This Georgian mansion just minutes from Dublin is packed with high-end tech features

It dates back to 1792, but the 17-acre estate has had an impressive contemporary upgrade.

FOR SOME BUYERS, a home like Emsworth is a pie-in-the-sky dream, but for the family currently living within its Georgian-era walls, it’s an everyday home.

Sitting on 17 acres of landscaped gardens, the 225-year-old property provides everything a modern homeowner could need – with plenty of added extras. Arriving outside Emsworth’s electric gates, on Kinsealy’s Malahide Rd in Dublin 17, you’re met with a long driveway, bounded by woodland and feature lighting.

Walkers and runners can avail of the 2km of private pathways that have been marked within the wooded area, plus there’s also a walled orchard, a playing pitch, a well-maintained tennis court, and two garages with space for six cars in total.

The estate has plenty to enchant lovers of water, too. Aside from the heated swimming pool to the rear of the property – one of Ireland’s first, measuring 20m x 10m and with its own pool house and barbecue – there are two feature pools at the front, and a newly installed mini-lake tucked away on the grounds.

Emsworth dates back to 1792, but inside, the property feels like any other contemporary residence, with plenty of high-end tech extras too.

The main house comprises three reception rooms, a kitchen, cinema room, four bedrooms and a main family bathroom.

Three of the four bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and the full house is integrated with Bang & Olufsen sound and TVs.

Heating in the main house and lighting in all areas of the estate can be controlled via iPhone or iPad, which no doubt comes in handy given the vast scale of the site.

Other features of this impressive home include a Febvre cooled wine cellar with its own kitchen and storage room, a Pilates room with Reformer equipment, a full suite of remote-access security cameras and a restored 1960s Aga in the kitchen.

Despite its country-living feel, Emsworth is located just an eight-minute drive from Dublin airport, and under 30 minutes from Dublin’s north city.

It’s also under ten minutes drive from Malahide Village, and is close to Malahide Golf Club, Portmarnock Golf Links and the famous Velvet Strand at Portmarnock.

Emsworth is on sale for €7,500,000 from Sherry FitzGerald Country Homes, Farms & Estates via Daft.ie.
