Designed by the eminent architect Sir Thomas Drew, this spectacular period home was built in c. 1877 and is located on an elevated site on the prestigious Alma Road. 

Extremely well preserved well cared for a period home, Gortinore still boasts most of its exquisite original features intact. 

The regal home spans over three floors and measures a whopping c. 345sqm/ 3714sqft. 

And while it is massive, beautiful and full of history – it’s the details we’re mad after. Check out the stained-glass windows and gorrrrge ornate décor.

“Gortinore” and it’s neighbour “Gortnadrew” were both designed and constructed in the 19th and 20th Century, by a well-renowned architect, who had a distinct fondness for church architecture, and a particular attention to detail.

You don’t say…

Apart from the house, he also designed the library and reading room in Trinity College. And not only that, he was also the consulting architect at Christ Church Cathedral.
