Tinnahinch is a small residential estate with a unique fishery on 35ac adjacent to Powerscourt Gardens in Co Wicklow.
This charming property was once part of the homestead of the famous 18th century parliamentarian, Henry Grattan. In fact Tinnahinch as it stands today represents the garden house, walled garden and riverbank meadows on the original Grattan estate.
It includes a period lodge, guest cottage and large log chalet-style lodge, fishing lakes, a renowned stretch of river fishing, and pastureland. It is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €3.9m.
Located 1.4km from Enniskerry, 5.3km from Kilmacanogue and the N11 and 6.1km from Bray, the property is set in some lovely countryside.
Situated on the banks of the River Dargle, the accommodation extends to some 5,321sqft in total and includes a garden lodge, guest cottage, and chalet along with a workshop and some old estate out offices.
The estate combines riverside meadowland with manicured pleasure gardens and the walled estate garden that includes many specimen trees, shrubs, and flowering plants.
A 4ac springfed lake is stocked with rainbow trout where some reach up to 16lbs in weight.
The River Dargle runs through the estate and is freshly fed from the Glencree River and the Powerscourt Waterfall, the highest waterfall in these islands.
