Watch: A Laois Georgian-era mansion with its own mill is on the market

A Laois Georgian-era mansion complete with its own mill can be yours for for €850,000, an asking price which has dropped by €15,000.

For that price, you don’t just get a 19th-century country pile with Newtown House, you also get its adjacent four-storey stone corn mill, complete with mill wheel and mill pond.

This is all set on 9.4 acres of grounds with frontage to the River Goul.

Built in the Regency style, the house is just three miles from Durrow and 9 miles from Abbeyleix.

The main house is 3,358 sq ft with five bedrooms and three reception rooms — drawing room, dining room, and study — all at entrance level.

The kitchen is on the lower ground floor and is triple-aspect with an Aga and exposed beams. There’s one en-suite bedroom on this floor too and the other four upstairs.

As well as the mill, other outbuildings include a coach house, cottage and grain store.

Property website Daft.ie says it was Built in circa 1801.

“The house is extremely pleasant with a rugged stone façade complete with attractive brick window and door surrounds and distinctive overhanging eaves, which include timber detailing.

“Set out over 3 floors a flight of limestone steps adorned with decorative wrought iron railings lead up to the front doors, twin glazed French doors that lead to the reception hall, principal reception rooms and stair hall,” the auctioneers state.
