This Georgian gem in Waterford costs just under a million
An elegant property in the heart of the Viking town of Waterford is offered for sale. Sherry FitzGerald’s John Rohan estimates €995,000 for the Port of Waterford Building.
Built in 1795 to a design by Waterford’s famous Georgian architect John Roberts, it retains its historic form and character. Original features include the granite base, door frame, corner ashlars and cut granite cornices.
A Palladian style entrance hall is flanked by double fluted Doric columns. An impressive cantilevered spiral staircase is one of the finest in the country, with brass balustrades and rich stucco. A high stairwell is surmounted by an oval dome and lit by a skylight.
Neoclassical stuccos by Patrick Osborne add to the decoration, while the first floor features a beautiful set of reception rooms with original fireplaces.
This terraced 4 storey, 4 storey home is 975m2 and has a large courtyard with rear access.
Its basement was lovingly renovated in 2007, with original style arches and an open configuration, and was occupied by the La Boheme restaurant for several years.
The entire building is vacant except for the 190m2 ground floor which is occupied by Waterford Chamber on two leases. One is a 99 year lease from December 1954 at an annual interest of IR£1, the other lease has a current annual rent of €16,840 plus VAT.
It is located at No. 2 Georges Street at the junction of Gladstone Street and O’Connell Street and adjacent to The Quays in an established commercial area.
