The grand Pouldrew House and Waterfall in Kilmeadan, County Waterford, dates back to 1814 and still boasts many classical early 19th-century features.

The historic Waterford estate is home to an impressive 45 acres of private ground. Within the estate, you can find a 12-acre private lake, a waterfall, and lush woodlands.

Not only that, but Pouldrew House also generates its own hydroelectric power. So, despite its historic nature, this property is looking to the future.

Installed in 1932, the hydroelectric power generating turbine uses the energy of the estate’s waterfall to power the house’s central heating system.
