Newcastle House, arguably one of Co Longford’s most impressive historical residences has come onto the market, with a guide price of €1.3m.

Dating back some 300 years, Manor House is located along the banks of the River Inny, in the very heart of the midlands.

Equipped with no fewer than 17 ensuite bedrooms, selling agents Raymond White Auctioneers, are expecting a hefty volume of interest from prospetive buyers over the coming days.

The house proudly stands on 50 acres of mature parkland and is surrounded by a further 900 acres of forestry.

Steeped in history, the mansion was once home to late nineteenth century landlords the King-Harmen Family.

Once viewed as the region’s largest estate with over 30,000 acres to its name, its current owners have lovingly restored it to its former glory. The impressive and comfortable six reception rooms have large open fires while the 17 guestrooms (all ensuite)are superbly decorated.

Each has its own period furnishings with splendid views of the grounds enjoyed throughout.

There is also an outer courtyard and outbuildings, making the addition of extra accomodation all the more possible.
