For Sale By Online Auction On Friday, 24th May At 12 Noon

QUINN PROPERTY are delighted to launch this distinguished 18th-century Irish Country House, set on circa 65 acres of some of the finest quality land in the county with pleasant views over the surrounding countryside and Tara Hill as a picturesque backdrop. The estate is originally thought to occupy the site of an Augustinian Friary, thus the name ‘St. Austin’s’.

The local area offers a vibrant array of amenities to include boutique shopping, award winning hotels, bars and restaurants, sandy beaches and hiking trails. St Austin’s occupies a highly accessible location, a mere 6 kilometres from Arklow and the M11 and 9 kilometres from Gorey. With such swift access to the M11, Dublin is a very comfortable commute of 80 kilometres while Dublin airport can be accessed within an hour’s drive. For golf enthusiasts, St. Austin’s is perfectly situated with several well-renowned courses in the locality including Courtown, Arklow and Woodenbridge Golf Clubs as well as The European Club. There is an excellent selection of pre-school, primary and secondary schools nearby.

The property benefits from two separate entrances, each with its own Gate Lodge. The main entrance provides a suitable welcome into this beautiful estate with large granite piers and a sweeping, gravelled driveway through attractive woodland, lush fields and mature specimen trees. The main residence comprises a two storey over basement Georgian dwelling with access from both garden level and first floor. The property is positioned within the grounds to afford maximum privacy.

Symmetrical in composition, St. Austin’s is an aesthetically pleasing residence and a beautiful balanced example of Georgian architecture. The front granite stone façade showcases a proportioned arrangement of windows with a centrally located entrance approached by a flight of seven cut-granite steps with cast iron railings. All seven front facing windows have cut-granite sills with the main structure exhibiting corner quoin stone features.

With independent access from the courtyard, a wing of the residence provides comfortable accommodation for guests, while it could also be utilised as a self-contained unit. Furthermore, ‘The Coach House’ comprises a two storey house located within the courtyard which provides further accommodation for guests/live-in staff/tenants.

The interior boasts generously proportioned rooms with high ceilings showcasing original ornate ceiling rose centre pieces, intricate mouldings, decorative fireplaces (including Adams Marble mantelpieces), timeless and elegant spaces associated with a house of such character, whilst also presenting an airy and open atmosphere. The main reception rooms and hall are embellished with fine friezes and delicate ceiling plasterwork.

To the rear of the house, you will find a sheltered garden with manicured lawns and a selection of mature trees and shrubbery. The grounds offer a range of elaborate features including a walled-garden, stone outbuildings, a range of farm buildings, concrete yards, sheds and a tennis court.
