The ground floor of Barrow House features a kitchen and breakfast area with four oven Aga, a pantry and a library that spans the width of the house, complete with a fireplace and fitted bookshelves. There is also a dining room and summer sitting room on the ground floor, both of which include doors that lead out to the patio and garden, and Adam-style fireplaces framed with white marble.
The gardens and grounds of Barrow House are another of the property’s key features. It has an expansive collection of lawns and a sunken garden, all of which are south-facing to get the best natural light. At the rear of the property, there are also grounds that could be used for growing fruit and vegetables, helping any future resident in their efforts to become self-sustained. There is also a tennis court and swimming pool as part of the property’s outdoor facilities.
As well as being a stunning piece of property on its own, Barrow House also has an interesting history; it has been the home of Stan and Maureen Cosgrove since the late 1980s. Stan Cosgrove is the world-famous equine veterinarian, known for establishing one of the most highly respected horse treatment facilities in the world, Troytown Veterinary Hospital in County Kildare.
