THERE’S NO DENYING that the flexibility remote and hybrid working has brought us in the last two years has made many of us re-evaluate our lives and seek out new options – particularly when it comes to where to live and how much space we need.
Whether you’re already the horsey type or have been nurturing a new hobby in recent times, take a look at this home that sits just 2km outside Kildare town. This three-bedder is surrounded with everything an equestrian enthusiast needs, from a paddock and a sand arena to stables and and American barn that’s home to a tack room and feed room.
Recently refurbished and extended, it’s now on the market for €390,000.
The renovation saw the addition of great quality fixtures and fittings that provide the perfect backdrop for any interior design changes. With its dual central heating and PVC doors for extra insulation, the house has a healthy BER of C3, which means any changes will be mostly aesthetic.
The main social space in this roomy home is the large open plan kitchen, dining and living room that’s well-zoned thanks to the wood floors in the lounge that lead to tiled floors of the kitchen. The kitchen units are in good nick and the integrated appliances ensure everything is ready to go.
The lounge area is kept cosy with the brick surround fireplace that’s home to a wood burning stove that’s connected to the back boiler.
There may only be one bathroom in this home, but with main bedroom having a direct connection to it, it’s almost like it has en suite. Two more generously-sized bedrooms access it from the hallway.
Outside, the home, surrounding outhouses and amenities are protected by electric gates and approached by a gravel driveway. The aerial shots might prove that this place is the horse-lover’s dream, but even if you’re not equine inclined – and just fancy the space – this is a great option for those who like the idea of country life without the isolation.
Fennor, Kildare, Co Kildare is on the market for €390,000 through McWey Auctioneers.
