Historic style meets modern luxury at this €950k villa in the sunny south-east

The property was built in 2005, but replicates the style of a Georgian home.

LOCATED NOT FAR from Kilmeaden village in the idyllic Waterford countryside, this four-bed property is a picture-perfect country house. 

Built in 2005, the residence was designed to replicate the feel and look of an original Georgian property.

Attention to detail was paid at every turn, from the symmetry and proportions of the rooms to the hand-moulded cornicing and Peruvian hardwood mahogany doors.  

The house is approached via a winding driveway with manicured lawns and hedging on either side. It sits on an elevated site on 1.9 acres, including a paddock with rail and post fencing, while an additional 21 acre site can be purchased separately.

The accommodation itself spans an impressive 5,000 sq ft over three floors, while the interior features a luxe country-style design.

A grand archway in the hall sets the tone for the rest of the property. There are plenty of spaces to entertain and to unwind at the spacious residence, including a light-filled drawing room with a marble open fireplace and a dining room with bespoke cabinetry.

The living room is the most impressive space, however, with sash windows providing views of the surrounding countryside and double doors opening to the bright and airy sunroom.

With tiled floors and large windows, this space truly brings the outside in and is the ideal spot to entertain guests or to unwind. Another set of double doors open to a large Indian sandstone patio, where it’s easy to envision many sunny summer days and evenings spent outdoors.

There’s access from the sunroom to the kitchen, which features ample storage space and an Aga stove. There’s also a utility room, pantry and boot room, as well an office and a study on this floor. 

Moving upstairs, there’s a library with built-in shelving on the first floor return. All four double bedrooms are at first floor level, with an en suite bathroom from each. The master bedroom boasts idyllic views, as well as a separate dressing room.

For remote workers, the second floor offers a space that would easily work as a home office. Outside, there’s a detached double garage with its own oil-fired heating system and a fitness room on the upper level.

Although designed to feel like a period property, the property’s heating system and high levels of insulation are welcome 21st century comforts. There’s a BER of B1, with double glazed windows and geo thermal underfloor heating adding to the cosy feel.

Kilmeaden village is an easy 10-minute walk away, while Waterford city can be reached within a 15-minute drive. 

With the remarkable style of a Georgian residence and the benefits of a modern home, this four-bed property offers a combination that’s hard to beat.

Located in Kilmeaden, Co Waterford, the property is on the market for €950,000 through Palmer via Daft.ie.
