Gloriously Restored Irish Landmark Hits the Market for $11.5 Million

Occupying 80 waterfront acres near Dublin, the circa-1730s Seafield House just underwent a $4 million restoration

Occupying 80 waterfront acres just 30 minutes from Dublin’s city center, the circa-1730s Seafield House has a Palladian design that’s attributed to the foremost classical architect of the time, Sir Edward Lovett Pearce. A century later, a striking Italianate tower, as well as a coach and stable yard, was added, bringing the number of bedrooms on the property to ten.

After purchasing the landmark in 1996, the current owners embarked on a $4 million restoration that involved upgrading the 9,000-square-foot main villa’s internal systems and reviving original plasterwork and frescoes. They even brought in Italian statues and 600 mature trees, which now dot the grounds along with a walled garden, a yew tree walk, and a lake.
