A secluded Georgian Estate in the heart of the Kildare countryside, surrounded by spectacular parklands only 19 miles from Dublin City Centre.
Furness is approached through stone piers along a tree lined avenue which sweeps around to the front of the house. Steeped in history, and standing as a wonderful example of Georgian architecture, Furness boasts well-proportioned and elegant receptionrooms that have retained their extensive period features. These include excellent ceiling heights, ornate cornicing, open period fireplaces, original wooden flooring and shuttered sash windows. This creates a very manageable family home and boutique estate in a magnificent parkland setting surrounded by numerous specimen trees. Like many Georgian villas, Furness is a wonderful house for entertaining on a grand scale with the floor plan flowing effortlessly throughout. Of particular note are both the drawing and dining rooms with spectacular views of the gardens and surrounding landscape.
Gardens and Grounds
Home to what is believed to be Kildare’s oldest yew tree, dating to circa 800 years, the gardens and grounds at Furness includes c. 34 acres of paddocks of excellent limestone soil, parkland, woodland and gardens which entirely hide the property from the outside world. A neverfailing stream runs through the grounds.
To the south of the main house lies the former stable yard which has recently had the walls and roof restored.
In the kitchen yard stand the picturesque original arched two-storey buildings which provide ample ancillary storage, and with relevant planning permissions could be converted into additional accommodation, offices or amenities.
With nine principal bedrooms in the main house, the guest accommodation in the north and south wings and the Apple House add another six bedrooms, allowing ample accommodation for a large number of family members, guests and staff. The three wings are designed to be self-contained, with metal fire doors separating them from the main house. They each have an electricity meter and water supply. This configuration provides for maximum flexibility for modern family living or the property would lend itself to a corporate headquarters, wedding venue or boutique guest house.
