DescriptionThis two bed property which is full of history is situated in an exclusive gated development in the former station house in Athboy. Located within minutes walk of the town with its shops, hotels, schools and many sporting clubs. The well maintained park and bus stop are just across the road.
The original station house property was built in 1838 and totally restored in 2010 to provide unique properties in a secure and private setting.
No 3 has still some of the original features intact, including working wooden window shutters, a flagstone on the floor of the sun terrace that once formed part of the platform, an overhead cast-iron truss that would have perhaps held the station name or clock and the guest WC, which was the former ticket office.
Entering through the front door and walking through the sun terrace, out to the sandstone paved back garden, there is surely a sense of the many clients who stood in that spot waiting on the on-coming train.
The charming accommodation includes, entrance hall, guest WC, open plan kitchen/living/dining, sun room, two bedrooms and bathroom.
The back garden is paved with sandstone, and surrounded by shrubs and trees. There is also a well maintained wooden garden shed.
Viewing of this historic property is highly recommended.
