What else could I get for… the €850k pricetag on the Italian Ambassador's former home

We take a look at what that amount of moolah could get you around the rest of the country.

BREAK OUT THE Ferrero Rocher – you, sir or madam, could well be going to the ambassador’s reception.

This rather regal looking home in Meath is the former residence of Italy’s ambassador to Ireland. The property was a diplomatic residence for more than thirty years, from 1974 until 2010.

Built in the 1790s, the Georgian home sits in 14 acres of its own grounds and has an enclosed court yard and stables.

Amedo Guillet, the former occupant, was known around the Kentstown area of Meath simply as ‘Ambassador’ and was one of Italy’s most decorated war heroes – having fought in the Second World War and Spanish Civil War.
