Corbalton Hall, Cookstown, Tara, Co. Meath – approximately 358-acres – will go under the hammer on Thursday, June 6th at 3 pm in the Carton House Hotel, Maynooth, Co. Kildare (unless previously sold).
“A stunning Georgian villa”
Corbalton Hall was owned by the Corbally-Stourton family for over a-century-and-a-half until it was sold in 1951.
It changed hands again a few years later and after being left vacant, it became somewhat dilapidated. It was then purchased by a couple who set about restoring it.
It was subsequently sold again in 1999 to its current owner who undertook the major restoration and refurbishment of the property, according to its joint selling agents.
“A stunning Georgian villa at the heart of a magical estate, totally restored and upgraded throughout.”
“The property is approached via an impressive stone pier entrance; there is also a separate entrance to the yard.
The distinctive two-storey Georgian villa was designed by the notable Irish architect - Francis Johnston.
The residence has a handsome three-bay façade, a breakfront centre and a Wyatt window above a single-storey Ionic portico, according to its joint selling agents.
The house is dominated by a grand entrance hall with ornate plasterwork on the ceiling and a fine marble fireplace.
It has an inner hall with a cantilevered staircase lit by a large stained glass window and there are two elegant reception rooms on either side of the entrance hall.
The residence is surrounded by parkland and there is a large, walled garden, “beautifully laid-out with immaculate hedges”.
The village of Skyrne is an 8-minute drive away and offers everyday amenities.
A number of schools are located within 45-minutes from the property along with one of the top universities; ample fishing opportunities are available on the River Liffey and River Boyne.
