The Manse or old rectory at Ballyjamesduff is a fine three-storey, five bedroom Georgian residence with separate apartments and tennis court.
Located a mile from the Cavan town made famous by the Percy French ballad 'Come Back Paddy Reilly', the building has been extended and fully restored with original features intact.
The Manse sits amidst expansive lawns and lovely mature trees and is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €485,000.
The sale is being handled by DNG O'Dwyer, Virginia, Co Cavan.
The residence was constructed in 1871 by Lord Farnham as a rectory to service part of the vast Farnham Estate.
It is a typical 19th century building in form and design, with elegant reception rooms to the front and fine, spacious bedrooms upstairs.
The property has undergone extensive refurbishment, including re-wiring, re-plumbing and re-lining of the chimneys, along with an architecturally-sympathetic extension to the rear.
