No 5, The Hill, Weir view, Castlecomer Road, Kilkenny
Location, size and quality of finish are just some of the fine hallmarks attributed to a recently extended five bedroom family home at the Weir View, Castlecomer Road, Kilkenny offered for sale by Warren McCreery, auctioneer, Parliament Street, Kilkenny.
Bright, spacious and exceptionally well appointed, the property has been lovingly maintained by its current owners who spared no expense with the various clever additions made to the property to include an extensive two storey extension and refurbishment giving the property a total floor area of circa. 246m2 (circa.2,649 sq ft).
The main entrance door leads to an impressive entrance hall with high quality marble floor tiles and staircase to first floor. In to the left is a generous living room room featuring solid oak floors, feature marble fireplace with bespoke built in shelving and presses and a large bay window with an aspect to the front. Double French doors lead to a large open plan kitchen/dining area with a continuation of the oak floors from the livingroom. Definitely a cook's kitchen, the attractive painted wall and floor cabinetry is finished with 'Angola' granite worktops incorporating a breakfast bar with an impressive array of integrated appliances to include a 'Waterford' style stainless steel cooker and American fridge freezer. A door off the kitchen leads to an extensive fully plumbed utility with fitted wall & floor presses and door to outside and this is where the standard layout ends!
In 2013 the owners carried out an extensive and tastefully thought through extension of the property, taking full advantage of the south and west facing orientations of the site. The installation of floor to ceiling glass, sliding glass doors and roof windows ensures maximum sunlight throughout the day. The original Kitchen/Dining area now opens on to two further reception areas (TV Room & Garden Room) which can be easily re-configured for family occasions with the clever use of concealed sliding glass doors from both the TV room and Garden room. An under stairs toilet off the main hallway completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor landing is bright and spacious with convenient hotpress and separate linen press. The addition of the new extension allowed the owners to remove the main bathroom and convert to a hallway/walk through wardrobe, providing access to an impressive master bedroom with floor to ceiling glass, carpet floors and recessed lighting. Immediately adjacent, an ensuite bathroom/shower room with cream wall/floor tiling, Duravit sanitary ware to include corner bath, attractive shower cubicle and mirrored wall cabinetry are finished to the highest of standards. There are four further bedrooms (3 double & 1 single) facing the front and rear of the property, two of which have ensuite shower rooms and all with built in wardrobes. Up on top, there are folding stairs to the attic which includes flooring and lighting.
The attention to fine detailing and finish continues outside with beautifully manicured gardens, extensive patio areas with raised beds incorporating carefully selected plants and shrubs. The corner site location provides great privacy and the clever garden design offers an intimacy and connection with the house and new extension that makes it always inviting no matter what the weather. A children's treehouse nestles seamlessly on the raised beds and will be included in the sale.
The design, build quality and owners ability in the use of colour, fabrics and furniture adds layers of personality and design consistency to this beautiful home. A viewing is recommended and will not disappoint.
