We can already imagine the glam garden parties...

Party like it's 1922 in a luxurious six-bed manor home in Lucan that's on the market for €1.5 million. 

The garden party as described in famed book The Great Gatsby sounds like an absolute hoot, and one we would love to attend:

"There was music from my neighbor's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars."

Hidden away down a private cul-de-sac is Marshfield House, a period home built in 1713

200 year old Blue Cedars line the driveway as you approach the stately home, which boasts three acres of land beside the River Liffey.

This property has been fully restored by the current owners and retains many period features such as broad pine floorboards, solid panel doors and sash windows, while all the main rooms have fireplaces to keep you cosy. 

Three sunrooms let the light stream in and an original staircase is hand carved. Very fancy indeed.
