Former rectory in south Tipperary on offer for €525,000
Mick Kinane is considered one of the finest jockeys of his generation. The diminutive Tipp man rode a string of top flight winners across the globe, but will be forever associated with that amazing champion, See The Stars. The John Oxx-trained stallion won six Grade One races in 2009, including the English 2000 Guineas, the Epsom Derby and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
A house long associated with the great jockey's uncle, Danny Kinane, has now come on the market in south Tipperary.
Glebe House at Kilvemnon, Mullinahone was Danny Kinane's home at one point and the base for his horse training and breeding operations.
The residence is a beautiful period home which was originally built in 1793 as a Church of Ireland rectory for the Vicar of Kilvemnon.
Pat O'Hagan of Savills says the house was first inhabited by Rev William Ryan, who so incensed locals while collecting tithes or church taxes that he provoked a riot and had to leave Kilvemnon to live in Cashel.
Glebe House is a fine three-storey over-basement residence set in 11.4ac of grounds.
The residence has seven bedrooms and two good-sized reception rooms that are described by the estate agents as "bright and spacious".
The house has undergone a full modernisation and refurbishment programme over the past few years. This has involved work on rewiring, plumbing and the installation of a fitted kitchen and new bathrooms. Underfloor heating has also been installed in the basement area.
