The Square, Freshford, Kilkenny R95C578

Investment Property 1575 m 2 Energy Rating


St Catherine’s is a large two storey house located on the Square, Freshford, Co. Kilkenny. The substantial period house retains many of the original Victorian features and detail. The building was converted and extended as a nursing home over 25 years ago as a HIQUA approved nursing home. To the rear of the main house, there are a number of single storey residential blocks which provide extensive guest accommodation with the additional benefit of a commercial kitchen. The property has the potential for redevelopment including as a private family home, guesthouse, day care centre, medical practice or community / education facility. The buildings are in good condition having been well maintained over the years.

There is a separate side access to the property through large double gates leading to the garden and service area. This area could be separated away from the main house as a standalone community facility.

Overall, St Catherine’s represents a unique opportunity to acquire a unique period property in excellent condition. Viewing is strongly advised to appreciate the potential of the property. Full floor plans and drawings are available on request.
