This house is a rare and fine example of a period property which has been extended and fully renovated to an extremely high standard.
Physical viewing advised as this stunning house is likely to sell quickly (turnkey condition).
Entering through a magnificent solid front door (with intricate hand crafted corbels), you enter into a spacious and impressive hallway with solid oak flooring, original cornicing, extremely high ceiling, white panelled living room and dining room doors, and a new oak stepped staircase that continues over three levels up to the converted attic rooms.
The bright living room enjoys high ceilings (almost ten foot high), beautiful cornicing, curved top timber sliding sash window, original window surround timber boxes, large marble fireplace and marble hearth, solid oak flooring and original panelled door.
The dining room also enjoys a high ceiling, beautiful cornicing and a large open fireplace which the current owners have cleverly added a shelf partly recessed into the chimney breast. Ideal space to entertain.
The kitchen is bright, airy and spacious. Kitchen table with four chairs. Custom built kitchen with Iroko wood surrounds. Ceramic sink. Induction hob with two cookers. Solid timber sideboard. Plenty of storage.
Off the kitchen, double doors lead out into the well kept back garden. An Inside / Outside Garden room (home gym / bar) is accessed via bi-folding doors which can fully retract to create an inside / outside living space.
Off the kitchen, there is a separate utility room (with chest freezer, washing machine, drier, and plenty of storage space). Ceramic sink. A window opens into the home gym / bar and can double as a serving hatch when entertaining.
Downstairs WC (with shower) is accessed off the hallway. A frosted window throws in lots of natural light.
The newly built bathroom is off the half landing and enjoys great proportions, with a high ceiling. High quality fittings and sanitary ware include Jacuzzi bath with mixer taps and shower head, a separate ‘rainfall’ shower head, and Hollywood style lit mirror.
Three bedrooms are located on the first floor.
The Master bedroom enjoys its own en-suite (with power shower). The original fireplace is still intact. Bedroom number two would comfortably accommodate a double bed and also has its original fireplace intact. Bedroom number three is a single bedroom.
The attic is converted. Arriving on the attic hallway on the left there is a walk-in wardrobe with sliding door, shelving, skylight and access door to floored storage under the eaves. There was provision made re: plumbing (water in / waste out etc.) should a future buyer wish to add a WC in this space.
Off the attic hallway on the right is storage space. At the end of the corridor is a separate room with skylight, fitted blind, laminate flooring and access doors to floored storage under the eaves. The current owners currently use this room as a home office.

A Little Bit of History...
Number 1 was originally built as the Manager’s house for The Old Mill, with the adjoining house built for the Assistant Manager. As it was the Manager’s house, it was built to be slightly larger than the Assistant Manager’s house! It also enjoys larger proportions to other houses nearby (Leinster/Munster/Ulster/Connaught Street and Shandon).
