Fontenoy was designed by renowned architect, Nicholas Fewer, and completed in 1997. It is a unique and exclusive residence, in an idyllic location within 5 mins walk of Kilkenny Castle, immediately adjacent to the Castle Grounds. A superbly spacious detached executive residence extending to C. 269.4 Sq. M / 2,900 Sq. Ft.

In times now gone, the Castle occupants and their guests from the gentry used Canal Walk as a tranquil and tree lined walkway along the banks of the River Nore. Fontenoy is superbly located to avail of these walks, yet is totally private being enclosed by high limestone walls with electrified security gates. The city centre is just a 10-minute stroll.

Location, space, security and tranquility, Fontenoy has them all. As can be seen, Fontenoy is a unique property designed to give maximum light and airiness to all rooms. The internal measurements given are for guidance purposes only as each room has its own distinctive space and shape. The use of double height ceilings, open bridge effect landing and internal windows all blend to provide a truly gracious and appealing private residence in an unrivalled location.

This house is truly a once off with each and every room having its own special character, superbly designed to optimize the beauty of the setting by clever use of natural light and irregular shapes. The property has solid hardwood doors, architraves, windows and skirting boards throughout with extra high ceilings and attractive timber floors.

Garden and Grounds:
The grounds of Fontenoy extend to C. 0.55 Acres / 0.22 Hectares and are accessed through wooden electric security gates. The driveway is laid in gravel with off street parking for multiple cars. The gardens are fully enclosed and totally private with mature shrubs, trees and boundary hedging. A fresh water stream meanders gently through the gardens.
The vendors spent considerable sums in the landscaping and developing of the gardens including the planting of specimen trees and shrubs. There a is a patio area to the rear of the house designed to provide the ultimate privacy and maximum all day sunshine. A block built garage (measuring 4.9m x 4m approx.) is positioned to the side of the residence with double doors opening on to the driveway.
