The Househappy team is sad to be leaving Dublin today! We had such an amazing few days at the Web Summit, we thought we’d commemorate our time here with another Property of the Week from Ireland.
Located in the heart of the Meath countryside in a village called Rathmolyon near the historic town of Trim, this Georgian castle dates back to the 1750s. Though it was initially a fairly modest home, the Tobertynan House was majorly upgraded in 1810 when the battlements and corner turrets were added by the owner at the time, James MacEvoy, a distinguished doctor and co-founder of the college of surgeons. The house has also been connected to a number of people with regal ties including Sir Bernard Burke and the 4th Duke de Stacpoole.
The Tobertynan House is a castellated structure with two stories over a basement of three bays with battlements. There are four magnificent cylindrical corner turrets and a three story battlemented addition to one side. The 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom home includes an entrance hall, drawing room, cloakroom, separate dining and breakfast rooms, and a wine cellar. Beside the house is a modern stable yard with 7 stables, a sand arena, and fenced turn out paddocks.
Though the home is in need of some repair and renovations, the bones of the house are pretty incredible. For $515,174 (€375,000), the Tobertynan House could fulfill anyone’s dream of being a king or queen––or at least living like one.
The Tobertynan House is listed by Ganly Walters.
