A former schoolhouse located in Castledermot has been put on the market, with potential buyers being enticed into the property by the fact that it also houses a bed & breakfast.
Doyle's Schoolhouse is a residence that is being sold in three lots; the first lot is the schoolhouse which features reception room, sitting room, lounge, dining room, kitchen, toilets, function room, 4 bedrooms upstairs all ensuite.
The second lot is a residence that features a hall, kitchen, sitting room, reception area, six bedrooms (four ensuite) and bathroom. There is also a self contained apartment with a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The third lot is the entire property together as one.
There is 180 acres of road frontage on front of the restaurant and adjoining house that stands on a mature site, which has off street parking, private garden, suitable for further development subject to planning permission. Under the Kildare development 2017/2023 the area is zoned for town centre activities which provides for a wide range of commercial and residential development subject to planning.
This charming schoolhouse restaurant first opened its doors in the 1920s as a local government vocational second level school, purchased by the present owners and converted to restaurant with adjoining accommodation in the early 1970s and it has traded very successfully as a restaurant until recently and now specialises in accommodation.
The sale presents an ideal opportunity to recreate a stylish restaurant with adjoining accommodation and ample scope for further development if desired.
No price for the property has been quoted, but it is negotiable.
The contents of both properties will be auctioned on the premises on the weekend of Saturday September 30 by Ashgrove Auctions.
