Hurler on the border

A HOP across the river Blackwater and the county boundary from Waterford to Cork for work reasons brings this very nicely extended Kilmacthomas family home to market.

Built in 2001 by a former Co Waterford hurling star and selector (but publicity shy!) it was later extended again to the back and side around 2007, with a slick, extensively glazed sun room with high ceilings.

Set at Carroll’s Cross near Kilmeaden and just off the N2 Cork-Waterford road, it is a new-to-market listing with agent Margaret Harty in Dungarvan, who is seeking offers around €385,000.

It has five bedrooms, all at ground floor level, one of them is en suite, and there’s an attic level large playroom as well.

One of the main bedrooms is en suite, and two more share a ‘Jack and Jill’ en suite between them, while the main family bathroom has a raised bath in a blue tile surround with feature glass block wall behind.

Quality features include a Stanley stove in the kitchen, a walnut floor in the conservatory, and a good cast iron fireplace in the 17’ by 15’ living room.

There’s also a study, utility, and lots of decking to the sunny rear landscaped garden, plus there’s a detached garage.

The location is rural, and just off the N25. Twenty minutes from Waterford city and five from Kilmeaden and Kilmacthomas, with walks in the Comeraghs.
