Built c. 2007, this home was designed to the highest of specifications without a single detail overlooked.
Upon entering through the high, limestone capped pillars you will find a large driveway. There is a parking port for a selection of vehicles with a pergola structure overhead, supplemented by additional open car space as required. The main entrance hall is grand, with a beautiful solid oak staircase going to the first floor. An immediate impression is made by the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that continues throughout the property. Timber detail such as skirting and architraves are expertly executed throughout and were milled on-site to ensure quality control. Extra heightened doorways were also incorporated to allow adequate light to flow and to match the high 10" ceilings.
Just to the right of the main hall, is the living room. This room is awash with fine joinery, double cornicing and an impressive ornate gas fireplace as its focal point. The kitchen and dining area, located in the west wing, is spacious and has an exclusive David Kiely maple and walnut kitchen installed with a great selection of top end appliances. Double doors open superbly to the family room, thus allowing an open plan feel running the depth of this portion of the property. The kitchen, dining space and family room have glazed double door access to the patio area providing ample light. The kitchen is conveniently connected to the utility which matches the same bespoke design. From the utility, an office and the second guest lavatory can be found. Returning to the main hall, you will find passage to a charming and spacious lounge/den area. This room, though in the centre of the house, is illuminated by a fully glazed roof acting as one large skylight making for a most unique of living spaces.
On the first floor you have the master bedroom. This is an impressive and spacious room accessed through double doors, serviced by an en suite and a superb walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom 2 rivals the master in size and features and runs nearly the full width of the property. There are three other bedrooms, all but one with the added benefit of an en-suite. All bedrooms are double rooms with oak engineered flooring and high end detailing a common feature throughout. The main bathroom is impressive in size with a wet room shower with a multiple nozzle spray system and a double version of the air bath system seen in the master en suite.
A continuation of the oak staircase leads to the attic floor. From the landing, you will find three large rooms all of which are flexible in use. On the right, is a dressing room with built in shelving and a vanity space. Heading left from the landing, is a sizable office well illuminated by four large velux windows. The remaining room is ideally suited as a home theatre with some separate additional space acting as a security controls room.
The property has a selection of technologies that are integrated into the house, including high end and energy efficient lighting, ample supply of electrical and bulb sockets, surround sound in select rooms, an integrated intercom system, CCTV security and a powerful central vacuum system.
Externally this property continues to amaze. To the front, on the southern boundary, is a large block-built double garage with electric roller doors. The garage is fully powered and has a mezzanine level matching the ground floor dimensions, ideal for storage. At the entrance of the house, is a solid wrought iron gate secured to solid stone pillars finished with cut limestone and custom cast iron railings. The property itself boasts a low maintenance exterior render finish with all limestone plinths, chimney caps, thresholds and quoins. The property is bounded by a combination of render walls and a beautiful mix of Kilkenny Greystone and locally sourced green and brown stone. There is a continuation of the stone mix cladding on the southern boundary with a delightful waterfall feature nestled within. The western side of the house has an elevated observation deck that catches superb sun. Stepping down from here you will find a large patio laid in a wonderful low maintenance block paving. The property has a great selection of external lighting around the property ensuring both privacy and security along with multiple water points and external sockets.
