This farm was bought with a Cromwellian grant, but now comes with over 200 acres
A residential farm outside Edenderry and with an address at Carbury, Co Kildare is back on the market with increased acreage.
Originally for sale with 180ac the place is now on the private treaty market with 210ac and is guided by Padraic Murtagh of James L Murtagh auctioneers at in excess of €2m.
Brookville House is just over 3km from Edenderry on the Broadford, Clogherinka Road and about 16km from the M4 at Enfield.
Located beside Highfield and Edenderry Golf Courses the place is set in beautiful countryside.
The 18th century house has been fully restored and the land is in great order. The outhouses are a combination of the classic Georgian courtyard layout and a substantial modern farm building. The property is approached by a curved avenue and the house stands in the middle of parkland, a solid two storey Georgian residence with a sympathetic extension to one side.
The current owner bought the property in 2009 and spent €300,000 renovating the house and €200,000 on reclaiming the lands and the outbuildings. The place originally owned by the Mathers family who got it as part of a Cromwellian grant
The house is in excellent condition throughout. The extension contains a modern kitchen, with plenty of space and light. Inside the Georgian door with its characteristic fanlight are two reception rooms at either side of an elegant hall with a broad staircase. The plasterwork and cornicing mirror the original Georgian décor, while the doors and fireplaces are original to the house. The sash windows are maintained in the Georgian style but completely new. Behind the reception rooms is found an office, the scullery/cloakroom, an ensuite bedroom and a utility.
