Innisfree is an Edwardian house built in 1908 on the Clonminch Road. THIS STUNNING RESIDENCE NEEDS TO BE VISITED TO FULLY APPRECIATE THE PRIVATE YET CENTRAL LOCATION. This property has all the character and charm of a period house which has been thoughtfully updated with respect for the style of the home & an eye toward providing all of the desired modern amenities to make it a warm, light-filled residence for modern living. It is set on a large garden of over half an acre which gives it privacy and seclusion and the unique combination of country living in the middle of the town. It is located on the Clonminch Road, a short walk from the railway station, and only five minutes from the town centre.
The current owners purchased the property in 2013 and they have extensively renovated the house both inside and outside.
Upgrades included the installation of high-grade insulation, dry-lining, rewiring and re-plumbing, re-plastering, and a neat attic conversion. The addition of a single-storey extension to the rear, allowed for a new modern kitchen to be fitted, replacing the small galley kitchen in the old house.
The floor area is now 2,195 sq ft, and the energy rating is a creditable C3. There are still plenty of authentic features though, respecting its early 20th-century origins. These include high ceilings, sash windows, original floorboards and an original fireplace restored in local brick. Inside the front porch with the original marble floor, there's a wood-floored entrance hall with the living rooms to the right of it. At the front of the house is a sitting room with a bay window and marble fireplace. Beyond this is a lounge, with steps down from there through an archway to the open-plan dining room and kitchen.
The kitchen is Shaker-style and has a centre island with a breakfast bar under a skylight. The dining area has the restored brick fireplace and there are two sets of large triple-glazed patio doors providing easy access to the patio area and the garden.
There is also a utility room, bathroom and hotpress off the kitchen.
The first floor is split level, with a bedroom and bathroom on the return and three more bedrooms (one with an original cast-iron and tiled fireplace) on the first floor proper. The main bathroom has a laundry chute leading to the utility room downstairs. At the top of the house, via a spiral staircase, the converted attic is floored, carpeted and lit by two skylights.
The gorgeous garden has a number of large mature trees and shrubs and has been landscaped. Given the ample space, a home office could easily be accommodated.
There is ample car parking for several cars.
