The Gardeners, Mount Henry, Killenard. With a name this evocative, viewers can well expect a delightful and interesting home. You can be sure this architectural gem will not disappoint, and even exceed your wildest imaginations.

A jaw-droppingly beautiful fusion of an old stone period house and an architecturally designed modern residence, The Gardeners blends two eras seamlessly to create a home of distinguished charm and extensive accommodation.

Approached through a curved driveway, the property immediately excites. The pretty facade overlooking an attractive front lawn with splatters of snowdrops and daffodils announces a home of distinction.

The accommodation is extensive stretching to a massive 270 Sq. Metres. The welcoming entrance hall with its sun-drenched galleried landing leads to a magnificent kitchen/ diningroom with large picture windows overlooking the front lawn and on across the rolling countryside. There is a superb pantry and utility space off the kitchen.

There are two further reception rooms on the ground floor. The sitting room is attractive in its layout with a central fireplace and two distinctive relaxing spaces. The second reception room could easily double as a guest bedroom or a large home office or fifth bedroom.

There is a guest WC off the entrance hall.

On the first floor there are four excellent double bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys a spacious walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom.

The family bathroom concludes the first-floor accommodation.

Set against a magnificent 19th century walled garden and with a large paddock to the side, The Gardeners has a true Beatrix Potter vibe. The feeling in the home is warm and welcoming. The house has many happy memories of good family times, of birthdays and anniversaries, a wedding feast, and many gatherings of friends and families.

Extending to 1.66 acres of beautiful grounds in the popular village of Killenard, The Gardeners is a homestead, a mini farm, where there have been goats, chickens, turkeys, rabbits and bees. There are sheds for animals, and a shed for tools. In the polytunnel, all sorts of vegetables have been grown to feed the family, lettuce, carrots, spinach, tomatoes, celery, kale, chard, potatoes, and beautiful strawberries for the summer. Plenty of herbs grow easily, for wonderful cooking and hearty meals. There is a bed of autumn raspberries, which will provide abundant fruit all through the autumn, until the frost returns around the end of October.

Killenard is the rarest of gems, a modern yet traditional village, with an excellent primary school, shop, restaurants, churches and of course The magnificent Heritage Golf and Spa Resort with its world class spa, gym, pool and walking track all set around the Seve Ballesteros designed Championship golf course; and all within walking distance of The Gardeners.

Killenard is a spectacular idyll located just 40 minutes from Dublin. Everything is on your doorstep. Portarlington with an excellent train station, modern supermarkets and secondary school is a little over 5 minutes away. With the M7 just 10 minutes away and Kildare Village outlet shopping reachable in 15. Emo court and gardens are just 5 minutes away.
