Castletown Estate (also known as Castletown Cox, one of Ireland’s finest Palladian mansions, has been listed on sale.
Extending to in excess of 36,000 sq. ft. in its entirety, the interiors of Castletown are equally as impressive as the exterior with rich Rococo plaster decoration throughout by famed stuccodore Patrick Osborne of Waterford.
The Estate extends to 513 acres, and at its heart are the beautiful, formal gardens designed by the Dowager Marchioness of Salisbury, a woman once described by the New York Times as ‘Britain`s high priestess of historic garden design`.
Designed by Sardinian architect Davis Ducart for Michael Cox in c.1767, the towering castle exceeds 36,000 square feet with 10 bedrooms & 10 bathrooms. The interiors are finished with rich Rococo plaster decoration throughout by famed stuccodore Patrick Osborne of Waterford. Inside you’ll find extensive mouldings, a music room, billiard room, wine cellar, grand staircase and six reception rooms.
Earlier this year the historic property made headlines when a beneficiary of the family trust which owns Castletown Cox objected the sale, which was on the market seeking offerings above €17.5 million. The property is back on the market with Knight Frank, however no sales price has been revealed.
