Moorland, Whitshed Road, The Burnaby, Greystones, Co Wicklow
€2.85m Sherry FitzGerald (01) 287 4005
This magnificent six bedroom mansion next to Greystones Golf Club was built in the early 1900’s for the family of George Jacob, chairman of the famous biscuit company W&R Jacob. Now it’s for sale for the first time in a generation – and it’s a smash of a home. The ground floor includes a reception hall, a salon, a dining room, a TV room, an eat-in kitchen, a study and a guest toilet. Five bedrooms (two ensuite) and a family bathroom are upstairs. But it’s the top floor that really takes the biscuit, with a playroom that doubles as a cinema, alongside a studio, a dark room for photography, and another bedroom.
