Kilkea Bridge Cottage is within the picturesque village of Kilkea in the heart of County Kildare. The residence is located just beside Kilkea Castle and within walking distance of both entrances. Kilkea Castle is 140-bedroom resort located on approx. 180 acres of beautiful countryside lands that include woodlands, private gardens, and grounds and an 18-hole championship golf course. With a history dating back to 1180, Kilkea Castle, now a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts L.V.X Collection, captures the mystical charm of a 12th Century majestic castle with the overwhelming allure of timeless sophistication and style. Kilkea Castle is the oldest continuously lived in castle in Ireland.
Kilkea Bridge Cottage is a beautifully presented home with an abundance of light throughout that would cater for all types of buyers. The entrance lobby is bright and spacious and is a very welcoming area with an Italian stone floor. This leads to the light filled glass corridor linking the living and sleeping quarters with floor to ceiling windows that integrates the courtyard to the rear into the residence. There is a very warm feeling in the hall and these spaces are at the heart of the home. To the left is the drawing room and with dual elevation to the front and side, this room is also bright and is perfect for entertaining or relaxing in. The floors are solid wood, and the feature fireplace adds to the character of this charming room.
The kitchen is where the everyday family living takes place. There is ample storage with a substantial island convenient to the breakfast area. The feature fireplace from the drawing room also takes centre stage of the family space in the kitchen. The dining room just off the kitchen is perfect for dinners and formal events and the office to the rear is ideal for those looking to work from home. Both the kitchen and dining room link magnificently with the garden through double doors making both the courtyard and patio areas extensions of the living space and perfect for the spring and summer evenings. To the rear of the kitchen is a pantry and utility area.
The bedrooms are accessed through the hall where the wonderful interior finish continues. There are 4 double bedrooms in total with 2 ensuites. The master bedroom is a large space that incorporates a dressing area with doors leading out the courtyard making it a perfect space for a morning coffee before starting the day. A large family bathroom completes this part of the house.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The gardens and grounds at Kilkea Bridge Cottage have been professionally landscaped and very well maintained by the current owners. The house links seamlessly with the gardens, this being exemplified not only by the abundance of windows offering a plenitude of sunlight. The gardens are extremely private and secure with mature hedging along the boundary to the front and side. The courtyard as well as the patio to the rear is perfect for entertaining all year around and a wonderful area for a summer bbq. There is also a large garage/workshop that is well maintained and would be suitable for use as a home office/studio with some minor alterations.
