Private estate with a spectacular coastal situation
Moyview is a magnificent residential and agricultural estate, set on beautiful, mature grounds and extending to about 131 acres (53 hectares) in total. It is situated in the west of Ireland and on the banks of the tidal River Moy Estuary, with magnificent views and a haven for wildlife. The estate includes an impressive principal house with mews cottage, two further cottages, a derelict cottage and a useful range of outbuildings. The productive farmland lies within a ring-fenced block and there is no excluded or unowned property within the boundary.
The house is approached through a bell-mouthed stone wall with piers and electrically operated, wrought iron gates, which open to an attractive sweeping tarmacadam driveway, flanked by terraced lawns and leading to parking at the front of the house. Moyview House occupies a private, south-easterly facing position. A key feature of the estate is that the western boundary is formed by about 1.4 km of waterfrontage which offers stunning views over the glistening River Moy Estuary and rolling countryside.
The bright accommodation is laid out over two floors of generous and elegant proportions, as shown on the accompanying plans. Notable internal features include ceiling roses and cornicing, architraves, open fires with decorative fireplaces and timber beams. External features include dressed stone quoins and foliage on the front façade. There is double glazing and broadband.
The accommodation is entered through a light-filled vestibule which leads onto a further four reception rooms and a conservatory. The bedroom accommodation is laid out on the first floor and includes three-bedroom suites, plus a master bedroom suite comprising a bathroom and a dressing room with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes. It also has two large windows with fabulous, uninterrupted views of the River Moy Estuary which joins the Atlantic Ocean.
The house includes a swimming pool complex situated within a wing to the south. Beyond the swimming pool complex is a mews cottage which includes a kitchen/sitting room/dining room and two bedrooms. The mews has a separate entrance to the rear of the house.
Adjoining the rear of the property are multiple storage areas and two garages which are separated by a two-storey tower.
The house is situated within mature gardens. With the accommodation being laid out in a "U" shape, a courtyard is created to the rear of the house. The fourth side is enclosed by a wall to create a private garden with a terrace and beds which are well-stocked with shrubs and flowering plants and separated by paved paths. The garden grounds surround the house and include an array of attractive mature trees, interspersed by areas of lawn and a green house.
Situated off the avenue is a detached, single-storey cottage. The accommodation is laid out in an "L" shape and comprises:
Hall, dining kitchen, sitting room, three bedrooms (one en suite), bathroom, utility room and store.
There is double glazing, an attached garage, parking and a garden predominantly laid to lawn.
The cottage is presently vacant.
A charming detached, two-storey lodge cottage of traditional construction is situated at the main estate entrance and comprises:
Vestibule, sitting room, dining kitchen, inner hall, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a store.
The lodge is a beautiful stone structure beneath a pitched slated roof and has undergone a programme of renovation and redecoration. It has double glazing, a parking area and a small garden.
The cottage has previously been used for short-term rental accommodation.
A single-storey former gate lodge is situated at the farm entrance. It is of traditional construction and is in a derelict state of repair. Subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent, it could be developed to provide further residential accommodation.
A range of outbuildings is situated to the south of the main house. These are a combination of traditional and modern construction and provide accommodation for livestock and general-purpose storage. The farm yard is accessed off the main driveway and also has a separate farm access from the main road.
The farmland at Moyview is let on a Conacre basis to a number of local farmers for silage and grazing. The ploughable pasture lies within a ring-fenced block and is generally level, with a gentle westerly elevation and rises from the estuary on the west to about 26 metres (85 feet) on the south easterly corner. It is presently all in grass with extensive road frontage on the eastern side and good internal farm roads.
There is a mains water supply to the land and electric fencing.
