cities. 

Now on the market for €995,000 and spanning 576 m², this six-bedroom, seven bathroom home is sure to tick a lot of boxes for those who enjoy regularly hosting friends and extended family.

The finishes and fittings in this home leave little to think about when it comes to any luxury upgrades the next owner might have on their wish list, too. Underfloor heating, a central vacuum system and a sound system that works throughout the house, is a good indication that expenses weren’t spared when Harefield was being built ten years ago.

The main social spot of this home is an open plan kitchen, living and dining area that is well zoned and has a pristine tiled floor. The bespoke kitchen with all integrated appliances and an adjoining pantry is sure to make meal prep a joy.

Other rooms designed to ensure a smoothly run household include a utility room and a garage, accessed from the hall, that has space for two cars.

Three sets of sliding doors lead from the open-plan living space to the patio, but this isn’t the only space to socialise in. There are two more living rooms that sit on either side of the hall. The first has a games room area while the second is a little smaller and is used as a cinema room.

The bar also has double doors that lead to the the large south facing patio area with a covered alcove. The land surrounding Harefield is vast and so offers ample opportunity when it comes to how it could be enjoyed. Currently, it’s also home to a stud railed paddock and a manicured garden.

Five of the six bedrooms are on the first floor, and they have an en suite bathroom each while some also have roomy walk-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has a balcony for taking in the countryside views.

The sixth bedroom, on the top floor, may not have its own bathroom but it does have the whole floor to itself, so it’s spacious and private.

CCTV and electric gates that open onto an avenue that leads up to the house add to the sense of safety many people want when living in a countryside setting.
