An impressive listed mansion has gone on the market in Newtown Cunningham.
Bogey House is a home fit for a Duke. This seven-bed former hunting lodge was built on the Abercorn Estates C.1730. It served as a country house for the Duke of Abercorn and was the centrepiece of a large hunting estate which contained a walled garden, many acres of farm and woodland and various buildings associated with the estate, demonstrating the wealth of the family.
For a large part of the nineteenth century, Bogay House was the residence of Rev Edward Bowen and his family.
It was used as a spacious family home until recently. Now it’s up for sale with an asking price of €650,000 with Henry Kee Estate Agents.
The 7000 m² Private Period residence comes with in excess of 18 acres of private grounds.
The agents said: “Offered for sale furnished, with numerous pieces of antique furniture, this property would work as a fabulous spacious family home. as well as having great commercial potential. Viewing by appointment only.”
“Privately positioned with an attractive wooded avenue leading up to the front entrance. This two storey over basement house extends to approximately 7,000 square feet and is centrally positioned on over 18 acres of mature wooded grounds and parkland. Retaining many original features, the ground floor and first floor were used as a spacious family home until recently, with a full range of rooms in both the basement and attic areas requiring some refurbishment. A stunning sandstone circular staircase connects all four floors and is just one of the many original features contained throughout this listed historic house.”
