A picturesque 19th century country residence in the Ballymahon area has recently appeared on the local property market with a valuation of €75,000.

Situated in Toome, just outside the town of Ballymahon, ‘Woodview’ was built sometime during the 1840s and sits on a 2.89 acre site which backs onto the Royal Canal. The property also consists of a courtyard with four barns, three stables, tac room, fuel store, and a garden with mature trees.

The house itself has a floor area of 148.6 square metres and consists of four bedrooms - some of which have fireplaces - and a bathroom upstairs, while downstairs there is a lounge, kitchen with Rayburn range and side boiler, parlour and scullery. The adjoining courtyard takes up an area of 22.6 x 20 metres.

While the property does require extensive upgrading and refurbishment, its size, surrounding site and outbuildings, and attractive guide price would make it an ideal option for buyers seeking a countryside renovation project.

‘Woodview’ is being offered for sale by private treaty through Raymond White Auctioneering of Ballymahon, and the property will be open for viewing this Saturday, June 22 between 12pm and 1pm. For further information, call Raymond White Auctioneering on 090 6406002 or visit www.daft.ie/raymondwhite.
