Former Church property in small town has commercial potential

THE town where the first St Leger race took place is choc a bloc with period properties.

Not only does Doneraile have a fine amenity park, it's in a central location in North Cork and is undergoing a rejuvenation particularly in its properties.

Doneraile Court, of course is the most obvious, the estate of the St Legers is still undergoing renovation, but a property that's ready to go has now made an appearance on the local market.

A former monastery and rest home. The Priests House is now on the market with Peer Cave of Hamilton Osborne King for offers in the region of €450,000.

In very good condition and with all the fundamentals attended to, this large property would be ideal as a B&B, hostel, holistic centre, or even offices, says the agent. Close to the centre of town and a short drive to the main N8, the property offers a number of possibilities.

It has nine bedrooms in total and a range of reception rooms with a large, modern kitchen with an Aga.

The house stands on three-quarters of an acre which includes a walled-in garden and orchard.

It also comes with plenty of parking and has oil heating
