Sold - Residential
Exquisite palatial Georgian detached residence in town centre location. This neo-classical Georgian country “estate” was built C. 1835. The property is currently untouched from its inception in that it is a large 3 bay two storey over basement constructed of cut stone & limestone materials. The property retains most if not all of its original grandeur and stands proudly on its elevated private site. The Moorings estate was originally constructed in C. 1835 and was the only country Georgian Estate north of Athlone with the town boundary. The first owner was a man by the name James Caulfield- born in 1795.The property was given a makeover/renovation in the 1880’s and passed lands to the Broderick family. Most well-known author and literary John Broderick grew up in the moorings prior to going onto literary success.
Today, separated into self-containing units, the property still remains much of its natural beauty with its large open hallway, 2 drawing rooms, ornate coving, French windows panelling, and rear courtyard. One would need to view to fully appreciate what this beautiful home has to offer.
