Co. Kilkenny

Two-bedroom home in a beautiful setting
€150,000 (£127,000)

THIS picturesque, traditionally-styled house in the Kilkenny countryside comes with its own planted garden and views over the rural landscape.

Tucked away on a quiet country road 7 km north of Waterford city and 2.5 km from the M9 Motorway, there’s plenty of accessibility to entice prospective buyers to Curluddy.

The whitewashed thatched Irish cottage was built in 1790 and was renovated seven years ago in keeping with its original, bucolic style.

The rustic property features exposed timber beams, lime-plastered internal walls painted white and wood-burning stove in the fireplace with a timber mantel.

A pretty landscaped garden surrounds the cottage and extends towards Kilkenny’s Tory Hill, views of which can be enjoyed thanks to the site’s elevation.

The detached home is on a one-third of an acre plot in the townland of Curluddy, Co. Kilkenny and is 1.5km from the village of Carrigeen, which has a food store, school, sports club and church.

The two-bedroom retreat is 93sq m (1,000sq ft) in size and is for sale through REA O’Shea O’Toole for €150,000.

Its living room is floored with a combination of tiles and oak and its kitchen has fitted timber units, a Belfast sink and wood-burning stove.
