This landmark property is renowned nationally and internationally for it’s stunning and breath-taking location. It is presented on 63 acres on what can only be described as a “one-off, unique setting”.

It is steeped in history and was originally built by The Norman Knight Raymond Les Gros (later known as Redmond). It portrays some of the most beautiful architectural design that can be found in any property of it’s kind. Surrounded by some of the most fabulous coastline in the South East and indeed throughout the country, it is absolutely oozing with potential for possibly a boutique spa, country guesthouse or many other commercial applications.

The magnificent entrance driveway leads to the front door and there are truly captivating gardens and stone buildings, excellent car-parking, private beach and top quality multi-purpose lands. The house overlooks all of these and takes in unrivalled views. It has the potential to make one of the most stately homes in the country, extending to approximately 2,179 sqm (23,454 sqft) over three floors with 22 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, reception and function areas.

While in need of some extensive refurbishment, it maintains some of it’s unique features including the remarkable hand carved feature staircase, beautifully tiled entrance lobby/reception, magnificent fireplaces and unique architectural features (all with their own legendary stories and tales) to name but a few.

The property has been featured extensively over the years on television, film, radio, historical writings, etc., and in fact, it would be a rare occurrence to speak to someone who does not know of the legendary building – such is the history of Loftus Hall. With it’s origins dating back to 1170, the building has had various reincarnations with the current building having had varied uses including a private home, a former hotel and recently a successful tourist destination.

The lands are laid out in six divisions and are currently mostly down to tillage. The land enjoys good frontage with easy access and offers very good multi-purpose soil suitable for many types of crops, horticulture and market gardening, to name but a few.

It is our opinion that there is no finer location in Ireland and beyond that offers such a special setting for any potential clients looking for a unique, yet accessible property with a private beach. The walled garden with captivating features and stone walls offers privacy and a potential gardener’s paradise.

In the right hands this could be the retreat of dreams. The house offers unrivalled views all over the Hook Peninsula, St. Georges Channel and Dunmore East. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a magnificent trophy property.
