Meadowlands, Ovidstown, Straffan, Co. Kildare


The location is perfect – tucked away on a quiet road just off the R403, between Clane & Barberstown and close to Straffan village, convenient to local shopping and amenities.
Coonan Property are delighted to introduce “Meadowlands”, a very fine five-bedroom detached family home to the market. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a very impressive residence, extending to approx. 3,800 sq.ft. & built in 2008, on this wonderfully secluded and discreet approx. 2-acre site. This home has been designed with the modern family in mind with the brief to have large well-proportioned living space & to also fill the house with natural light – the result is truly wonderful. In addition, the quality of fittings, the attention to detail and the use of technology sets this house apart.
“Meadowlands” is accessed through electric security gates and then via a curved gravelled driveway ensuring privacy for its family. The seclusion and privacy cannot be overstated as it is surrounded by a variety of mature trees ensuring a splendid country atmosphere. There is the added benefit of a large site which will be attractive to the hobby farmer or equestrian enthusiast alike.
