County Kildare is considered to be one of Ireland's most desirable counties to live in and is very much associated with the equine industry. Located to the south west of the capital and accessed along the seamless N7/M7, it gives easy access to both Dublin city and airport and also to the south
and south west amidst some of the best-connected motorways in the country. It is synonymous with the international bloodstock industry, famous for its world renowned stud farms and busy racing calendar.
The Curragh Racecourse (16 km) is one of the finest racetracks in the world. Home of The Classics, it is steeped in history and tradition where racing dates back to the 1720's. Punchestown, home of Irish national hunt racing, and Naas racetracks are both within 10 kilometres of the property. It is also home to The Irish National Stud together with The Japanese Gardens and St. Fiachra's Garden.
Naas and Kilcullen are two vibrant neighbouring towns with an abundance of quality restaurants, hotels and pubs. Naas offers a comprehensive range of amenities including supermarkets and a variety of boutique shops and retail stores. Kilcullen is home to the famous Nolan's Butchers, Berneys Saddlery and Peacocke's handmade shoe/boot shop.
While Hazelwilliam Stud occupies a private position within rural County Kildare, a key feature of the property is its accessibility, being about 9 kilometres from the M7 (Dublin � Limerick road) and about 10 kilometres from the M9 (Dublin � Waterford road). It sits between the towns of Naas (8 km) and Ballymore Eustace (5.5km) and is just 6.5km from Punchestown Racecourse and event centre.
The property is well situated for mainline and commuter trains north to Dublin, to the southeast and southwest, being 12 kilometres from Sallins and 22 kilometres from Kildare. Dublin Airport is 51 kilometres distant (via N7/M50). The surrounding area caters for a wide range of amenities including rugby, GAA, soccer and tennis to name a few. Golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with the championship course at the K Club (20 km), home to the Ryder Cup in 2006, Tulfarris Golf Club (12 km) and Naas Golf Club (14 km) just a short drive away.
There is a variety of primary and secondary schools available in the area.
Hazelwilliam Stud is a superbly located property set on an extremely private site with a beautiful outlook over the rolling countryside.
Entered through a bell-mouthed entrance with large wooden gates, the property is accessed via an attractive sweeping driveway flanked by lawns and stud railed paddocks and leads to a parking area at the front of the house.
Constructed in 2004/2005, Hazelwilliam is a substantial modern style country residence. It is laid out over two storeys and is of generous and elegant proportions, as shown on the accompanying plans. The house has been the subject of a recent refurbishment that now affords the opportunity for the buyer to fit it out internally and put his or her own personal touches to it.
On the ground floor, the property consists of a spacious reception hall with four principal reception rooms off, a kitchen/breakfast room, sunroom, study, office, 2 guest WC's, utility and boiler room. The bedroom accommodation, which is particularly spacious, on the first floor comprises a large
bright landing, a master bedroom suite with a kitchenette and walk in wardrobe. There are five additional bedrooms, three of which are en suite and a family bathroom.
Gardens & Grounds
The house sits amidst mature gardens and grounds, which are predominantly laid to lawn. There are numerous stud railed grass paddocks situated either side of the driveway and behind the garden. The property sits on about 34 acres / 14 hectares in total.
Situated to the north of the property is an eight bay, steel frame shed with a concrete floor and double sliding doors at each end. The shed was previously used as a stable barn with access to water and plumbing for a toilet.
