Oldtown House enjoys a quiet, tranquil setting and provides 498 sqm/5353 sqft of period accommodation. It is a wonderfully proportioned house built to a magnificent standard. The property incorporates modern day living, while still retaining the charm and grandeur of a stately country home with feature fireplaces in many of the rooms.

The entrance hall, with feature wooden staircase is an inviting area, while the lounge, with views to the south and north, is a bright space with high ceilings and feature marble surround fireplace making it a wonderfully relaxing room.

The basement incorporates a kitchen with Edwardian servant bell display still evident on the wall together with several servant bedrooms and storage areas. This could be used for guest accommodation, a study area or indeed a living area. On the first floor are four large bedrooms which each offer stunning views of the rolling countryside. The main family bathroom is located on the first floor.

The lands are laid out in defined paddocks, having loose boxes and an open yard to the rear making it ideal for equestrian activities. Note that the second yard beyond the courtyard is not included in the sale. Please check with the auctioneer for details.

Ardagh (Irish: Ardach; meaning “high field”) is a village about 10 km (6.21 mi) from Longford Town. It is located off the N4 road. It is suggested that Saint Patrick built a church here in the fifth century and installed Saint Mel as bishop. Ardagh’s Heritage Centre tracks the history of the village, including its literary associations, which include featuring pseudonymously in Oliver Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer, and in a poem by Eavan Boland. Edgeworthstown railway station is around 9 kilometres distant.
