One of Boyle’s most historic buildings has come on the market.
Kingston Hall in Rockingham was built by the King family in the early 1770’s. When the family moved to Rockingham House, Kingston Hall became the residence of the Land Steward for the estate.
It is now for sale by Private Treaty with “price on application”.
Estate Agents David O’Connor Auctioneering are advertising the property within the park as “A unique property containing period building complex on 5 acres within 10 minute walk to Lough Key Forest Park”.
“The property is located within the former grounds of Rockingham Estate and is approximately 1km from the entertainment facilities in Lough Key Forest Park. The site consists of approximately 5 acres containing a complex of ruin structures. The buildings are unoccupied. All buildings are rubble limestone construction with cut stone and brick details. The buildings are composed around a central courtyard (53m x 25m). There is a barrel/balted brick underground cellar in the courtyard (16m x 5m) access by external limestone steps. Access roads on the north boundary of the site and to the East of the main house survive, though overgrown. The circular Dovecote is situated on the south of the residence, this is constructed with cut limestone base, brick walls and a brick staircase within”.
“Kingston Hall was built in the early 1770’s and was inhabited until the 1950’s. The house is not a listed building, but there is an architectural impact assessment completed on the buildings which would govern the building works”, according to the Estate Agent.
