The “highly anticipated” sale of Derry View House, Croneyhorn, Carnew, Co Wicklow through a public auction marked a “positive start” to Quinn Property’s 2022.
That is according to the firm’s David Quinn, who put the “well-located” two-storied cottage on a circa 1.2-acre site under the hammer on February 15th, 2022.
Ahead of the auction, the renowned livestock and property auctioneer explained that the residence needs “total” refurbishment and upgrading.
Quinn reported that the listing attracted “a large volume of enquiries”, with almost ten registering to bid.
Ahead of the auction, he guided the property between €100,000 and €120,000.

Bidding opened at €75,000 and “swiftly rose” to €100,000. With four further bids, the property reached €120,000, and at that point, Quinn declared it ‘on the market’.
He said it looked as if the hammer might fall at €124,000 after he gave fair warning to the room.
However, a bidder ‘promptly’ made an additional offer of €126,000, which was the final bid of the day. His hammer fell at €126,000 for Derry View House.
Afterwards, David Quinn said the auction saw “competitive bidding and provided a strong result as the property requires significant works”.
