Kilbrennal House, a residential stud farm extending to 85ac in south Tipperary, is sure to bring out the equestrian buyers when it comes to auction next month. The fully equipped stud farm comes to market with a guide of €1m.

Situated at Ballynonty, the property is located 3km from Killenaule, 10km from Cashel and 20km from Clonmel in the heart of south Tipperary stud country.

The house and lands have been in the same family for three generations and are now being sold by the current owner, who is retiring from farming.

According to Michael Boyd of selling agents REA Boyd's, the 19th-century house is typically Georgian in style with a fine-glazed porch and twin glazed doors with a fanlight to the hall.

The reception rooms are on either side of the hall, with the kitchen and lounge adjacent, while upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

An adjoining range of outbuildings was converted in the 1990s to accommodate a large lounge, a stud office, dining room and a further kitchen with utility, while two bedrooms and a bathroom were developed on the first floor.

The residence is set in a lovely garden of lawns and mature trees, while immediately to the rear is the main stable yard with its own road access.

The extensive and well equipped stable yard includes 26 loose boxes, a tack room, a five-span hay barn with lean-to, a range of open stabling, a wash bay, a block-built horse walker, a lunging ring and three furlong gallops.

Set in the apex of a triangle between two roads, the house and yards are secured by a strong perimeter wall.

A smaller farmyard for stock such as pigs and calves with facilities for fodder storage is situated midway along the farm and has direct access to the road.

Michael Boyd describes the lands as good Tipperary grassland in good heart. The holding is divided into nine principal divisions fenced with traditional hedgerow and watered by mains and well water.

Straddling a by-road, the farm has substantial road frontage facilitating the sale of the property in lots or as an entire. The house, yards and 55ac will form one lot, while at the opposite side of the road a 30ac parcel will make up the second lot.

According to Mr Boyd this is a walk-in farm: "The new owner will not need to spend a penny, the house is perfectly habitable, the yards and equestrian facilities have everything and the land is in good heart."

REA Boyd's are handling the sale of Kilbrennal House along with joint agents Cillin Hill Auctioneers.

The property will be sold at auction at the Cashel Palace Hotel at 3pm on Thursday, December 12.
