BUILT IN 2002, Beechwood is an ace property located on five-and-a-half acres of land which includes a tennis court and putting green.

Also boasting a games room and wine cellar, it’s clear that no expense was spared when it came to building Beechwood. The residence is part of an exclusive development of just four homes on the Castledillon Road in Straffan, Co Kildare and spans an impressive 4,149 sq ft.

Making a lasting impression, the entrance hall is circular in shape and features a sky light, spotlights and a marble floor. There’s plenty of space to entertain (and unwind) at Beechwood, with a drawing room, dining room and TV room on the ground floor.

Continuing down the hallway, the kitchen holds pride of place as the heart of the home. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the landscaped gardens, the outdoors are brought in. In here, any keen home cook is sure to make good use of the AGA, while the granite worktop on the centre island provides plenty of space to prepare meals. 

A dual aspect home office, large double guest room (featuring a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom), utility room and bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Moving onto the next level, there’s a spacious games room with vaulted ceilings and Velux windows, with ample space for a pool table, storage and sofa. There’s access to the rear patio from here, while a study and bathroom complete this wing of the home. 

Beechwood features four bedrooms on the first floor, with a mezzanine level overlooking the kitchen. The master bedroom enjoys views of the surrounding countryside, as well as a walk-in-wardrobe and large en-suite bathroom.

Two bedrooms share an en-suite bathroom, while the remaining bedroom features its own en-suite bathroom and built-in wardrobes.

If you’re partial to a glass of wine from time to time, the property’s temperature-controlled wine cellar is sure to impress. Adjacent to the wine cellar is a storage room, which has potential to be used as a home gym, and access to the triple garage.

A decking area to the rear of the property makes for the ideal location for al-fresco dining, while there’s also a greenhouse, orchard and stone water feature on the grounds, plus space for stables.
