Described in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage No 9 Blarney Street is noted as a Terraced three-bay three-storey house, built c. 1840, with vacant former public house to ground floor. Pitched slate roof with red brick chimney stacks. Rendered walls. Replacement aluminium windows to upper floors. Timber shopfront, c. 1890, comprising of fixed windows and pair of panelled doors, flanked by pilasters having fascia and consoles above. It goes on to give the following appraisal. The scale and form of this house make a notable and positive contribution to the streetscape. The late nineteenth-century timber shopfront is a particularly notable feature of the building. Clearly executed by skilled craftsmen, simple shopfronts such as this one are becoming increasingly rare in the urban landscape and are often replaced by historical pastiche. This property, currently in use as a family home offers 1,737 sq. ft. (161.39sq. mt.) of space spread over three levels. The overall accommodation at ground floor level extends to the entrance hall, and kitchen/dining/living room together with a separate shop unit of approx. 400sq. ft. The first floor is given over to a beautiful lounge as well as two bedrooms (one of which has an annex to the rear) and a family bathroom. The second floor has three additional bedrooms with a store room for easy access. There is access from the top floor landing to a spacious attic overhead. The floor to ceiling height in each of the floors gives a scale to the building overall. With 9 foot 2 at entry level to 9 foot at first floor and still an impressive 7 foot 8 at the top floor. This property boasts many of its original features from window and door architrave and detailing to the original floor boards and fireplaces. While in need of some modernisation the property presents as an opportunity to purchasers who are looking for that extra space in which to create a home office away from but adjacent at the same time. The shop area gives tremendous opportunities. Viewing is highly recommended to see all that this property has to offer.
