'The Old Church' is a unique property on offer on the outskirts of Waterford city, giving potential buyers the chance of a piece of history blended with modernity.

This new listing in Killotteran near Waterford city is on the market for €875,000.


The Old Church is one of the 'most unique homes to come on the market in some time'.

Its origins date back to 612AD with its current structure built in 1858. This property lay derelict for a number of years, however, before being transformed into a residence by its current owners, who later expanded it in 2008 with a modern zinc-clad extension, which managed to enhance both the living and entertaining space.

The result is a five-bed home which truly stands out.


Upon entering the porch, the original mosaic-tiled aisle guides you through the living room to the dining area and elevated kitchen which formerly housed the church altar. Off the kitchen, the vestry is now a coldroom/pantry.

An open thread oak staircase ascends from the living room to the first floor, featuring three bedrooms and a bathroom. The principal bedroom includes a storage and dressing area with a recessed sleeping space.

A bright, floor-lit corridor connects the old and new sections of the building.

The new extension includes a spacious sunroom which opens onto an outdoor deck. This section also contains a den, a guest bedroom with a walk-in closet, a bathroom, and a large utility room.


Throughout the home, numerous original features have been preserved, including mosaic floors, exposed oak A-frames and some of the original diamond fenestration on the interior. New purlins were crafted from local douglas fir.

The floors are made of pitch pine salvaged from the old Graves Hardware building, as is the fireplace beam. The kitchen is also constructed from pitch pine repurposed from the salvaged staircase of Graves Ltd.

Upstairs, the floors are Irish larch, while the kitchen and new extension floors are Indonesian merbau.


The Old Church is perfectly located to make use of Waterford Greenway to access the city or head west to Kilmacthomas or even Dungarvan. It is conveniently located just minutes away from Mount Congreve Gardens, Arclabs, SETU Arena, Whitfield Medical Clinic, Butlerstown Retail Park and Waterford City, with easy access to the M9 and N25 road network for convenient commuting.

The sea is just 10 minutes away in Tramore while the mountains are just 35 minutes away.

Located on an equestrian centre, beside the Waterford Greenway, Killotteran Old Church offers an unparalleled countryside lifestyle while minutes from the city.

The new owners will benefit from high-speed fibre broadband and an EV car charging port.
