Restoration Ready: A Regal Irish Mansion in Need of Lots of Love Asks $1.2M

For some, buying a home to renovate is much more exciting than finding something move-in ready. Restoring properties restores their souls and flipping homes makes them flip out with excitement. If you’re in that crowd, this majestic Irish mansion in Carlow county is the ultimate discovery. Listed for € 990,000 or approximately $1.2 million, Browne’s Hill House is a renovation fantasy.

Built in 1763, the home has a carved stone exterior and interiors mostly left unchanged for centuries. Worn, but full of exquisite original details, it is just in need of the right buyer to give it lots of love an a bit of pizazz.

After renovating the three-story home, imagine getting to spend summers or holidays with family here. It may feel like living in a period drama when dining beside finely carved plasterwork, creating artwork in the drawing room, or having a Guinness in the study. Stroll the five-acre grounds to find the stable yard, where horses can even live grandly once the structure is upgraded.

The 14,111-square-foot home with eight large bedrooms also offers a picturesque perch for viewing Ireland’s world-famous green landscape. Both the Killeshin Hills and Wicklow mountains are in sight, while Dublin is just an hour away.

Whether a longtime traveler is looking for a home base, or a designer has been hankering for a new project, this property has endless potential. Get in touch with listing agent David Ashmore of Ireland Sotheby’s International Realty to nab this opportunity.
