It was here that Samuel Grubb, a prominent corn merchant, miller and draper leased the lands in 1800 and greatly redeveloped the mill, which still stands. To the north of the medieval castle he constructed Castlegrace House, a three storey house together with the Mill House, a gate lodge which also doubled as a bank for the mill business. The property was later acquired freehold from the Glengal Estate under the Encumbered Estates Act. Surrounded by it own prime farmland and commanding delightful aspects over the surrounding countryside Castlegrace enjoys an idyllic, secluded position and a tranquil location, whilst being with easy reach of the M8 (Dublin-Cork) motorway affording rapid access to the country's main centres and international airports. The house is bright and airy, being arranged over three floors including a semi-basement. A raised ground floor offers generous well-proportioned accommodation with 3.60 metre ceiling heights lit by large sash windows. Extending to circa 650 sq metres (7000 sq ft), the impressive accommodation includes reception hall, four reception rooms, seven bedrooms and four bathrooms together with annexe and a wealth of space to the lower ground floor. Still keeping watch over the river Tar and part of the pleasure grounds are the remains of a late 13th Century de Bermingham castle, noted as a location in Stanley Kubrick's 1975 film "Barry Lyndon". The entire property extends to c. 48.61 hectares (120.1 acres) and includes the mill together with Mill House and Bridge Cottage. The lands are laid out in 12 main divisions, with c 27.4 ha (67.6 acres) in top class tillage and pasture and c. 13.3 ha (33 acres) in cider apple orchards with the balance in river and amenity. SOUTH TIPPERARY The Castlegrace Estate is located in a quiet rural area some 4 km from the village of Clogheen and 11 km from the busy market town of Cahir; with a comprehensive range of shopping, financial and leisure facilities.
