THIS elegant, period, three-storey over basement townhouse underwent a sensitive and sympathetic refurbishment, which was carried out by the existing owners in 2008.
The result is a revelation with seamless melding of the old and new, which has brought this impressive family home right up to date. The refurbishment was carried out to an extremely high standard with exquisite attention to detail and the property is beautifully decorated throughout with a neutral yet elegant palette.
Dating from c. 1890, 22 Otteran Place has beautifully proportioned accommodation and retains many of its original period features, such as cornicing, marble fireplaces, doors, 11′ ceilings etc.
The property occupies a superb location overlooking the People’s Park with a host of primary and secondary schools on its doorstep and is within a short walk of the Viking Triangle and Waterford city centre.
Approached by a flight of limestone steps, the bright and airy entrance hall is flooded with natural light, with stairs to the first-floor return and lower ground floor.
Off the entrance hall is the living room, with stained hardwood flooring and cantilevered bay window, an original marble open fireplace and double-glazed doors leading to the kitchen.
The stylish kitchen has stained hardwood flooring and an original marble open fireplace. The bespoke hand-crafted oak units are finished in white with a stained hardwood worktop, with Belfast sink and dual electric / gas Rangemaster range. The large island / breakfast counter has a marble worktop. Off the kitchen is the dining room with stained hardwood flooring and a door to the garden.
The lower ground floor lends itself to a home office / business with separate access to the front of the property and two good size offices, along with a WC and well-appointed utility room.
On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom, complete with original open fireplace. There is also a dressing room with built in wardrobes, and a large and luxurious ensuite bathroom with marble tiling, double vanity unit, freestanding roll top bath and double power shower.
On the second floor are a further three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a tiled bathroom with Velux roof light, free standing roll top bath, power shower, wash basin and WC.
