Restored to the highest spec by one of Ireland's best known songwriters and producers, Jenkinstown House offers a rare opportunity to acquire manor style family living with built in revenue streams and earning potential if required. It comes with 6.7 acres of private grounds and is just 8 minutes drive from Kilkenny City.

Jenkinstown House, a fine specimen of 19th Century Gothic Revival, spans 6663 square feet, (619m²) including two elegant and spacious living rooms, a light filled kitchen, a palatial ensuite master bedroom along with two other impressive bedrooms and bathrooms. Underfloor heating, double glazed sash windows along tasteful fittings set the stage for luxury living.

The buyer will benefit from 3 stunningly designed shepherds huts with current owners earning 5 star ratings for their Airb services. Nestled in the state owned Jenkinstown wood, and overlooking beautiful Kilkenny countryside, the huts promise an easy and reliable income source for the long term.

To the side of the house, what was once a private chapel adorned by stained glass windows is now a top spec auditorium with 106 seats, stage, with two booths designed for sound production and lighting sitting at the back of the theatre. The space, although tailor made for performance and recording artists, is easily converted for other purposes such as accommodation or tea rooms. It has wheelchair access with HSE standard bathrooms for use at events such as concerts, weddings and family celebrations.

The back of the theatre leads onto a splendid walled courtyard, this is an ideal space for Summer entertainment with the added potential of having a small market for 6 to 8 stalls.

A splendid Gothic Dining Hall is central to the property. Featuring wonderful high beam ceilings, stained glass windows and an old style banqueting table dominate the room. While stunning in its current form, the discerning investor can enjoy significant potential for reimagining its use. In former times it was a popular local cafe, its future may lie in becoming bespoke accommodation.

The potential for all these ideas will increase with authorities planning an imminent upgrade of the woods. This includes the revival of the Thomas Moore Garden which is accessed from the house via a solid timber gate set within a Gothic stone arch along with the restoration of the original walled garden for Jenkinstown house.

Nearby Kilkenny city provides boutique shopping, a theatre and an array of eateries, restaurants, wine bars and pubs. The 12th-century castle, a bustling crafts scene, traditional pubs, cobbled lanes and secret alleys all make Kilkenny special and combined with a lively traditional music scene, art and design exhibitions, popular seasonal festivals and Michelin star restaurants the city is enthralling. Kilkenny College secondary school offers boarding (day and weekly). Dublin city and airport about 1 hour 30 minutes driving.
