Description

Coldwell Banker Commercial Global Luxury assisted by Casey Kennedy Estate Agents proudly present this exceptional opportunity to acquire a DUAL PURPOSE PLOT with FPP for 680sq.m. development, together with a delightfully restored 5 bedroom, 307sq.m. Regency Period Manor House in beautiful walk-in condition, which is currently in use as a family home.

Within the town of Enniscorthy, just 220 metres from the main street and 100 metres from Abbey Square Shopping Centre, privately secluded behind high walls and an arched gateway lies this beautifully renovated Regency Period Manor House of distinction. This is a detached property surrounded by mature and tastefully landscaped low maintenance gardens. The entrance is off quiet Mill Yard Lane, just up the hill from The Promenade beside the River Slaney

Alongside the Manor House there is a distinct 1/6th acre plot which has FULL PLANNING PERMISSION for 680 sq.m. of tourist accommodation over three storeys, with 13 bedrooms containing 30 guest beds (granted Oct 2021 ref: 20210727).

This town centre zoned site in a prominent location on Mill Park Road has enormous potential for an abundance of alternative uses, either residential or commercial, such as a boutique hotel, creche, nursing home, corporate HQ, mixed use development, houses or apartments (S.P.P.). This site currently holds a 2 bed gate house and two derelict cottages which could be restored for additional income, taking advantage of up to €140,000 in vacant/derelict home grants.

Manor House was originally constructed in the early 1800s. In 1884 it was the home of Albert Samuel Davis, a Quaker who owned a local flour mill. It is not a protected structure, but it is listed in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage which notes many of its period features. It has been sensitively restored by the current owners who have retained these features, especially the beautiful doorway with arched fanlight typical of the Georgian period, the arched window on the half landing, and the decorative plasterwork in the drawing room and dining room.

The first thing you notice about the house is its elevated position surrounded by a mature and eclectic garden. As you go up the front steps and pass through the imposing front door you enter into an impressive and spacious hallway showcasing the wide staircase with a feature arched window. Off this hallway to your left is the drawing room with its very attractive dual aspect bay windows and period fireplace. A formal dining room with an arched recess and a further bay window lies off to the right of the hallway. The kitchen is split into two rooms with the dining area separate from the working area. Original tiles have been retained as well as the introduction of a traditional Aga. On this level there is also a modern guest WC with shower, and a scullery / pantry. To the rear are a wine store, large storage room, boiler room and fuel stores.

Upstairs are 4 beautifully proportioned double bedrooms with 2 en-suites, a 5th bedroom currently in use as a walk-in wardrobe, and a family bathroom.

Outside the quirky garden area boasts a selection of mature plants and trees including cordylines and monkey puzzle trees. Several seating areas are dotted around the garden. There are gardens on all four sides ensuring you can enjoy the sunlight any time the sun is shining, which in the sunny south east is a bit more often than elsewhere in the country.

This property is less than 100 metres from the beautiful 3km tree-lined pedestrian promenade along the River Slaney. All the amenities that this prosperous and bustling town has to offer are right on your doorstep. The house is also a mere 5 minute walk from both the bus station and the train station. Viewing is a must for anyone seeking a restored period family home with additional development / income potential. Viewings are strictly by appointment through joint agents Coldwell Banker Global Luxury and Casey Kennedy Estate Agents.
