Holy, time waits for no local news website in this town…
No sooner had we posted pics of Mrs Robinson’s great big busty extension out front than their spanking new deck has seemingly walked the plank.
We swung by this afternoon to find out exactly why the new outdoor seating area was just about finished on Tuesday and was all gone by Wednesday, but, since the surly-looking trio there this afternoon seemed deep in discussion about that very fact, we thought it best to leave them argue it out in peace.
Within an hour of our Wednesday post about new shopsand old homes hitting the town, handsome young photographer David Cavanagh was in touch with some images of what Waverly House should look like when all the concrete has set and all the dust has settled.
This former home will have retail outlets downstairs and offices upstairs, with a two-storey glass shopfront to the back. The entrance and the facade will remain intact and refurbished, whilst the gable wall and the roof will be replaced as originally built, in keeping with the Victorian conservation planning.
And, since we’re dealing with the main street, we should have mentioned yesterday that Mrs Robinson’s next-door neighbour, Zoe House, is looking for planning permission for three second-floor apartments, complete with balconies, a courtyard garden at second floor level, the use of three car parking spaces in the basement for residential purposes along with the use of approved bin stores and 16 bicycle spaces.
Which sounds nice.
On a much more thrilling note, a little cuckoo told us this morning about the bould-verging-on-bold Johnny Ronan plans for Style Bawn House, now that Maguire & Patterson finally managed to have their wicked way last December.
Having spent the last few years sniffing around Charlesland and Enniskerry, our boy Ronan is determined to open a hotel around here somewhere. And that somewhere might just be Style Bawn House, according to our insider source.
Not only are there plans being drawn up for a hotel on the Delgany property, but there will also be retail units and townhouses out the back – the latter being an early plan [right] of Ronan’s for the site.
We can think of one local family who will be more than delighted with this news. Not sure about Delgany’s longer-term residents though.
