Georgian stud farm on 40 acres
Knockrath Stud at Ballinlough, Kells, Co Meath, is set on 40ac and centred around a handsome Georgian House built in 1835.
The classic two-storey over semi-basement house has remained unchanged for almost two centuries and is maintained with all of the original features intact including fireplaces, panel doors, moulded architraves and skirtings.
The property, which is coming to auction with a guide price of €600,000, is located 12km from Kells and 8km from Oldcastle.
Knockrath is a long-established and well-known stud that stands two stallions. It is well respected in equine circles and has an excellent record for producing and preparing sport horses.
The residence is in a very attractive setting, with rising ground to the rear providing shelter from the north winds. This is enclosed by some very fine specimen trees, while the lawns have been very well kept.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, two reception rooms, a study, morning room and dining room on the ground floor.
On the first floor are found four bedrooms – one of which is en suite – and a bathroom.
