See the Georgian residence on 28 acres in Meath set to make over €1.6m
Phepotstown House near Kilcock in Co Meath was once the home of jockey, Willie Robinson, a three times winner of the Hennessy Gold Cup along with the Grand National and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
He was also the pilot on Mill House which came out second best to Arkle and Pat Taaffe in the 1964 and '65 Cheltenham Gold Cup showdowns. Robinson had guided Mill House to National Hunt's blue riband in 1963 and completed a rare double by also winning that year's Hennessy Gold Cup.
The following year he steered Team Spirit to victory in the Aintree Grand National.
His one-time base and adjoining equestrian facilities are for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €1.6m.
It was bought by its current owners, Liam and Siobhan Treacy in 1995 and now, with the family grown up, they are downsizing and moving on. The house was completely renovated with a new wing added in 2000.
Located between the M3 and M4 the property is 6km from Kilcock, 10km from Summerhill and 13km from Dunshaughlin. The main house is approached by a beautiful, tree-lined avenue that runs through stud-railed paddocks while a second avenue to the rear gives access to the office and yard.
The entrance hall is typical of late 18th century/early 19th century design. With its limestone-tiled floor and an arch leading to a winding staircase at the rear wall, it is an elegant introduction to the residence.
The reception rooms include a dining room with a timber floor, a decorative wooden fireplace with marble inset and a corniced ceiling with a large centre rose.
