John & Mary
Built on a small side road in a suburb on the outskirts of Kilkenny City, this modern city dormer has a large superbly crafted porch at its entrance, using a combination of timber, slate, stone and glass to create a warm and inviting entrance. The small front facade of the home magically hides its large light filled rooms and high ceilings from its visitors.
It is only when you step over the threshold that you truely get a feeling for the expert design and build quality that is found throughout this home. The high vaulted ceilings combined with the clever use of skylights, warm rich woods and clean crisp lines help to invite any guest further into this beautifully finished home. The large bright spacious hallway has several doors leading off into cozy sitting rooms and also into the large open plan living space that dominates a significant volume of the homes square footage. Also sitting comfortably in the hallway is the expertly crafted dog stairs that leads up to the bedrooms and bathroom area.
The open plan living area is packed full of features with a combination of standard and vaulted ceilings and again making use of skylights along with a large south facing corner window and long north facing horizontal windows all reinforcing the super warm features within the house. Nestled neatly under a large wooden mantle in the lounge section is the solid fuel burning cast iron stove, adding to the level of comfort and hospitable feel that this home encompasses.
The large modern feature packed kitchen and breakfast island are the focus of the room using natural materials and neutral colours emphasizing its function over frivolity design. Sitting off of the kitchen area is a large light filled dining space with south facing patio doors leading to the rear of the property, ideal for entertaining a large number of friends and family.
