School days are over for this Kilkenny development
The Schoolyard, Castlecomer Road, Kilkenny
In Kilkenny, the school around the corner really is not quite the same: the intersection between Newpark Drive and the Castlecomer Road, once the site of the city's Model School, is now home to The Schoolyard, a residential development of detached homes launched last summer.
Five of the nine homes brought to the market at The Schoolyard are still available. There were three house types built in all, but the single unit from type C, a four-bed style, has been sold. Remaining are two four-beds with 1,991 sq ft of living space priced from €390,000 and three three-beds measuring 1,571 sq ft. Two of these three-beds cost €320,000, while the third is priced from €325,000. Allowances for tiling, kitchens, wardrobes and fireplaces are also available.
The properties are being built by Kevin Moore Building Contractors, a local company behind other Kilkenny developments such as Loreto Lodge, Talbots Gate and Bridgeview Gardens.
Interior features include softwood painted stairs with painted balustrades and oak handrails. Outside, the rear garden comes with a paved patio area complete with an external socket and tap - ideal for barbecues. There is also a garden to the front, along with a paved driveway with enough space to accommodate two cars.
The A3-rated homes will have a high efficiency stove in the living room, tripled-glazed windows, solar panels and a gas-condensing boiler.
