A large, stunning Waterford residence boasts standout design and views of the Suir, writes Trish Dromey.
Buyers in search of a high end trade up home in Waterford city will find it hard to find fault with No 39 The Estuary, Kings Channel.
“It’s an impressive architecturally designed property in a prestigious development in one of the most sought after parts of the city,’’ says Thomas Reid of DNG Reid & Coppinger who believes that its location is likely to prove the key selling point for the 2004 built five bed property.
Other attractions include views of the River Suir from the side and the fact that that it is a particularly generous trade up home with over 3,300 sq ft of contemporary living space.
Situated on a corner site in a cul de sac of individually designed detached houses, it stands out because of its unusual V shape and the large apex window above the doorway at the front.
The most impressive feature inside the house is a stylish timber and steel staircase which sits in the centre of a large living area and leads up to a galleried first floor landing.
Ground floor accommodation includes an open plan timber floored living /dining space with river views at one side and there is also a sitting room, a kitchen, a study or TV room and a guest WC.
The first floor has a bathroom and five bedrooms, including two with en suites. The views across King’s Channels from the bedrooms at one side are even better than the river views downstairs.
The house has a detached garage at the side as well as a lawned garden at the rear.
Seeking offers of €585,000, Mr Reid says that properties of the caliber of this spacious, well maintained family home don’t come on the market very often in this part of the city.
He notes that the location in the Ballinakill area is especially sought after. The house is within walking distance of University Hospital Waterford, the Ardkeen and Tesco shopping centres and a is within easy reach of sporting amenities as well as primary and secondary schools in the Dunmore Road area.
The Property Price Register shows no sales in the Estuary since No 22 sold for €510,00 in 2018 although two properties sold last year in the nearby King’s Court estate, No 34 for €540,000 and No 15 for €545,000.
The Register also shows No 39 The Estuary selling for €430,000 in August 2015.
