The spectre of ghost estates haunts many villages and towns up and down the country. However, there are other unfinished legacies of the 'Tiger years' to be found in the built environment, including unfinished country houses and mansions.

Rosegreen House and Stud in Tipperary, situated close to Coolmore Stud and Ballydoyle is a prime example of the latter.

The uncompleted property is a 12,000sq ft, seven-bedroom house standing on 58ac.

The package includes a staff bungalow, an American-style barn and equestrian facilities. The property will be sold by public auction with a guide price of €500,000

The property is located at Rosegreen, a small rural village about 4 km from Cashel and 10km from Clonmel.

Constructed in the twilight of the boom years in 2007 and 2008, the 'period style' house is described by auctioneer Ed Donohoe as "essentially complete", but it needs finishing including some third fix electrical and plumbing work,

To describe the accommodation as spacious is something of an understatement.

The various reception rooms include a large entrance hall with an ornate corniced ceiling and mahogany panelled walls.

Other reception areas include a living room, drawing room and a family room along with a modern kitchen. All seven bedrooms are ensuite. The house also comes with a 6.65m x 4.12m swimming pool and a sauna.

Other facilities include an entertainment room, games room, a bar area, communications room and a treble door garage.

A courtyard located to the rear of the house was developed in the style associated with the great houses of old.

The stables are adjoined by a self-contained two-bedroom, bungalow. There's also an American-style barn accommodating a one-bedroom apartment and equestrian support facilities such as a tack room, a feed room and a canteen.

The property is situated on approximately 58ac of land dotted with semi-mature trees and extending from the road.

While a number of acres to the rear of the house are low lying and of a heavy nature, in the main the lands are of good quality and currently in grass.

A stud-rail fence encircles the entire holding, which is interspersed with semi-mature trees.

According to Ed Donohoe, apart from the internal finishing, the grounds will need some attention and tidying.

Nevertheless, the building is built to a high specification and with a guide price of €500,000 he believes the entire property represents great value.

The property will be sold at auction at the Cashel Palace Hotel, Cashel at 3pm on Wednesday, October 15.
