These have wonderful proportions and marvellous views of the surrounding private grounds. Designed to quietly impress, while still being an exceptionally relaxing space in which to live, it is a house both for entertaining, and for family life. An entrance porch leads to a very spacious stone-tiled hall with a welcoming open fire and sitting areas. This leads to a trio of formal rooms: a sitting room, dining room and drawing room, all with French window access to the large patio area. Across the hallway, there is a very generous and well-appointed kitchen / breakfast room, with a utility room off with access to the garden and stable yard. The kitchen includes fitted units, Belfast sink, kitchen island and professional-standard oven and hob. A study is located across from the kitchen. Also, on the ground floor is a guest bedroom wing, with two bedrooms, both of them en-suite. One of the bedrooms has a lovely bay window, while the other is triple aspect. The stairs have a beautiful arched window on the return, which floods the hall and landing with light and sunshine with views over the gardens and paddocks. Upstairs are four more bedrooms, three of which are en-suite and a family bathroom. The master suite itself has its own balcony, a very large dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. There is also an attic room at the very top. Overall, the house has been exceptionally sensitively and cleverly designed, giving it a timeless aspect, but offering every contemporary amenity for how we can best live today. Two bedroom apartment A separate two-bedroom apartment with a cosy solid-fuel stove, looks out onto the stable yard, and so would make for ideal staff quarters, a space for horse lovers, or an Air BnB with a difference. Stable yard The stable yard is on a quadrangle and comprises of eight stables and tack room. Leading directly to the sand arena. Gardens and grounds The c. 14ha(36 acres) of grounds at Cramersvalley are a glorious mixture of mature trees, woodlands with walks, formal gardens, paddocks, and 500 metres of river front with its own fishing. There is even a one-acre private island in the middle of the Liffey as part of the property. A sweeping driveway, protected by security gates, leads you to the property itself, which is flanked by a beautifully laid out stable yard. Beyond this is an Astro turf tennis court, and paddocks, one of which is also set up as a sports pitch. There is a sand arena, and a horse walker and hay barn in a separate, second yard. A secondary entrance by the bridge gives additional access to both yards While the house was built this century, the grounds themselves are ancient, and include a deliciously hidden medieval motte in the heart of the woodlands. Private internal roadways link the different areas of the estate. Co Kildare is famed for its rich grasslands, with some of the most well-known stud farms in the country adjacent to Cramersvalley, making this the ideal spot for any equestrian enthusiast, or simply a lover of the best lush countryside that the heart of Ireland has to offer.
