Waterford City is the oldest city in Ireland and has the perfect blend of ancient and modern architecture. Waterford has an excellent choice of visitor attractions from the spectacular Copper Coast Geopark to Waterford's Viking Triangle, and of course The House of Waterford Crystal, renowned the world over for their craftsmanship.
Waterford City offers plenty of shopping options, with many cosy pubs, traditional music and excellent seafood. For the outdoor enthusiast, the Comeragh Mountains offer a fantastic location for cycling, climbing and hiking.
The Waterford Foxhounds meet in the local area and there is fishing on local rivers such as the River Suir as well as several local lakes within the County. Golf courses nearby include Waterford Golf Club, Waterford Hotel and Golf Resort, Williamstown Golf Club, Dunmore East Golf Club, Tramore Golf Club and Faithlegg House Hotel and Golf Resort and the property is within 15 minutes of the beaches at the Copper Coast.
There is a good selection of primary and secondary schools in the surrounding area.
Built in 1991 and presented in excellent condition, Thornbrook is a two storey country residence that lends itself well to family living, with about 205 sq m / 2,207 sq ft of well laid out accommodation (see floorplans).
