A secluded Georgian Estate in the heart of the Kildare countryside, surrounded by spectacular parklands only 19 miles from Dublin City Centre
Furness is approached through stone piers along a tree lined avenue which sweeps around to the front of the house. Steeped in history, and standing as a wonderful example of Georgian
architecture, Furness boasts well-proportioned and elegant receptionrooms that have retained their extensive period features. These include
excellent ceiling heights, ornate cornicing, open period fireplaces, original wooden flooring and shuttered sash windows. This creates a
very manageable family home and boutique estate in a magnificent parkland setting surrounded by numerous specimen trees. Like many Georgian villas, Furness is a wonderful house for
entertaining on a grand scale with the floor plan flowing effortlessly throughout. Of particular note are both the drawing and dining rooms with spectacular views of the gardens and surrounding landscape.
Gardens and Grounds
Home to what is believed to be Kildare's oldest yew tree, dating to circa 800 years, the gardens and grounds at Furness includes c. 34 acres of
paddocks of excellent limestone soil, parkland, woodland and gardens which entirely hide the property from the outside world. A neverfailing
stream runs through the grounds.
To the south of the main house lies the former stable yard which has recently had the walls and roof restored.
In the kitchen yard stand the picturesque original arched 2-storey buildings which provide ample ancillary storage, and with relevant planning permissions could be converted into additional
accommodation, offices or amenities.
