DescriptionFitzGerald Lisney Alliance are favoured with instructions to offer this delightful rural retreat set in the north Kilkenny countryside for sale by private treaty. This lovingly restored quarry stone cottage offers the purchaser a unique home located in scenic countryside close to the bustling market town of Castlecomer and within a short drive of Kilkenny City.
The house is set on a landscaped site of 0.13 Ha (0.32 acre) with a delightful mature garden with extensive planting, shady nooks and “grow your own” vegetable patch. The house and garden are served by a range of out buildings and greenhouse.
Internally, this cosy home has been extended to the rear to include a generous living room with wood burning stove and french doors to the garden. The kitchen, located at the heart of the house, was the hub of the owners’ “ Danette’s Magic” sauces and chutneys business. This HACCP approved food preparation area includes a gas hob & cooker, an oil fired “Esse” range, cottage style hand painted cabinets and island unit. The original sitting room / parlour is currently used as a music room but has the potential to be a study or 4th bedroom. The bathroom features a roll top cast iron bath to soak away the stresses of life. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms set within the roof space with lots of storage and interesting nooks. Other features include two separate staircases to the bedrooms, quarry tiled floors and exposed timber beams full of character and charm.
Castlecomer has seen a surge of investment in recent times with the Discovery Park, the refurbished Avalon Hotel and the “Lady Anne” restaurant at the Creamery house all on the doorstep. The M.9 motorway (Dublin – Waterford) junction is just 7 miles away at Paulstown and Kilkenny City is within 18 miles of the property.
