A former Co Longford school house is among a series of properties set to go under the hammer at an upcoming Leinster Property Auction in two weeks time.

St Barry's Old School House in Edgeworthstown is being offered at bids of over €245,000. In partnership with Sherry FitzGerald Davitt & Davitt, this represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a fully renovated and extended school house dating back to 1929, with spacious living accommodation, five double bedrooms and raised timber ceiling on the first floor leading to a balcony.

The present owners have put their hearts and souls into this home retaining some of the original features of the school including some floor tiles, the two side doors which were the boys and girls entrance. The property is set on a mature site of approximately half an acre with its original school outbuilding incorporated. Superbly located just 3km off the motorway, it makes for easy access for those commuting to and from Dublin.
