Riverside House, Oldtown, Letterkenny, F92EA36

Superbly located 9 bedroom property with great potential

Situated just over the stone bridge in the Oldtown, Riverside House is a very substantial semi-detached property formerly used for bed & breakfast and eminently suitable for use as same again. The property is a little old fashioned and at this stage would benefit from some redecoration and modernising. Given its very central location and large gardens of c.0.25 acre some commercial potential may exist with the property and we anticipate significant interest so your early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
