OFTENTIMES IT’S EASY to distinguish the stand-out feature of a property, but with Cramersvalley in Brannockstown, Co Kildare there’s quite a few to choose from.

Firstly, it boasts its own tennis court and sports pitch. It sits on 36 acres of grounds, with a mixture of mature trees, woodlands and walks, plus 500m of riverfront of the River Liffey. Oh, and there’s a one-acre private island in the middle of the river as part of the sale.

The property itself was built in 2003, yet features the charming and welcoming interior of a much older residence. An entrance porch leads to a bright stone-tiled hall with an open fireplace and seating areas. 

Three formal rooms are accessed from here; a sitting room, dining room and drawing room. Each room features picture windows and French doors which flood the space with light and give access to the patio area, while the dining room and sitting room are interconnected, making for the ideal space to entertain.

The open plan kitchen and breakfast room is located to the left of the hall and includes fitted units, a Belfast sink and centre island. A utility room is positioned to the side, while a study with attractive wooden bookshelves is across the hall.

A guest bedroom wing completes the ground floor, comprising two bedrooms and two en-suite bathrooms. Moving upstairs, a large arched window overlooks the beautiful grounds and fills the landing area with light.

Equestrian enthusiasts will appreciate the inclusion of a stable yard with eight stables, a sand area, tack room, hay barn and horse walker. The property is approached via a sweeping driveway, with oak, ask, beech and willow trees throughout. 


Cramersvalley is a 20-minute walk from Brannockstown village, where there’s a national school. The nearby towns of Kilcullen, Naas and Newbridge provide further options and amenities. If you fancy driving to the capital, the journey to the city centre should take about an hour.
