Property Summary

Such a pleasure to bring the iconic Marian House for sale, this property is simply oozing with history and charm.

Marian House was built in 1884 and is sitting on an acre of land walled on three sides with a stream running along the fourth boundary. The approach to the house is via a long drive over which you have right of way. Your vista is of Cuskinny Marsh teeming with bird life and also distant views of the harbour. The orientation is South so enjoys the sun all day.

Special luxuries include an indoor swim-spa pool, Jacuzzi and indoor Barbecue area.  Manicured gardens on three levels with mature trees are just some of the outdoor pleasures at Marian House.

This is a spacious 2-storey, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom detached house, complete with connected 44m2 double garage, completely kitted out with work benches and built-in cupboards which of course could be converted into a home office or additional accommodation. Plans have been prepared for double-storeying the garage if required.

The beauty of this property is that you could run a business such as pottery or art studio, B&B etc. from here as you have plenty of scope and room. The house enjoys a long conservatory to the front ending in an octagonal sun room complete with multi-fuel DRU stove and currently used as a study.

Accommodation – double front doors of teak, entrance hall with original Victorian tiling, long sun room conservatory leading to the sunroom, the entrance leads to the hall which in turn leads to the 2 main bedrooms. Double French doors in each bedroom open to the conservatory so as to enjoy the vista and sunshine, you also have 2 bathrooms (one on-suite) and a dressing room. Off the hall via a passage is another bedroom and bathroom, living room (currently used a cinema room) with kitchenette which in turn leads to the big 80m2 indoor entertainment/recreational room – indoor pool, jacuzzi, log stove and built-in barbecue. Upstairs you have an amazing reception room with a beautiful fireplace and wooden beams to showcase the room and of course the beautiful view, off the sitting/dining room is the kitchen with cherry wood cupboards.

The house was completely and sensitively renovated in 1996 and new double glazed tilt-n-turn windows have just been installed; the poolroom was added in 2005/2006. The house is not listed so one has the choice to make changes if you wish.

First impressions – it’s a big but useable house, ideal family home, great to run your business whilst living there, bright, plenty of garden and patio space and simply peaceful and away from it all. It’s hidden away so a viewing is a must.
