Standing amongst 0.7 acres of private landscaped gardens just outside of Waterford city, this restored Edwardian home comes to the market with an asking price of €1.2m.
Built in 1902 and extending to 280sqm, the current owners have modernised Mayville, while keeping many of its original period features. These include sliding sash windows, mosaic tiled floors, cornices, picture rails and working window shutters.
There is an original moulded mahogany fireplace with decorative tiled hearth and projecting art-deco hood in the drawing room, while a white marble fireplace is in the sitting room.
The kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances. There is a breakfast bar, guest bathroom and a feature brick fireplace with oil-fired Aga cooker, which heats water for the entire house.
Upstairs, the east wing of the house has two bedrooms and a bathroom, with freestanding antique bath and double shower unit.
The other three bedrooms have original fireplaces, while the master bedroom has fitted double wardrobes and double southwest-facing windows.
Outside are landscaped gardens and a large patio area with log shed. To the front, there are automatic entrance gates leading to a forecourt area for multiple car parking.
Mayville has south-west facing views of the city and the Comeragh Mountains, and a double garage, which could become residential or office accommodation, subject to planning permission.
