What if you could emulate the grandeur of Ireland’s Muckross House in Atlanta? A Buckhead home has done just that, bringing the splendor of the 19th-century Victorian mansion from across the pond and into the upscale Atlanta neighborhood.

The home at 1150 W Garmon Rd. was designed by Harrison Design, a local firm specializing in high-end interiors, architecture and landscape.

It took inspiration from the Irish villa, which was as built for Henry Arthur Herbert, a U.K. parliament politician, and his wife, watercolorist Mary Balfour Herbert, according to the estate’s official website.

Ireland's Muckross House served as an inspiration for the nearly 2-acre estate at 1150 W Garmon Rd NW in Buckhead.

The terrace level features windows from every room and a poolside entertaining space. There’s also a bar with a wine room, gym, sauna and steam room. Four more bedroom suites are in the attached guest wing, helping to bring the bedroom count of this 15,500 square foot home to six. As for bathrooms, there are 13 total, with 8 full baths and 5 half baths.

Construction on the home was completed in early 2020 and the grounds have been redesigned with mature trees, a huge lawn and a wrap-around hardscape surrounding the stone pool house.
