A piece of contemporary heaven in Inistioge, Kilkenny for under €1 million

A piece of contemporary heaven in Inistioge, Kilkenny for under €1 million

Built into the face of a gentle slope and set deep in the Kilkenny countryside, “Cappagh Stone” is the kind of property that only comes to the market once every five to ten years.

Melting into the landscape, this grand design style property has been spectacularly conceived to encompass, to the maximum, the panoramic South Westerly views of the River Nore valley and surrounding verdant countryside - and the Master Bedroom will take your breath away.

The bright and spacious property extends to approximately 400 sq. m. of well-orchestrated and good proportioned accommodation. The clever design of the natural sloping site has resulted in a two story property with access on the ground floor passing through a sheltered paved terrace.

The reason this inspired and innovatively designed home has an asking price of €950,000 is because there is nothing else like it on the market locally.

Details

The kitchen-breakfast room opens into the living area, with both rooms affording maximum light from the wall to ceiling panoramic glass windows.

A further living room with wood burning stove provides a cosy enclave.

A boot room, utility room and laundry room along with a fully tiled shower provide all the amenities for a growing family along with a large study and games room.

A guest bedroom with en suite completes the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs is a family bathroom with beautiful roll top bath. Each of the three double bedrooms is of good size, all with en suites and fitted wardrobes.

The larger master bedroom has a substantial en suite, walk in closet and French fitted wardrobes and enjoys the full vista of the Rambling River Nore below.

Electronic gates at the entrance lead up the graveled avenue bounded by mature

shrubberies and flower beds to the front of the imposing property where there is ample car parking.

Of particular note is the enclosed terrace, accessed through both the utility and

the laundry rooms. On the intermittent occasions the Irish Clouds stay away

the space transforms into a glorious Mediterranean sun trap with fig trees, pear trees, kiwi and apple trees along with grape vines snaking through the pagoda beams.

Upstairs the roof garden, although yet to be completed will offer new owners a very unique and special place to watch the vivid Irish sunsets or for the early birds, a

tranquil private space to watch the sun come up.

The clever design of the natural sloping site has resulted in a two story property with access on the ground floor passing through a sheltered paved terrace.
