One of Savills’ newest portfolios contains a historic 19th-century Nantenan Estate, a walled garden and 208-acres of land – a blend of pasture, silage ground and woodland.
The property firm is seeking €1.6m for the residential and agricultural estate in Askeaton, Co Limerick.
The two-storey property occupies a private, south-easterly facing position.
Internally, the “light-filled” accommodation is of “generous and elegant” proportions spanning approximately 7,363 square feet.
- 7 bedrooms;
- Dining room;
- Reception hall;
- Chapel – which includes an altar, hanging sanctuary lamp, cornicing, and ornate ceiling mouldings;
- Three bathrooms.
External features include a decorative Doric portico with shallow bows to either side, timber tripartite sash windows and a hip slated roof.
The gardens that surround the main house are predominantly laid to lawn and are “neatly” landscaped.
They create what the firm described as a wonderful parkland setting and include some wonderful specimen trees which provide colour, shelter and privacy.
Furthermore, a walled garden sits at the rear of the house.
A range of farm buildings lie to the north of the property and include:
- A redundant milking parlour and dairy;
- Hay shed;
- Cubicle accommodation for up to 60 cattle;
- Surry store;
- Hard standing;
- Derelict former cottage;
- Substantial, two-storey former coach house offering potential for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
The land at Nantenan Estate lies within a contiguous block and comprises good grassland plus mature woods, extending to about 208-acres in total.
The topography is gently undulating, with the western side of the farm being about 19 metres / 62 feet above sea level, while the eastern boundary is about 37 metres / 124 feet above sea level.
The woods at Nantenan Estate extend to about 98 acres and are an “attractive” feature due to age and variety of species.
According to the firm, a “key” feature of Nantenan Estate is the extent and combination of land comprising a mixture of silage ground, permanent pasture, and forestry.
The spokesperson noted: “Offering great potential for conservation opportunities, the varied nature and topography of the ring-fenced block of land contributes to the biodiversity of the environment, creating a habitat which is rich in flora, wildlife and birdlife.”
“These natural assets may provide interesting opportunities for a future owner,” the agent suggested.
- Silage ground – 35 acres;
- Permanent pasture – 62 acres;
- Forestry/woodland – 98 acres;
- Miscellaneous – 13 acres.
A feature of the land is the access throughout the estate. This includes extensive frontage onto the R518 and a network of internal roads and tracks.
The land is in fields of varying sizes, which contain water troughs and electric fencing and mature hedging divide.
