160 Acre Farm and Georgian House for sale in Westmeath


Cornaher Farm is a superb holding consisting of a picturesque Georgian House on c.160 acres of rolling lands which have been farmed to the highest standards over the past number of years.
Cornaher House is a listed two storey over basement property which is situated on an elevated site overlooking the surrounding country side. Approached by a long private driveway (600m long) the house and yard are located in the middle of the farm in a most private setting.
Built circa 1815 the residence which is in need of modernisation has very attractive Georgian features. This house was the home of a Rev. John Vignoles (a former Major in the British Army), who died at Cornaher in 1819. In 1837 it was in the ownership of Rev. Chas. Vignoles, who was rector of the nearby Newtown Church of Ireland church to the northwest. It has not been un-inhabited for the past number of years however it retains many beautiful features such as the three bay bows of either side of the main entrance, limestone steps and a superb partly hidden parapet wall to the front. The property boasts sash double glazed windows, fanlights and superb Georgian style proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms. Cornaher would make a superb home or guest house.
To the rear of the property is an attractive cobblestone yard with stable, coach house ideal for alternative uses.
The farm extends to approx. 160 acres and is in nine divisions with good quality modern cattle holding facilities which can accommodate up to 400 cattle, together with machinery sheds, silage pit and dry sheds.
The subject property has the added benefit of easy access to the M6 and is within 2 kms of the Village of Tyrrellspass.

The property was withdrawn from auction in May and is now seeking approx. €1.6million. Further details www.coonan.com
