Additional Information

We are delighted to offer these two properties that are unique both in the style and their private setting down the lane off Glebe Road West. No 28 is a generously proportioned with three bedrooms and three reception rooms. Although the house requires attention, it is oozing with potential and is obvious from you arrive to see this property. Separately addressed but sharing the site is 28A. This property, with some modernisation, would be ideal accommodation for an elderly relative or grown up child requiring some extra supervision but offering certain independence. Another option would be for an office for home working or a studio subject to any business consents required for this. With a range of buildings and a generous site in a unique location, we can recommend this property with great confidence.

Tobarcooran House was built in 1883 as part of a gentleman's estate and farm. It is best known for being the one-time home of Lilian Bland, pioneer aviator, and the first woman in the British Isles and possibly the world to design, build and fly her own plane in 1910/11. Ironically named The Mayfly her plane was developed and built at Tobarcooran. The property in sale is the last remaining part of Tobarcooran House being the Land Steward's house and the estate coach houses and stables, modernised and extended around 50 years ago.
