The scene is set as you approach ‘Stone Lodge’ along a country road full of life and variety. Accessed via electric gates, the house sits proudly, centre stage amongst c. 1.1 acres of mature gardens. Time and care have been poured into creating different zones in the gardens, each of which offers a new adventure and floral habitat to owners and lucky visitors to the property. Lawn areas with a magnificent selection of colour, fruit and attracted wildlife is provided by cherry blossom, ornamental crabapple, Norwegian variegated maple, beech and copper beech, apple, conference pear, lavender, chestnut and mountain ash trees amongst others. This colourful theme continues in the glasshouse where zucchini, tomatoes, blackcurrants, raspberries and gooseberries live. This sense of real connection to the land and a display of what it can offer is shown here at Stone Lodge and acts as a wonderful legacy to the current owners.
The property is further complimented by an accessible location in between the M7 and M9 allowing easy access to Kilkenny, Portlaoise, Carlow, Naas, Newbridge and Athy close by and Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Waterford beyond. Connectivity to social and sporting pursuits is also excellent as the property enjoys easy access to the main artery roads. This will be a particular attraction for families and adds yet further to the appeal of this property.
The gardens and their potential are certainly an exciting treat and give suggestion to the luxury of space and warmth within this five bedroom detached dormer home. The possibilities allowed with such a number of multi-functional rooms both next to and removed from the main heart of the home include working from home, au pair accommodation and home gym/ yoga/ art studios.
