DescriptionSet on a terrace of pretty red brick houses, no. 40 Whitworth Road is a deceptively spacious period residence with many original features, high ceilings and a large rear garden. The setting is ideal along the banks of the Royal Canal with beautiful views of the Canal and easy access to the Royal Canal Greenway which provides a 4.3km pedestrian and cycle route which leads to Ashtown.
The property which is in need of modernisation offers enormous potential as a fine family home with plenty of room to extend if desired. The accommodation comprises a large hallway leading to the living room to the front with cast iron fireplace. The dining room to the rear with tiled fireplace could be used as a third bedroom. The kitchen is fitted with floor units. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, the main room spans the width of the property with cast iron fireplace and two large windows.

To the front the garden is laid in lawn with a path leading to the hall door while the rear garden extends to approx. 18m with storage shed and pedestrian access to a gated laneway.
