A historic gem primed for modern living
Guide Price: £239,000
Georgian style developments are a common sight in our suburbs.
As well as their attractiveness, they are designed for modern and easy-keep family living. But for their many merits, few can offer the character Rokeby House in Armagh enjoys by the bucketload.
This prominent listed, three-storey Georgian townhouse occupies a corner site overlooking The Mall in the heart of the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland.
Rokeby House is an iconic property and instantly recognisable to anyone who regularly visits this historically important and of course charming city.
However on an equally practical note, it offers the perfect home for someone who desires a property that ticks all the right boxes and also provides a “ready to go” commercial/office space in a much coveted area.
This unique and stunning property has been sympathetically restored by its current owners, combining the building’s classic high ceilings, large windows and plaster cornicing with all the “mod cons” to provide an unexpected, sumptuous and contemporary interior.
Homeowners here can enjoy an elegant marble hallway, bespoke kitchen, fully tiled bathrooms with underfloor heating, modern suites and spacious rooms throughout that lend themselves to a multitude of uses.
However the real hidden gem of this property is that it boasts a large roof terrace - a daily sun trap ideal for screen breaks and outdoor entertaining with exquisite Mall and Cathedral views.
In 2019, a new roofing and insulation system was fitted to the adjoining commercial/office area with the entire building undergoing external repainting.
It is of course important to note that the adjoining commercial space also benefits from planning permission to be converted to a domestic garage.
The property further enjoys a zoned alarm/fire system, high speed internet and is networked with multiple electrical and TV points in all rooms.
Dual electrical systems have meanwhile been installed in all areas with a combination of eco Dimplex Quantum heating and a multi-fuel stove installed. Insulation has also been upgraded between floors and roof areas to maximise heat retention.
You are of course within walking distance of the city’s many, many attractions including of course shops, cafes, restaurants and perhaps most notably the pretty Mall - perfect for clocking up your 10,000 steps.
Surrounded by history and heritage, character and charm awaits at every twist and turn. On an even more practical note still, homeowners here can enjoy easy access to excellent transport links and of course some of Northern Ireland’s finest schools at both primary and secondary level.
Rokeby is truly a unique find, as it enjoys the kind of character that many emulate but never achieve.
Parallel to that is a property perfectly placed for modern lifestyles simply waiting for a lucky couple or family to come and make it their home.
