Former barracks with a 100ft model railway
The Barracks, Gorvagh, Mohill, Co Leitrim
Five-bedroom detached period house with model railway on one acre
Built in the 1890s as a barracks for the Royal Irish Constabulary, this charming 130sqm house was refurbished in the last 17 years, with the installation of central heating, double glazing and better insulation.
The entrance hallway has the original red and black quarry tiles. To the right of the hall is a large lounge, with a solid-wood floor, timber-framed windows to front and back and a restored Victorian fireplace.
The kitchen/diner, which has been fitted with modern solid-wood kitchen units, has a Chinese slate floor. The brick fireplace has been restored and is home to a Stanley 9 solid fuel range. A utility room contains the central heating boiler, butler sink, and washing machine.
Upstairs are four double-bedrooms, a study, and a shower room. The family bathroom is on the ground floor.
Outside is a garage/workshop and summer house. The gardens have herbaceous borders, an orchard and a kitchen garden.
Pros: Not many houses come with their own 100ft long model railway at the bottom of the garden.
Cons: Décor needs updating.
