12.07am 17th September 2009 - Property

One of the world’s most famous five-star golf and spa resorts, The K Club has announced a partnership with leading global co-ownership specialist, Firstlight, to offer shared ownership of luxurious properties set within this outstanding 550-acre resort in County Kildare, just south of Dublin.

The K Club, which celebrates its 18th anniversary this year, was founded by Sir Michael Smurfit and boasts two championship golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer; famously hosting the Ryder Cup in 2006, in addition to 14 European Opens.

As well as attracting the world’s greatest golfers to its fairway – from Tiger Woods to Darren Clarke – many of the world’s most famous faces have visited the legendary retreat, from Bill Clinton and Daniel Craig to David and Victoria Beckham, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.

The magnificent 18th century chateau-style hotel, which has received endless accolades, was the first resort in Ireland to attain 5-AA red star rating, and was voted Egon Ronay Irish Hotel of the Year 1997 whilst also enjoying European and global recognition with Conde Nast’s Top Resort in Europe 2005, Robb Report Top 100 Resorts in The World.

Firstlight will be offering the opportunity to truly be a part of this idyllic Irish estate with shared ownership of a sumptuous property on the Ladycastle development with a choice of houses, apartments and duplex residences on offer. With easy access from Dublin airport, The K Club offers a retreat in the breathtaking Kildare countryside coupled with the delights of Dublin city centre just 30 minutes away.

Benefits of fractional ownership will include full family membership to The K Club, with use of its two championship golf courses, a dedicated concierge service and 5-star luxury facilities; such as a deluxe golf cart for internal transportation, a private locker in the clubhouse, airport transfers, plus full housekeeping service, property maintenance and a luxury welcome hamper on arrival each visit.

Owners will enjoy six weeks of usage per year, with two of those available at short notice, and a title deed which is undivided, giving the chance to own a luxury holiday residence at a fraction of the total property price, with a greater market for resale.

Residents of Firstlight The K Club will have access to all amenities of the resort and families can also benefit from nanny and babysitting services, children’s activity club, outdoor playground, swimming lessons and indoor activities.
