“Red House” Portgloriam, Kilcock, Co. Kildare – Bespoke residence in lakeside setting on c. 19.6 Acres
Poetic is the word to describe this listing. Coonan Property are honoured to present the “Red House” to the market. A short distance from the village of Kilcock you will find the entrance to a plot where design, imagination and intuition have powerfully combined to give a stunning property. The Red House is a listing that will give its purchaser everything desired from a home, nestled within its very own natural retreat. This breath-taking property is on the market with a guide price of €1,300,000.
Situated on over 19 acres of land just 3km from Kilcock, the location of the property is fantastic. All the amenities of Kilcock and nearby Maynooth are on the doorstep and yet Dublin is a short journey away either by rail, bus, or car, helping you to sail through the commute, if necessary. Whether you enjoy sports such as Rugby, GAA or even Canoe Polo for example, Kilcock has something for you. With plenty of health and leisure facilities in the area alongside cafés, restaurants, hotels, and bars, this is a truly thriving and friendly community.
We honestly feel however, that you may not want to leave the peace and seclusion of your own sanctuary if you live in the Red House. Once you arrive down the sweeping driveway you will find yourself in truly magical surroundings. The house rests quietly, reflected by the 3-acre lake and absorbing the sunlight throughout the day. Trees from every part of the globe can be found throughout this oasis including awe inspiring red alders from North America and the tranquil effects of nature are apparent from the first breath on the property. The setting is simply amazing in every season.
The residence itself is a bespoke home which is intuitively and creatively designed to make the most of its setting allowing light in but using techniques that promote heat gain during winter but cool the house in summer. It beautifully presents three bedrooms and a library and extends to over 3,000 sq. ft. The master faces east, making the most of the rising sun, and the front of the property faces south allowing light in all day. There is a well-designed overhanging balcony which enhances the enjoyment of the stunning views and yet cleverly protects from the elements as needed. The beauty of wood is brought through internally with Austrian timber windows and beautiful solid wood doors and staircase exuding excellent quality and elegant simplicity throughout the home. This property has every modern convenience and acres of space inside and out but it really needs to be felt to be understood and is well worth a view. Pure poetry in motion.
