DescriptionO'Connor Murphy are delighted to bring to the market "Mignon" on the prestigious Clancy's Strand. Built c. 1890 a very fine two storey red brick residence superbly positioned in this most convenient location overlooking the majestic River Shannon whilst being adjacent to a host of amenities within walking distance of the City Centre. "Mignon" forms part of a row of highly individualistic Victorian red brick houses located on Clancy's Strand close to the former Houses of Industry (later the Strand Barracks) distinguished by its steeply pitched gable front elevation.
On arrival you will be impressed by its elegant redbrick facade with the home enclosed by rendered pillars supporting elaborate cast-iron railings forming a pedestrian panelled timber gate with tiled front pathway.
The accommodation extends to approximately 160 sqm (1722.23 sqft) and out laid out across over two floors. Internally, the accommodation briefly comprises: Hallway; Guest WC; Two Reception Rooms; Garage; Kitchen; Four Bedrooms & a Family Bathroom.
On arrival a welcoming tiled porch provides shelter from the rain & from the offset " Bienvenue" is the most apt word to describe this warm & heartening home! There is a generous hallway with many of old features retained wonderful high ceilings with ornate cornice & coving leads to on your left a reception room overlooking the front garden making this space an ideal family room/living room. Morning sun floods this space with exquisite sash windows & feature shutters, high ceilings with the same feature cornice & coving. With the original fireplace still in place altogether creates a truly superb room. Moving to the second reception room & at the rear of the home, again with ornate feature fireplace, high ceilings; cornice & coving & timber flooring making a perfect second space for your recreational/family needs. To the rear of the home is a recently added extension, home to a spacious kitchen with dual aspect & amazing garden views. Fully fitted wall & floor units make this space practicable for mealtimes or family gatherings. The kitchen is bright & airy and access from here via French double doors to the private, enclosed rear garden.
On the first floor there are four well sized bedrooms and a pull-down ladder to the converted attic. Each bedroom continues to retain many of the wonderful features with high ceilings, sash windows & feature ornate fireplaces. The newly renovated family bathroom comes complete with bath & electric shower.
Outside, to the front a gated entrance leads to a small gravel area which is easy to maintain. To the rear there is a low maintenance fully enclosed private garden with a blend of lawn & patio. The property enjoys immense privacy to the rear & would be difficult to find better in such a central location. A great space for summer barbeques or a peaceful morning coffee!
Clancy's Strand is situated on the banks of the river Shannon, near Thomond Bridge, with great views of King John's Castle and the Curragower falls. Clancy's Strand was also the location of the former army barracks, the Strand Barracks. It is walking distance from the city centre & close to many shops, bars & restaurants. An ideal location in one of Limerick's most sought-after addresses! There's a little riverside park directly across the road from which to take in a view of King John's Castle, the oarsmen skulling up the river from nearby boat-clubs or watch the swans surfing the gentle Curragower falls as the tide comes in.
Rarely does a home of this character & charm come to the market, having been lovingly cared for by its current owners it is truly a dream home. Bearing actual scars of history: 'At the height of the Irish Civil War, the Strand Barracks (near next door), was besieged by Free State troops. Whilst steeped in Limerick history, there is plenty of peace & tranquillity surrounding this property for someone to call it home!
