Built in the year of 2000, this property nestles into the hillside that overlooks a large paddock with a stable yard comprising of 3 loose boxes, a tack room and garage with roller doors. A short distance from the property is an outdoor arena with a sand base. This property is positioned adjacent to the famous leafy loop walk that connects to an 8 mile circuit without roadwork, that is ideal for both canine and equine activities. From the moment you step inside this home, the use and mix of traditional materials and contemporary design, with high ceiling heights, exposed stone walls, polished timber floors, split level design, curved passages, exposed beams, and a flow of light through each living area gives a warm and inviting atmosphere to this home. Ashfield House represents a paragon of rural peace and tranquility and is most private and protected from the public road by a long sweeping graveled avenue with lighting lamps, grassy paddocks, mature trees, stone wall entrance and wooden fencing. Easily accessible to Dublin City and Airport with the M7 Motorway only a 15 minute drive, brings the capital city to a commuting distance of a 45 minute drive. The historic and picturesque town of Durrow stands in all its growth with its ever growing population and the famous Castle Durrow, that is an International known Hotel. With 5 rivers on its doorstep, Durrow has a great angling community famed for its wild brown trout and course fishing rivers, which include the River Nore, Erkina, Goul, Gully and Ovey. Other attractions to include is the well known Bobs Bar that is situated on the banks of the Erkina River, with its old style, historic feel that dates back to 1832, along with its club of High Nelly Bikes and not to forget to mention the popular Scare Crow Festival that takes place every summer, certainly brings tourists from all over and puts Durrow on the map, and a community that people want to live in. There are many golf courses close by to include The Heritage Championship Golf Course in Killenard, Abbeyleix, Rathdowney, Mountrath, & Kilkenny Golf Course. Location is second to none and is ideally located for people that want the country lifestyle, but still want to be in easy reach of all amenities.
