€500k guide price for mansion on 58ac
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.
