A Cheap Mansion

Part refurbished Irish Georgian stately home for sale for just £136,000; it was originally built by the Fry family

 

What could be one of the cheapest Georgian stately homes ever has been placed on the market for just £136,000 ($179,000, €150,000 or درهم658,000).

 

Three storey, five bay, mid-18th century Frybrook House in the centre of the town of Boyle in County Roscommon, Ireland – the birthplace of Maureen O’Sullivan (Jane in the Tarzan movies) – stands in 3 acres of land beside the River Boyle

Frybrook House appeared to be in much better condition externally in the early 2000s

 

Described recently by The Times as a “hot stately home,” the 8 bedroom, 8 bathroom mansion was built for Henry Fry, a merchant from Somerset, after he established a weaving operation on the site in the 1740s. It was run as a bed and breakfast in the early 2000s and last offered on the open market for £309,000 – with additional land and properties – in 2015.

 

Period features include fine restored plasterwork, original cornicing, window shutters, marble fireplaces and roll top baths and though the property appears to be in some state of disrepair and dereliction, it is described as “partly restored and refurbished.” Sadly, pictures also show the setting is somewhat spoilt by a modern industrial building to the rear.

 

Frybrook House is listed by REA Seamus Carthy.

  1. I wonder why the exterior is so neglected in comparison to the interior. What went wrong? A dispute or a repossession? Such a pity but probably quite easily put right. Too much for a little old pensioner like me though sadly.

  2. I’d pay £250k NOT to live there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The industrial parks next door on both side probably spill pollution everywhere and the house itself is so ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball required —— very urgently in this case!!!!!!!!!!!! Build more industrial park!!!!!!!!!!! That’s all this land is fit for!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I don’t think that it is ugly. Quite the contrary. It is a classic example of a fine Palladian house, and the rooms are well proportioned.

      The low price reflects the industrial area, and the fact that it could use another 3-4 acres.

      Personally, I rather like it.

  3. The Irish property market is awash with stunning houses that seem cheap still. Speaking as a property professional, I shall say the time to buy is indeed now if you are after a house of this type.

  4. It could make a spectacular events venue given its proximity to the town – weddings, celebratory gatherings, conferences, etc. Plenty of space for car parking, marquees, etc. Someone will snap this up I’m sure.

  5. This was the Fry family home many years ago. I am a Fry. Honestly, a stunning home. Not sure what is going on with the industrial area in the back. Wish I could buy it… I love it. It’s cheap by today’s standards. Is it haunted? What is going on there?
    Heidi Fry

    • Heidi Fry . I am a desendent of Henry Fry. If you are also I would be interested in what branch you are .
      Live in ??

      • My greatgrandmother was Emma Fry, daughter of Henry. She married Thomas Kilillea and emigrated to US. Her son William was my grandfather. Would appreciate any info you could give on the Fry family.

  6. Henry Fry was my 5th great grandfather…how interesting it is to learn about such a great house…….with some family history to it….

  7. I am also a descendent of several Henry Frys. There is an interesting description of Frybrook on the website Ireland Reaching Out ( https://irelandxo.com ). My great-grandmother, Julia, daughter of Henry Fry (1790-1874), was disowned for marrying a Catholic. Oops. There are several places named for Frybrook in North America, including four in the Toronto, Canada area and one in Rhode Island. Patric, I’ll reach out to you on FBook. I am listed as “ouaisse derew.” Hello Edmund. Happy New Year.
