Cross Street, Athenry.

Frank Sweeney & Co are handling the sale of a 3/4-bed period townhouse in the centre of Athenry.

The property at Cross Street dates back to 1902 and is in need of renovation, but offers great potential. There is a long beautiful garden to the rear that has a sunny aspect. This garden is a haven with its patio area, lawn and seating area. The garden has a rear entrance through a gateway to the rear and there are some quaint stone sheds with slate roofs to the rear. It has double glazing throughout and is heated by oil-fired central heating.

The front of the property has a wonderful cut limestone finish. It was originally built as residence for RIC soldiers based at the barracks across the road.

Inside there are many original features like coving, window shutters, original floorboards and feature fireplaces. This is in the heart of the town and the purchaser will benefit from being located within walking distance of all the town’s amenities.

Once renovated, this property of significant architectural and historical importance would be one of the finest properties in Athenry town centre.

The asking price is €270,000. For further information, contact Frank Sweeney & Co on 091 844126.
