Lots of character, prime location, development potential.
28 Main Street, Kingscourt has so much going for it. A prime Main Street location, plenty of space inside and to the back, and the potential for further commercial and/or residential development.
Covering c. 2,350 square feet, this 4 bedroom property sites on a site of almost a third of an acre and presents in good condition.
Inside on the ground floor, you will find the front sitting room/living room leading through to the kitchen and then onto 2 good sized downstairs bedrooms. Then go up one flight of stairs to find the generous main bathroom with wooden floors and a full bath. Up another flight of stairs you find the third large bedroom as well as the main sitting room/reception room overlooking Kingscourt’s Main Street. Imbued with history this room is distinctive, rich in character, and almost Joycean. It benefits from a marble fireplace and surround,in which sits a standalone stove.
Leaving the first floor sitting room, head up another flight of stairs to find the fourth bedroom, and then one last flight takes you to the attic space. Easily accessible and currently used for storage, this space too has character and it too could be made into something more, something better.
We are not done yet, go back downstairs to the lower ground floor to find the following: a side door entrance to adjoining alleyway (with secure access to Main Street); and a utility room space and WC—both of the last two spaces need renovation but they hint at the development potential available. That potential becomes clearer as you wander out into the huge backyard, stretching right back, almost as far as the local GAA grounds. Sitting on this backyard space is a range of old stone sheds (currently used for storage) the majority of which were fairly recently reroofed. These old stone sheds allow for the prospect of more: commercial development or further residential development, you name it, the possibilities are there—just add vision and resources.
Overall, this property is a delightful one. It has more than a hundred years of history and character, but is still in good condition—and it allows for the possibility of future development in a key part of town.
