Four-bed, Dunmore Road – €795,000

6 Rocksprings is a spacious four-bed home built in 1982. With a floor area of 294 m² inside and a big garden outside, space certainly isn’t an issue. This property with its striking exterior was sympathetically extended in 2006, so the add-on doesn’t look too modern or out of place. Inside has somewhat of an interesting layout, with three of the four bedrooms downstairs. The ground floor also comprises an open plan space that includes the living space, dining space, a roomy sunroom and a reading room. 

This house at Rocksprings is on a quiet cul-de-sac, which instantly makes you think of a close-knit community and very little street noise. Perched on top of a hill, number 6 offers countryside views to the southeast while being just over a ten minute drive to Waterford city, providing the best of both worlds.
