NESTLED in horsey heaven in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow, Ballinteskin Stud has arrived on the market with a magnificent six-bedroom Georgian home, 118 acres and pristine equestrian facilities. A walk through this property is sure to leave any equine lover dreaming of hacking around the Sugar Loaf Mountains.

The current owner purchased the property from the Durkan Group construction company, who are well known in racing circles, for €7 million in 2006 and a full refurbishment of the splendid Georgian residence has been carried out. Two years later he put the property back on the market for double the price (€14 million) but it failed to sell.
