APPROACHED VIA A tree-lined driveway, Sherwood House is an instantly appealing property.

Located in Kilbride, Co Carlow, the four-bedroom residence is packed with character. It has been completely modernised and upgraded, yet still it retains much of its original farmhouse charm, making for a unique and beautiful residence.

A set of steps lead to the front door which opens through to the double-height hallway. This space immediately sets the tone for the rest of the house, with a beautiful chandelier and wood flooring here.

Sherwood House features three reception rooms, including two lounges and a dining room. Each of these rooms are tastefully decorated in a farmhouse style. The main lounge features a solid-fuel stove with a stone surround, a bay window dining area and three crystal chandeliers.

All four bedrooms – three double and one single – are on the first floor. The master suite is akin to what you’d find in a luxury hotel, complete with a dormer area where there’s a free-standing bath which overlooks the garden.

Outside, a stone cottage runs perpendicular to Sherwood House and would make for an ideal self-contained apartment, subject to relevant planning permission. To the rear, there’s a large two-storey barn which is fully insulated. There are multiple seating areas dotted throughout the mature gardens, while mature trees and hedges add a sense of privacy. 

Location-wise, the property is five minutes from Ballon village, 25 minutes from Carlow town and 90 minutes from Dublin city.
