Impressive and substantial period town house, (120 sqm) presented in walk-in condition with historic Drogheda connections. * Watch our walk-through video * Built for the famous Cairnes Brewery Trust at the turn of the last century No 20 Mary Street, one of three similar houses, is a perfect example of late Victorian architecture with many original features and layout still evident. It comprises a two storey over basement spacious family home (120sqm/1300 sq ft) on an elevated site with a large south facing terraced rear garden overlooking ‘The Dale’ below. The generous and unexpectedly bright accommodation is rent of that elegant bygone era when the main reception rooms were used solely for receiving visitors! Downstairs is the original kitchen which now serves as a dining room and which has been extended to incorporate a useful galley style kitchen with plenty of room to expand out into the courtyard if required. On the first floor return is a fully equipped utility and family bathroom, while the top floor offers three double bedrooms, one of which has a cleverly concealed en-suite shower room. The whole property was extensively refurbished about 10 years ago when it was re-wired, re-plumbed and a new roof installed. All in all, it is in walk in condition, and offers the fortunate new owners ample scope to further enhance this lovely period property with their own style and imaginative take on 21st century living in a beautiful late 19th century family home!
