An exemplary celebration of light and spatial versatility, this remarkable four-bedroom property has it all. The location of ‘Rose Hill’ is very appealing, being a short drive or easy walk to the city centre and it is immediately adjacent to the city ring road providing easy access out of the city. (It is a mere 1.5km from the city centre and only 0.2kms to the city ring road.) Within the development of ‘Rose Hill’ itself, No. 9 ‘Rose Hill’ Avenue enjoys a most favourable location being conveniently close to the entrance on an attractive tree lined avenue and not overlooked from the rear. A walking commute to work downtown takes on a whole new meaning from this property – choose from a pleasurable stroll along the Kells Road or along the College Road via Coote’s Lane. Its locational virtues do not end here, however. No. 9 is positioned in a ‘five minute neighbourhood’ with lots of amenities within a five minute drive including Loughboy Shopping Centre (Super Valu, Sam McAuley Chemist, Library, Post Office, Coffee Shop, Butcher, Barber, Newsagent, Dry Cleaner & Florist), The Smithland Centre (butcher, pharmacy, office supply store, hairdresser, Italian restaurant, Mario’s diner, Physio & Yoga studio), The Watershed sports complex (swimming pool, sports hall, gym, outdoor pitches, and track facilities) not to mention convenience stores, petrol stations, pubs, Churches and a host of schools to include St. Patrick’s De La Salle Primary School, St. John of God Primary School, St. Kieran’s College Secondary School, Kilkenny School Project, The Gaelscoil Primary School & the Presentation Secondary School. Glanbia HQ, Banking 365, VHI, Taxback and State Street offices, Lidl (currently being rebuilt) & Aldi are also nearby. A gym, swimming pool, bar and restaurant are a stone’s throw away at Hotel Kilkenny which is immediately adjacent to ‘Rose Hill’ via Coote’s Lane.
Apart from this ‘hard to beat’ location this fine family home boasts lots of features to include marble flooring to the entrance hall, kitchen, utility room & toilet / shower room, black granite worktops, surround sound, a large cobble lock front driveway to comfortably fit two cars, a landscaped rear garden that is alive with colour, a cobble lock ‘sun trap’ entertaining area and a steel shed. And as if that wasn’t enough, the joy continues! As a result of the property being owner occupied since it was built-in 2007, no stone has been left unturned in terms of its upkeep, improvement, and maintenance. In recent years the following improvements were undertaken: the kitchen and utility cabinets were spray painted, smart under stairs storage was fitted in the entrance hall maximizing space, the ground floor underfloor heating was fully reconditioned, a new gas boiler was installed, a new hot water cylinder was fitted, carpet was fitted on the stairs, a solid fuel stove (and new flue) was installed in the ground floor Sitting Room, parquet flooring was fitted on the first floor landing, wooden flooring was fitted in various rooms throughout the house, a walk-in-wardrobe was added in Bedroom 4, beautiful wooden beading was fitted in the entrance hall, stair cases and landings & the Living Room on the first floor was interior designed by Helene Broderick.
