Of Russian extract, citizen of Sweden, he had a penchant for abandoned Irish stone built pre famine farmhouses, restoring and giving new purpose to them..... an extraordinary flair!
This is one such property, tastefully restored and extended to have every modern convenience, where there may have been cows, or maybe a few pigs, now there could be a luxury en suite bedroom, or a dining room.... all spaces are thoughtfully used, not necessarily in the order in which one might expect..... and all set amidst carefully planted gardens.
