Rarely does a property of this calibre and size come to the market in such a popular location. Situated a short stroll from the grounds of Kilkenny Castle, this remarkable five-bedroom, executive style residence gives a fantastic first impression. Built in 2006, No. 4 is a solid built, five-bedroom, three-storey, detached property & holds all the ingredients of the perfect family home including a large kitchen / dining room that most people dream of, three reception rooms & five double bedrooms, three of which are ensuite. No. 4 ‘Castlehill’ is one of only four detached residences conveniently tucked away off the Bennettsbridge Road. It is adjacent to the city ring road & the Apple Green convenience store and petrol station. A short 1 km walk will lead you to the gates of Kilkenny Castle at The Parade. This beautiful Castle, dating back to the 12th century, boasts fifty acres of gardens, a pond, a playground and rolling parkland. The River Nore Linear Park walk along the Canal Walk is also accessed nearby. A walking commute to work downtown takes on a whole new meaning from this property – choose from a pleasurable stroll along the banks of the River Nore or through the grounds of Kilkenny Castle. For the Dublin commuter, a 2km drive along the adjacent city ring road will take you to the N10 which links directly to the M9. The M50 in Dublin is just under one hour’s drive from the M9.
