EVENING AND WEEKEND VIEWINGS AVAILABLE Talbots Inch village is recognized worldwide for the architectural gem it is, but locally Talbots Inch village is recognized as the dream location, the spot 'I'd love to live in'.
Located just outside Kilkenny City but within easy walking distance of the city, the model village was developed by Lady Desart and at the time had its own school, community hall, and shop.
Residing in Talbots Inch is all about a lifestyle, Parkland and River walks, no passing traffic, and a sense of times past contribute to the attraction of 'The Village'.
Number 12 Talbots Inch received a full upgrade, refurbishment, and extension, 15 years ago. Absolute care was given to hold and maintain many of the features. An independent conservation architect managed the entire project, with McMahon Builders, completing the project.
No. 12 Talbots Inch with its front cottage garden and rambling rose over its front door is the original picture postcard. Living in No. 12 almost guarantees contentment, with this being the perfect opportunity to purchase and buy into a lovely pleasant lifestyle.
Stepping inside No. 12 is stepping into something special. The original terracotta tiles, timber ceilings, and the arts and crafts fireplace are all still there to be admired, begging to be said is, 'why change perfection' and that's it really.
There's a level of acceptance living in a special place like Talbots Inch and it's about embracing it. There's a wonderful amount of living space in No. 12, what was the kitchen now leaves a second living room/library as you enter with a sliding door, creating a special quiet room that still links both the original with the new extension.
The roof structure to the extension creates a wonderful feel to it and the use of glass in the roof build, fills the space with daylight. Solar panels are fitted to the south-facing portion of the roof extension.
These facilitate all the hot water needs of the house for 4-6 months of the year without using any immersion or gas.
A Tommy Barry fitted kitchen matches the ethos of the sympathetic upgrade the house received and looks as all his work looks, magnificent. An interior lime render plaster, gives an original finish to the terracotta-built walls and with the rationale French doors and windows, completing the finish to perfection.
The family bathroom is located on the ground floor and is in beautiful condition. The use of a heat exchange unit throughout the house brings a modern aspect to the house and with the fitted solar panels, show the thought and care given to the upgrade No. 12 received.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, each with storage and all with their own originality intact. The back garden of No. 12 Talbots Inch is enclosed and receives full sun. A limestone patio creates a special area in the garden, to enjoy its privacy. To the rear of the back garden is a small service road, which allows for easy use for residents of the village.
A garden shed and storage unit to the rear, fronts the third garden attached to the property.
Nobody needs reminding of the opportunity, the sale of this property offers. There are no negatives with the purchase of this home. The village itself, the proximity to both St. Canice's Primary School and Loreto College as well as the whole positivity and desirability of the location really is an opportunity to fulfill the purchase of the dream house.
