House on banks of Slaney up for grabs

Ballyrankin House on the banks of the River Slaney near Bunclody, Co Wexford is set on 21ac of good arable land.

Believed to date from the early 17th century -- although the Tudor-style embellishments were added later -- the house and its lands are for sale by private treaty and come with a guide price of €850,000.

Located 6km from Bunclody and 26km from Tullow, the property comprises the main house, an orchard, a stable yard and some 21ac with frontage onto the River Slaney.

The residence extends to 5,166 sq ft and is in need of considerable restoration.

The accommodation includes eight bedrooms, four reception rooms and a sunroom.

Adjacent to the main house is an array of traditional stone-cut outhouses and a courtyard complete with bell-tower.

The 21ac of land are described by David Ashmore, of selling agents Sherry FitzGerald, as the best of ground that would be suitable for tillage or grassland.

There is an option to purchase an additional 4.5ac and 830m of fishing rights.
