Set on 136 Acres of Land, This Historic Irish Home is a True Estate


Location: Waterford, Ireland

Price: €3.25 million (US$3.64 million)

One of the historic great houses of The Blackwater Valley, Salterbridge House was built in 1751 by Richard Musgrave on land acquired from the Lismore Castle estate.

Throughout its history, the house has been sold only once, to the family of the present owners in 1947, making this a rare opportunity to call one of the signature houses of the Blackwater Valley home. While little is known of the first house, it is speculated that it could have been built by the famous English architect William Atkinson, who was also refurbishing Lismore Castle for the Duke of Devonshire at the time, according to the home’s agent Roseanne De Vere Hunt.

The beautifully proportioned house is filled with tasteful period features, including an elegant and commanding main staircase.
