Rathnure House


Jordan Auctioneers on the instructions of the executors are bringing to market a splendid residential farm on 79 acres in the village of Rathnure, Co.Wexford at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains for sale by public auction.

Rathnure House is located approximately 12km from Enniscorthy, 18km to New Ross and 20km to Bunclody.

The residence comprises a two storey farmhouse with rear extension on a lovely elevated site.

It is approached via a tree lined avenue and is set back from the road. Although in need of modernisation it comprises a number of reception rooms in addition to three/four bedrooms with a total floor area of approximately 230 sq.m (2,475 sq.ft). Located inside the main entrance is an old gate lodge/cottage which is derelict but would be ideal for replacement at a future date.

There is a traditional farmyard located to the rear of residence providing a number of old sheds and derelict outhouses under a partial concrete and gravel base.

The land extends to 79 acres and is primarily laid out in one block in a number of divisions. The entire is very good quality land with natural boundaries and hedgerows throughout, good road frontage and is ideal for a number of farming enterprises and classified as ‘Clonroche series’ soils which are known as some of the most productive.
