Elsinore is a cluster of large, detached houses off Church Road in Delgany, Co Wicklow, built in the grounds of a 19th-Century house also known as Elsinore.
Famous past residents include Westlife's Brian McFadden and Kerry Katona, who lived there for a time.
Down the road from the McFadden-Katona family home is Number 3 Elsinore, built in 2000 and named 'Barefa'.
It is 3,719 sq ft, with five bedrooms and three reception rooms reached from a central entrance hall where there is also a solid ash cantilevered staircase rising up through the three floors.
Left of the entrance porch is a dining room with double glazed doors opening to a drawing room measuring roughly 18ft by 20ft, and which comes with a fireplace. From the drawing room you reach a curved, 300 sq ft conservatory with doors to the garden.
To the right of the entrance hall is a family room with another fireplace, and this room opens into a triple-aspect, L-shaped kitchen and breakfast room, with more doors to the garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room, and there is also a guest toilet in the entrance hall.
Up on the first floor there is a study, which might be used as a spare bedroom if necessary. There are four other bedrooms on this level, all en-suite, while the whole of the second floor attic level is given over to the fifth bedroom, together with an en-suite and eaves storage.
'Barefa' is on a site of about a fifth of an acre, including a detached, lofted garage. The gardens feature densely planted flowerbeds, ornamental trees, a water feature and several paved seating areas.
The house is a about one-and-a-half kilometres from the N11, getting you to Dublin city centre in about 45 minutes.
