Famed Wexford breeding ground on market for €325,000
At the height of summer last year I walked an 82ac farm at Ballydaniel near Camolin in Co Wexford.
The place was subsequently sold at auction making €1.36m or €16,585/ac.
The house and extensive yards on 10ac were retained by the owner and these are now to be sold by public auction with a guide of €325,000.
Located about 1km from Camolin, Ballydaniel House and farm was once home to the famous 200 strong Ballydaniel Limousin herd, which was sold in recent years.
The house is an ivy covered, period residence that dates back to 1840 and to which an extension was added in 1960.
Reached by a short avenue and set among fine stands of mature trees the place oozes character. It is surrounded by a range of lovely old outbuildings and gardens.
The accommodation includes three reception rooms, all with fireplaces, a kitchen complete with a range-master gas cooker and, in an unusual feature, the main bedroom leads to a balcony.
Other downstairs accommodation includes a WC, a pantry and a utility. Upstairs there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom.
