On the market – four in Kilkenny

Charlotte’s Cottage, 6 Chapel Avenue

€385k Sherry FitzGerald McCreery (056) 772 1904

Charlotte’s Cottage was reportedly built in the late 18th century, and was then on the grounds of Butler House — now a hotel but formerly a dower house for the earls of Kilkenny Castle. The cottage is nicely situated in the heart of town but shielded from the street by a high wall with an arched doorway leading to a courtyard. Inside are original features including shuttered sash windows and cast-iron fireplaces, and a beamed ceiling in the kitchen, where there’s an oil-fired range. Next to that is a living room with a fireplace, and a second sitting room upstairs. There are three bedrooms and a total floor area of 1,746 sq ft.

Tara, Boolyglass, Hugginstown

€1.75m Property Partners Buggy (056) 779 6161

In 1999, Kilkenny County Council granted planning permission for a relatively modest dormer bungalow at Boolyglass. Then the applicant had a change of mind, and got permission in 2001 to build a 7,300 sq ft three-storey mansion instead, now known as Tara. There’s a striking, bifurcated staircase in the entrance hall. Around this are the reception rooms — dining room, living room and sitting room plus a study and the kitchen, which has a sunroom. From there you can get to the adjoining triple garage where there’s a dog room with a shower for the dog. The first floor has five bedrooms. The site is on 2.65 acres.
