The holding is located at Downshill, Delgany, Co Wicklow about 1km from the M11 motorway, 6km from Greystones, 12km from Bray, 19km from Wicklow and 32km from Dublin city centre.

Built in recent years, the house is a bright spacious residence with accommodation that includes an entrance hall, sitting room, living room and a guest bathroom with shower, WC and washbasin.

The reception rooms are well finished with some lovely features that include marble fireplaces, timber floors and bay windows giving fine views over the surrounding countryside.

Upstairs is a spacious landing leading to accommodation that includes an ensuite master bedroom, four other bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Access to the holding is by an avenue that passes through the better portion of just over 100ac of land surrounding the house. A parcel of 41.5ac of the best of the ground is in tillage while 58.8ac is in forestry and rough pasture.

Aideen Gilsenan of selling agents Ganly Walters says the land is of excellent quality suitable for all agricultural purposes, with good natural boundaries.

The forestry was planted between 1995 and 2000 and extends to 58.8ac in Sitka Spruce. While not currently commanding any premiums, the thinnings and timber should bring in a handsome penny in time.

At present there is a telecommunications mast on the land, the lease on which expires at the end of September. A new owner has the option of entering into a new lease. There are also ESB pylons and a gas line running through the farm.

Sunnybank comes to auction on Tuesday, October 6 at the offices of Ganly Walters, Percy Place, Dublin 4
