Property Ireland: Niall Horan puts stunning Irish mansion on the market
Former One Direction singer Niall Horan has put his Mullingar mansion on the market.
The Slow Hands hit maker bought the house during the boom when it was valued at €1.6 million. It has six bedrooms and was purchased by the performer for his mother Maura so he would have somewhere to stay when he was home.
He also has houses in Los Angeles and London, where he spends most of his time.
This week the fabulous Mullingar residence complete with ten acres and a heated outdoor swimming pool went back on the market with a price tag of €775,000.
Auctioneers Murphy Gubbins have listed it on Daft.ie and said; " This impressive residence provides a delightful opportunity to enjoy peaceful, private countryside.
"The property is presented in key condition and provides generous living space with well-proportioned rooms throughout.
"It enjoys an abundance of bright and spacious reception rooms at ground floor including a games room with a built-in bar and there are six generous bedrooms at first floor level, the majority of which are en-suite."
It said many of the reception rooms enjoy direct access to the surrounding patio area while a selection of the bedrooms feature Juliet balconies.
The auctioneers added: "This truly is an outstanding family home. Externally the property includes just over ten acres of land with blocks built sheds, a timber workshop, a hen house and a westerly facing patio area.
"There are electric gates and stone walls to the front and a tarmacadam driveway.
"The current owners recently installed new windows and external doors throughout the house as well as a new boiler along with stoves in all of the reception rooms and all bathrooms have been recently refurbished."
Niall's parents Maura and Bobby split when he was five years old but he is extremely close to both of them and they have hugely supported his career.
The popstar, 28, was discovered when he went to sing as a solo singer on the smash-hit series the X-Factor. He was then put into a group with the other lads by the Simon Cowell owned show and named One Direction, and they collectively went on to conquer the world and make their fortune.
The singer is a keen golfer and regularly plays at Mullingar Golf Club when he is home.
