Auctioneer Gordon Lennox knows his Latin. The Sherry Fitzgerald director's description of Templecarrig House at Greystones in Wicklow as 'rus in urbe' indicates his vintage and also describes perfectly this lovely house on 10ac on the edge of Greystones and the Greater Dublin area.
The place is an oasis between the urban sprawl and the lovely countryside of the Garden County and is on the private treaty market with a guide price of €3.255m.
Templecarrig was once the Georgian home of the 14th Earl of Meath before he succeeded to the title and moved to the nearby Kilruddery House.
Located on the brow of a hill and approached by a sweeping avenue the house is set in its own parkland.
The property includes the six bedroom main residence, a one bedroom gate lodge and an extensive stable yard all set on 10.25ac.
The double fronted house with bay windows on three levels commands great views out to the Irish Sea and over the Wicklow countryside.
Downstairs the accommodation includes a hallway, drawing room, dining room, sitting room and a conservatory with a rear hallway leading to a breakfast room and a fully fitted kitchen.
While other facilities include a pantry, a utility/laundry room and downstairs WC.
