Kilkenny Property Watch: A gem of a house in a prime location

The location of College Road is recognised as one of Kilkenny’s premium addresses.
St Anthony’s on College Road has the advantage of enjoying dual access with the rear entrance located off College Court on the Old Callan Road.
The layout and design, although of its era offers huge potential without over extending the property. The pillared entrance and cobble-locked drive gives easy access and is maintenance free to the front.
The entrance to St. Anthony’s is elevated and the width to the hallway makes for easy access around the house.
The living room to the front has an oversized window that fills the room with light. It’s a sizeable space with extra ceiling height and as a layout floor plan shows, it would be easy to create an open plan living space, as it’s next to the large kitchen dining area. The ground floor is fitted with suspended floors, which give a more relaxed feel, when walking on them.
Superb Space
The kitchen dining area is a superb space. The size is top class and offers huge potential to renovate. It receives west sunlight so has enormous opportunities.
The utility is located just off the kitchen and has direct access to the front and College Road but also gives access to the enclosed and not overlooked patio area.
There are two bathrooms on the ground floor, both sizeable and one with a fitted steam room. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor and the other three bedrooms are located on the first floor. Again all are in good structural order and are bright and spacious. The third bathroom is located centrally to these rooms.
There is sizeable space to the rear of St Anthony’s. A large dry secure workshop, offers potential to join to the main house or become an independent unit.
Secluded Garden
A large patio area fronts this building and also the main house steps down to the rear, gives way to a secluded lawn and garden. Again there are a number of potting sheds, a large tarmacadam parking area is ideally placed for the rear access.
There is no doubt the location is perfect and St Anthony’s has the potential, to be a magnificent home in the heart of Kilkenny City.
