Property: The Harbour Masters House, Shannon Harbour, Banagher
New to the market is The Harbourmasters House, directly beside the water in Shannon Harbour on the Grand Canal where it meets the River Shannon.
This is a beautifully presented Georgian house constructed in the early 19th century, when the Grand Canal was built from the Shannon to Dublin, predating the railways.
It has been recently uses as a B&B specialising in fishing holidays, and previously as the family home of the Harbourmaster until the canal closed commercially. It features seven en-suite bedrooms, seven reception rooms, eight bathrooms, a large dining room, a fitted kitchen, various out offices, a laundry room, and has a walled garden landscaped by Birr Castle landscapers. It has lots of potential as a hideaway home, an Airbnb investment, B&B or a waterside restaurant.
Other features include a sun terrace, alarm, timber double glazed sash windows, exposed timber beams, oil fired central heating, solid fuel stove, stone and brick open fireplaces, manicured gardens and more.
The property is approximately 250 square metres and is BER exempt. It must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
