Originally featured as a single-lot receiver sale on these pages in April, Priors Point was snapped up and redeveloped by KDM Engineering Group in double-quick time and comes on to the market now as fully-fledged luxury homes geared as much toward the weekender family as the residential one.
Fifteen properties make up the development, in three styles, but six are being sold currently. 'The Admiral' is a four-bedroom detached house over three floors at 2,045 sq ft featuring a Canadian Cedar exterior and plenty of light overlooking the river. Entrance is on the middle floor or upper ground level where you will find the kitchen/dining/living area with a balcony to the front.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, the master is ensuite with a walk-in wardrobe and there is a family bathroom. The lower ground floor has been converted into a self-contained 'guest suite' with an ensuite bedroom and living area, but this might easily be a den, office or playroom, although it will scream 'party room' for many. A nice feature is the glass atrium which leads directly above to the sitting room. There is a patio leading out onto the garden at this level also.
'The Commodore' is smaller at 1,800 sq ft, also over three storeys. The kitchen/dining area runs the length of the house, leading to a patio. There are four double bedrooms, all ensuite, with two sharing a Jack & Jill bathroom. There is also a family room and a study. Three of the bedrooms are on the upper floor while one is again located on the lower ground.
Kitchens are finished with granite worktops and in shaker style. Similarly-finished interior doors come in a choice of walnut, oak or painted. There is a private marina on site, so it would suit any boat-owners to moor here. Prices range from €215,000 - €275,000 depending on the style. Each property has extensive river views. Carrick-on-Shannon has 750km of cruising river available.
