Description

Quinville Abbey is a fine and gracious period country residence dating from the 1700’s. The house comprises three stories over garden level of approx.9,000 sq.ft of luxury accommodation. The setting of Quinville Abbey at the end of a long graveled avenue, in delightfully mature pleasure grounds, ensures privacy for the house and walled garden. The surrounding land is renowned for beef fattening quality. It is laid out in seven walled paddocks, with extensive road frontage and is beautifully complemented with mature hardwood trees. Quinville Abbey and 15 acres approximately may be purchased in one lot. Quinville Abbey is one of the finest period residences in the West of Ireland. It enjoys a tranquil pastoral setting. It is convenient to Ennis, Shannon, Galway and by motorway to Dublin. Steeped in history, Quinville Abbey was originally built by the Singleton Family as a Georgian residence. In 1828, it was reconstructed to its present Neo Gothic form by the Pain Brothers, whose other works include the nearby Dromoland Castle. Mary Singleton, a daughter of the house, was the mother of John Singleton Copley, the famed American portrait artist who himself stayed in the house on many occasions. The house was completely refurbished in 1999/2000. Internally, the unique design ensures that all rooms have a south/south west aspect, with expansive views of the gardens. The accommodation comprises rooms with fine tall sash windows. A limestone floor and stepped entrance leads to pleasant airy rooms of generous proportions with ornate plaster work throughout and many other characteristic features such as architraves and impressive chimney pieces. Quinville Abbey enjoys a central and private position within delightfully private grounds. The house is approached through attractive entrance gates, past the recently redecorated original gate lodge and along the tree lined avenue to a large forecourt area in front of the house. The standard of Quinville Abbey is further exemplified by its stunning gardens which feature mature shrubbery,orchard, rose beds, pond, greenhouse and garden sheds. The lands are laid out in a number of walled paddocks, all in grass and enjoy good frontage onto the country road.
