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.

The property is also ideally located, being only a short walk away from Enniskerry village.

The home’s inside floor space extends to more than 2,500 sq. ft. with a total of four bedrooms.


Its main feature is perhaps its drawing room, with a large picture window looking out onto the Dublin/Wicklow mountains. Double doors allow for an easy flow between it and the dining area.


The home’s four bedrooms are situated upstairs where there is also a walk-in hot press.


The country-style kitchen comes with an oil-fired Rayburn range and opens onto a smaller family room.


Another major draw is the property’s back garden. The beautifully landscaped feature has a large lawn, a border stocked with herbaceous plants and a productive vegetable garden.
