River views and rolling lawns at this contemporary home by the banks of the Suir

The five-bed property is right beside the Waterford/Kilkenny border.

LOCATED STEPS AWAY from the bank of the River Suir, this five-bed property is perfectly positioned to enjoy beautiful views of the river, Waterford Castle and beyond. 

The architect-designed home is close by the Waterford/Kilkenny border, with Waterford city just a 15-minute drive away.

Spanning an impressive 3,713 sq ft, it sits on two acres of landscaped gardens, with manicured lawns, mature trees and shrubs separating the property from the river.

The modern residence is filled with natural light from the moment you step in the front door thanks to its double-height orientation and picture windows, while double doors open to the highly impressive curved kitchen, living and dining room.

Taking advantage of the room’s south-westerly aspect, there are multiple floor-to-ceiling windows here, as well as access to two spacious decking areas. These outdoor areas provide the perfect spot to dine al fresco, to entertain or to sit and soak up the panoramic river views.

The decor in this open-plan area is both contemporary and welcoming, with a wood-burning stove, porcelain tiling with underfloor heating and a sleek kitchen with handleless cabinets. A utility room and pantry provide extra storage space.

While the open-plan design is perfectly suited to entertaining and relaxing as a family, sometimes a separate space can be a blessing. The separate living room, sitting room and study are perfect for this. A bedroom, en suite bathroom and two guest bathrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.

Moving to the first floor, the landing overlooks the entrance hall and open-area. The master bedroom is to the left and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the garden and river, while there’s also a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. A laundry chute means there’s no excuse for piles of washing to gather. 

There are three further double bedrooms on this floor. One has an en suite bathroom, while the other two share a Jack and Jill Bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached by electric gates and enjoys a great sense of privacy. There’s plenty of parking space to the front and in the car port, as well as a garage for extra storage and a tree house for little ones to enjoy.

For commuters, the nearby M9 and N25 provide direct links to Kilkenny city, Dublin, Cork and beyond.  

The riverside property in Gyles Quay, Co Kilkenny is on the market for €795,000 through RE/MAX via Daft.ie.
