A True Front Runner in its Class in County Kildare
Coonan Property and Goffs Property are honoured to present this breath-taking residence to the market. Quietly resting on its elevated site in the Boston Hill area, this fantastic house is a gleaming example of contemporary living fit for a King. As you drive through the gated entrance and along the extensive avenue you are sure to fall in love with the idyllic lifestyle on offer in a flying change.
A home of champions, in more ways than one, the property, currently owned by the recently retired race horse trainer Tom Taaffe along with his wife Elaine, Portree House has 43 acres of post and rail fenced land. This land is divided between paddocks, gallops, stables, and mature gardens. The property has two all-weather gallops, one extending to one-mile with a four furlong uphill straight. Both suitable for use at all levels of equestrian pursuits.
The location is superb, with staggering countryside views as far as the eye can see and yet Ardclough and Straffan are mere minutes away. Every amenity you would need is within reach including excellent schools, shops, banks, supermarkets, hotels, resorts, and fine dining venues. Dublin airport and Dublin City Centre are both very accessible via the M4 and M7 Motorways. The Curragh, Punchestown and Naas Racecourses are all within a short driving distance. If horses are your life, then this is the right place for you, if not, there are a multitude of uses for this beautiful home and property.
The residence itself is in magnificent condition and is extremely well placed, with visibility over the land and for miles around. It boasts four bedrooms and extends to an impressive 2,900 sq. ft. The features speak to quality and elegance. From the main hall, which wows, showcasing marble flooring and a feature marble staircase, to the luxurious master suite, which has a mezzanine floor and walk in dressing area and opens out onto a balcony with panoramic views. Style oozes throughout the home which also has a beautiful, paved patio area to the south, ideal for entertaining or just relaxing and enjoying the vista.
This astounding property really is the gold standard in property and must be seen to be appreciated fully. The property is for sale by Private Treaty with an asking price of €2,300,000.
