A classical Georgian Mansion built in the Palladian style and enjoying a riverside position fronting onto the River Suir and stunning views over the surrounding verdant countryside, including the Comeragh Mountains and the Galtees to the west. In all about 31 acres or 12.5 hectares.
Marlfield House is a most attractive and imposing 18th century Georgian Mansion set on the banks of the river Suir and including a stretch with fishing rights and a lake within the village of Marlfield. Marlfield represents a wonderful example of Irish architectural excellence and significance with William Tinsley, one of Irelandâ€™s finest architects, and Richard Turner, a highly regarded designer and manufacturer of Glass Houses or Orangeries, were both commissioned works on the house and wider estate.
Built by Col. John Bagwell, MP the central block was burnt circa 1923 and then rebuilt, by Senator John Bagwell, in 1925. The Bagwells were a wealthy and politically influential family in south Tipperary from the 18th to the 20th centuries. The fire in January 1923 was an arson attack by anti-Treaty IRA forces during the Irish Civil War, the house being targeted as John Bagwell was a Senator in the new Irish Free State. Following the rebuilding Marlfield remained in the family until the 1970s when the house and estate lands were sold. Subsequently the first and second floors were divided into apartments but the ground floor and basement remain largely unchanged. The newer sub-divisions on the upper floors being in stud-partitions and seemingly reversible.
