FOR THOSE ON the hunt for a large country home in walk-in condition, Beech Glebe in Straffan, Co Kildare may be one to add to the must-see list. Completely modernised throughout, it needs little or no renovating. 

Now on the market for €2 million, it’s also a home that offers endless entertainment, thanks to its gym and sauna, games room and bar. And with plenty of parking and an easily reached location, you’ll be in an ideal setup for hosting all those bar guests.

Spread over 5,367 sq ft, the home is kept clean-lined thanks to the storage that supports each room of this home. White walls and pristine solid wood flooring keep the large entrance hallway fresh.

Access to the paved areas surrounding the home is through a number of rooms on the ground floor, including the light-filled lounge. A large space with cleverly positioned lights and sliding doors, it connects to the other rooms on this level.

The kitchen island acts as an anchor that ensures a perfectly zoned open plan space. The tiled floor, downlights, pendants and Aga cooker (included in the sale) make this space as hard-working as it is atmospheric.

Fisher and Paykel, Whirlpool and Neff appliances up the ante even further. From the dining area, sliding doors also lead to the patio area for al fresco dining.


Upstairs, the three large double bedrooms all have impressive walk-in wardrobes and en suite bathrooms, while the master bedroom leads to a balcony that looks over the lawn.

The basement might just be a host’s dream. A large living room with an open fire place, as well as a games room, gym and sauna room, WC and a changing room means guests will have plenty to do.

Solid wood floors cover the games room, which is also home to the bar and a video projector.

Outside, you’ll find plenty of parking space, plus manicured lawns that reach from the front to the back. A steel garden shed and lots of hedging mean plenty of privacy and storage space too.

It’s also within walking distance of the village of Straffan, and has easy access to plenty of amenities, promoting the right balance of privacy and community spirit.

Beech Glebe, Straffan, Co Kildare is on sale for €2,000,000 through Coonan Property via Daft.ie.
