Incredible Kildare residence steeped in racing history on the market for €1.15M
10:00 Sunday 12th of August 2018

The residence that was once home to 2007 English Grand National winning horse Silver Birch is on the market for €1.15 million, with the fee falling from its previous asking price of €1.35 million in 2017.

Rheindross House, a stunning property located between Kilcock and Clane, was owned by former racehorse owner Brian Walsh.

Walsh owned the 2007 National winner in what was one of racing's fairytale stories at the time, with a then 29-year-old and inexperienced Gordon Elliott training the 10-year-old, while Robert 'Puppy' Power was the jockey for that success. Owner, trainer and rider were all under the age of 30 at the time, and all lived within a few kilometres of the property on the Kildare/Meath border.

There are excellent equestrian facilities at Rheindross with well-managed paddocks with stud railing for pasture, an American barn with 10 loose boxes with hatch feed pots and automatic water drinkers and three winter turn out areas that are securely fenced. There is also a detached garage with double doors which could be easily converted to extra accommodation, subject to planning permission from the local county council.

The exquisite five-bedroom home is set on 10.5 acres in a prime location near the M4 motorway.

The entrance hall, with feature solid oak staircase and tiled flooring, is a welcoming space. To either side of the hallway are two large formal living rooms with dual aspects and views to the front. Both these rooms have feature fireplaces and wooden flooring. To the rear of the ground floor is a fantastic family room with bar area. The formal dining room is a magnificent entertaining space, just beside the kitchen, with access to the rear gardens and patio area; perfect of barbequing and relaxing. The kitchen is finished immaculately with tiled flooring, an island unit with black granite worktop, AGA and solid wooden units. The ground floor is complete with a utility area, WC, family bathroom and storage area.

Sherry Fitzgerald Brady O'Flaherty are looking after the sale of the property.
