Charming Victorian Wicklow manor on the market for just over €1 million

The beautiful period home was once owned by British writer Frederick Forsyth.

THIS BEAUTIFUL PERIOD property in Wicklow has come onto the market for just over €1 million.

Potential buyers will be interested to know that the home - built around 1860 – is situated on land that was once in possession of Viscount Powercourt, a 19th century position of British nobility that was held by members of the Wingfield family.

At one time during the 20th century the home was also in the possession of famous British author and journalist Frederick Forsyth.
