Joint Agents Brian Gleeson Property and Sherry FitzGerald Hennessy are delighted to bring this impressive country residence to market.
Muckridge House is set on circa 102 acres located on the edge of the picturesque and National Heritage seaside town of Youghal in East Cork, close to the protected Youghal brickworks and Heathfield Tower.
It is rare for 100 plus acres to come to the market in East Cork/West Waterford and it is almost
certain to appeal to entrepreneurial dairy farmers who are looking to add scale to their business.
Muckridge House is a 19th Century heritage double-bow fronted two storey over basement residence.
The house is approached by a sweeping flight of stone steps to the front door which leads into a central entrance hall. Internally the rooms are arranged around the central entrance hall with the staircase offset to the left at the rear of the hall. The rooms retain many original features such as fireplaces, decorative cornicing, timber panelled doors and shutters. The rooms take full advantage of the large Georgian style windows and are both bright and extremely spacious, with high ceilings throughout.
To the rear of Muckridge House are a number of associated outbuildings including a two storey coach house/barn with an arched vehicular entrance.
Our research tells us this home was a lived-in mansion from the late 1700s with the Hobson family mentioned in historical documents as residents at Muckridge from the mid 1770s. In 1814 Richard Fitzgerald is recorded as resident there, followed by a reference to William Fitzgerald in 1837.
This home with an abundance of charisma and character now awaits an owner to restore it to its former glory.
The main residence comprises of an Entrance Hall, Drawing room, Dining room, Family room, Games room, Office, Kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, full basement with Cellar and 8 further rooms.
Various associated outbuildings arranged around 3 sides of a yard, including a two storey coach house and other outbuildings.
