Property: 'Brookville' back on the market
Brookville House on 180ac at Carbury, Co Kildare was withdrawn from auction last week after being bid to €1.52m. The property was guided pre auction at €1.8m.
Located about 3km from Edenderry on the Broadford, Clogherinka Road the original house was built in the 1730s and the current owner bought the property in 2009.
He spent €300,000 renovating the dwelling and €200,000 reclaiming the lands and the outbuildings.
The house is in excellent condition throughout and ready to move into. The place has been thoroughly renovated and tastefully extended to include a modern kitchen.
To the rear of the house is a typical Georgian courtyard in perfect condition, with the stonework cleaned and pointed and all the sheds reroofed,
A large, modern, six-bay, A-roofed shed located behind the courtyard is currently used as a workshop and for machinery storage but is also fit for many other purposes. Beside it is a traditional, long hayshed with a slate roof.
The land is in great condition and completely accessible thanks to a hardcore, central driveway. It has been entirely drained fenced and reseeded. The land is mainly in grass with about 20ac in barley. The fencing is top class and there is a fine selection of trees dotted throughout the farm.
