County Donegal, William Street

House • 6 Bed. • 4 Bath. • 200 m² • Ground floor

A 2.5 floor Residential AND Commercial property. This historic property is not listed, so internal redesign is fine, but the building has to maintain its exterior theme to match the city's Historic Heritage status. Rear property extension area is not limited and may be modified. There is CCTV covering all exterior areas.

The history of the foundation was initially part of the Cathedral across the street as part of the 'close' (where the monks stayed) in the late 1600's and has been rebuilt several times as part of (what was then) the walled city.  The current main walls are 1m thick. The fireplaces on the ground floor have been removed, the only functioning fireplace is on the 1st floor in, what is currently, the living room. The oldest picture found was from the 1890's. There have been many residences and shops over the centuries. 

The 1st and 2nd floors are built with 3 bedrooms. The 1st floor has been completely rebuilt with very modern materials and following the latest structural, electrical, and plumbing laws and codes.. The 1st floor contains a kitchen with new appliances and dining room, bed room, living room, large main bathroom. The doorways are wider for mobility impared access. Everything on the 1st floor is newly redesigned and has been highly insulated. The rooms are furnished in old Victorian theme. The lights in the kitchen and dining room are smart.

A new staircase has been added to the ground floor back room. There is a need for a spiral stair to the 2nd floor to the 2 bedrooms and another bathroom.

On the ground floor there is a bathroom for men and one for women. The back area was being redesigned as a residential spare bedroom and guest living room. There is also a guest bathroom. This main front area used to be a tavern. It has limited redecoration to reopen as a coffee shop.

The owners were unable to complete the plan due to Covid restrictions and moved, a caretaker is currently in residence who will leave the property on sale.
