Larmer Property are delighted to bring to the market this stunning detached former gate lodge at Corballyquill, Ashfield, Cootehill, Co. Cavan.

If it's something different you're after, and you love character, this superb detached irregular-plan former gate lodge in a Victorian Picturesque style is just the property for you.

The property was constructed c. 1882 and comprises a two-storey dormer residence. The property has a host of original feature namely the exterior finish with a cat-slide roof descending over the formerly open porch at front corner, which is now tastefully covered in keeping with the style of the property. There is a canted single-storey projection to west, and a projecting bay window to rear. There is a small single-storey extension to east.

The former gate-lodge is now in use as much loved private family home. The property comprises a slate roof only recently replaced. c 8 years. There is a glorious tall chimneystack of stepped brick profile to side of main roof, at the junction to ridge of the bay window. A coursed rock-faced rubble limestone walls with skewed perpend joints are over the brick plinth course and the irregular rock-faced red sandstone quoins. Brick banding to gables, raised brick corner strips to upper part of gables, raised brick platband to eaves of canted projecting bay. A central feature of the property is the a canted projection inset with the carved sandstone coat of arms of the former 'Clements Family crest.

This is a well-constructed late Victorian gate lodge designed by the prominent architect Thomas Drew for Henry Theophilus Clements, employing a multiplicity of materials including limestone, sandstone, brick and earthenware tiles. The sweeping slope to the main roof supported on a squat column, originally with open porch and bench, and the varied palette of materials combine to produce a composition of picturesque architectural quality. The prominent carved coat of arms displays a high level of craftsmanship.

This glorious property rests on approximately 0.81 Acres / 0.33 Hectare level site with Ashfield forest to explore behind the large Chestnut and Copper Beach trees to the rear. It is only 3.5 Kms to Cootehill town and all local amenities available to you.

Strictly by appointment with Larmer Property


Before we can take and offer on a property, we need to have had sight of proof of funds. This is simply, as the term suggests, proof that the buyer has the financial means to complete the transaction at the amount of his/her offer. There are a number of means by which someone can finance the purchase of a transaction and equally a number of methods by which proof of funds can be conveyed to an agent.

Examples of Proof of Funds:
Cash + Mortgage Approval from a Financial Institution (mortgage buyers):
This is the most common proof of funds for those financing a transaction partly with cash and partly with a mortgage. To prove a cash balance, a bank statement or screenshot of same will be acceptable. Alternatively an email from a bank official confirming that a sufficient bank balance is in place is acceptable. To prove that a mortgage is in place, we require a letter of offer or approval in principle from the lending institution. The combined amount of the cash and mortgage approval will need to be at least the amount of your offer on the property.

Cash in Bank (cash buyers)
We require a bank statement(s) in your name with cash balance(s) equal to or in excess of your offer amount. Alternatively a letter from your bank or solicitor confirming a cash balance of at least your offer amount is also acceptable.

Selling an Existing Property
Very often, a buyer will be financing the purchase of a property through the sale of an existing property. From a vendor's point of view, it is a little bit risky to accept an offer that is subject to the sale of another property - this is referred to as being in a chain and if for any reason the sale of that property falls through, the offer then no longer holds any water. If trying to use the sale of an existing property as proof of funds, an email from the selling estate agent as to the offers currently on that property will give some comfort to a vendor and is probably the best thing to do in this situation.
