DescriptionThis wonderful property holds all the ingredients of the perfect home including a vibrant neighbourhood setting, nicely proportioned reception rooms, convenience to all amenities & a most tranquil cul de sac location. Discreetly tucked away off the Bennettsbridge Road on the sunny side of a cul de sac overlooking a generous green area is this three-bedroom semi-detached home with garage. Built c. 1977, No. 6 Willow Close is a most deceptive home having been previously extended at the rear to provide a large kitchen / dining room & thereby allowing for a larger, dual aspect, Living Room. It enjoys a front walled garden and single gated driveway. Access through the attached garage leads to a compact rear garden which enjoys the afternoon and evening sun. Because of its cul de sac location it also enjoys minimal passing traffic. It overlooks a lovely green area to the front which adds to its privacy & provides a most pleasant outlook.
A short 1.1km walk will lead you to the front gates of Kilkenny Castle at The Parade in Kilkenny (a short walkway leads directly from Willow Close to the Bennettsbridge Road opposite Dukesmeadows). This beautiful Castle, dating back to the 12th century, boasts fifty acres of gardens, a pond, a playground and rolling parkland. The River Nore Linear Park walk along the Canal Walk is also nearby. A walking commute to work downtown takes on a whole new meaning from this property – choose from a pleasurable stroll along the banks of the River Nore or through the grounds of Kilkenny Castle. It is also ideally located adjacent to the city ring road. It’s locational virtues do not end here, however; Loughboy Shopping Centre is a one-minute drive away boasting a whole host of shops to include a large Super Valu, Sam McAuley Chemist, Library, Post Office, Coffee Shop, Butcher, Barber, Newsagent, Dry Cleaner & Florist. The local neighbourhood shop, Nolans Gala deli & convenience store, is located 350m away. The Watershed sports complex boasting swimming pool, sports hall, gym, outdoor pitches and track facilities is a ten-minute walk away. Glanbia HQ, Banking 365, VHI and State Street offices are also nearby. Kilkenny County & City Lawn Tennis Club is also a short walk from the property.
