Truly impressive yet totally welcoming, both generous and beautiful, Winterwood offers you the opportunity to own a signature home in the grounds of historic Adare Manor. Scheduled to host the 2027 Ryder Cup, Adare Manor has recently completed a multi million euro renovation, making it one of the most magnificent hotels in Ireland, and in the world right on your doorstep. Winterwood, positioned on a private 3.4 acre site is part of a small, secure gated enclave in the lush and mature Adare Manor parklands. Laid out over three floors, the house brilliantly combines notable entertaining spaces, with cosy family rooms, ideal for relaxing together. Set at the heart of its own grounds, in which established planting offers complete privacy, the design of Winterwood opens the house to the gardens, with wrap-around patios and an enclosed courtyard, so that it is truly a house to enjoy to the full in all seasons. Built in 2004, and refurbished in 2013, Winterwood has exceptional workmanship and materials throughout, including hand carved Brazillian mahogany doors, solid wood and marble floors, magnificent bespoke Waterford Crystal chandeliers, fireplaces from Chesney of London, and stoves by Stovax. The generous yet eminently manageable layout also offers exceptional flexibility, whether you are planning to make Winterwood your year round home, or very special retreat. You have room to create staff quarters or a home office suite, or find space for the extended family. Add the proximity to Shannon Airport, 24 hour security, and the amenities of your nearest neighbours at Adare Manor, and you have a unique opportunity to enjoy this very special place: somewhere to dream of returning to, should you be able to tear yourself away. The house at Winterwood reaches out to welcome you, as a pair of wings flank the central entrance hall. This first space greets you and sets the scene with its magnificent triple height atrium, top-lit by a stained glass cupola and hung with a bespoke chandelier. Twin staircases sweep up to meet, joining a first floor gallery, off which you have five large and well appointed en-suite bedrooms. Above are three more bedrooms, one currently in use as a studio. Remaining on the ground floor, there are a pair of impressive and elegantly proportioned reception rooms. Both the sitting room and dining room have solid wood floors, beautiful fireplaces and chandeliers. Tall graceful windows give gorgeous views of your grounds. The family room is a more intimate space, ideal for cosy evenings enjoyed together. Also opening off the central hall, the kitchen / breakfast room is a lovely light-filled space with a central island, La Cornue range cooker, chandeliers, and all the storage space you, or a visiting chef may wish for. There is a spacious pantry and a utility room adjacent to this. The sun room is another delicious spot, again enabling you to enjoy the gardens in all weathers. Also on the ground floor find a generous office and library area, plus a gym, sauna and spa room. There are also plant rooms and laundry services at this level, usefully separated from the main family and entertaining areas. Go down a level to enjoy a generous wine cellar, plus a games room and bar area, meaning that Winterwood is also an ideal place to host large parties, whether for business, pleasure or a very satisfying combination of both. The small gated enclave of which Winterwood is part enjoys 24 hour security, as well as the peace and quiet of its location in the grounds of Adare Manor. The house itself is set at the heart of your own c3.5 acres of mature grounds, including formal gardens, an orchard and woodlands. These are bounded by lovely granite walls, hedges and mature screening trees. There is ample parking to the front of the house, as well as a courtyard to one side, so that you can put your car away on arrival, and forget about travelling for a while, now that you are home. This also makes for a useful service entrance when entertaining at scale. Patios wrap around the house, offering sheltered spots, with fountains, elegant garden sculpture, topiary, low walls and planted borders. There is a barbeque area, and more seating spots. Lawns flow from these areas, to meet a woodland, in which the previous owners have planted three hundred new trees. Paths meander throughout the site. The orchard is another lovely spot, particularly at apple blossom time, and includes a range of fruit trees. Should you find the golf and other amenities of Adare Manor still not enough, you have the space here to create your own tennis court. Offering unrivalled security and privacy, exceptional peace and tranquillity, and all the convenience of a fully serviced site, Winterwood is a wonderful place to live or return to, all year round. Built on the grounds of Adare Manor, one of Ireland s finest historic five star luxury hotels, Winterwood is in an ideal location to enjoy all the amenities this glorious place has to offer. Set in a private enclave within the Manor s extensive grounds, Winterwood is also adjacent to the pretty, historic village of Adare with its antique shops, caf s, bars and restaurants. It also enjoys enjoying international connections via nearby Shannon Airport.
