Garnaman, Kells is a remarkable state of the art home in a highly sought after location, offering exceptional Georgian style features, and standing on 5.88 acres.
Located 6 miles from Kilkenny city, 1 mile from Kells and within 4 minutes drive to Junction 9 of the M9 Motorway the property is in an idyllic countryside setting with superb views over the adjoining countryside.
Constructed in 2007 to the highest standards, this 3,500 sq ft Georgian style exquisite family residence leaves nothing to chance in relation to its specification, finish, aspect and design.
The house was architecturally designed to provide expansive light filled living space yet is a practical family home with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside to the rear .
A Georgian fanlight over the entrance door leads to an attractive mosaic tiled porch area with double doors leading to the entrance hallway. This hallway with high quality timber flooring (Serenzo Solid Oak) is dominated by a bespoke winding staircase to the first floor.
A series of doors from the main entrance hallway leads to the ground floor accommodation which looks onto the front and rear gardens respectively. The timber flooring from the hallway is continued through the two perfectly symmetrical reception rooms to the front of the house.
Both rooms enjoy classical high floor to ceiling heights (9’ 8’’), decorative coving and wooden sash windows and panelling so typically reminiscent of the Georgian era.
Double sliding doors from the Living Room lead to an open plan dining/kitchen/sunroom area.
A door off the kitchen leads to a Pantry with fitted presses and floor to ceiling height shelving.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the back hallway which leads to the utility room containing a sink and fitted wall and floor presses plumbed for washing machine and dryer. Also, off this hallway is a double bedroom and a shower room & toilet.
The first floor contains four large double bedrooms, two with En-suite bathroom’s and the other two served by a Jack & Jill style En-suite bathroom.
The property is accessed via pillared entrance gates (electric) with both the pillars and walls topped with Kilkenny Limestone capping.
A winding tree lined gravel driveway leads to the house with paddocks on either side of the driveway and house.
The gardens were designed and proportioned by a Landscape Architect and have been meticulously maintained with a selection of lawns, plants, shrubs and hedgerows.
A vegetable garden consisting of five raised beds is located to the rear of the house.
The outbuildings are designed in an L-shape and contain a double garage with workbench and double doors. Adjoining this is a storage shed and garden utensils shed.
Two other sheds complete the outbuildings with one containing the water pump and water treatment system.
Both paddocks are stud rail fenced around all boundaries with water troughs built into the stud railing. Both paddocks have only recently been re-seeded. Land is excellent quality limestone free draining soil.
