Description

Donal Boyd Auctioneers are delighted to present Emmet House to the market.  Situated in a prominent position fronting onto Emmet Square & Emmet Street, and dating from the 1800’s, this magnificent corner sited three bay, three storey over basement property is sure to attract the attention of a wide audience.  Comprising of 7 Bedrooms (of which 6 are Ensuite) Emmet House is currently being run as a boutique style B&B however the property would also suit a variety of uses such as an office hub, a restaurant/cafe or indeed as a private residence (subject to the necessary planning permission/change of use).

The current owners completely renovated and modernised the property in 2009 providing for every luxurious convenience a discerning purchaser would expect in a modern day property, whilst still retaining its Georgian charm and features.  Re-wired and re-plumbed throughout, a new roof was also added together with tastefully appointed fresh and modern ensuites throughout.  One gets a sense of old world charm as they approach Emmet House; accessed by limestone steps the entrance porch has a beautiful carved masked keystone which adds to the charm as you walk through the double doors with stained glass inset into the superbly appointed main hall.  From here the accommodation is set out over three floors and is of generous and elegant proportions.  Period features are noted throughout from the superbly decorative cornicing, intricate ceiling roses and high ceilings to name but a few.  Emmet House also has beautiful enclosed patio area overlooking Emmet Square where the discerning purchaser can watch the world go by whilst being set well back from the road and sheltered by perimeter shrubs and plantings. 

Emmet House is centrally located in the historic town of Birr, a designated Irish Heritage Town, whereby all modern day amenities and services are located within.  Birr Main Street is a stones throw away with its eclectic mix of cafes, clothes shops, gift shops etc.  Birr Castle is also less than five minutes walk from Emmet House, providing acres of parkland and a fabulous playground for children and adults to enjoy.  Birr is conveniently located c.25minutes from any of the major road networks connecting Birr to cities like Dublin, Limerick, Galway etc.

Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all this wonderful property has to offer.
