DescriptionA delightful & comfortable three-bedroom, terraced, two-storey house enjoying an idyllic cul de sac setting just off the Bennettsbridge Road. The location of Melville Heights cannot be underestimated with every modern convenience on its doorstep. This lovely home holds all the ingredients of a very astute purchase including an excellent location in an established development, nicely proportioned living and bedroom accommodation, neutral tones throughout, private rear garden and a great cul de sac setting. Melville Heights is located in an elevated setting at the top of the Bennettsbridge Road next to the Apple Green convenience store and petrol station. Built by Melville Developers in 1993, No. 63 is a solid built three-bedroom, two-storey, terraced home. Apart from its ‘hard to beat’ location the property has lots to offer! It is positioned across from a pleasant green area, it enjoys a cul de sac location with minimal passing traffic, it has been recently repainted, it has a brand-new carpet on the stairs, landing and main bedroom and there are built-in wardrobes in each bedroom. Benefitting from a west facing rear garden it enjoys majestic views from its elevated position of The Watershed grounds, rooftops of Kilkenny and countryside beyond. The property benefits from its own allocated car parking space immediately opposite the front door. A short 1.5km walk from the entrance to Melville Heights will lead you to the front gates of Kilkenny Castle at The Parade in Kilkenny. This beautiful Castle, dating back to the 12th century, boasts fifty acres of gardens, a pond, a playground and rolling parkland. Access to 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. Its locational virtues do not end here, however; Loughboy Shopping Centre is a two-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 Watershed sports complex boasting swimming pool, sports hall, gym, outdoor pitches, and track facilities sits directly behind Melville Heights and is a five-minute walk away. Glanbia HQ, Banking 365, VHI and State Street offices are also nearby.
