Description

Hickey O'Donoghue are delighted to bring to the market this magnificent detached multiple bay two storey house built in c.1760 with spectacular river views. This property is full of the character and charm one associates with a property of this era. Jackson's Turret was designed by the French Architect Ducart who also designed The Custom House accross the river (now the Hunt Museum). The First Floor Turret room was used as a lookout up and down the river to ensure all river traffic paid their taxes at the custom house. The dining room on the ground floor was formally the boat room and was used to store longboats when not being launched into the river. The property was later converted in c.1920 to a splendid family house, and it undoubtedly constitutes significantly to the architectural heritage of the city, adding to the distinctly varied house and building types on Clancy Strand.
This property oozes charm from it's three sided bow-end bay windows framing the river views, to it's steeply pitched hipped slate roof, limestone cills, cast iron rainwater goods, original windows with cylinder and crown glass surviving throughout and decorative slender canopies with painted rendered walls.
The property sits on a 0.23 acre site with original high rubble stone wall to front offering complete privacy and also benefits from electronic vehicular gate with separate pedestrian access onto Clancy Strand. The property sits on an elevated perch and it's gravel driveway descends down onto Clancy Strand.
