*******OPEN TO OFFERS******* Superb opportunity to acquire a unique period townhouse in a town centre location along with an established menswear shop with a sitting tenant. This terraced two-bay three storey house containing a recessed arch with an oriel window is a most unique design and adds curiosity to the streetscape. This house was built by Robert Smith in 1895, who was a major local builder at the time. Behind its attractive facade this house features a character filled interior which could be lovingly restored by the potential purchaser. Today, separated into a 4-bedroom house and retail unit, the property still retains much of its natural beauty with its large open hallway, 10ft high ceilings in drawing room, ornate coving and rear courtyard. The house enjoys an extremely convenient location with a wide range of amenities within touching distance. Church Street is on its doorsteps and Athlone Town Centre and Golden Island Shopping Centres are within a 5-10 minute’s walk. There is a great selection of cafes, restaurants and bars within a short stroll from the house. One would need to view to fully appreciate what this unique town centre home has to offer.
