Where: 21 Otteran Place, South Parade, Waterford.
How much: €320,000
AN extremely rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a Georgian style property in one for Waterford city centre’s most desirable locations.
No. 21 Otteran Place, located on South Parade, is one of five terraced properties. It is a two-storey over part-raised basement red brick residence with dormer attic. Constructed in c. 1890 the property is an architecturally charming and characteristic terraced townhouse, retaining its original aspect with exterior limestone steps and bay cantilevered window to ground floor on cast-iron piers.
The retained original exterior of redbrick Flemish bond walls with moulded red brick parapet add particular charm and make for a very attractive first impression.
South Parade is arguably one of Waterford City’s most desired Georgian terraced street. No. 21 Otteran Place is situated directly opposite the People’s Park. The location is second-to-none in terms of convenience, with the city centre just a short stroll away.
Although requiring refurbishment and modernisation throughout, the property presents ample opportunity to restore the residence to its former glory. It hosts a veritable cornucopia of original architectural traits, including feature stone and tiled fireplaces throughout; ornate ceiling roses; Georgian archways and cornices; high ceilings with picture frame rails; coving and skirting, and a feature staircase with mahogany banister.
To the rear is a separate internal staircase providing access to a full basement. This also has the additional benefit of its own front door exiting out upon the front forecourt. This would be ideally suited for a professional practice or other such work-from-home scenarios.
The property provides very spacious interiors with a generous entrance hall, two spacious reception rooms and a former cloak room/office and stairs leading to the basement on the ground floor. Positioned on the landing return is the bathroom and water closet, while six bedrooms occupy the remaining first floor and dormer attic space.
Externally, there is a lawned forecourt to the front, which is contained within a rendered boundary wall with partial remaining wrought iron railings and wrought iron gate. The forecourt provides access to the main house, as well as separate front access to the basement. There is a yard and garden with sheds to the rear.
