When Sea View House was originally built in the 1930s, First Sea Road was little more than a green space outside Sligo town. Fast forward some 80 years, and it's now home to detached properties, apartment blocks and new housing estates. However, set back from the road, Sea View House still stands tall as a founding member.
The four-bedroom Edwardian-style house has been renovated a number of times over the years, including a new roof four years ago, and was fully dry-lined in the '80s.
The building itself is in good condition but the interiors are quite dated so new owners will probably want to redecorate.
The location, just two kilometres outside Sligo town, along with the size of the property (2,200 sq ft) means that this home will appeal to a family who are willing to take on a project.
Downstairs there is a sitting room with a fireplace with marble surround, a living room, bay-windowed dining room also with a fireplace with marble surround and a marble hearth, kitchen and utility.
For a house this size, the kitchen is quite small so knocking a wall or two to open the living space up will probably be on the cards.
Upstairs, the landing has a tilt and turn window that opens out to a balcony.
The master bedroom is large at 14ft square and has panelling on the wall and views out over the front garden. Bedroom two has a fireplace, as does bedroom three. The fourth bedroom has a wooden floor.
The main, and only, bathroom has a corner bath with electric shower.
The house sits on 0.75 of an acre that is mostly in lawn bordered with mature trees and shrubs that shelter it from the road.
There are also three storage rooms and a glasshouse outside.
It's on the market with a guide price of €525,000 through DNG Flanagan Ford (071) 915 9222.
