The Monastery, Moorpark Street, Birr, Offaly

8 beds Detached House 3 bath 4500 ft 2 Energy Rating


Donal Boyd Auctioneers are excited to present The Monastery to the market. This three story eight bedroom property has been lovingly restored and upgraded to provide a modern, stylish, home whilst remaining sympathetic to the Georgian era.
This impressive and well located Georgian building was originally built by the Hackett Family c 1800 and, as such, is among the older examples of such fine architecture and construction in Birr.
The Catholic Church purchased the house in 1878 to house a community of Presentation Brothers who remained in the house until 1997 and religious iconography can be seen throughout; the sacred heart over the front door and cross on the roof of the former chapel to the rear of the house.

The house stands on Moorpark Street, a stone's throw from Birr's Main Street and thereby close to all amenities and services located therein aswell as a variety of schools churches etc.

The residence lends itself to many possibilities; a family home or business opportunity and viewing is a must to appreciate all that this property has to offer
