IF YOU’VE EVER fancied living like a royal, this €1.95 million mansion in Co Kildare might be the closest you’ll get.

With an exterior combining elements of house and castle, it’s clear that this is no ordinary property. The period-style residence, located just minutes from Straffan village, spans an incredible 7,000 sq ft.

Outside, it sits on one acre of landscaped gardens and features a 1,000 sq ft balcony with views over a 240-acre stud farm. If that’s not enough space, up to eight acres of land is available with the purchase.

Inside, the home oozes luxury throughout. Each room is finished with creme marfil marble floors, wood panelled walls and high ceilings. Thinking that the marble floors will be cold on tired feet? Fear not, as there’s underfloor heating throughout the house, plus fireplaces in the living areas.

Adding to the feeling of spaciousness, one floor enjoys an open-plan design with large living areas, sash windows and a neutral design with gold accents.

It’s not everyone’s favourite thing to do, but if you enjoy hosting dinner parties for every occasion, you’re in luck. The kitchen, living and dining area expands to a massive 1,300 sq ft (around the size of a three-bedroom house), while the balcony extends this section of the home further.

Those who work from home are sure to appreciate the inclusion of an office, which could also serve as nanny quarters thanks to its separate entrance.

Moving on to the bedrooms, guests and residents alike will be spoiled for choice with 10 to choose from. All bedrooms except for one are double rooms with en-suite bathrooms, while there are two master bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes a la Carrie Bradshaw.

The property is set back from the main Straffan/Maynooth road, providing a sense of privacy and tranquillity while still being just a 20-minute stroll from Straffan village. With The K Club less than a five-minute drive away, golf enthusiasts are sure to be kept busy.

Moving slightly further afield, Maynooth town is a quick 10-minute drive away, with a rail service running from here to Dublin city centre. The drive to the heart of the capital should take about 50 minutes, while jet-setters can be at Dublin Airport in 40 minutes.

This 10-bed property at Barberstown Upper, Straffan, Co Kildare is on the market for the advised minimum value of €1,950,000 through Michael Geraghty via Daft.ie.
