The Old School House, Shanballymore, Dunmore, Co. Galway.
Ref: C0021

SOLD

AN OLD CHARMING NATIONAL SCHOOL HOUSE DATING BACK TO 1922 IN NEED OF COMPLETE RENOVATION BUT PROVIDING POTENTIAL FOR A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING SUBJECT TO NECESSARY PLANNING CONSTRAINTS.

A derelict national school situated on approximately 0.33 Acres with circa 60 metres of road frontage onto a country road. The schoolhouse is approximately 112 square metres of stone construction under a slate roof. Internally the floor joists have collapsed and the roof is in need of repair. To the rear of the schoolhouse there is a small turf shed and also a small toilet block. The site is very overgrown and the stone walls surrounding the property are in need of general repair. To the south east of the school house, there is an area of land that is not enclosed but is included in the sale. This would be the ideal place for a private well and private gardens.

A summary of the accommodation with room aspects and approximate room measurements is as follows:

INNER HALL: (SW), 5.29 m x 1.42 m (174 x 4'8), with door and window to front. Doors leading to main and rear classroom.

MAIN SCHOOL ROOM: (SW, NE) 8.58 m x 6.22 m (28'2 x 20'5) there are large 2 meter high windows to both the front and rear, doorway to the rear classroom. Full height ceiling with wooden panelling.

REAR CLASSROOM: (NE) 4.33 m x 5.25 m (142 x 17'2) with open fireplace, full height ceiling.

The boundaries are clearly defined on the SW, NW and NE boundaries by traditional stone walls with a pedestrian access way and vehicular access way off a council maintained road to the front. To the rear of the property there is an old concrete building which used to be a turf shed and to the very rear of the site an old toilet block which is almost derelict now. To the south east of the property there is an area of land approximately 500 sq. meters which is not enclosed but is within the confines of the boundary.
