The contents of the part Georgian part Victorian manor, Viewmount House, will go under the hammer at Goresbridge Antiques Auctions on July 29th on behalf of the Hanlon family and various other clients.
The stately residence was once the childhood home of award-winning
author, poet and journalist Kildare Dobbs whose work was heavily influenced by
his time spent in “rooms lit by lamps and candles, heated by log fires in
marble chimney pieces” as depicted in his autobiography Running The Rapids: The
Life Of A Writer.
The original dower house was built circa 1750 with the main
house we see today added around 1850. All original features have been
maintained and changed little since Kildare Dobbs roamed its hallways including
flagstone and tiled floors, marble fireplaces and superbly ornate cornicing all
of which serves as a backdrop for the hundreds of items and objects of interest
that form the contents clearance.
Another notable resident was renowned architect Vincent O'Callaghan, whose early architectural drawings, plans and instruments feature among the 800 lots on offer in the upcoming auction.
The sale will also include Georgian,
Victorian, Edwardian Furniture, Quality Dining room, Sitting room, Bedroom and
Occasional Furniture, Oil Paintings, Prints, Clocks, Glass, Pine, Brass,
Porcelain, Mirrors, Waterford Crystal, Garden furniture & many other
Viewing takes place at Viewmount House while the auction itself
will be held at the Goresbridge Sales Complex at 1pm Monday 29th
