Buyers will be on the right track with railway cottage

Cathal Moran & Co Auctioneers are handling the sale of an attractive railway cottage at the entrance to Athenry Station which is full of character and charm.

The property is a beautiful and tastefully-restored stone clad cottage of unique architectural design dating back to the Great Southern Railway circa 1852.

Exquisitely finished, it retains many of the fantastic original features throughout, none more so than the attractive stone façade with feature windows, front doorway and pepper canister type design. The property is a protected structure and the accommodation is centred around a central chimney breast offering four fireplaces to the home.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, kitchen/dining/sitting room with fireplace and storage loft, toilet/shower room and two bedrooms with feature fireplaces.

Outside, there is parking for two cars, as well as a garden and patio area and separate walled garden with stone shed and toilet.

Features of the cottage include hardwood double-glazed windows; two solid fuel stoves – one dating to the 1870s; modern electric storage heaters; underfloor heating in bathroom; custom-made kitchen with Belfast sink; wooden shutters; attic space superbly insulated and the property has been rewired and re-plumbed.

Selling agent Cathal Moran said: “The arrival of this property on the market offers a rare opportunity to acquire a splendid railway property in such good condition having been modernised and so sensitively restored in recent years.

“It occupies a prominent town centre position at the entrance road to Athenry Train Station within walking distance of all amenities and facilities in the town centre.”

The asking price is €165,000. For further information or to arrange a viewing, contact Cathal Moran Auctioneers on 091 850802.
