DescriptionImposing landmark Victorian residence on a nice site zoned commercial/mixed use in the centre of Gorey town. The property is situated in a high profile position fronting onto the roundabout at the junction of the Avenue and Railway Road. The property is just metres from Gorey Railway Station and a short stroll from the Main Street in a busy commercial centre adjacent to Gorey Shopping Centre.
'Glenbower House' itself is in excellent condition and is possibly the finest example of Victorian architecture in Gorey town. The landmark property is one of the best known properties in Gorey. The property retains many of its original features such as generous ceiling heights, plaster coving, marble fireplaces, timber floors, cut-string stairs etc. while having been revamped into modern office accommodation.
Glenbower House is flanked by a courtyard of out-offices including stables, coach houses, lofted barns, workshops, etc. and a large yard providing off street parking. There is a further option to purchase a large site/garden to the side of the residence at an extra cost.
HISTORY: 'Glenbower House', as well as being an imposing Gorey landmark property is also steeped in history. As far as we can ascertain, the property started life as a merchant's yard and Coach Builders. It was then converted to the 'Railway Hotel' and subsequently used for residential purposes. The property was well known as Warrens Solicitors offices in town and more recently has served as a corporate headquarters for Softouch Technologies which is a thriving IT firm.
Glenbower House provides a rare opportunity to acquire a high profile landmark period property which could be used as either a modern office premises or a luxury town centre period home or a mixture of both!
