Elegant life awaits on estate in Carlow

The relics of old decency surround you in Broomville House and its 25ac of paddocks and mature woodland. This is a lovely property, one that would have made multiples of its guide price just a couple of years ago.

The fine stone residence boasts three elegant reception rooms, eight bedrooms, a kitchen and several utility rooms.

Like all large houses of its vintage, it has its own walled garden and a courtyard of stone outbuildings and agricultural sheds.

Potential

While the house needs some work, it possesses great potential and is ideal for the owner with an eye on the country house end of the tourism market.

Broomville is located in one of the most scenic areas of the southeast, with fantastic views of Mount Leinster and south Carlow and is within walking distance from the river Slaney. Carlow town is 14 miles away, while Tullow is only four miles.

The house is set on about 25ac of good land set in paddocks and gardens with six acres in mature forestry.

Selling agent Matthew Corry, of Tullow-based Dawson Real Estate Alliance, says there is also an option to buy with the property.


Broomville House and the 25 acres is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €1.25-1.5m.
