This nine-bed Kildare home with gate lodge, tennis court and sauna is on the market for €3 million

Covering a mind-boggling 10,570 square feet, you could imagine getting lost in this grand, sprawling home.

At some point over the last 13 months you’ve probably gotten sick of whoever you live with, and perhaps fantasised about having a home so large that you could find a quiet space where they wouldn’t be able to find you for a while.

Barretstown House outside Newbridge is a house that would easily let you do just that. With nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an orangery, gym, and separate gate lodge to name just a few of its features, any new owner could never complain of being short on space.

Barretstown House

You enter the home into a particularly large hallway, with several sections leading to different areas of the house. There is a library, study, bar and games room towards the front of the house, while the grand drawing room features a rare original barrel ceiling with decorative plasterwork, a marble fireplace, and double doors opening out to a terrace.

The dining room features an original stone fireplace which still has its original brass fire irons and fittings, while a large bay window looks out to the nearby river Liffey.

Barretstown House

There is a well-sized kitchen and breakfast room, while an orangery with octagonal seating area is found at the back of the house. A gym and sauna, laundry room, wine-cellar and boot room all sit together at the back of the house on this level.

An original oak staircase leads upstairs to a gallery with an original hand painted glass ceiling. On this level are nine bedrooms, five of which are ensuite, as well as a TV room, additional study and linen room. 

Outside, the gardens have been well-maintained, and include many beautiful mature trees. There is a triple garage that sits across a cobbled courtyard from the house, as well as a tennis court.

There is a gate lodge that could be used as additional accommodation, with a living room, kitchen, two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a fenced garden.

Just four kilometres from Newbridge and 25 kilometres from Dublin, this home also has the best of both worlds: the space and access to nature a rural home affords, within easy access of amenities.
