The Moorings, Ballymahon Road, Athlone, Co Westmeath, N37 N285

€325,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty 359 sqm approx


Large detached three-bay two-storey over basement Victorian house, measuring in excess of 400m2, built c.1835, renovated c.1880 and again c.1990, with single-bay single-storey extension to north and canted bay windows and central conservatory porch added to entrance front (west). Two-storey flat roofed extension to rear, c.1975, house now divided into flats. Hipped natural slates with wide bracketed eaves, hipped roof to north extension. Attractive exposed natural tone walls with raised stone quoins to corners. Square-headed window openings to first floor with cut stone sills, replacement windows and hood mouldings over. Central window to first floor has cast-iron balcony. Margin timber windows to canted bays to ground floor. Door case behind conservatory. Set back from road in extensive grounds measuring 0.9 acres with outbuilding to rear (east) and entrance gateway to the northwest and ample circulation space and car parking and attractive gardens.

A well-composed, middle-size house of balanced proportions and classical symmetry, which retains most of its original form and massing.

It was given a Gothic make-over in the late nineteenth-century creating a charming residence. It remains an attractive feature in mature grounds on the Ballymahon Road to the north of Athlone and about five minutes’ drive from the town centre and forms an interesting group with the gateway to the west. This was the family home of the Broderick Family a well-known local business family

It was once home of the well-known Irish novelist John Broderick, who wrote controversial and salacious novels (for the time) purporting to feature local people in compromising situations.

He sold the house in the late 80s to retire to Bath.

The house is currently sub-divided into three residential units yielding a steady annual rental income but could easily be reinstated into a gracious large detached residence close the centre of this thriving midlands town.
