Gandon built villa set in c.17acres
Built in c.1794 Emsworth holds the unique distinction of being Irelands only surviving Gandon built villa. Entered through electric gates and approached by a magnificent tree lined avenue, one instantly forgets that they are just a short drive from the City Centre. A striking pediment extends over the whole length of the two storey three bay centre which is flanked on either side by single storey over lapping wings, each containing a single bay.
A magnificent double height hallway is entered through a fan lighted doorway which is flanked on either side by intricate Doric columns. The hallway itself contains the original flagstone floor and the present owners have reinstated a copy of the beautiful Wedgewood wallpaper which was originally produced in the 1790s. The hallway leads to an impressive drawing room with a beautifully intricate marble fireplace, dinning room, sitting room and study, all with 12ft ceilings, solid wood floors and original ornate fireplaces. A stunning Waterford crystal chandelier hangs over the dinning room table and each reception room has views over the surrounding gardens and lawns. A small set of steps leads to a large family kitchen, with a family room, store and laundry room attached.
Upstairs there are five good sized double bedrooms. The master suite contains a large ensuite and dressing room with an array of built in wardrobes, marble countertops and a sunken Jacuzzi bath.
The original coach house has been converted into an office area with a two- bedroom apartment above. The ground floor consists of five offices with hardwood floors and exposed brick walls, maintaining the rustic theme. The principle office contains a stunning double height arched window which overlooks the walled garden and swimming pool.
Outside there are numerous outbuildings, which include a triple car garage, laundry room and various other stores. Two of the original farm buildings have been maintained with one upgraded with a central heating system to provide a large dry storage area. A large log store and gardeners shed complete the outbuildings.
The beautifully manicured gardens are a particular feature of Emsworth. With approximately 17 acres of land surrounding the house. Box hedging and mature trees line the numerous lands around the property. The original walled garden is still intact and now includes an outdoor swimming pool; and a tennis court completes the numerous additions to Emsworth. A large paddock would provide ample room for a few horses.
