Opportunity knocks! Don't miss this outstanding opportunity to acquire a cute detached two-bedroom cottage with large sheds occupying an idyllic 0.815 acre setting close to the M9 and a short drive to Ballyhale, Knocktopher & Thomastown. The property was originally built c. 1890 and extended c. 1976. Remarkably, it does not have immediate neighbours and is instead surrounded by farmland & lush, green, countryside views. It occupies a glorious, rectangular, site of c. 0.815 acre comprising front garden, two driveways & rear gardens. It also enjoys two garages and a shed to the side and rear. In recent years, it has benefitted from rewiring, re-roofing, a fully re-tiled shower room, a new water pump & double-glazed windows. Whilst the property is ready to move into immediately, it certainly offers an opportunity for someone to put their own unique stamp on it. It also presents potential to extend the existing property or to build an entirely new property elsewhere on the plot, SPP. This property is located 24km south of Kilkenny city & 1.6km off the R448 Kilkenny-Waterford Road at Ballyhale. It is a mere 6-minute drive to the M9 motorway. The village of Ballyhale offers a range of amenities to include a GAA club, Garda Station, Medical Centre, Community Hall, Pharmacy, Creche & Montessori, coffee shop, pub, Church & primary school etc. Knocktopher is 3.4km away and the large market town of Thomastown, with its host of amenities, is only 10km away.
