Situated in south Co Wexford along the R738 Taghmon to Kilmore road, the farm is 3km from Taghmon, 2km off the R733 Duncannon line and less than half an hour drive from New Ross, Enniscorthy and Wexford.

The residence and farmyard are approached via a tree-lined avenue and are set 400m back from the public road. Originally built over 100 years ago, the two-storey traditional farmhouse was extended and remodelled in the 1990s. According to auctioneer David Quinn of Quinn Properties, it is in excellent condition throughout and the place is ideal for equestrian or other enterprises.

The accommodation in the house includes an entrance hall, an inner entrance hall a dining room, sitting room, a fully fitted kitchen, a utility and a downstairs WC. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have ensuite facilities and all have walk in wardrobes. Other features include marble fireplaces and ornate plasterwork.

The avenue leading to the house has mature lawns either side while to the rear of the property is a sheltered lawn and a mature garden area.

To the front of the residence is a large concrete yard surrounded by buildings in a courtyard style that include a stable block with nine stables, a sand arena and traditional stone out-offices.

Among other outbuildings is a fuel shed, a garage with a sliding door, a large 'A' framed shed with sliding door, a hayshed, a three column back-to-back shed and a range of various traditional out-buildings. Water to the house and the lands is provided by two private wells.

The farm is described by David Quinn as a fine, south facing holding with good frontage on to the public road. Currently in grass the land is good quality ground, well fenced and watered.

The land is also suitable for tillage and has been tilled in the last number of years, indeed Mr Quinn says it is suitable for most agricultural enterprises, "This is a perfect opportunity to acquire a large holding with equine facilities that is also suited to most agricultural pursuits," he said.
