An exclusive development of twenty-two golf villas set in the beautifully wooded environs of Mount Juliet Estate in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland, has just been released for sale by agents Hamilton Osborne King of Dublin. Being developed by Mount Juliet Properties, “Walton’s Grove” has proved to be a very popular concept and over 35% of the development has already been sold from the plans.
The Mount Juliet Estate is situated on the banks of the River Nore at Thomastown, only a ninety minute drive from both Dublin and from Cork City but commuting time from Dublin will be reduced in the near future as the main Dublin to Waterford route is set for significant improvement.
The elegant country house was originally built two centuries ago and is surrounded by 1,500 walled acres of pastures, unspoiled woodlands and formal gardens. The estate has its origins in the twelfth century and includes the Ballyhinch Stud Farm, Mount Juliet Golf Club, which has hosted the Irish Open on three occasions, and conference facilities.
The three and four bedroom villas, situated beside the 12th fairway of the Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course are priced from IR£460,000 to IR£525,000 and the scheme is expected to be ready for occupation by the end of this year.
Every property comes complete with a four-person shuttle buggy for commuting around the estate and a private buggy bay is also provided. Purchasers qualify for nomination to membership of Mount Juliet Golf Club without payment of an entry fee and subject only to the annual membership fee. Purchasers are also entitled to use the Estate’s leisure centre. A service charge of IR£3,250 covers insurance and security costs and the maintenance of the extensive landscaped areas.
