OVERLOOKING the island in King’s Channel, Castleview on the Williamstown Road has been the source of much local conversation and curiosity since work finally began on the site, which features 23 detached four-to-five-bedroom houses.
Unlike other new building projects around the country, Castleview, developed by Glorious Ways Development Ltd with DNG Reid & Coppinger as Selling Agents, does not feature semi-detached or apartment accommodation.
It boasts 13 five-bed and 10 four-bed homes; spacious contemporary living in hi-spec, beautifully finished homes, complete with a generous list of allowances. It’s also a self-contained site within a very well-established and popular city suburb which will unquestionably create great interest among home hunters.
The transformation of the site, which is a short walk from Gaelscoil Phortláirge, St Mary’s National School, Ballygunner GAA Club, Gaelcholáiste Phort Láirge and St Mary’s Church, has proven one of the locality’s most significant talking points over the past 20 months. Indeed, many a walk has been interrupted by peering over the entrance to check out its progress!
It’s conveniently located to a range of other amenities and features luxurious living space, just a short drive from Passage East, Woodstown, Dunmore East and Tramore, along with the Outer Ring Road and the M9 motorway.
The combination of a compact urban centre and the beautiful East Waterford countryside on one’s doorstep, along with the Hook Peninsula via the Passage East Car Ferry, makes Castleview the ideal location to achieve a more balanced lifestyle. And with guaranteed cutting edge internet access speeds secured through a local fibre network, home office and educational needs are also superbly catered for inside one’s front door.
Also located on a bus route, Castleview is also within close proximity to a range of primary and secondary schools, along with Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) whose Cork Road and West Campuses will soon form part of the Technological University of the South East (TUSE). University Hospital Waterford (UHW), the Waterford Primary Care Centre on John’s Hill and UPMC Whitfield Clinic are also within proximity of the development, so too Plunkett Railway Station and Ireland’s two largest bridges, the TF Meagher Bridge (to the M9) and the Rose F Kennedy Bridge (to the M11).
With Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Club and the Woodlands Hotel also nearby, along with Ardkeen Stores, the Ardkeen branches of Tesco, Lidl and Aldi and the Ballinakill Shopping Centre, Castleview is the epitome of Waterford suburban convenience.
