Ashmount House at Cloneygowan, Co Offaly is among a number of substantial residential farms to come on the market this summer.
The 171ac farm with a period house and yard can be bought in lots or as an entire and comes to auction with a guide price of €2m.
The property is located near Cloneygowan village about 19km from Tullamore and 6km from Portarlington with access to the M7 and M6.
The holding includes the house and yard, while the land is comprised of tillage, grazing, forestry and Christmas trees.
Built around 1850 the residence is a three-bay, two-storey construction that has had various additions over the years and now covers 2,583sqft. It is reached by a tarmacadam drive and set in mature gardens with some lovely stands of trees.
The house is in sound structural condition and was completely re-plumbed and rewired in the last eleven years. It is heated with oil-fired central heating and while the sliding timber sash windows were fully restored four years ago other windows are in a mix of timber and PVC.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, a drawing room, dining room, a kitchen with a Stanley range and built-in presses, while other downstairs accommodation includes a guest WC, a utility and a family bathroom. There is also a space that could be used as a study or a bedroom.
Upstairs, on the return is a bathroom while the first floor is home to five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house maintains many of the original Georgian features such as ornate plasterwork and timber floors.
