Brian Gleeson Property are pleased to bring to market Monamean Old Schoolhouse at Kiely’s Cross, Grange, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.
Monamean Schoolhouse was built in 1911 and operated as a school until the late sixties. The original school was a one storey building housing two classrooms with sliding partitions between them and an entrance come cloakroom for the teachers and pupils at the front. You can still see the track for the sliding partition in the hall floor. Each classroom had two long windows and a fireplace, although the fireplace on the east side has been blocked up for some years. The original pitch pine floors are still in the two classroom areas. The entrance to the school was through the front of the building facing the road. Originally there were two doors on the east and west side where there are now two windows. The original door from the entrance into one of the classrooms is still there while the other door into the other classroom has been blocked up. You can see this in the lounge as an alcove. The derelict building at the back of the property housed the toilets. The original stone walls surround the property on two sides are in reasonable repair except for a few parts.
Over the last twenty years the current owners carried out a lot of work which included re-rendering the outside of the house, installing new guttering, new roof and windows, rewiring, plumbing, installing oil-fired heating, new fireplace, new kitchen, two new bathrooms with electric/power showers and a new front door.
This property is located only a 10-minute drive from the beautiful seaside village of Ardmore and less than 15-minute drive from the bustling town of Dungarvan benefiting from all the amenities that Ardmore and Dungarvan have to offer.
For the person with vision and imagination this property may be the one for you!
