Near Kilkenny, County Kilkenny
This modern home still exudes rustic, rural charm thanks to the exposed beams, slate tile flooring and wonderful countryside location in County Kilkenny.
Blackstairs Mountain House is listed in affiliation with Olivers Travels.
Blackstairs Mountain House offers a contemporary take on a traditional building; blending both ancient and new styles for a modern-rustic, independent home nestled within a spot of unparalleled tranquil seclusion.
Brimming with rural charm, set off the beaten track down a country lane, this striking home casts an impressive silhouette, with floor-to-ceiling glass fused with local timber in an atrium style, for a discreet and sympathetic blend of ancient stone, slate and local raw materials.
Set on a hilltop location within the ruins of a rustic farmhouse on the Kilkenny/ Carlow borders, there are views across Mount Leinster and the Castlecomer hills. On a clear day, visitors can look across to the Wicklow Mountains.
Imagine sitting back on the terrace overlooking the panoramic views illuminated with buttercup fields as the sun softens over the hills with a glass of wine; this home offers true restorative peace and beautiful isolation, ideal for creatives, writers and artists and those who wish to escape the madding crowds.
The interiors offer subtle luxury, a home-like atmosphere of comfort and warmth, along with quality and style. The open-plan ground floor is naturally divided into sub spaces, offering a farmhouse style kitchen with central breakfast bar, exposed timber beams and slate tile flooring, for a finish epitomised by understated taste.
The characterful living space offers an eclectic blend of oil paintings, polished antique timber furnishings as well as bottle green leather upholstery, accents of powder blue and vivid cobalt. The lavish, ornate candelabras and sleek marble accessories provide an exotic feel!
Abundant natural light pours in, with floor-to-ceiling glass and lofty ceiling height punctuated by the mezzanine level; there is a natural fusion of indoors and outdoors, with striking views from every angle.
Opulent style jostles alongside post-modern; a contemporary marble and chrome chimney breast contrasting with gilded-framed oil paintings and ornaments; fire logs piled into an oriental porcelain pot, salmon pink cushions scattered on soft cream sofas; ideal for curling up in front of the open fire at the end of the day.
This sumptuous home can comfortably sleep eight guests. The bedrooms are elegantly finished, with pretty floral wallpaper, crisp cotton bedlinen and charming side lamps for a restorative and tranquil space. Abundant with natural charm, the exposed natural timber, crisp cotton linen and fluffy towels provide a boutique hotel ambience and a sedate air of understated sophistication, whether it be the soft blue tones, or antique dressing table.
Blackstairs Mountain House offers additional services such as catering, all the modern appliances as well as twice weekly housekeeping. This unique home with its tone of understated luxury offers unparalleled seclusion, and the very best of a hotel experience along with flawless tranquillity!
