VIDEO: 28ac holding with residence, sheds and yard for auction

The property firm will offer the listing for sale by means of an online auction with LSL Auctions later this month.

Coastal holding in Wexford

Quinn Property will offer the listing for sale in the following lots:

  • 1: Residence & outbuildings on circa 1.1-acres;
  • 2: C. 11.5-acres;
  • 3: C. 15.5-acres;
  • 4: Combination of lot 1 & lot 2.

According to David Quinn, auctioneer, the property was originally part of the Ardamine Estate constructed in the mid-1800s.

It retains many original features, including the herringbone brickwork on the Estate Steward’s House.

The property also includes the old estate office to the right of the front door and the bellhouse of the estate with its original bell, which was converted in the early 1980s.

He said these features make this property “truly original in every way”.

Furthermore, the owner added an extension to the main house in the late 1970s. “Whilst the property needs some modernisation, it is presented in good condition,” Quinn added.

  • Entrance hall: 4.55m x 2.7m carpet;
  • Living room: 4.25m x 3.8m fireplace, bookshelves;
  • Dining room: 6.8m x 6.04m Stanley solid fuel cooker, hot press, carpet;
  • Kitchen: 6.1m x 4m fitted units, electric cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, lino flooring, back door;
First floor:
  • Five bedrooms;
  • Bathroom: 3.45m x 2.0m W.c., w.h.b., bath & shower
  • Hallway: Storage unit
Annex 1 & 2:

Adjoining the main residence is a brick cut stone building, which the estate office and bell-house.

The current owners converted this to self-catering units some years ago. However, these have been unoccupied for several years and, therefore, require “significant” investment and upgrading.

Quinn suggested that it may be possible for the new owner to incorporate this building to the main residence or perhaps, they could use this as a home office/studio.

Annex 1 has five rooms and annex 2 has four rooms, with fireplaces, units, and WCs.


There is a range of old stone out-offices in need of repair and a 3-bay shed with 2×3 bay lean-tos, all with concrete floors as well as some open concrete yards.

Furthermore, there is an enclosed cattle yard, along with a dungstead.


The lands, all currently in grass, are two divisions. According to Quinn, lands are presently in grass, of good quality and currently being farmed to a high standard.

“The lands are well fenced and have a natural water supply fronting onto the Aughboy River,” he added.

Lot 3: C.15.5-acres: This parcel has good frontage onto a local road and may have potential for a residential site, Quinn suggested.

Services include oil-fired central heating, mains water, a septic tank and a fuel shed.


The property enjoys a “splendid” location along the coast road between Courtown and Ballygarrett, 3km south of Courtown, 6km from Ballygarrett and 7 km south of Gorey.

“It is also within walking distance of Ardamine and Poulshone beaches. Gorey is one of north Wexford’s most noted towns.

It offers a choice of schools from primary, secondary, post – leaving and adult education, Educate Together and a Gaelscoil, along with a wealth of restaurants, shops, pubs, and award-winning hotels.

“There is a vast array of local leisure amenities such as endless sandy beaches, golf courses to include Courtown Golf Club & Ballymoney Golf Club, swimming and leisure centres.”

“Wexford is a 30-minute drive, Enniscorthy a 20-minute drive, while Dublin is a comfortable commute of one hour,” Quinn added.
