Auctioneer Aidan Heffernan of Sherry Fitzgerald Royal is confident of an early and successful closure of post-auction negotiations.
The house is a substantial 4,630sqft modern house built to a traditional design and modelled on Kilpeacon House in Limerick, a building designed by architect Richard Morrisson.
The house and its 85ac comes with a yard with four loose boxes, a cottage in need of renovation and a large garage.
Clonymeath, which was developed by a local dairy farmer and his solicitor wife in 1995, comprises three reception rooms, a study, kitchen and downstairs toilet.
The basement is home to a wine cellar, while on the first floor the accommodation includes five large bedrooms, one ensuite and a family bathroom. There is also a separate guest apartment with a living room/kitchen area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The land is laid out in a number of fields in permanent pasture, sheltered by mature trees and watered by the Moynalvey river.
The property was offered in lots initially when Aidan Heffernan opened proceedings in the auction room.
