fine victorian home has plenty of character to offer
Ballanagh House, on almost 10ac, is a fine Victorian-era home near Avoca, Co Wicklow. Originally part of the Ballyarthur Estate, it is now for sale by auction, with a guide price of €400,000. Located 5km from Avoca and 8km from Arklow, the property is close to the M11 and 74km from Dublin. Harriet Grant of Savills says the residence is in need of renovation, but comes with oodles of character. The accommodation is laid out over two floors and includes four reception rooms, a kitchen and one bedroom at ground floor level and two further rooms, which were once used as staff accommodation. At first floor level, there are a further five bedrooms and the main bathroom. An old world cut-stone courtyard gives plenty of scope for good stabling or many other possible uses. Ballanagh House sits on almost 10ac of ground, including two fields at either side of the avenue. The property also comes with mature, well maintained gardens that surround the house on three sides. Ballanagh House will be sold at auction at Buswells Hotel, Molesworth St, at 3pm on Thursday, June 5.
