DescriptionSherry FitzGerald are delighted to welcome you to No.1 The Old Vicarage. Located in the heart of Swords Village, this stunning end of terrace residence dates back to the 17th century.
This unique property sits amongst the village's medieval landmarks, including St Columba's Church, and the historic Round Tower. The property is a stone's throw away from the beautifully refurbished Swords Castle and St Colmcille's Well, from which the town of Swords derives its name.
Surrounded by tranquil and mature communal gardens, the Old Vicarage has been converted into a private terrace, with Number One occupying 1,400 sq ft (approx) of this elegant stone-facaded building.
Upon entering, one will instantly admire the current owners' attention to detail throughout the property, which has been wonderfully preserved and meticulously maintained throughout. The most striking feature of the ground floor is the magnificent living room, enjoying many fine architectural embellishments of its era, including an elaborately plastered Grade II listed Rococo ceiling, which dates back to 1812. This classically elegant room, which is ideal for entertaining, has an impressive open fireplace, and the entire 14ft floor to ceiling height, is illuminated by two large south facing windows. A traditional fitted kitchen/breakfast room completes the accommodation on the ground floor. The kitchen comprises solid antique pine wall and floor units, and Bosch integrated appliances.
The upstairs accommodation comprises two bedrooms and a bathroom. The first bedroom you enter is a charming double bedroom, with wide plank solid oak flooring, high ceiling and feature window with views across to St Columba's Church and round tower. The main bedroom is another extremely spacious, bright bedroom with high sloped ceiling, matching solid oak flooring, and charming feature window above the bedhead, once again overlooking the Church and round tower. A modern, sleek bathroom, fully tiled with large ceramic tiles, and quality Duravit sanitary ware, completes the accommodation on the upper floor.
With its prime location just off Main Street Swords, this highly sought after gated development is surrounded by every possible amenity, including schools, the Pavilions Shopping Centre, and numerous leisure and social facilities. The entrance to the Ward River Valley Park is but a few hundred metres away, with its walkways, playgrounds and dog run.
The property is just a short drive to Airside Retail Park, Dublin Airport and the M50/M1 motorways. Swords is well serviced by an excellent transport system, including the Swords Express, running frequently to Dublin City Centre.
No 1 The Old Vicarage offers a discerning purchaser a piece of history surrounded by modern life. An opportunity certainly not to be missed.
