IF GREEN SPACE and proximity to nature are high on your must-have lists, Ballybrado House in Co Tipperary might just be the property for you.

Spanning an incredible 9,095 sq ft and built in 1879, Ballybrado is a charming Victorian property, sitting on 100 acres of land.

The estate has its own nature reserve, and animal enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the variety of wildlife which can be spotted throughout, including foxes, badgers, owls and more than 50 species of bird.

Adding to its luxurious feel, the property is approached via a long tree-lined avenue, while the house’s elevated position means it enjoys spectacular views over the River Suir and Knockmealdown Mountains.

Despite the house being extended and upgraded over the years, the property maintains its original charm throughout, with multiple attractive features including wall-panelling, bay windows, high ceilings and coving. 

The ground floor boasts four reception rooms with open fireplaces, while the kitchen and dining area has been modernised to include sleek cabinets and countertops. Also on this floor are multiple storage rooms, a butler’s pantry, laundry room and bathroom.

Upstairs, there are five large bedrooms, two dressing rooms and three bathrooms. The west-wing of the house is currently being used as a self-contained apartment. This accommodation spreads over two floors and comprises a living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The property also boasts a wine cellar in the basement. Glass of red, anyone?

Outside, there are 60 acres of land, much of which has been organically farmed for the past 36 years. A walled garden of one acre is home to a mulberry tree and orchard, while 1.4km of single bank fishing rights along the River Suir are included in the sale.

If the 9,095 sq ft indoors isn’t enough for you, there’s also a gate lodge, former staff cottages, five stables, a tack room, coach house and a five-bay multi-purpose shed on the grounds.

Equine enthusiasts will be kept busy with multiple nearby stud farms, including Coolmore Stud and Ballydoyle Racing Stables, as well as racecourses in Clonmel and Thurles. Cahir town is just a 10-minute drive from the property, while Clonmel is about a 30-minute car ride away.
