Midlands home and 108ac for €1.1million
Kilpatrick House on 108ac near Collinstown in Co Westmeath is a lovely manageable farm with a charming period house. The property is coming to auction with a guide price of €1.1m.
Located near Collinstown village about 13km from Mullingar the farm includes the residence, an adjoining two-bedroom apartment, a well-equipped farmyard, 100ac of grassland and 8ac of forestry.
The house, extending to 2,300sqft, is of an early 19th century vintage.
The front portion of the house has a spacious conservatory, a more recent addition that may or may not suit the purist in search of a period residence.
As conservatories go it is very sympathetic to the original. Other accommodation includes an entrance hall, two living rooms, a kitchen with fitted units along with a utility room and a guest WC. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
To the rear of the residence is the traditional stone courtyard with a series of stone built sheds.
The house is set close to the road with its own road frontage and is surrounded by lovely spaces with great potential for developing a garden.
According to Jennifer Walsh of selling agents Sherry FitzGerald Davitt and Davitt the house is in fine condition and while it might need some redecoration to suit the tastes of the new owner the building is structurally sound with many of its original features still intact. Adjoining the residence is an apartment with accommodation that includes a kitchen/living area with two bedrooms and a shower room. This was added in the relatively recent past and according to Ms Walsh it is ready to move into.
