28B is a Georgian period-era home and a half (it has a basement) that is located in the centre of the town with all the action year-round thanks to a street-wise location. Dating back many decades the bones of the period Georgian House that once was is still prevalent throughout the property, all the original Georgian windows and shutters are still in place with extra high ceilings and over-generous room portions which all add to the sense of great internal floor space. The property is in need of a top-to-toe makeover but has massive potential to be a truly amazing property once again, with terraced back garden access below street level which could make a lovely patio/garden area. And, then, on its 3 other/upper levels, there's the rest of the house, with a ground-floor bedroom that is En-suite, and a first-level floor bedroom that is also En-suite and finally a top floor level which has a magnificent loft-style open-plan kitchen cum dining and living room area with an extra-large stove, large French doors (inside a railed balcony/balustrade) with fabulous views overlooking Kinsale harbour, there is also a large bay window that allows and commands more views of the harbour as well. All in the property weighs in at a very spacious 210 sq. m - or (2,260 sq. ft.) In short, the property presents an opportunity to purchase a period residence with plenty of old-world charm and architectural grandeur in the heart of Kinsale town centre with simply great views of the inner harbour and marina. Viewing is highly recommended but strictly by appointment only. This property is for sale by auction in partnership with The Munster Property Auction.
