DescriptionA RARE AND EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A PRIVATE & SUBSTANTIAL RESIDENTIAL ESTATE, 'ANNESGROVE HOUSE', IN NEED OF RESTORATION AND REFURBISHMENT ON 258 ACRES APPROX.
The primary residence, Annesgrove House, originally dates back to c. 1720, with subsequent extensions and alterations in c. 1800 and 1872. The property has been idle for a number of years and now requires complete restoration and refurbishment to return the property to its former splendour. There is also a separate farmhouse (currently tenanted) located on the south western side of the Estate.
The out offices comprise a derelict stable yard and disused sheds immediately north of the main house with a separate farm yard to the south west.
The entire holding extends to approx. 258 acres to include approximately 40 acres of forestry and approximately 8 acres of a former quarry. Of the balance, some 180 acres approx. were previously farmed under contract for the last 7 years. This contract has now expired.
LOCATION & DESCRIPTION
Annesgrove House is located a mere 25 kilometres (25 minute drive) west of Cork City Centre and Cork International Airport, on the periphery of the charming village of Aherla. This restoration opportunity provides significant scope to retain and reinstate many of the original features with undeniable potential to extend and modernise the overall dwelling, if desired, subject to the appropriate permits.
The main house, which extends to over 3,500 sq.ft over two floors, is bright and spacious with well proportioned rooms. The accommodation includes three Reception Rooms, six Bedrooms and a range of ancillary rooms suitable for conversion to include bathrooms / en-suites etc.
The House is approached by a picturesque tree lined avenue, bordered with a traditional Cork stone wall and fronted by an imposing period entrance of stone and cast iron railings and gates.
The avenue continues past the Main House to a large former Stable Yard, currently disused, with obvious potential for modernisation and development.
Splayed entrance, built c.1870, comprising spear-headed cast-iron railings set in limestone plinths. Square-profile cast-iron piers with double-leaf cast-iron gates, and terminating square profile limestone piers having chamfered edges and cut caps. Located at entrance to Annesgrove...(Ref: National Inventory of Architectural Heritage).

Planning permission was granted in 2013 under TP Ref. 13/5008 for a “Change of use from abandoned quarry to agricultural land by the placing on site of surplus construction materials, i.e. inert soil/ rock, concrete and top soil”.
The out offices comprise a derelict stable yard and disused sheds immediately north of the main house with a separate derelict farm yard to the south west with independent access.
