The Laurels is an exceptionally well located period house in need of full renovation. It is rare for a property such as this to come to the market offering a new owner potential for a unique home in an ideal setting. Situated a short walk from Westport town centre, the property was originally built circa 1794 as a military hospital for the adjacent Westport Infantry Barracks. It has been extended a number of times over the years to give a floor area of approximately 170 sqm/1,830 sq ft. The property was sold in 1901 and converted to a family residence. It could now lend itself to further extension and potentially conversion to suit a number of alternative uses subject to planning permission. Accommodation comprises of entrance hall, living room, dining room, kitchen, scullery, five bedrooms and a bathroom. The house s original fireplaces have been removed for restoration and will be sold with the property. Other period features remain including embossed panel doors and some of the timber window shutters. Externally the house sits on a generously sized south/west facing garden with ample parking space to the front. The property is located just 400 metres from Westport town centre. The Westport Greenway pedestrian/cycle way linking the town and Westport Quay can be accessed from several nearby points. Westport is a vibrant town with all necessary amenities within walking distance including a choice of primary and secondary schools, shops, restaurants, hotels, leisure centre, cinema, traditional and modern bars.
