Magnificently finished three storey townhouse which is recently restored, maintaining all of its original character. This exceptional property comes complete with its own private off-street parking, which has gated, secure access off John Street. LOCATION Located on John Street in Sligo town centre, next to all local amenities. This charming four-bedroom spacious town house is located close to both of Sligo's Cathedrals and within a short walk of Sligo's main street, O'Connell Street. Everything in Sligo town is on the doorstep. DETAILS Laid out over three floors, this beautiful mixed zone commercial/ residential house was recently renovated & has an exceptional standard of finish throughout. The Chimes ran as a very successful guest house for five years - it was listed in the Irish Times top 100 best guest houses to stay in Ireland. At ground floor there is a living room and a separate kitchen area which opens out to a private rear yard complete with stone outbuildings. At first and second floor there are two bedrooms at each level complete with a shower room at first floor. Both of the two front bedrooms are particularly bright and spacious as is the entire property. The property has the huge benefit of having off-street car parking in the yard to the rear. Also, the stone outbuilding to the rear could possibly be converted into a home office if any purchaser required. OUTSIDE In the rear yard there is a stone-built outbuilding which is ideal for additional storage or possible conversion to an office/pottery/artists studio if required. This outbuilding also has potential to be converted into a separate dwelling / mews as it has its own access which would create a rental income for a potential buyer. The private rear courtyard is beautifully paved offering excellent outdoor space. There is private parking to the rear which has gated, secure access from John Street.
