In the middle of Lough Derg you will find an uninhabited island called Inis Cealtra meaning 'Holy Island' where pilgrims can go to find peace and tranquility on the once monastic site. Indeed, the words peace and tranquility are exactly what can be found at Inis Cealtra, Oxmantown Mall, Birr, Co.Offaly. Donal Boyd Auctioneers are delighted to introduce 'Inis Cealtra', Oxmantown Mall, a large family home set in one of the most highly sought after addresses in the Midlands, to the market Set behind high ornate wrought iron gates, and commanding a prime position on Oxmantown Mall in Birr, this striking detached 4 bedroom property is in excellent condition throughout and offers the discerning purchaser the opportunity to purchase a large family home in an extremely private and peaceful setting. Built in c.1978, with elegant and generous proportions throughout, accommodation is laid out over two floors and is configured to suit modern everyday living. From the moment you enter the property you are struck by how light and airy the property feels, and in particular the stunning entrance hall with its double height ceilings and curved staircase which certainly adds a 'wow' factor. Extending to c.2,530q.ft. there are a number of reception rooms at ground level including an extremely spacious living room with large picture windows and high ceilings, that leads to a well-proportioned sunroom that overlooks the beautiful rear garden. The remainder of the accommodation is well thought out in terms of space and design and playing centre stage in the kitchen is an original AGA which adds a homely feel to the space. There are 4 double bedrooms at first floor level together with a main bathroom and once again the first floor is flooded with light from the double height entrance hall. Whilst predominantly a family home over the last number of years, the property also housed a doctors surgery and this is evident where one can still see rooms designated as a surgery and a waiting room etc on the ground floor. This could be ideal for those looking to work from home as there is the added benefit of having an office and work space at ground level contained in the home. Oxmantown Mall was developed in 1810 and is steeped in history and character. Originally developed as a promenade for the towns gentry leading from the gate house of Birr Castle to Cumberland Street, it is seldom and rare that properties along the Mall come to the market for sale, thus making 'Inis Cealtra' a rare find. Birr is a vibrant town and although renowned from its Georgian heritage there are a wide variety of independent retailers and coffee shops as well as an abundance of schools, churches, hotels, leisure activities and sports clubs in the town and surrounding areas. Oxmantown Hall, which houses Oxmantown Theatre, is a cultural landmark in Birr, is located a stones throw from the property as well as Birr Castle, located at the other end of the tree lined Mall. Viewing is a must to appreciate all that this fantastic property has to offer.
