Kilkenny Property: Peace and privacy with all of the modern conveniences

Sherry Fitzgerald McCreery have brought a wonderful home, featuring all the modern conveniences that a family needs for easy living, to market.
Enjoying a magnificent setting on circa 0.64 Hectares of mature gardens, Goresridge House offers captivating views of the River Nore and the surrounding countryside.
Built in 2003 by the current owners Gorseridge House (210 square metres/2,260 square feet approx) is superbly located in a peaceful and secluded setting in the townsland of Woollengrange which is in the parish of Bennettsbridge.
The enclosed porch leads to an impressive entrance hall with a curved wall and a striking staircase which leads up to a Mezzanine level. The formal reception room, with two bay windows and an open fireplace, is located to the front of the property.

A magnificent open plan semicircle-shaped kitchen/dining room is located at the end of the entrance hall. There is access to a utility room from the kitchen/dining room while a guest wc and a storage closet are also located at this end of the hall. The four double bedrooms, two with en-suites and one with a walk-in wardrobe, are located to the left of the entrance and are accessed through an inner hall with feature curved walls. A family bathroom completes the accommodation at this end of the house.
The grounds extend to circa 1.58 acres of private gardens which have been well planned to provide colour and privacy. The property is located at the end of a private laneway and accessed through post and rail fencing with wooden entrance gates. A sweeping tarmacadam driveway leads up to front and side of the property where there is parking for several cars.
