A remarkable property on The Curragh
Beech Tree House is a south facing property that occupies an elevated position with stunning uninterrupted panoramic views across The Curragh landscape. It offers potential to deliver a top quality project subject to planning permission.
Dating back to the 1800s, Beech Tree House has been home to a number of equine enthusiasts, including Charley Canavan, trainer of Valentine who finished third in the 1840 English Grand National. Owned by John Power the horse gave his name to Valentine's Brook, one of the famous fences of the race at Aintree. Charley's sons, William who was champion jockey in Ireland in 1870, winning the Irish Derby the same year and brother Davy (who won the Irish Grand National in 1882) turned Beech Tree House into Canavan's Tavern after he relinquished his riding licence for another.
Beech Tree House was purchased in 1902 by Mr T H Griffin, Veterinary Surgeon who established a successful equine practice. The property has since remained in the Griffin family where, over the succeeding generations, it became the base of one of the foremost equine veterinary practices in Ireland.
Outbuildings & Grounds
The house is situated centrally within formal gardens and grounds which are predominantly laid to lawn at the front. This area has a sense of tranquillity and is a delightful spot to watch racehorses canter up the many different gallops on The Curragh every morning. To the rear of the house lies a railed paddock extending to about 0.4 acre.
There is a range of traditional outbuildings (about 1,184 sq ft) which are positioned to the rear of the property around an idyllic courtyard. These buildings are currently used for storage where the veterinary practice operated in the last century. The accommodation is laid out on the accompanying plans.
