No.8 Rose Gardens is a magnificent detached five bedroom house of character situated in the leafy suburb of Rosehill, on the Kells Road, Kilkenny. Situated within a small and exclusive culde sac, electronic wrought iron gates and railings with cobble lock driveway and selected shrubs lead to a panelled front door, accented with attractive ironmongery, open to an impressive front entrance hall which sets the tone for the proportions and general style of the house that is to follow. Double oak doors from the main entrance hall lead to the first of three large interconnecting reception rooms. The living room is nicely proportioned with a feature stone granite fireplace, attractive window shutters and solid walnut floors. Immediately adjoining, double doors leadtothe main family room with elegant panelled timber walls, recessed downlighting and a continuation of the walnut flooring from the living room. Double French doors from the family room lead to a wonderfully bright and spacious conservatory, enjoying panoramic views of the rear south west facing gardens, patio and water feature. It is tastefully finished with luxurious creme Marfilfloor tiling, painted white tongued & grove ceiling, recessed spot down lighting and double glass doors which lead to the outside patio and gardens. An open arch from the family room leads to a showpiece of original design and craftsmanship, the kitchen is complete with custom in-frame cabinetry accented by LED under mount and interior lighting; tiled back splash and honed granite countertops; a centre island with solid beech worktop; high end appliances including an American style fridge, stainless steel Waterford Stanley cooker, as well as a new built-in Bosch dishwasher, integrated microwave oven and stand-alone larder press. Directly off the kitchen is a well-designed utility room with built-in cabinetry, stainless steel sink drainer with front load washer and dryer. A pedestrian door leads to the outside gable end of the property. Off the main hallway, the guest toilet and cloakroom with equestrian themed wallpaper and Roca sanitary-ware complete the ground floor accommodation. A staircase with bespoke Axminister carpet runner, silver stair rods and panelled walls lead to a spacious first floor landing with oak timber flooring, recessed lighting and a large airing cupboard. The main bathroom is bright and spacious with tiled floor, part tiled mosaic walls with corner jacuzzi bath and high quality Roca sanitary ware. There are three bedrooms at this level, one of which (currently an office) adjoins the main bathroom and has high quality carpets and timber shutters with an aspect to the rear garden. Directly adjacent, a large double bedroom with carpet floors, timber shutters and ensuite shower overlooks the rear gardens. The master bedroom is located to the front and extends the width of the property. With a wonderful feeling of space this fineroom is finished with high quality Ulster carpets and window shutters. There is a convenient walk-in wardrobe with extensive shelving and rails while a large ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi bath, separate double shower cubicle with attractive wall and floor tiling is finished to highest of standards. A staircase with a continuation of the carpet runner leads to the second floor landing which enjoys good daylight thanks to large Velux roof windows. There are two large bedrooms at this level. Directly off the landing there is a generous sized double bedroom with Velux roof window and aspect to the front of the property. Originally two bedrooms, the owners have cleverly amalgamated them and the result is a wonderfully large double bedroom enjoying high vaulted ceilings, carpet floors and a dual aspect orientation. This room has a large ensuite shower room with attractive mosaic vanity unit and glass basin, double power shower and the high quality Roca sanitary-ware. An entertainers dream home - its modern open concept design, and ease of flow between the formal and informal rooms, can easily accommodate large gatherings, while also perfect for intimate get-togethers, especially the family room and sunroom, which has the added warmth of a built in Gazco gas fireplace. To the outside, the grounds are just magnificent! To the front, a cobblestone driveway provides ample parking for multiple vehicles. The gardens are both intimate, private and beautifully manicured enjoying good sunshine from early morning to late evening. A matching detached garage to the side of the house sits comfortably into its beautiful surroundings and could suit a number of uses to include a home/work office. The garage building is insulated and has an oil fired central heating system with wall mounted radiators. From the outset, the owners have gone to great lengths to source better products and finishes for all aspects of the building fabric of this property. It is this commitment to perfection that adds layers of value to this wonderful home. The property offers space, tranquillity and above all a central location, ideal for a growing family.
