The customer in search of a property with character and possibilities would be well advised to take a look at Teeling's Mill with its miller's house and outbuildings set on 52ac near Dunshaughlin, Co Meath.
The property will be sold in lots or as an entire by selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Sherry, Dunshaughlin.
A guide price of €700,000 for the entire is being quoted in advance of the auction, which is to be held on June 30.
Located at Clowanstown, Drumree, 2.5km from Dunshaughlin and the M3 motorway, the property is adjacent to Killeen Castle golf club.
Lot one includes the miller's house, the old stonebuilt mill and outbuildings that include a three-bay haybarn and lean-to.
The mill was built in the 1870s and is almost entirely derelict. The three-storey building extends to around 6,000ft2.
The house is a three-bedroomed residence with two reception rooms and a bathroom. It is in need of extensive refurbishment. According to auctioneer Padraig Sherry, the mill and residence are listed buildings but he is confident the heritage authorities will be more than happy to engage with new owners who may wish to refurbish the buildings.
The lot is set on 10ac of top-quality land laid out in one division of old pasture in a beautiful parkland setting and comes with 500m of road frontage.
