A gothic-revival castle in Ireland

Posted on Sun, 14 Nov 2021 by KiM

I’ve dreamt about living in a castle in France or Italy but it appears I need to add Ireland to my list. This home was built in 1870, has 5 bedrooms, is  5,543 sq.ft. and is listed through Christie’s at just over 10M USD. St George’s is a most impressive towered and gabled red-brick Gothic-Revival house. It was built in the late 1870’s designed by George Coppinger Ashlin, one of the leading Irish architects of the 19th century. The description includes things like brass armatures, encaustic ceramic tiled floor, glazed lead panelled glass, chamfered Tudor archway, pink polished marble columns, open timber balustrade, corner turret, conservatory, butler’s pantry, oratory…

Yes Kim, I can see how you would love this castle, what with all the mullion windows. Beautiful.But before you take it, please have owners paint the railings brown
This is getting to be my favorite day of DTI.
