The 345ac Drummin Estate, in Carbury, Co. Kildare, came under the hammer on Thursday, June 29th, 2023, in a public auction at Johnstown Hotel, in a sale handled by Jordan Auctioneers & Sherry Fitzgerald Country.

The joint selling agents placed an asking price of just over €3 million on the property, as reported by in this news article.

Ahead of the auction, a spokesperson said:

“This is in need of restoration, giving the new owners an opportunity to put their own stamp on the property”.

The property boasts a Georgian house containing four bedrooms and three reception rooms, a caretaker’s lodge, land and extensive road frontage and came for sale in a number of lots.

The Drummin House avenue is lined with mature trees, creating an immediate atmospheric introduction to the estate. Down the avenue to the gravel forecourt, the house immediately impresses.

Along with the main house, there is also a caretaker’s lodge on the estate, which is located by the farmyard and requires immediate restoration.

Accommodation in the lodge includes a living room, kitchen/dining room and two bedrooms.
