Cooldrinagh, Kerrymount Avenue, Foxrock, county Dublin.

Interiors are elegant and refined. The five reception rooms, some of which have impressive and highly detailed marble fireplaces and wall panelling, have superb views of one of the real selling points of the property – the gardens.

His legacy is still alive today in the acre of magical gardens that have grown and matured over the past 119 years, since the Edwardian three-bay house was constructed.
