Any takers? This €20 million Laois mansion is now on the market


Denise Curtin

Bare with me while I find the chequebook.

If you’ve a spare €20 million floating around, you’re looking for a property with 10 baths and you’ve always dreamed of being the owner of an estate with dreamy Downtown Abbey-esque interiors – well, I’ve found your dream home.

The Abbey Leix Estate in Abbeyleix, Laois is now for sale.

The 18th century mansion with 1,000 acres of woodland is basically our dream home sitting on a picturesque setting that’s soaked in history.

The house is a three-storey, compromising of 9 bedrooms, 10 baths, a music room, decoration by artisit De Gree and some of Ireland’s most important tree collections on the property grounds to name a few things.

Want a look at just some of the divine rooms?

Well, firstly, this is the outside of the property that could be yours.

The view of the gardens taken from the bedroom.

One of the many open spaces suitable for hosting parties or dinners.

Or you could just use this massive drawing room.

The music room complete with chandelier and divine plasterwork.

One of the many bedrooms, all of which look exceptionally large leading it to be very hard to choose one “main bedroom”.

One of 10 baths for bathing. Featuring a vintage look not often seen in bathrooms nowadays.

Imagine that fire in the winter while you’re having a soak – dream.

Insta goals in another one of many beautiful rooms for lounging in.

You can read all about the mansion’s history, get in touch with the auctioneers and who knows, maybe place a bid on the house over on MyHome here.

Invite me around for tea when you purchase, please.
