A PRICE in excess of €4.5 million is being sought for Michael Kinane’s spectacular Punchestown residence and lands at Eadling House, which has been placed on the market with Coonan Property.

The 81.5 acre site and residence will be auctioned at 3pm on Wednesday, June 26th, in Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas.

Set well back from the road and surrounded by secluded manicured gardens, the detached residence sits on top quality land and the property boasts high quality equestrian facilities.

Apart from the main residence, gardens, equestrian facilities and lands, there are two single storey dwellings also included.

Located just off the Blessington Road, Eadling House is nestled beside Punchestown Racecourse.

The main residence spans just under 9,000 sq.ft and has five large bedrooms, all of which are en-suite. The fireplaces have cast iron insets (gas), and other notable features inside include the cornicing, ceiling roses, solid oak flooring, mosaic tiling and dado rails.

Outside there are mature gardens which offer privacy and a large patio.

Eadling House also contains a spring-fed lake and full-sized tennis courts.

The property has two entrances, one to the main house and the second to the yard, and a very good road network throughout. The land is in six divisions that are mostly stud fenced and have extensive road frontage, together with some of the boundary running along the Morell River.

In the yard there is an American barn that contains 13 loose boxes, a tack room with toilet and kitchen, plus feed room. There is also a sand arena, an indoor lunging arena, a six-bay indoor horse walker, a five-bay hay shed, a machinery shed and cattle handling facilities.

The bungalow is a four-bedroom home extending to 1,715 sq.ft. and the gate lodge is a two-bedroom home covering 1,245 sq.ft.

Will Coonan of Coonan Property commented: “This impressive property is something very special and is very attractive due to its acreage and location within Kildare. It will suit a large number of purchasers and we anticipate strong interest with the renewed focus on country living.”

There is a story, possibly apocryphal, that 20 years ago Kinane was mowing the lawn outside Eadling House when a passing driver approached, looking for directions. “Is this Ronan Keating’s house?” she enquired. “No, I live here,” Kinane replied. “Get away,” she said, looking doubtful. “You couldn’t be living in a place like this!”
