Marcus Magnier, Colliers International said: “The Estate is easily one of the finest compact estates in Ireland which has been impeccably restored and maintained. 

“Built in the early 1700s, and rebuilt in its current Georgian style in 1840, Borleagh Manor has a fascinating history.   In the 1960’s it was sold to film idol Richard Greene – most famous for playing Robin Hood in the 1950s TV series.”

In all there is approx 925 sqm (9,950 sq ft) of accommodation in the main house.  The current owners have thoroughly restored and renovated the Manor.  It features multiple reception rooms on the ground floor as well as four bedrooms upstairs with magnificent en suites, and a dressing room off the master bedroom.   The basement has been designed to appeal to children (of all ages).  The corridor is painted like a fun streetscape, and doors lead off to a games room, snooker room, wine cellar, study, laundry and boot room.

There are 30 stables in two immaculate yards, plus barns, foaling boxes and a seven furlong uphill stretch that a previous owner had laid sand on for a training gallop.  There are also two guest cottages on the grounds - one has four bedrooms and the other two.

Beyond the formal gardens and stable yards, there is a large walled kitchen garden that the owners have restored, with fruit trees and vegetable beds.

Magnier concludes:  “Borleagh Manor is a perfect haven for anybody who thrives on privacy, and appreciates living in a property steeped in historical value.  It certainly has a unique appeal to horse lovers, breeders or trainers; and is within easy reach of Dublin.”
